- Diverse effects of oats on cholesterol metabolism in C57BL/6 mice correlate with expression of hepatic bile acid-producing enzymesKristina E Andersson
Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund University, BMC D12, 221 84, Lund, Sweden
Eur J Nutr 52:1755-69. 2013..Analysis of this difference might offer clues to mechanisms behind the cholesterol-lowering effect of oats. Here, we address the possible roles of hepatic steroid metabolism and the intestinal microbiota in this respect...
- Effects of oats on plasma cholesterol and lipoproteins in C57BL/6 mice are substrain specificKristina E Andersson
Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund University, BMC D12, SE 221 84 Lund, Sweden
Br J Nutr 103:513-21. 2010..The present finding that two substrains of mice respond differently to oats is of practical value, but can also help to elucidate mechanisms of the cholesterol-lowering effect of oats...
- Dietary oats and modulation of atherogenic pathwaysKristina E Andersson
Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
Mol Nutr Food Res 56:1003-13. 2012..Also, there is a lack of epidemiological studies focusing on effects of oat intake on the cardiovascular disease panorama...
- Effects of oat bran, processed to different molecular weights of beta-glucan, on plasma lipids and caecal formation of SCFA in miceTina Immerstrand
Division of Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Department of Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
Br J Nutr 104:364-73. 2010..The results of the present study suggest that the molecular weights and viscous properties of beta-glucan in oat products may not be crucial parameters for their cholesterol-lowering effects...
- Effects of Pediococcus parvulus 2.6 and its exopolysaccharide on plasma cholesterol levels and inflammatory markers in miceCecilia Lindström
Division of Biotechnology, Department of Chemistry, Lund University, Box 124, Lund, SE 221 00, Sweden
AMB Express 2:66. 2012..No changes in blood lipids were detected in any group. Further the EPS induced growth of the caecal tissue and increased the amount of caecal content showing bulking properties like that of a dietary fibre...
- Late onset vascular dysfunction in the R6/1 model of Huntington's diseaseAwahan Rahman
Section for Cell and Tissue Biology, Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund University, BMC D12, Sweden
Eur J Pharmacol 698:345-53. 2013..Our results reveal that arteries in the R6/1 model of Huntington's disease exhibit an age-dependent impairment of contractility and that they depend less on mitochondrial function when they contract...
