  1. Caloric restriction reduces IgA levels and modifies cytokine mRNA expression in mouse small intestine

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 22(6):7 (2011) PMID 20951020

    The aim of this study was to determine the effect of caloric restriction (CR) in mouse small intestine on the production and secretion of immunoglobulin (Ig) A, the population of lymphocytes in the lamina propria, and the expression of cytokines that mediate and regulate innate and a...
  2. Retinol inhibits aromatase activity and expression in vitro

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 22(6):5 (2011) PMID 20685100

    We investigated the effect of retinol and selected retinoids on the activity and expression of aromatase in two human carcinoma cell lines in vitro. Retinol (ROH) and all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) significantly inhibited aromatase activity in a concentration-dependent manner in microsomes isolated...
  3. Hyperinsulinemia and ectopic fat deposition can develop in the face of hyperadiponectinemia in young obese rats

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 22(2):11 (2011) PMID 20435456

    We overfed prepubertal, male Sprague-Dawley rats a high-fat diet via total enteral nutrition. Excessive caloric intake led to obesity, increased body weight and fat mass; dyslipidemia; ectopic fat deposition; and hyperinsulinemia (P<.05). Expression of fatty acid transporter FAT/CD36 was elevated in...
  4. Association of MT1A haplotype with cardiovascular disease and antioxidant enzyme defense in elderly Greek population: comparison with an Ita...

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 21(10):7 (2010) PMID 19962295

    Metallothioneins (MT), the antioxidant zinc-binding proteins, seem to mediate cardioprotection. It has been postulated that zinc homeostasis and MT function may be altered, as a consequence of oxidative stress, in cardiovascular disease (CVD), with a potential implication of MT genet...
  5. Luteolin enhances insulin sensitivity via activation of PPAR@c transcriptional activity in adipocytes

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 21(10):7 (2010) PMID 19954946

    We investigated the effect of luteolin on insulin action in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and primary adipose cells. Here we showed that luteolin treatment for 24 h increased the response of glucose uptake to insulin stimulation in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Our results also demonstrated that luteolin enhanced Akt2 pho...

  7. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester is a potent inhibitor of HIF prolyl hydroxylase: structural analysis and pharmacological implication

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 21(9):9 (2010) PMID 19740641

    We investigated a potential molecular mechanism underlying a CAPE-mediated protective effect against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury and analyzed the structure contributing to the CAPE effect. CAPE induced hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) alpha protein, concomitantly transactivating the HIF-1 ta...

  9. Effects of dietary flavonoids on apoptotic pathways related to cancer chemoprevention

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 18(7):16 (2007) PMID 17321735

    Epidemiological studies have described the beneficial effects of dietary polyphenols (flavonoids) on the reduction of the risk of chronic diseases, including cancer. Moreover, it has been shown that flavonoids, such as quercetin in apples, epigallocatechin-3-gallate in green tea and genistein in soy...
  10. Lycopene inhibits matrix metalloproteinase-9 expression and down-regulates the binding activity of nuclear factor-kappa B and stimulatory pr...

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 18(7):8 (2007) PMID 17049831

    We used SK-Hep-1 cells (from a human hepatoma) to test whether lycopene exerts its anti-invasion activity via down-regulation of the expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9, an important enzyme in the degradation of basement membrane in cancer invasion. The activity and expressions of MMP-9 p...
