Palmitoleic acid reduces the inflammation in LPS-stimulated macrophages by inhibition of NF kappa B, independently of PPARs
(Clinical And Experimental Pharmacology And Physiology, 2017-05-01) [Artigo]
Palmitoleic acid (PM, 16:1n-7) has anti-inflammatory properties that could be linked to higher expression of PPAR, an inhibitor of NFB. Macrophages play a major role in the pathogenesis of chronic inflammation, however, ...
Visual analytics of time-varying multivariate ionospheric scintillation data
(Computers and Graphics (Pergamon), 2017-11-01) [Artigo]
We present a clustering-based interactive approach to multivariate data analysis, motivated by the specific needs of scintillation data. Ionospheric scintillation is a rapid variation in the amplitude and/or phase of radio ...
Geocodificação de Acidentes Rodoviários para Identificação de Trechos Críticos com Estatística Espacial
(Anuario do Instituto de Geociencias, 2017-01-01) [Artigo]
Road accidents occur all over the world and end up being a concern to be faced continuously by society and transport safety professionals. The reduction of the number of road accidents is a challenge to society and ...
Supramolecular architectures of iron phthalocyanine Langmuir-Blodgett films: The role played by the solution solvents
(Applied Surface Science, 2017-09-15) [Artigo]
The developing of organic-based devices has been widely explored using ultrathin films as the transducer element, whose supramolecular architecture plays a central role in the device performance. Here, Langmuir and ...
Effects Of Resistance Plus Aerobic Training On Body Composition In Breast Cancer Survivors On Aromatase Inhibitors
(Medicine And Science In Sports And Exercise, 2017-05-01) [Resumo]
Short-term high- and moderate-intensity training modifies inflammatory and metabolic factors in response to acute exercise
(Frontiers in Physiology, 2017-10-31) [Artigo]
Purpose: To compare the acute and chronic effects of high intensity intermittent training (HIIT) and steady state training (SST) on the metabolic profile and inflammatory response in physically active men. Methods: Thirty ...
Bayesian analysis of the generalized gamma distribution using non-informative priors
(Statistics, 2017-01-01) [Artigo]
The Generalized gamma (GG) distribution plays an important role in statistical analysis. For this distribution, we derive non-informative priors using formal rules, such as Jeffreys prior, maximal data information prior ...
Treadmill slope modulates inflammation, fiber type composition, androgen, and glucocorticoid receptors in the skeletal muscle of overtrained mice
(Frontiers in Immunology, 2017-10-25) [Artigo]
Overtraining (OT) may be defined as an imbalance between excessive training and adequate recovery period. Recently, a downhill running-based overtraining (OTR/down) protocol induced the nonfunctional overreaching state, ...
4-Chloro-3-nitro-N-butylbenzenesulfonamide acts on KV3.1 channels by an open-channel blocker mechanism
(Amino Acids, 2017-11-01) [Artigo]
The effects of 4-chloro-3-nitro-N-butylbenzenesulfonamide (SMD2) on KV3.1 channels, heterologous expressed in L-929 cells, were studied with the whole cell patch-clamp technique. SMD2 blocks KV3.1 in a reversible and ...
Factors associated with levels of physical activity in chronic kidney disease patients undergoing hemodialysis: The role of dialysis versus nondialysis day
(Journal of Physical Activity and Health, 2017-09-01) [Artigo]
Background: Patients on hemodialysis (HD) report lower physical activity (PA) levels. We analyzed factors associated with low levels of PA in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and compared PA on HD day and non-HD. ...
