  1. 21. Influence of Herring (Clupea harengus) Intake on Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease

    Author : Helen Lindqvist; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Herring; cardiovascular disease; metabolic syndrome; overweight; intima media thickness; lipoproteins; n-3 fatty acids; antioxidants; fish;

    Abstract : This thesis describes four studies that investigated whether or not herring (Clupea harengus) intake decreases cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors. It has previously been shown that fatty fish and fish oil intake decreases the risk of atherosclerosis and CVD. READ MORE

  2. 22. Molecular cloning and characterization of the murine acyl-CoA thioesterase CTE-I

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Per JG Lindquist; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acyl-CoA thioesterase; acyl-CoA; peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha; fatty acid metabolism;

    Abstract : Mouse cytosolic type I acyl-CoA thioesterase (CTE-I) is a member of the type I family of acylCoA thioesterases. These enzymes hydrolyze acyl-CoAs to non-esterified fatty acids (NEFAs) and Coenzyme A (CoA-SH) and are strongly induced in rodent liver by a diverse group of compounds called peroxisome proliferators.

  3. 23. Studies on the assembly and secretion of apolipoprotein B containing lipoproteins

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Karin Lindberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; apolipoprotein B; lipoprotein; lipoprotein biosynthesis; Brefeldin A; microsomal triglyceride transfer protein; liver fatty acid binding protein;

    Abstract : Lipoproteins are water-soluble particles of lipids and proteins, which deliver water-insoluble lipids from intestine or liver to target tissues where the lipids are used as fuel or storage. Lipoproteins consist of a core of hydrophobic lipids surrounded by an amphipatic monolayer of polar lipids and specific proteins, apolipoproteins. READ MORE

  4. 24. Cellular immunity and inflammation in atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Dirk Marcus Wuttge; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; T cell; oxLDL; malondialdehyde; hapten; posttranslational; interleukin-] 5; retinoic acid receptor; inflammation;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis, the major cause of death and disability in western countries, is nowadays recognized as an inflammatory disease. Low density lipoprotein (LDL), the major carrier of cholesterol in plasma, is trapped in the subendothelial space, where compounds inside of LDL are chemically modified through lipid peroxidation.

  5. 25. Characterization of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARa) regulated acyl-CoA thioesterases involved in lipid metabolism

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Laboratory Sciences and Technology

    Author : Mary C Hunt; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acyl-CoA thioesterase; acyl-CoA; peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha; coenzyme A; bile acid metabolism; lipid metabolism.;

    Abstract : The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) is a key nuclear receptor in the control of lipid metabolism. Target genes for PPARalpha include many enzymes involved in the oxidation of fatty acids in mitochondria and peroxisomes. READ MORE
