  1. Primary vitamin D receptor target genes as biomarkers for the vitamin D3 status in the hematopoietic system.

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 25(8):875 (2014) PMID 24854954

    We studied chromatin domains containing genes for the adhesion molecules CD97 and LRRC8A, the glucose transporter SLC37A2 and the coactivator NRIP1. These domains vary significantly in size (7.3 to 956 kb) but contain each one major VDR-binding site. In monocytic cells these four sites are associate...
  2. Saturated fatty acid (SFA) status and SFA intake exhibit different relations with serum total cholesterol and lipoprotein cholesterol: a mec...

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 25(3):304 (2014) PMID 24524903

    We investigated the relations between fatty acid status and serum total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol ratio in five Tanzanian ethnic groups and one Dutch group. Total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol rati...
  3. Feeding with olive oil attenuates inflammation in dextran sulfate sodium-induced colitis in rat.

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 25(2):186 (2014) PMID 24445043

    Chronic inflammation of long-term ulcerative colitis contributes to an increased risk of colon cancer. Few studies address whether extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) intake suppresses inflammation, cell proliferation and signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) in the experimental coliti...
  4. Grape skin extract protects against programmed changes in the adult rat offspring caused by maternal high-fat diet during lactation.

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 24(12):2119 (2013) PMID 24183306

    We aimed to assess the effect of Vitis vinifera L. grape skin extract (ACH09) on cardiovascular and metabolic disorders in adult male offspring of rats fed a high-fat (HF) diet during lactation. Four groups of female rats were fed: control diet (7% fat), ACH09 (7% fat plus 200 mg kg(-1) d(-1) ACH09...
  5. Increased dietary fat contributes to dysregulation of the LKB1/AMPK pathway and increased damage in a mouse model of early-stage ethanol-med...

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 24(8):1436 (2013) PMID 23465594 PMCID PMC3713161

    The objective of the study was to examine the interaction of moderate and high dietary fat and ethanol with respect to formation of steatosis and regulation of the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) pathway in a mouse model of chronic ethanol consumption. Male C57BL/6J mice were pair-fed a modified...
  6. Glucose homeostasis can be differentially modulated by varying individual components of a western diet.

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 24(7):1251 (2013) PMID 23313044

    Chronic overconsumption of a Western diet has been identified as a major risk factor for diabetes, yet precisely how each individual component contributes to defects in glucose homeostasis independent of consumption of other macronutrients remains unclear. Eight-week-old male Sprague Dawley rats wer...
  7. The citrus flavonone hesperetin prevents letrozole-induced bone loss in a mouse model of breast cancer.

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 24(6):1112 (2013) PMID 23238426

    We employed an established postmenopausal model for breast carcinogenesis to examine the drug interaction between hesperetin and letrozole, one of the AIs. Athymic mice were ovariectomized and transplanted with aromatase-overexpressing MCF-7 cells (MCF-7aro). Hesperetin was administered in the diet...
  8. N-3 PUFAs have antiproliferative and apoptotic effects on human colorectal cancer stem-like cells in vitro.

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 24(5):744 (2013) PMID 22854319

    We cultivated spheres from the SW620 cell line in serum-free medium and evaluated the features of the spheres by immunofluorescence, cell cycle distribution, resistance to chemotherapeutics and soft agar clone formation, and the spheres were shown to be cancer stem-like cells through tumorigenicity...
  9. Soluble plantain fibre blocks adhesion and M-cell translocation of intestinal pathogens.

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 24(1):97 (2013) PMID 22818716 PMCID PMC3520008

    We have focussed on soluble non-starch polysaccharide (NSP) from plantain bananas (Musa spp.) which previous studies showed to be particularly effective at blocking Escherichia coli epithelial adherence. In vitro and ex vivo studies assessed the ability of plantain NSP to inhibit epithelial cell adh...
  10. Attenuation of high-glucose-induced inflammatory response by a novel curcumin derivative B06 contributes to its protection from diabetic pat...

    The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 24(1):146 (2013) PMID 22819547

    We synthesized a novel curcumin analogue (B06) that exhibited an improved pharmacokinetic and enhanced anti-inflammatory activity compared to curcumin. The present study aimed to test the hypothesis that B06 may reduce high-glucose-induced inflammation and inflammation-mediated diabetic complication...
