Effects of pomace olive oil-enriched diets on endothelial function of small mesenteric arteries from spontaneously hypertensive rats
(British Journal of Nutrition, 2009-11)
Pomace olive oil (POM), an olive oil subproduct traditionally used in Spain, is a good source of minor components from the unsaponifiable fraction such as triterpenoids, mainly in the form of oleanolic ...
Potential vasorelaxant effects of oleanolic acid and erythrodiol, two triterpenoids contained in ‘orujo’ olive oil, on rat aorta
(British Journal of Nutrition, 2004)
‘Orujo’ olive oil is obtained by chemical processes from the waste resulting from the mechanical extraction of virgin olive oil. The aim of the present study was to evaluate a new pharmacological property ...
Structural (betaalpha) 8 TIM barrel model of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A lyase
(Journal of Biological Chemistry, 2003)
This study describes three novel homozygous missense mutations (S75R, S201Y, and D204N) in the 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) lyase gene, which caused 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric aciduria in ...
MMPs/TIMPs and inflammatory signalling de‐regulation in human incisional hernia tissues
(Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, 2009-03-04)
Incisional hernia is a common and important complication of laparotomies. Epidemiological studies allude to an underlying biological cause, at least in a subset of population. Interest has mainly focused ...
Bone morphogenetic protein-6 promotes cerebellar granule neurons survival by activation of the MEK/ERK/CREB pathway
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) have been implicated in the generation and postnatal differentiation of cerebellar granule cells (CGCs). Here, we examined the eventual role of BMPs on the survival ...
CPT1c is localized in endoplasmic reticulum of neurons and has carnitine palmitoyltransferase activity
(Journal of Biological Chemistry, 2008)
CPT1c is a carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1 (CPT1) isoform that is expressed only in the brain. The enzyme has recently been localized in neuron mitochondria. Although it has high sequence identity with ...
