Different exercise protocols improve metabolic syndrome markers, tissue triglycerides content and antioxidant status in rats
(Biomed Central Ltd., 2011-12-19)
Background: An increase in the prevalence of obesity entails great expenditure for governments. Physical exercise is a powerful tool in the combat against obesity and obesity-associated diseases. This study sought to ...
Experimental analysis of the feasibility of low-cost piezoelectric diaphragms in impedance-based SHM applications
Structural health monitoring (SHM) systems with damage detection based on the electromechanical impedance (EMI) method have received attention in recent decades because of the simplicity of the methodology, which is based ...
Carbohydrate-energy restriction may protect the rat brain against oxidative damage and improve physical performance
(C A B I PublishingWallingfordInglaterra, 2003)
Protective effect of safranine on the mitochondrial damage induced by Fe(II)citrate: Comparative study with trifluoperazine
In this study, we show that safranine at the concentrations usually employed as a probe of mitochondrial membrane potential significantly protects against the oxidative damage of mitochondria induced by Fe(II)citrate. The ...
Bamboo overabundance alters forest structure and dynamics in the Atlantic Forest hotspot
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDOXFORD, 2012-03)
With fast growth rates and clonal reproduction, bamboos can rapidly invade forest areas, drastically changing their original structure. In the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, where recent mapping efforts have shown that woody ...
Determination of the numerical parameters of a continuous damage model for the structural analysis of clay brick masonry
