Reduced cancer mortality at high altitude: The role of glucose, lipids, iron and physical activity
Residency at high altitude (HA) demands adaptation to challenging environmental conditions with hypobaric hypoxia being the most important one. Epidemiological and experimental data suggest that chronic exposure to HA ...
PPAR activation as a regulator of lipid metabolism, nitric oxide production and lipid peroxidation in the placenta from type 2 diabetic patients.
(Elsevier Ireland, 2013-09)
Peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs) are ligand activated transcription factors with crucial functions in lipid homeostasis, anti-inflammatory processes and placental development. Maternal diabetes induces ...
Lipid metabolism of commercial layers fed diets containing aflatoxin, fumonisin, and a binder
Aflatoxins (AF) and fumonisins (FU) are a major problem faced by poultry farmers, leading to huge economic losses. This experiment was conducted to determine the effects of AF (1 mg/kg of feed) and FU (25 mg/kg of feed), ...

Cholesterol, glucose and triglycerides role in the prevalence of hyperlipemia in dogs at higher elevations
Hyperlipidemia is a metabolic disorder that is characterized by a fat concentration increase in blood serum and it is known to be common in dogs. However, there is no information about how this disorder behaves in different ...
Chaperone mediated autophagy in the crosstalk of neurodegenerative diseases and metabolic disorders
(Frontiers Media, 2019)
Chaperone Mediated Autophagy (CMA) is a lysosomal-dependent protein degradation pathway. At least 30% of cytosolic proteins can be degraded by this process. The two major protein players of CMA are LAMP-2A and HSC70. While ...
