N-acetylcysteine in high-sucrose diet-induced obesity: Energy expenditure and metabolic shifting for cardiac health
(Pharmacological Research, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
To study the effects of N-acetylcysteine (NAC, C(5)H(9)-NO(3)S) on high-sucrose diet-induced obesity and its effects on energy metabolism and cardiac oxidative stress, male Wistar 24 rats were divided into four groups (n ...
Alcoholism and alcohol abstinence: N-acetylcysteine to improve energy expenditure, myocardial oxidative stress, and energy metabolism in alcoholic heart disease
(Alcohol, 2009-12-01) [Artigo]
Alcoholism has been associated with a wide range of pathologic conditions, including alcoholic heart disease (AHD). Because AHD may be associated with oxidative stress, antioxidant compounds, such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC) ...
Relationship Among Phenolic Contents, Seed Predation, and Physical Seed Traits in Mimosa bimucronata Plants
(Journal of Plant Biology, 2009-12-01) [Artigo]
Phenolic contents were compared between Mimosa bimucronata seeds from infested and non-infested fruits to assess induced defense response. By measuring leg length of the bruchid beetle Acanthoscelides schrankiae, we verified ...
Resveratrol toxicity: Effects on risk factors for atherosclerosis and hepatic oxidative stress in standard and high-fat diets
(Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2009-06-01) [Artigo]
The beneficial action of moderate wine consumption is increasingly being attributed to resveratrol (trans-3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene). To test the safety of resveratrol use as a dietary supplement, 24 mate Wistar rats were ...
Endogenous and exogenous polyamines in the organogenesis in Curcuma longa L.
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2009-08-04) [Artigo]
The present work evaluated the development of different Curcuma longa L. explants (leaves basis, root tips and ancillary buds from rhizome) stimulated by exogenous polyamines, combined with naphtalenacetic acid (NAA) or ...
Analytical procedure based on slurry sampling for determining selenium in organic vegetable samples by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry
(European Food Research and Technology, 2009-07-01) [Artigo]
This paper presents a simple, fast and sensitive method to determine selenium in vegetable samples by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry through the direct introduction of slurries of the samples into the ...
Genetic polymorphisms related to meat traits in purebred and crossbred Nelore cattle
(Pesquisa Agropecuária Brasileira, 2009-12-01) [Artigo]
O presente trabalho objetivou estimar, em bovinos de corte de diferentes grupos genéticos (Nelore e Nelore x Bos taurus), as frequências alélicas e genotípicas dos polimorfismos CAST/XmnI, do gene da calpastatina, e CAPN530, ...
Effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms of CAPN1 and CAST genes on meat traits in Nellore beef cattle (Bos indicus) and in their crosses with Bos taurus
(Animal Genetics, 2009-08-01) [Artigo]
P>The objectives of this work were to study the segregation of single nucleotide polymorphisms of the calpain 1, large subunit (CAPN1) and calpastatin (CAST) genes in Nellore (Bos indicus) and Nellore xBos taurus beef ...
FAAS determination of metal nutrients in fish feed after ultrasound extraction
(Food Chemistry, 2009-03-15) [Artigo]
This paper proposes a method to determine calcium, magnesium, manganese and zinc in fish feed samples using ultrasound in the analyte extraction process, and subsequent quantification by flame atomic absorption spectrometry ...
