    Full Text Available Objetivo. Enriquecer los huevos de gallina con ácidos grasos omega-3 (n-3 mediante la inclusión de semillas de lino en la dieta. Materiales y métodos. La dieta de las aves fue formulada con niveles de 0 (L0, 10 (L10, 15 (L15 y 20% (L20 de linaza. Se determinó la composición de ácidos grasos por cromatografía de gases y se evaluó la producción y calidad del huevo. Resultados. El porcentaje de producción de huevo fue superior en los grupos L0 y L15 (p<0.05 con 93,0 y 91,5% de producción comparada con 86,0 % en los grupos L10 y L20. La mejor conversión de alimento se presentó también en los grupos L0 y L15. Con la inclusión de semilla de lino, se incrementó el contenido de ácidos grasos n-3 desde 3,0 % en el grupo L0 hasta 12,6 % en el grupo L20, siendo los ácidos grasos n-3 á-linolénico (C18:3, n-3 y docosahexahenóico (DHA, C22:6, n-3 los hallados en mayor concentración. Con la inclusión de linaza en la dieta de las gallinas ponedoras se redujo el contenido de acido linoleico (C18:2n-6, lo cual resultó en una disminución en la relación n-6: n-3. Conclusiones. Con base en la evaluación económica se concluye que es posible enriquecer la yema de huevo de gallina hasta con un 10,1 % de ácidos grasos n-3 mediante la inclusión de un 15 % de linaza en la dieta de las gallinas, sin embargo, esto representó un sobrecosto de producción del 12%.

    Full Text Available Las enfermedades cardiovasculares (ECV constituyen la principal causa de muerte en los países desarrollados y su incidencia va en aumento en los países en desarrollo por lo que se estima que superarán la mortalidad por causas infecciosas en los próximos años. Por ello, es de máxima prioridad desarrollar estrategias encaminadas a identificar las causas de las ECV y cómo prevenir o paliar sus consecuencias. El éxito de cualquier medida preventiva depende en gran parte del conocimiento de los factores de riesgo y del impacto que su modificación pudiera tener sobre la progresión de la enfermedad. Los estudios experimentales, epidemiológicos y de intervención han demostrado los efectos beneficiosos cardiovasculares del consumo de ácidos grasos omega-3 [ácidos eicosapentaenoico (EPA y docosahexaenoico (DHA], los cuales han sido atribuidos a sus efectos antiateroscleróticos, antitrombóticos, antiarrítmicos y antiinflamatorios. En la presente reseña se hace una breve revisión de la estructura química de los ácidos grasos omega-3, las acciones farmacológicas y los mecanismos por los cuales estos ácidos pueden reducir el riesgo cardiovascular, se analizan las evidencias clínicas que soportan su rol cardioprotector. También, se comenta brevemente el perfil de seguridad de estos agentes y las recomendaciones de las guías internacionales relativas a su uso en la prevención y manejo de la enfermedad cardiovascular. Se concluye que teniendo en cuenta los beneficios que aportan para la prevención y tratamiento de las enfermedades cardiovasculares se hace necesario incrementar su consumo a través de la dieta o con suplementos.

    Full Text Available In this paper a comprehensive review of trans-fatty acid levels reported in different types of food products is offered. The lowest levels are found in some types of bread (0,1% while the highest levels (up to 40% are found in fried potatoes. Some foods like shortenings, cakes and pastries may have up to 30% of these fatty acids. In milk and dairy products the reported levels are between 1.50% and 5.20%, in meat and derived products between 0.20% and 21,30%; in chocolates from 0% to 15, 70%. The greatest variability is found in margarines, where a variety has been reported from “trans-free products” to products containing up to 34. 30%. In relation to the trans-fatty acid profile, 18:1t is the most abundant fatty acid found in the majority of foods, followed by C18:2t, C18:3t, C18:1t y C14:1t. Due to the negative health effects of these fatty acids, there is a trend to reduce their levels in food products and to include them in the nutritional label of food packaging.En este trabajo se realiza una exhaustiva revisión bibliográfica de los contenidos en grasos trans en alimentos de distinto origen. Los niveles más bajos se encuentran en algunos tipos de pan (0,10%, y los más elevados (hasta 40%, en algunas muestras de patatas fritas. Alimentos tales como shortenings, algunos tipos de galletas y bollería contienen hasta el 30% de dichos ácidos grasos. En las leches y derivados se encuentran cantidades entre 1,50% y 5,20%; en carnes y derivados entre 0,20% y 21,30%; en chocolates desde cantidades nulas hasta 15,70%. La mayor variabilidad se registra en margarinas, entre las que se encuentran desde las “libres de trans”, hasta algunas con 34,30% de estos ácidos grasos. En cuanto a los distintos isómeros, el mayoritario es el C18:1t seguido del C18:2t, C18:3t, C18:1t y C14:1t. Debido a los efectos desfavorables que presentan sobre la salud se observa en los últimos años una tendencia a reducir este tipo de ácidos grasos en algunos

    Full Text Available Los ácidos grasos, además de su conocido valor energético y su función estructural, presentan otro tipo de propiedades beneficiosas. En concreto, los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados omega-3 actúan sobre el aparato cardiovascular a través de multitud de vías ejerciendo un efecto protector frente al riesgo cardiovascular. Los beneficios asociados a la reducción de la mortalidad cardiaca y en concreto la muerte súbita, están relacionados con la incorporación de EPA y DHA en los fosfolípidos de la membrana de los cardiomiocitos. Se ha establecido un índice que relaciona el porcentaje de EPA+DHA del total de ácidos grasos en los eritrocitos y riesgo de muerte por enfermedad cardiovascular pudiendo estratificarlo en diferentes grados. Por lo tanto, el pescado graso principal fuente de AGPI w-3, se comporta como alimento de referencia en las dietas cardiosaludables.

    Introducción: estudios recientes sugieren que los niveles bajos de acidos grasos poliinsaturados omega-3 se relacionan con una mayor prevalencia de depresion; sin embargo, los resultados no son concluyentes. Objetivo: evaluar la asociacion entre el bajo consumo de acidos grasos omega-3 y la presencia de sintomas depresivos en jovenes universitarios del noroeste de Mexico. Métodos: se realizo un estudio transversal en una muestra de 706 universitarios de 18 a 24 anos de edad de ambos sexos. La presencia de sintomatologia depresiva se estimo con la escala de Depresion del Centro de Estudios Epidemiologicos (CES-D) empleando un punto de corte ≥ 24. El consumo semanal de acidos grasos alfalinolenico (ALA) y de eicosapentaenoico (EPA) mas docosahexaenoico (DHA) en mg/g de alimento se estimo por medio de un cuestionario de frecuencia de consumo de alimentos validado para la poblacion mexicana. La asociacion del consumo de omega-3 con la presencia de sintomas depresivos se evaluo con modelos de regresion logistica. Resultados: el 67% de los participantes fueron mujeres; en general, el 16,6% presentaron sintomatologia depresiva. El consumo bajo de ALA y EPA + DHA no se asocio con mayor prevalencia de sintomatologia depresiva antes y despues de ajustar por confusores. En aquellos casos con sintomatologia depresiva, los niveles ALA derivados solo de las nueces fueron significativamente menores. Conclusiones: en esta poblacion no se observo asociacion entre el bajo consumo de acidos grasos omega-3 y la sintomatologia depresiva. La posible asociacion entre el consumo de nueces y la sintomatologia depresiva requiere de mas estudios.

    Full Text Available Introducción y Objetivos: Teniendo en cuenta la importancia sanitaria del aporte de ácidos grasos omega-3 y omega-6, y ante la escasez de estudios sobre el tema en colectivos españoles, se plantea la conveniencia de conocer la ingesta de estos ácidos grasos, su adecuación a los objetivos nutricionales marcados y sus fuentes alimentarias en una muestra representativa de la población española. Métodos: Se ha estudiado un colectivo de 1068 adultos (521 varones y 547 mujeres de 17 a 60 años, seleccionados en diez provincias españolas, que constituyen una muestra representativa de la población, a nivel nacional. Se determino la ingesta de ácidos grasos poliinsaturados (AGP, ácidos grasos omega-3, α-linolénico (ALA, ácido eicosapentaenoico (EPA y docosahexaenoico (DHA, ácidos grasos omega-6, ácido linoléico (LA y araquidónico, en g/día y en porcentaje de la energía, utilizando un "Registro del consumo de alimentos" durante 3 días consecutivos, incluyendo un domingo, y recogiendo también datos personales, sanitarios y antropométricos de los individuos estudiados. Resultados y Discusión: La ingesta de grasa total y grasa saturada fue superior a la marcada como aconsejable en el 89,2% y 93,3% de los individuos, respectivamente, mientras que con la ingesta de AGP sucede lo contrario, siendo más frecuente el aporte insuficiente (79,2% de los estudiados tienen una ingesta inferior al 6% de la energía. Resulta especialmente bajo el aporte de ácidos grasos omega-3 (1,85 ± 0,82 g/día, que proporcionan menos del 1% de la energía en el 85,3% de los individuos. En concreto el ALA (1,40 ± 0,55 g/día no supera el 0,5% de la energía en el 53,7% de los casos y la suma de EPA+DHA (0,55 ± 0,58 g/día no supera los 0,5 g/día en el 64,6%. Por otra parte, el aporte de ácidos grasos omega-6 fue más adecuado (10,95 ± 3,79 g/día y en concreto el de LA (10,77 ± 3,76 g/día supuso menos del 3% de la energía en el 25,5% de los

    Full Text Available Antecedentes y Objetivos. La creciente complejidad de la Especialidad de Cirugía Plástica, ha inducido a su ramificación en varias subespecialidades. Una de las limitantes de la Cirugía Plástica ha sido la obesidad, enfermedad que conlleva complicaciones, aumenta el riesgo de inconvenientes y hace insuficiente el resultado proyectado para la estética y la función. El objetivo del presente trabajo es mostrar la importancia de la evaluación de la inflamación celular en la preparación de pacientes sometidos a cirugía electiva, previamente tratados con dieta con carbohidratos de baja carga glicémica, ácidos grasos omega 3 y 6 y antioxidantes. Material y Método. Realizamos un estudio longitudinal prospectivo cuasi-experimental no aleatorio de 23 pacientes que solicitaron intervenciones de Cirugía Plástica y aceptaron entrar en el protocolo de diagnóstico y tratamiento de inflamación celular. Primero realizamos el cuestionario de Reporte de Inflamación Celular "RIS" y tomamos a los pacientes pruebas de inflamación celular y de ácido eicosapentaenóico (EPA, ácido decosaexaenóico (DHA, acido araquidónico (AA y ácido dihomogamalinoléico (DGLA al ingreso y antes de la cirugía. Analizamos los datos con estadística descriptiva y comparamos los rangos con la prueba McNemar y de hipótesis t de student, del sistema SPSS. Resultados. Tras aplicar el RIS a los 23 pacientes antes de la preparación con dieta y tras un periodo de 1 a 3 meses, evaluamos las respuestas de cada uno de los cuestionarios a través de las pruebas no paramétricas, encontrando diferencia significativa en los 14 items. Se mejoró considerablemente a la alza el EPA; el DHA y el AA sin cambios significativos; y el DGLA disminuyó considerablemente. Con t de student encontramos variación significativa en los fosfolípidos del plasma y no hubo diferencia significativa entre los DHA y AA. Conclusiones. Demostramos así la efectividad de la dieta de los omegas

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available Introducción: Los ácidos grasos n-3 y n-6 compiten por las mismas elongasas y desaturasas, siendo muy deficiente la síntesis de ácidos grasos poliinsaturados n-3 a partir de ácido linolénico. Los poliinsaturados n-3 previenen enfermedades y son importantes en el desarrollo y mantenimiento de las actividades neuronales, siendo necesaria una relación adecuada con sus antagonistas n-6. En este trabajo se estudia la proporción de estos ácidos grasos. Material y métodos: Se han analizado los ácidos grasos n-3 y n-6 en sueros y fosfolípidos de membrana de 374 niños con neuropatías y de 34 niños sanos, mediante cromatografía de gases con detector de masas. Se ha realizado el estudio estadístico pertinente. Resultados: Los ácidos grasos n-3 (EPA y DHA en suero y su correspondientes fosfolípidos de membrana correlacionan mejor que los de la familia n-6. Los mayoritarios n-6 (LA y ARA están en igual proporción en sueros, siendo más elevados significativamente en los fosfolípidos de los niños sanos. Los n-3 (EPA y DHA tienen valores más altos en los niños sanos, tanto en suero como en fosfolípidos, su suma se iguala en los fosfolípidos de membrana. El índice n-6/n-3 es mayor en los niños con trastorno neurológico en ambas muestras. Conclusión: No siendo la causa de la neuropatía el alto índice n-6/n-3, sin embargo es aconsejable incrementar la ingesta de n-3, sobre todo DHA en toda la población y en especial en los niños con trastornos neurológicos.

    Full Text Available Revisamos las recomendaciones internacionales de ingesta oral de ácidos grasos n-3.y su contenido en las fórmulas de nutrición enteral. Sus acciones metabólicas dependen de su metabolización a EPA y DHA. La actividad de las 5D y 6D desaturasas, que catalizan este proceso, aumenta con el ejercicio, insulina, estrógenos de mujer fértil y proliferadores peroxisómicos, mientras que disminuye con el ayuno, déficit de proteínas y oligoelementos, edad > 30 años, sedentarismo, tabaco, alcohol, colesterol, ácidos grasos trans y saturados, insulinopenia y hormonas de estrés (adrenalina y glucocorticoides. La mayoría de las guías recomiendan 20-35% de la energía total en forma de grasas, repartidas en saturadas 7-10%, poliinsaturadas 6-10% y monoinsutaradas en España 20%. El de AG n-3 es de 0,5-2 g/día o bien 0,5-2% de la ingesta calórica total, con un límite superior de 3 g/día. El de AG n-6 es del 2,5-10% del aporte calórico total y el cociente recomendado n-6/n-3 no está bien definido pero la mayoría recomienan 5/1. El contenido en EPA y DHA, debe ser de al menos los 500 mg diarios. Por último, la ratio EPA/DHA en la mayoría es de 2/1. Las fórmulas de nutrición estándar presentan un contenido en grasas adecuado, pero la mayoría de los productos que contienen EPA y DHA exceden el límite de los 3 g/día. De los productos hiperproteicos y/o concentrados por vía oral sólo un producto de este grupo contiene EPA y DHA. Las del anciano frágil no todas aportan EPA y DHA y las que los contienen, su concentración puede ser incluso excesiva y en una relación poco parecida a la del aceite de pescado.We review the international recommendations on oral intake of n-3 fatty acids and their content in the enteral nutrition formulas. Their metabolic actions depend on their metabolization to EPA and DHA. The activity of desaturases catalyzing this process increases with exercise, insulin, estrogens in the fertile women, and peroxisomal

    Full Text Available Las tasas de prevalencia para las enfermedades alérgicas han incrementado en gran medida en los últimos cincuenta años, tanto en países desarrollados como en vías de desarrollo. En estos últimos, dicho incremento está representado principalmente por la población de niños y adolescentes; un evento que a su vez se concibe como un problema relevante de salud pública mundial. Varios factores han sido propuestos para explicar las causas de esta problemática, entre los que destaca la hipótesis de la dieta, señalando que componentes específicos de la alimentación y cambios en los patrones del mismo propiciarían el desarrollo de las alergias e influirían en el incremento de su prevalencia. En apoyo de lo anterior, la hipótesis de las grasas expone que paralelo al aumento de las alergias a nivel global, ha existido también un consumo excesivo de alimentos con alto contenido de ácidos grasos omega-6 y bajos en omega-3, principalmente en dietas occidentales y como resultado de intervenciones en prevención del riesgo cardiovascular, lo que en conjunto pudiera explicar parte de este fenómeno mundial. La evidencia a nivel epidemiológico y experimental muestra que ambas series de lípidos y varios de sus metabolitos ejercen un importante papel modulador en la patología alérgica, aspectos que serán abordados en la presente revisión temática.

    Full Text Available Objectives: The importance of essential fatty acids, in particular the omega-3 family, in the central nervous system development of newborns is well documented. The flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum is considered one of the best vegetable sources of omega-3 fatty acids. The influence of omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed on the brain development of newborn rats was evaluated. Material and methods: Pups of the F1 generation were obtained from 18 female Wistar rats divided in 3 groups (n = 6, FG: fed with diet based on Flaxseed added with casein, CG: Casein, and MCG: Modified Casein supplemented with fibers and soybean oil. Newborn pups were weighted and submitted to euthanasia; brains were collected for evaluation of weight and lipid profile through gaseous chromatography. Results: Significant increase in brain weight (39% and relative brain weight (37% was verified in pups from mothers fed with flaxseed diet. The omega-3 (n-3 fatty acids from the flaxseed were found in abundance in the diet made with this oleaginous and also significant increase in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA (38%, as well as in total of omega-3 (n-3 fatty acids (62%. Conclusion: Maternal diet of flaxseed during pregnancy influences the incorporation of omega-3 fatty acid in the composition of brain tissue, assuring a good development of this organ in newborn rats.Objetivos: La importancia de los ácidos grasos esenciales, en particular la familia omega-3, en el desarrollo del sistema nervioso central de los recién nacidos está bien documentada.

    Full Text Available Una especie vegetal a gran escala se presenta como una alternativa para la producción de ácidos grasos esenciales en nutrición humana por lo que su composición de ácidos grasos cobra especial importancia. Salicornia bigelovii una halófita que se desarrolla en ambientes áridos y costeros como las del estado de Sonora y de la península de Baja California Sur, México, presenta ser una especie alternativa en la producción de aceites comestibles. La fijación de N2 por bacterias asociadas con raíces de Salicornia bigelovii y halófitas similares son una fuente importante de nitrógeno disponible en ecosistemas costeros. La inoculación de Klebsiella pneumoniae y Azospirillum halopraeferens fue evaluada durante el desarrollo vegetativo de Salicornia bigelovii bajo condiciones de campo en dos genotipos (genotipo silvestre y cv. SOS-10, afectando positivamente variables como peso, longitud de plantas, rendimientos de producción y características bioquímicas como proteína total, ceniza, y contenido de lípidos totales en semilla producida. Nuestros resultados sugieren que ambos genotipos de S. bigelovii, bajo las condiciones de campo empleadas, pueden ser mejorados con la aplicación de K. pneumoniae y A. halopraeferens, mostrando una utilidad potencial para productores agrícolas de zonas semiáridas costeras.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo compara los efectos pleiotrópicos de las estatinas y los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados omega-3 (AGP n-3 en el tratamiento y prevención de enfermedades cardiovasculares (ECV y revisa las posibles interacciones de estos dos grupos de compuestos. Las estatinas son uno de los descubrimientos más importantes realizados en el campo de la medicina cardiovascular en las últimas décadas. Sus efectos beneficiosos cardiovasculares, reduciendo el número de eventos fatales en pacientes con aterosclerosis, se extienden más allá de su capacidad para reducir los niveles de colesterol. Los efectos pleiotrópicos de las estatinas involucran sus propiedades anti-inflamatorias y antiagregantes y su capacidad para normalizar la función endotelial. Además, estos fármacos pueden generar actividad antiarrítmica, mejorar la sensibilidad a la insulina y contrarrestar la hipertensión y la obesidad. La baja tasa de enfermedad coronaria documentada en los esquimales corrobora los efectos cardioprotectores de los AGP n-3 en particular de los AGP eicosapentaenoico (EPA y docosahexaenoico más allá de sus efectos hipolipemiantes. La reducción de las muertes relacionadas con enfermedades cardiovasculares atribuibles a la acción del ácido graso α-linolénico parece estar relacionado a sus potentes propiedades antiarrítmicas. Además, como un precursor del EPA y este a su vez de la formación de tromboxano A3, prostaciclina I3, prostaglandinas de la serie-3 y leucotrienos de la serie 5 e inhibidor/modulador de la formación de tromboxano A2, prostaciclina I2, prostaglandinas de la serie 2 y leucotrienos de la serie 4, el ácido α-linolénico puede reducir la inflamación y la trombogénesis. Los resultados de algunos estudios sugieren que el uso combinado de estatinas y AGP n-3 mejora la protección cardiovascular y reduce la tasa de mortalidad relacionada con ECV, por lo que en este trabajo también se revisan las posibles sinergias entre ambos

    Full Text Available Las enfermedades cardiovasculares son la principal causa de mortalidad en Europa, Estados Unidos y gran parte de Asia. Existen varios factores de riesgo asociados a las enfermedades cardiovasculares, entre ellos están el colesterol total, la homocisteína y los triglicéridos elevados, la hipertensión, la diabetes y niveles reducidos de colesterol HDL. Muchos de estos factores de riesgo son influenciables por la dieta. A pesar de la gran cantidad de alimentos enriquecidos en ácidos grasos n-3 disponibles en el mercado, el conocimiento de los efectos originados por el consumo regular de estos alimentos supone aún un reto en la mayoría de los casos. La ingesta de alimentos enriquecidos en ácidos grasos poliinsaturados n-3 parece ser una opción que puede ser eficaz en la reducción de factores de riesgo de enfermedades, sustituyendo a los suplementos sin originar cambios en los hábitos alimentarios del consumidor. También se muestran los resultados procedentes de un estudio nutricional que hemos llevado a cabo con un alimento funcional de base láctea que contiene ácidos grasos n-3, ácido oleico y vitaminas.Cardiovascular diseases are the main mortality cause in Europe, the USA and a great extent of Asia. There are several risk factors associated with cardiovascular diseases, such as increased total cholesterol, homocysteine and triglycerides, hypertension, diabetes, and reduced levels of HDL-cholesterol. Many of these risk factors are diet influenced. In spite of the great amount of foods enriched with n-3 fatty acids available at the market, the knowledge about the effects produced by regular intake of these foods still is a challenge in the majority of cases. It appears that intake of foods enriches with n-3 polyunsatured fatty acids is an option that may be effective in reducing risk factors for diseases, by substituting supplements without modifying consumer's alimentary habits. Also shown are the outcomes from a nutritional study

    Full Text Available Fueron alimentadas 192 gallinas ponedoras de 22 semanas de edad, de linaje comercial Babcock, durante 30 días con dietas de 0 (cero y 12,7% de semilla de linaza molida que corresponde a 0 y 5% de aceite de linaza, respectivamente. Fueron definidos 8 tratamientos: 4 grupos con 12,7% de semilla de linaza (control/sin antioxidante; BHA+BHT, 100+100 ppm; orégano, 200 ppm; romero, 200 ppm y 4 grupos sin semilla de linaza, pero utilizando los mismos antioxidantes. Este estudio fue realizado con el objetivo de verificar la eficacia del uso de antioxidantes naturales provenientes del orégano y del romero en la protección contra el deterioro oxidativo de la fracción lipídica de las yemas de los huevos enriquecidos con ácidos grasos poliinsaturados omega 3 (PUFA É-3. El grado de oxidación lipídica fue determinado a través de la prueba TBARS (substancias reactivas con ácido tiobarbitúrico. Según los resultados obtenidos, fue verificada diferencia significativa en la reducción del grado de oxidación lipídica de las yemas de huevo en todos los tratamientos con antioxidantes, cuando se compara con el control. Por lo tanto, los extratos de los condimentos, romero y orégano, pueden ser utilizados satisfactoriamente para obtener huevos enriquecidos con PUFA É-3, mejorando la estabilidad lipídica.Foram alimentadas 192 galinhas poedeiras de 22 semanas de idade da linhagem comercial Babcock, durante 30 dias com dietas constituídas de 0 (zero e 12,7% de semente de linhaça moída correspondente a 0 e 5% de óleo de linhaça, respectivamente.

    Full Text Available Introducción: La Nutrición Parental Total (NPT prolongada está asociada con complicaciones potencialmente mortales en la población pediátrica como lo es la colestasis. Dentro del soporte nutricional, la fuente de ácidos grasos, el contenido de fitoesteroles y la dosis de lípidos se han relacionado con el desarrollo de esta complicación. Objetivo: Describir el comportamiento de las pruebas hepáticas en pacientes pediátricos con NPT en quienes se usó lípidos a base de ácidos grasos omega 3 (omegaven®. Métodos: Estudio retrospectivo, en menores de 18 años con tratamiento intravenoso por mínimo 8 días con ácidos grasos omega 3. Los pacientes fueron inicialmente clasificados en dos grupos: colestasis y alteración de pruebas hepáticas. Se evaluó el comportamiento de la transaminasa glutámico oxalacética (TGO, transaminasa glutámico pirúvica (TGP, bilirrubina total (BT, bilirrubina directa, gama glutamil transferasa (GGT y fosfatasa alcalina (FA antes y después del tratamiento con omegaven®. Resultados: 33 pacientes cumplieron los criterios de inclusión. Al finalizar la administración de omegaven®, 82,4% de los pacientes que presentaron inicialmente colestasis mostraron resolución o mejoría. En el grupo de pacientes con alteración de pruebas hepáticas 18,8% progresaron a colestasis. Conclusiones: Nuestro estudio sugiere que el uso de omega-ven® en pacientes pediátricos con NPT y BD > 2 mg/dL, parece revertir o mejorar la colestasis, mientras que en pacientes con alteración de pruebas hepáticas aun no se tiene claro su efecto.

    Full Text Available Objetivo o antecedente: Los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados son importantes para el organismo humano debido a su implicación en numerosas funciones biológicas. Las dietas occidentales se caracterizan por ser excesivamente ricas en ácidos grasos w-6 y pobres en ácidos grasos w-3. Los ácidos grasos de la serie w-3 son necesarios para el normal crecimiento y desarrollo del individuo así como para la regulación de la respuesta inmunológica. El objetivo de este estudio es analizar el efecto de una dieta enriquecida en ácidos grasos w-3 frente a un proceso inflamatorio así como el estudio de los mecanismos implicados en dicho efecto. Intervenciones: Para ello, ratones Balb/c fueron alimentados durante un mes con una dieta cuya fuente lipídica era 100% aceite de girasol (control, o con la misma dieta en la que el 12% de la grasa era aceite de pescado y el resto aceite de girasol (W-3. Doce horas antes de su sacrificio se indujo en una de las orejas de cada animal una dermatitis de contacto que cursó con inflamación y edema. Como agente inflamatorio se utilizó 2,4 dinitrofluorobenceno. Tras el sacrificio se tomaron diversas muestras y se analizaron. Resultados: La inflamación, medida como peso y contenido de agua de las orejas, disminuyó significativamente en los ratones alimentados con w-3. La medida de la infiltración leucocitaria y los parámetros de oxidación revelaron también la mejora en el proceso inflamatorio de dichos ra-tones. Para explicar estos hechos se analizó la expresión de diversas citocinas, observándose un incremento de IL-10 y una disminución de citocinas tanto Th1 como Th2. Conclusiones: Los ácidos grasos w-3 poseen un efecto inmunomodulador al actuar como antiinflamatorios y antialérgicos, al tiempo que aumentan algunas defensas del organismo. La citocina reguladora IL-10 podría ser la responsable del efecto antiinflamatorio ejercido por los ácidos grasos w-3.Introduction: Polyunsaturated fatty acids play

    Full Text Available Aunque el colesterol de las lipoproteinas de baja densidad (LDL-C continua siendo el principal objetivo en el manejo de la dislipidemia, la prevencion de la enfermedad coronaria incluye ademas, la modificacion de otros indicadores tales como la disminucion del colesterol no unido a las lipoproteinas de alta densidad y los trigliceridos sericos (TG, asi como el incremento de las HDL-C. Se reconoce que los aceites de pescado ricos en acidos grasos omega 3 (AG-OMEGA3, los cuales reducen los TG sericos y el colesterol no unido a HDL, pueden disminuir el riesgo de los eventos cardiovasculares a traves de estos efectos y a traves de otros efectos no relacionados con los lipidos (reduccion de la frecuencia cardiaca, efectos antiarritmicos, discreta reduccion de la hipertension arterial y de la agregacion plaquetaria. El efecto de AG-OMEGA3 sobre las HDL y el colesterol total (CT puede ser variable y en ocasiones tiende a incrementar las concentraciones de las LDL-C en el suero. El policosanol ha demostrado que reduce las LDL-C y CT mientras que incrementa las HDL-C en individuos normocolesterolemicos e hiperlipidemicos, con un efecto marginal e inconsistente sobre los trigliceridos. El policosanol administrado concomitantemente con OMEGA-3-FA durante un corto periodo demostro que reduce la LDL-C y el CT mientras que aumenta las HDL-C mas que el placebo AG-OMEGA3 + placebo, sin afectar el efecto reductor de los TG de los AG-OMEGA3. No se ha reportado, sin embargo, la persistencia de tales efectos. Este estudio investiga si los beneficios de la administracion de AG-OMEGA3 + policosanol (AG-OMEGA3-poli persisten despues de una terapia mas prolongada (24 semanas. Despues de un periodo de dieta solamente, 60 pacientes se distribuyeron, aleatoriamente y a doble ciegas, en dos grupos.

    Full Text Available Purpose: omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and can be beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, such as ulcerative colitis. Dextran sodium sulphate (DSS colitis in rats appears to mimic nearly all of the morphological characteristics and lesion distributions of ulcerative colitis. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the efficacy of omega 3 fatty acids in the treatment of experimental ulcerative colitis. Methods: thirty-six Wistar rats were randomly assigned to group A or group B receiving 5% dextran sulfate sodium (DSS in their drinking water for eight days. For the next eight days post-DSS, group A animals received tap-water, and group B animals were fed a nutritional solution containing high levels of omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ProSure®, Abbott Laboratories, Zwolle, Netherlands once per day, administrated with a orogastric feeding tube. Results: animals fed an omega 3 rich diet exhibited a statistically significant increase in hematocrit and hemoglobin levels, compared to animals drinking tap water, and a trend towards histopathological and clinical improvement, with the administration of omega 3 fatty acids ameliorating epithelial erosion by day 8 post-DSS, but no statistically significant difference was observed between group A and group B animals at 4 or 8 days post-DSS. Also, a statistically significant increase in neutrophil infiltration was observed, as depicted by myelohyperoxidase activity. Conclusion: our findings support a positive role of omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids supplementation in an experimental model of ulcerative colitis despite the increased colonic neutrophil infiltration. Further studies are needed in order to investigate the role of increased neutrophils in colonic mucosa.

    Full Text Available The structure and stability of fatty acid monolayers spread on aqueous solutions with ethanol has been studied. The experiments were carried out isothermically using a commercial Langmuir balance (Lauda. Monolayers exhibit solid or condensed liquid structure depending of the ethanol concentration in the subphase. Temperature has not a significant influence on the monolayer. Structure there is a loss of stearic acid film through solution into the adjacent subphase. This loss is increased with the temperature and ethanol concentration in the subphase.

    Monocapas de ácidos grasos. I. Acido esteárico sobre disoluciones acuosas de etanol. Se ha estudiado la estructura y estabilidad de monocapas de ácido esteárico esparcidas sobre disoluciones acuosas que contienen etanol. Las experiencias se han realizado en una balanza de superficie comercial tipo Langmuir y se ha operado en condiciones isotérmicas. Las monocapas presentan estructuras de tipo sólida o de líquido condensado en función de la concentración de etanol en la subfase. La estructura que adopta la monocapa es prácticamente independiente de la temperatura. La pérdida de moléculas de ácido esteárico de la monocapa por disolución en la subfase se incrementa a los valores más elevados de temperatura y de concentración de etanol.

  17. Cross linkage studies with the membranes of the vesicular stomatitis virus using radioactive 4-acido and 5-acido palmitic acid

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the study described here the spatial arrangement of lipids and proteins in the VS virus was investigated on the basis of the covalent cross linkage technique. The formation of such cross linkages is brought about by the action of photosensitive acidosubstituted lipids, which permit acido functions to be introduced into a membrane in a previously defined position. Subsequently, photolysis helps to trigger the generation of radioactive nitrenes that react with the proteins and lipids in their immediate vicinity in a direct and non-selective way. The findings revealed by this study have raised questions as to the possibility of lipid-protein and lipid-lipid interactions, which is also discussed. (orig./MG)

    This study examined the behaviour of a hybrid anaerobic digester in treating pig farm sewage. The experimental model consisted of a 208-litre UASB reactor at the bottom and a 195-litre high-rate sedimentator at the top. The digester was installed on a pig farm and its efficiency in removing volatile (acetic and propionic) fatty acids (VFA) was determined with hydraulic retention time (HTR) as the critical parameter for evaluating the anaerobic system`s performance. The results obtained with the five different HRTs used during the experiment are reported. The highest removal rates were obtained with an HRT of 2.8 days: 98% in the UASB, 28% in the sedimentator and 98% in the digester as a whole. An HRT of 1 day gave VFA removal rates of 40%, 12% and 50% in the UASB reactor sedimentator and digest respectively. (Author) 16 refs.

    The best choice for feeding the newborn child is breast milk, and when it is not possible to breast feed a baby, the breast milk is replaced by lacteal formula, which is why numerous studies focus their attention on the analysis of the diverse components of baby formula as well as functions in the breast fed baby. Fatty acids are components of great nutritional importance in the fetus and in the newborn child. Nowadays it is estimated that the fetus, during the last trimester of the gestational period and the newborn child, during the first six months of life, need a great contribution of araquidonic and docosahexaenoic acids, due to the fact that the speed of transformation of the predecessors to the hepatic level are not sufficient to cover the metabolic requirements of these fatty acids and it is the mother who contributes them through placental transport during gestation and her milk during lactation. The Organization of Food and Agriculture (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Society of Gastroenterology, Hepato logy and Pediatric Nutrition (ESPGHAN) and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that lacteal formula imitate the composition of the breast milk, especially in the fatty polyunsaturated acids (PUFA).

    OMEGA is a CRAY I computer program that controls nine codes used by LLNL Physical Data Group for: 1) updating the libraries of evaluated data maintained by the group (UPDATE); 2) calculating average values of energy deposited in secondary particles and residual nuclei (ENDEP); 3) checking the libraries for internal consistency, especially for energy conservation (GAMCHK); 4) producing listings, indexes and plots of the library data (UTILITY); 5) producing calculational constants such as group averaged cross sections and transfer matrices for diffusion and Sn transport codes (CLYDE); 6) producing and updating standard files of the calculational constants used by LLNL Sn and diffusion transport codes (NDFL); 7) producing calculational constants for Monte Carlo transport codes that use group-averaged cross sections and continuous energy for particles (CTART); 8) producing and updating standard files used by the LLNL Monte Carlo transport codes (TRTL); and 9) producing standard files used by the LANL pointwise Monte Carlo transport code MCNP (MCPOINT). The first four of these functions and codes deal with the libraries of evaluated data and the last five with various aspects of producing calculational constants for use by transport codes. In 1970 a series, called PD memos, of internal and informal memoranda was begun. These were intended to be circulated among the group for comment and then to provide documentation for later reference whenever questions arose about the subject matter of the memos. They have served this purpose and now will be drawn upon as source material for this more comprehensive report that deals with most of the matters covered in those memos.

    Full Text Available Fish oils are the main sources of omega-3 (ω3 polyunsaturated acids (PUFA such as eicosapentaenoic (C20:5ω3 and docosahexaenoic (C22:6ω3 acids. World demand for ω3 PUFA shows an increasing trend mainly due to the growth of the aquaculture industry and also due to the increasing demand for specific PUFA used as food supplements. Bacteria, fungi, microalgae and thraustochytrids are biotechnological PUFA alternatives to fish oils. These sources are characterized by specific PUFA profiles whose productivity depends on strain and growth conditions. PUFA content in bacteria is low; microalgae synthesize mixtures of PUFA; fungi system productivity is low due to long  fermentation times. In heterotrofic cultures of thraustochytrids high concentrations of PUFA can be obtained. Moreover, many strains are able to synthesize a single ω3 PUFA. The optimization of fermentation systems and the development of technology capable of large-scale production are needed in order to make these alternatives feasible.Actualmente, los aceites de pescado son la principal fuente de ácidos grasos poliinsaturados (AGPI del tipo omega-3 (ω3 como el ácido eicosapentaenoico (C20:5ω3 y el ácido docosahexaenoico (C22:6ω3. Se estima que en los próximos años la demanda por AGPI ω3 aumentará debido al crecimiento de la industria acuícola y al incremento en la demanda de AGPI específicos para la elaboración de suplementos alimenticios para humanos y animales. Fuentes alternativas para la producción de AGPI ω3 son bacterias, hongos, microalgas y thraustochytridos. La productividad de estos sistemas depende de las cepas y condiciones de fermentación. En general, las bacterias presentan bajas concentraciones de AGPI; las microalgas producen mezclas de AGPI; la productividad de los cultivos de hongos es baja debido a los largos tiempos de fermentación. A diferencia de éstos, los cultivos heterotróficos de thraustochytridos presentan altas concentraciones de AGPI

    Full Text Available El reducido número de casos de cáncer en la edad pediátrica y las dificultades para la investigación, han contribuido a que existan escasos estudios sobre el estado metabólico y nutricional de estos pacientes. El objetivo principal del trabajo ha sido investigar las posibles alteraciones nutricionales y metabólicas en niños oncológicos, y concretamente el perfil de ácidos grasos plasmáticos tras recibir quimioterapia, comparándolo con el de un grupo de niños sanos. Métodos: Se seleccionaron 12 niños oncológicos con edades comprendidas entre 0 y 16 años, que hubieran recibido al menos un ciclo de tratamiento quimioterápico, un mes antes del estudio y que no estuvieran en fase terminal de la enfermedad. Se realizó encuesta nutricional, medición de valores antropométricos, estudio analítico general y perfil de ácidos grasos en plasma. Resultados: No se detectaron alteraciones en los parámetros antropométricos y bioquímicos nutricionales generales. En los ácidos grasos omega-6, se observaron valores más bajos de linoleico y ácido docosapentaenoico, niveles más altos de gamma-linoleico, y niveles de araquidónico normales. En los omega-3, encontramos valores normales de ácido alfa-linolénico y del ácido docohexanoico, y valores más bajos de ácido eicosapentaenoico. Conclusión: Parece vislumbrarse una deficiencia parcial en el metabolismo de los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados en niños oncológicos, con buen estado nutricional y tras recibir al menos un ciclo de quimioterapia. Por ello, son necesarias futuras investigaciones que permitan plantear suplementos específicos.The small number of cases of cancer in children and the difficulties of research, have contributed to there being few studies on the metabolic and nutritional status of these patients.

Their balance is an important determinant for brain development and in decreasing the risk for coronary heart disease (CHD, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and other autoimmune and possibly neurodegenerative diseases. Both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids influence gene expression. Because of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs in their metabolic pathways, blood levels of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are determined by both endogenous metabolism and dietary intake making the need of balanced dietary intake essential for health and disease prevention. Whether an omega-6/omega-3 ratio of 3:1 to 4:1 could prevent the pathogenesis of many diseases induced by today’s Western diets (AFSSA, 2010, a target of 1:1 to 2:1 appears to be consistent with studies on evolutionary aspects of diet, neurodevelopment, and genetics.

  14. OMEGA Upgrade preliminary design

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The OMEGA laser system at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics of the University of Rochester is the only major facility in the United States capable of conducting fully diagnosed, direct-drive, spherical implosion experiments. As such, it serves as the national Laser Users Facility, benefiting scientists throughout the country. The University's participation in the National Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) program underwent review by a group of experts under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences (the Happer Committee) in 1985. The Happer Committee recommended that the OMEGA laser be upgraded in energy to 30 kJ. To this end, Congress appropriated $4,000,000 for the preliminary design of the OMEGA Upgrade, spread across FY88 and FY89. This document describes the preliminary design of the OMEGA Upgrade. The proposed enhancements to the existing OMEGA facility will result in a 30-kHJ, 351-nm, 60-beam direct-drive system, with a versatile pulse-shaping facility and a 1%--2% uniformity of target drive. The Upgrade will allow scientists to explore the ignition-scaling regime, and to study target behavior that is hydrodynamically equivalent to that of targets appropriate for a laboratory microfusion facility (LMF). In addition, it will be possible to perform critical interaction experiments with large-scale-length uniformly irradiated plasmas

  5. Polar drive on OMEGA

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    High-convergence polar-drive experiments are being conducted on OMEGA [T. R. Boehly et al., Opt. Commun. 133, 495 (1997)] using triple-picket laser pulses. The goal of OMEGA experiments is to validate modeling of oblique laser deposition, heat conduction in the presence of nonradial thermal gradients in the corona, and implosion energetics in the presence of laser-plasma interactions such as crossed-beam energy transfer. Simulated shock velocities near the equator, where the beams are obliquely incident, are within 5% of experimentally inferred values in warm plastic shells, well within the required accuracy for ignition. High, near-one-dimensional areal density is obtained in warm-plastic-shell implosions. Simulated back-lit images of the compressing core are in good agreement with measured images. Outstanding questions that will be addressed in the future relate to the role of cross-beam transfer in polar drive irradiation and increasing the energy coupled into the target by decreasing beam obliquity.

    Advances in the design of a bioreactor in the fats and oils industry have permitted the hydrolysis of triglycerides in mild conditions and improved productivity while avoiding the formation of unwanted byproducts. The present work develops a mathematical model that describes the hydrolytic activity of a tubular reactor with immobilized lipases for the production of glycerol and fatty acids from the oil trade. Runge Kuttas numerical method of high order has been applied, considering that there is no accumulation of the substratum in the surface of the membrane, where the enzyme is. At the same time, different equations based on the kinetic model of Michaelis Mentens and the Ping-Pong bi-bi mechanism were examined. Experimental data in discontinuous systems are the basis for the development of the quantitative mathematical model that was used to simulate the process computationally. The obtained results allow for optimizing both the operative variables and the economic aspects of industrial processes. (Author)

    Full Text Available Introducción: Como consecuencia de las evidencias científicas que indican que la ingesta elevada de ácidos grasos trans es un factor de riesgo de algunas enfermedades, las autoridades sanitarias recomiendan consumos de ácidos grasos trans menores del 1% de la ingesta energética total. Por otra parte, la Comisión Europea deberá presentar, antes del mes de diciembre del año 2014, un informe sobre la presencia de grasas trans en los alimentos y en la dieta de la población de la unión, por lo que este trabajo puede aportar información útil para conseguir ese objetivo. Objetivos: Conocer los contenidos de ácidos grasos trans en algunos grupos de alimentos de la Comunidad de Madrid. Métodos: Se han seleccionado y analizado 170 muestras de diferentes alimentos de consumo habitual entre niños y adolescentes, que fueron adquiridas durante el mes de febrero de 2010 en centros comerciales de la Comunidad de Madrid. Los resultados se han expresado como porcentaje de cada uno de los ácidos grasos frente al total de los que contiene el alimento. Resultados: Únicamente en 33 alimentos (un 19,4% se ha constatado la presencia de ácidos grasos trans por encima del límite de detección de la técnica (≥ 0,1 g por 100 g, encontrándose las cifras más elevadas en el grupo de los derivados lácteos, con un contenido medio de un 0,4%. Discusión/conclusiones: El contenido en ácidos grasos trans en los productos analizados puede considerarse bajo, en comparación con las cantidades que refieren diferentes autores en alimentos comercializados tanto en España como en otros países a lo largo de los últimos años. Es preciso continuar este tipo de estudios para controlar la calidad y seguridad nutricional de la ingesta de grasa por parte de la población española en general y, en particular, niños y jóvenes.

    2010-05-01

    A modification of the alpha-helix, termed the omega-helix, has four residues in one turn of a helix. We searched the omega-helix in proteins by the HELFIT program which determines the helical parameters-pitch, residues per turn, radius, and handedness-and p = rmsd/(N - 1)(1/2) estimating helical regularity, where "rmsd" is the root mean square deviation from the best fit helix and "N" is helix length. A total of 1,496 regular alpha-helices 6-9 residues long with p < or = 0.10 A were identified from 866 protein chains. The statistical analysis provides a strong evidence that the frequency distribution of helices versus n indicates the bimodality of typical alpha-helix and omega-helix. Sixty-two right handed omega-helices identified (7.2% of proteins) show non-planarity of the peptide groups. There is amino acid preference of Asp and Cys. These observations and analyses insist that the omega-helices occur really in proteins.

    Full Text Available Customers are increasingly paying attention to fats and oils because they are strongly health related. Many points are still confusing about this, but certainly there is one that will soon become public concern: the presence of trans fatty acids in hydrogenated fats and their products. Natural fats and oils from vegetable origin lack this trans isomers. Even though the production of the trans isomers during hydrogenation is unavoidable it can be controlled and minimized. The presence of these components modify technical characteristics as well as introduce problems and alterations in health and nutritional aspects. High trans fatty acids values (up 62% were found in Brazilian products. A relevant effect in solid content (SFC at low temperatures was observed but no influence in the softening point. Possible nutritional and health effects related to trans fatty acids will be discussed.

    Actualmente, las grasas y aceites son alimentos observados con mucha atención por los consumidores, por su estrecha relación entre ellos y la salud. Uno de los puntos todavía confusos y que ciertamente vendrá rápidamente a tornarse de dominio público, es la presencia de ácidos grasos trans en grasas hidrogenadas y productos que las contienen. En aceites y grasas de origen vegetal estos isómeros trans están ausentes, y son producidos durante la hidrogenación, este fenómeno es inevitable, pero puede ser controlado y minimizado. La presencia de estos compuestos modifican tanto las características técnicas como también, se sospecha ocasionan problemas y alteraciones desde el punto de vista nutricional y de salud.

    Full Text Available The total and free fatty acid contents were studied in ready for consumption samples of four different varieties of traditional dry-fermented sausages made in Galicia (NW of Spain: Chorizo gallego, Chorizo de cebolla, Androlla and Botillo. No significant differences (p>0.05 were observed in the content of the different total fatty acids among the four sausage varieties. The total fatty acids profile was very similar in the four varieties: the most abundant total fatty acid was oleic (45% of total fatty acids, followed by palmitic (21%, linoleic (14%, estearic (13% and palmitoleic (2%; this profile basically coincides with those described by other authors in pork fat. The total average content of free fatty acids was 2176 mg/100 g of fat in Chorizo gallego, 5223 mg/100 g of fat in Chorizo de cebolla, 2308 mg/100 g of fat in Androlla and 183 mg/100 g of fat in Botillo. These average values in Chorizo gallego, Chorizo de cebolla and Androlla were found in the range of values described for other dry-fermented sausage varieties; the average value in Botillo was clearly lower than those decribed for other fermented sausages. In the four sausage varieties the most abundant free fatty acid was oleic, followed by linoleic, palmitic and estearic. This free fatty acid profile coincides with those described in literature for other dry-fermented sausages. The average content of each individual free fatty acid was significantly (p0.05 were observed in the individual free fatty acid content between Chorizo gallego and Androlla. Using discriminant analysis 100% of the samples of Chorizo de cebolla and Botillo were correctly classified and differentiated from their content in individual free fatty acids. However, only 50% of samples of Chorizo gallego and 25% of samples of Androlla were correctly classified.Se estudiaron los contenidos en ácidos grasos totales y libres en muestras de producto final de cuatro embutidos tradicionales gallegos: Chorizo gallego

  20. An Increase in the Omega-6/Omega-3 Fatty Acid Ratio Increases the Risk for Obesity

    Full Text Available In the past three decades, total fat and saturated fat intake as a percentage of total calories has continuously decreased in Western diets, while the intake of omega-6 fatty acid increased and the omega-3 fatty acid decreased, resulting in a large increase in the omega-6/omega-3 ratio from 1:1 during evolution to 20:1 today or even higher. This change in the composition of fatty acids parallels a significant increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity. Experimental studies have suggested that omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids elicit divergent effects on body fat gain through mechanisms of adipogenesis, browning of adipose tissue, lipid homeostasis, brain-gut-adipose tissue axis, and most importantly systemic inflammation. Prospective studies clearly show an increase in the risk of obesity as the level of omega-6 fatty acids and the omega-6/omega-3 ratio increase in red blood cell (RBC membrane phospholipids, whereas high omega-3 RBC membrane phospholipids decrease the risk of obesity. Recent studies in humans show that in addition to absolute amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acid intake, the omega-6/omega-3 ratio plays an important role in increasing the development of obesity via both AA eicosanoid metabolites and hyperactivity of the cannabinoid system, which can be reversed with increased intake of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA. A balanced omega-6/omega-3 ratio is important for health and in the prevention and management of obesity.

    Due to the polyunsaturated nature of omega-3 fatty acids, lipid oxidation is a major challenge when developing omega-3 enriched foods. In multiphase food systems, several factors can affect lipid oxidation and efficacy of antioxidants, added to prevent lipid oxidation. This review discusses the influence of important factors such as oil quality, delivery systems for omega-3 fatty acids, processing conditions, composition of the food matrix on lipid oxidation in different omega-3 enriched food...

    The biological effects of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are determined by their mutual interactions. This interaction extremely affects various functions. Lower consumption of omega-3 during gestation leads to various disorders, even in hearing. We aimed to assess the effect of low omega-3/omega-6 ratios on auditory nerve conduction. In this experimental study, the auditory brainstem response test was performed on 24-day-old rat (n=14). The rats were divided into case (low omega-3/omega-6 r...

    We report the first observation of an excited singly-charm baryon OmegaC* (css) in the radiative decay OmegaC0 Gamma, where the OmegaC0 baryon is reconstructed in the decays to the final states Omega-pi+, Omega-pi+pi0, Omega-pi+pi-pi+, and Cascade-K-pi+pi+. This analysis is performed using a dataset of 230.7 fb$-1} collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. The mass difference between the OmegaC* and the OmegaC0 baryons is measured to be 70.8 +/- 1.0 (stat) +/- 1.1 (syst) MeV/c2. We also measure the ratio of inclusive production cross sections of OmegaC* and OmegaC0 in e+e- annihilation.

    Full Text Available Presentamos varios casos de pérdida de volumen de diferentes etiologías y en distintas regiones corporales y faciales tratadas mediante injertos de tejido graso autólogo según la técnica de lipoestructura. En ningún caso se realizó sobrecorrección del defecto en ningún caso. La evolución con un seguimiento máximo de 7 años y mínimo de 1 año no mostró disminución del volumen obtenido en el acto quirúrgico en la gran mayoría de los casos. Debido a los resultados obtenidos creemos que el injerto de grasa autólogo es el método de elección para restaurar volúmenes con fines estéticos o reconstructivos.Volume loss in several facial and body areas was treated by means of autologous fatty tissue grafts with lipostructure technique. There were no cases of overcorrection. The patients’ course, with a maximum follow-up of 7 years and a minimum of 1 year did not evidence any loss of the surgically restored tissue volume in the majority of cases. The above results suggest that autologous fat grafts are the method of choice to restore volume for both cosmetic and reconstructive purposes.

Different biochemical and nutritional parameters were assessed. The induction of MHRS produced liver and kidney dysfunction, and elevated oxidative stress, an inflammatory biomarker, endothelin 1, and plasma cholesterol. Reduced plasma high density lipoprotein cholesterol, albumin and Ca and elevated urinary N-acetyl-β-D-Glucosaminidase and liver fats were noticed. The administration of Nigella crude oil that originally had 0.2% total omega-3 fatty acids or its blend with fish oil (17.9% omega-3 or flaxseed oil (42.1% omega-3 significantly improved all biochemical parameters of MHRS. There was no significant difference in the biochemical parameters among the different oil treated groups regardless of the omega-3 fatty acid content. This may point out to the potential profound effect of the volatile oil fraction of Nigella crude oil which may compensates for its low omega-3 content.En el presente estudio, el efecto hepato- y reno-protector de aceites crudos de Nigella sativa y su mezcla binaria con aceites ricos en ácidos grasos omega-3 (pescado y aceites de linaza fue estudiado en un modelo modificado de síndrome hepatorenal (MHRS en ratas. MHRS fue inducido a través de la alimentación de una dieta alta en fructosa seguido de la inyección intraperitoneal de clorhidrato de galactosamina. Diferentes aceites fueron suministrados como dosis oral diaria a ratas con MHRS. Se realizaron dos grupos de control de MHRS y ratas sanas normales. Se

    Det finns ett stort intresse för omega-3 idag på grund av dess många hälsogivande egenskaper. Brist på vissa typer av fett i kosten kan vara en viktig faktor för kognitiv nedsättning, demens och Alzheimers sjukdom. Dokosahexaensyra (DHA) är den dominerande omega-3-fettsyran i hjärnan. Det finns många faktorer som förklarar varför fettsyraintaget kan påverka kognitiva funktioner och risken att bli dement. Obduktionsstudier visar att patienter med Alzheimer har mindre mängd DHA i hjärnan än kog...

    Full Text Available In the context of research into the lipids of higher plant, the fatty acid composition of eleven species is reported. These species belong to nine families, and most of them are common in the Mediterranean flora.
    Oils from some plants (Arctium tomentosum, Hypericum perforatum, Linaria vulgaris. Pulicaria dysenterica, Smilax áspera were partially hydrolyzed, and contained free fatty acids. Arctium tomentosum seed oil and, to a lesser extent, Smilax áspera seed oil, showed a trans absorption band in their IR spectra. Small quantities of waxes were present in Pulicaria dysenterica and Silybum marianum seed oil.
    The fatty acid composition of the oils from these plants approaches levels found in food oils as well as industrial oils. Three species showed high levels of their predominant fatty acid: Alliaria petiolata (erucic acid, 41.5%, Linaria vulgaris and Pulicaria dysenterica (linoleic acid, 70 and 72% respectively. In the seed oil of Arctium tomentosum four fatty acids were not identified: one of them could be 3(t, 9(c, 12(c- octadecatrienoic acid. But the most complex composition was that of Atriplex hortensis oil, which contained thirty three fatty acids, of which fifteen were unknown.

    En el marco de investigaciones sobre los lípidos de las plantas superiores, se presenta la composición en ácidos grasos de once especies. Estas especies pertenecen a nueve familias diferentes y la mayoría son frecuentes en la flora mediterránea.
    Numerosos aceites (Arctium tomentosum, Hypericum perforatum,Linaria vulgaris, Pulicaria dysenterica y Smilax áspera contienen glicéridos parciales y ácidos grasos libres. El aceite de Arctium tomentosum, y en menor grado, el de Smilax áspera muestran una banda espectral trans en espectrometría IR. En los aceites de Pulicaria dysenterica y de Silybum marianum peque

    The exclusive electroproduction of omega mesons, ep -> e omega p, has been studied in the kinematic range 3 pi^+pi^-pi^0. The exclusive (ep -> e omega p) cross section in the above kinematic region is 0.108 +- 0.014(stat.) +- 0.026(syst.) nb. The reaction ep -> e phi p, phi -> pi^+pi^-pi^0, has also been measured. The cross sections, as well as the cross-section ratios omega/rho and omega/phi, are presented as a function of W and Q^2. Thus, for the first time, the properties of omega electroproduction can be compared to those of rho^0, phi and J/psi electroproduction at high W.

    In FY15, LLNL’s High-Energy-Density Physics (HED) and Indirect Drive Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF-ID) programs conducted several campaigns on the OMEGA laser system and on the EP laser system, as well as campaigns that used the OMEGA and EP beams jointly. Overall these LLNL programs led 468 target shots in FY15, with 315 shots using just the OMEGA laser system, 145 shots using just the EP laser system, and 8 Joint shots using Omega and EP together. Approximately 25% of the total number of shots (56 OMEGA shots and 67 EP shots, including the 8 Joint shots) supported the Indirect Drive Inertial Confinement Fusion Campaign (ICF-ID). The remaining 75% (267 OMEGA shots and 86 EP shots) were dedicated to experiments for High-Energy-Density Physics (HED). Highlights of the various HED and ICF campaigns are summarized in the following reports.

    We undertake a critical evaluation of recent observational information on $\\Omega_m$ and $\\Omega_\\Lambda$ in order to identify possible sources of systematic errors and effects of simplified statistical analyses. We combine observations for which the results have been published in the form of likelihood contours in the $\\Omega_m ,\\Omega_\\Lambda$ plane. We approximate the contours by fifth order polynomials, and we then use the maximum likelihood method to obtain joint likelihood contours for the combined data. In the choice of statistical merits we aim at minimum loss of information rather than at minimum variance. We find that $\\Omega_0 = \\Omega_m + \\Omega_\\Lambda = 0.99\\pm 0.04 \\pm 0.03$, where the first error is mainly statistical and the second error is systematical. In a flat Universe we find $\\Omega_m^{flat} = 0.31 \\pm 0.04 \\pm 0.04$.

    Full Text Available The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is a powerful model organism to study functions of polyunsaturated fatty acids. The ability to alter fatty acid composition with genetic manipulation and dietary supplementation permits the dissection of the roles of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in many biological process including reproduction, aging and neurobiology. Studies in C. elegans to date have mostly identified overlapping functions of 20-carbon omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in reproduction and in neurons, however, specific roles for either omega-3 or omega-6 fatty acids are beginning to emerge. Recent findings with importance to human health include the identification of a conserved Cox-independent prostaglandin synthesis pathway, critical functions for cytochrome P450 derivatives of polyunsaturated fatty acids, the requirements for omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in sensory neurons, and the importance of fatty acid desaturation for long lifespan. Furthermore, the ability of C. elegans to interconvert omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids using the FAT-1 omega-3 desaturase has been exploited in mammalian studies and biotechnology approaches to generate mammals capable of exogenous generation of omega-3 fatty acids.

    Full Text Available Although the peroxide value is a common measurement of lipid oxidation, its use is limited to the initial stages of oxidation. Since peroxides are vulnerable to further decomposition, the complete oxidative history of the oil may not be revealed. The anisidine test a measure of secondary oxidation products, is considered useful in that it shows the past history of the oil. Effects of accelerated storage test on the anisidine and peroxide values of commercially samples were studied. The results obtained indicate that the anisidine value is a good method to predict storage stability of fats. Some processing steps in producing edible fats and oils were studied. Bleaching clay performs decomposition of oxidation products and this effect alone would reduce the peroxide value. Comparative studies were undertaken to determine the effects of bleaching on the anisidine value. Analysis of damaged oils before and after deodorization showed that little reduction of anisidine value occurred.

    El índice de anisidina como medida del deterioro latente de un material graso. A pesar de que el índice de peróxido es una medida corriente de la oxidación de los lípidos, su uso está limitado a las etapas iniciales de dicha reacción. Como los peróxidos pueden sufrir descomposiciones posteriores, la historia oxidativa completa del aceite no se conoce por ellos. Se considera que el índice de anisidina, una medida de los productos de la oxidación secundaria, es muy útil para evaluar el pasado del aceite. Se estudiaron los efectos del almacenamiento acelerado de muestras comerciales sobre los índices de anisidina y de peróxido. Los resultados obtenidos indican que el índice de anisidina es un buen método para predecir dicha estabilidad. Se estudiaron algunas etapas del procesamiento de las grasas y aceites comestibles. Las arcillas de blanqueo producen la descomposición de los productos de oxidación y este efecto sólo puede reducir el

Como parte del tratamiento se recomienda los diabéticos, sustituir en las dietas los ácidos grasos saturados y el colesterol por ácidos grasos monoinsaturados; sin que estén del todo claro los mecanismos bioquímicos que beneficiarían a los pacientes. Es probable, entre otros mecanismos, que los ácidos grasos monoin­saturados aumenten la sensibilidad a la insulina. Esta revisión analiza la relación entre el tipo de ácido graso en la dieta y la resistencia a insulina en la diabetes mellitus tipo 2.One of the most important characteristic in the obese patient with diabetes mellitus type 2 is the noticeable insulin resistance. Physicians recommended to these patients replace saturated fatty acids and cholesterol by greater dietary monounsaturated fatty acids content, without being absolutely sure about the biochemical mechanisms by which, this change, might help then. It is possible that monounsaturated fatty acids increase sensitivity to the insulin within another mechanism.

    Full Text Available To study the effect of freezing and different thawing methods on the moisture, fat an fatty acid content of fried sardines, fresh sardine fillets were first frozen and then some were thawed either in a refrigerator at 4°C or in a microwave over prior to frying. These fillets were then analyzed both before and after being fried in olive oil. Frying increased the fat content of the fillets, mainly due to water losses, especially in those thawed in the refrigerator. Mono-unsaturated fatty acid (MUFA content increased in fresh and frozen fillets after frying from 21% to 55% and 56%, respectively. However, thawing prior to frying had a different effect depending on the method because oleic acid absorption was facilitated by refrigerator-thawing, the MUFA content increased to 61,8%, whereas after microwave-thawing the MUFA content reached 47%. Saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids decreased in fried fillets compared to uncooked ones as a consequence of the increase in MUFA. Frying decreased the C22:6/C16:0 ratio with respect to fresh fillets in frozen fillets and in those thawed in the refrigerator but not in those thawed in a microwave.

    Filetes de sardinas frescas, congeladas y descongeladas en frigorífico a 4°C o en microondas se analizaron en crudo y después de freírlos en aceite de oliva, con objeto de conocer si la congelación y descongelación, previa a la fritura, alteraba los cambios en humedad, grasa y composición en ácidos grasos que introdujera la fritura. El contenido graso (g/100g de filetes de sardinas se incrementó durante el proceso de fritura, debido, sobre todo, a las pérdidas de agua. Dicho efecto aumentó principalmente en la descongelación en frigorífico. Con la fritura, la sardina fresca y la congelada sin previa descongelación se enriquecieron en ácido oleico, ascendiendo el contenido de ácidos grasos monoinsaturados en (AGM del 21 al 55-56%. La descongelación, anterior a la fritura, influyó de forma

    We discuss the mass spectrum of $\\Omega$ baryon with two heavy quarks and one light quark (\\textit{ccs, bbs and bcs}). The main goal of the paper is to calculate the ground state masses and after that, the positive and negative parity excited states masses are also obtained within a Hypercentral Constituent quark model, using coulomb plus linear potential framework. We also added first order correction to the potential. The mass spectra upto 5S for radial excited states and 1P-5P, 1D-4D and 1F-2F states for orbital excited states are computed for $\\Omega_{cc}$, $\\Omega_{bb}$ and $\\Omega_{bc}$ baryons. Our obtained results are compared with other theoretical predictions which could be a useful complementary tool for the interpretation of experimentaly unknown heavy baryon spectra. The Regge trajectory is constructed in both ($n_r$, $M^{2}$) and ($J$, $M^{2}$) planes for $\\Omega_{cc}$,$\\Omega_{bb}$ and $\\Omega_{bc}$ baryons and their slopes and intercepts are also determined.

    The interaction of intense laser light with dielectric materials is a fundamental applied science problem that is becoming increasingly important with the rapid development of ever more powerful lasers. To better understand the behavior of optical components in large fusion-class laser systems, we are systematically studying the interaction of high-fluence, high-power laser light with high-quality optical components, with particular interest on polishing/finishing and stress-induced defects and surface contamination. We focus on obtaining comparable measurements at three different wavelengths, 1{omega} (1053 nm), 2{omega} (527 nm), and 3{omega} (351 nm).

  12. Respiration gating and Bloch fitting improve pH measurements with acidoCEST MRI in an ovarian orthotopic tumor model

    2016-03-01

    We have developed a MRI method that can measure extracellular pH in tumor tissues, known as acidoCEST MRI. This method relies on the detection of Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) of iopamidol, an FDA-approved CT contrast agent that has two CEST signals. A log10 ratio of the two CEST signals is linearly correlated with pH, but independent of agent concentration, endogenous T1 relaxation time, and B1 inhomogeneity. Therefore, detecting both CEST effects of iopamidol during in vivo studies can be used to accurately measure the extracellular pH in tumor tissues. Past in vivo studies using acidoCEST MRI have suffered from respiration artifacts in orthotopic and lung tumor models that have corrupted pH measurements. In addition, the non-linear fitting method used to analyze results is unreliable as it is subject to over-fitting especially with noisy CEST spectra. To improve the technique, we have recently developed a respiration gated CEST MRI pulse sequence that has greatly reduced motion artifacts, and we have included both a prescan and post scan to remove endogenous CEST effects. In addition, we fit the results by parameterizing the contrast of the exogenous agent with respect to pH via the Bloch equations modified for chemical exchange, which is less subject to over-fitting than the non-linear method. These advances in the acidoCEST MRI technique and analysis methods have made pH measurements more reliable, especially in areas of the body subject to respiratory motion.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se analizan con parámetros de composición 58 puestas de trucha arcoiris obtenidas, manejadas y monitoreadas individualmente en desempeño desde la fertilización hasta finalizar la etapa de reabsorción de vesícula. Además de los valores reproductivos, el contenido de ácidos grasos en las ovas se determinó en fresco, mediante cromatografía de gases. En el perfil medio se destacan los ácidos palmítico (C16, oleico (C18:1n-9 y docosahexaenoico (C22:6n-3 como los más representativos, con casi el 60% del total y, en general, en concentraciones estables entre las hembras. Tanto para cada ácido determinado como para el conjunto de contenidos integrados de las series n-3 y n-6, y los colectivos de saturados (SAF, monoinsaturados (MUFA y poliinsaturados (PUFA, se define un patrón de composición similar al reportado para la especie en otros esquemas de manejo y bajo regímenes nutricionales variables. Se analizó la condición conservativa en la incorporación de ácidos grasos al huevo, y se discutió su utilidad como posibles definitorios de calidad, teniendo como referente la alta variabilidad registrada en la supervivencia al final del proceso de incubación.

A sample of 10 ml was collected from 32 cows that had been lactating at least 60 days, but not longer than 120 days. A group (FV, n = 25 was free-ranged grazed on green fresh pasture (sarcocaulescent shrub semiarid area, La Paz, B.C.S. during the wet season (September-October 2009. The second group (HA, n = 7 was penned and fed fodder of alfalfa hay. The FA analysis revealed that there were less saturated FA in the FV group (P < 0.05. This difference was basically explained by the lesser content of 14:0, 15:0, and 16:0. The concentration of total monounsaturated FA was higher in FV (P < 0.05, given by the higher concentration of 18:1 n-9 and 18:1 n-7 trans-11. The total concentration of polyunsaturated FA was similar for both groups, but there was a higher concentration of 18:2 n-6 and 18:2 n-7 cis-9 trans-11 in the FV group (P < 0.01. The proportion of omega-3 FA was similar for both groups, but the concentration of omega-6 FA was higher in FV (P < 0.01, resulting in an increased omega-6:omega-3 ratios in the FV group compared to HA. It is concluded that Chinampo cows left to free-range on fresh green pasture reduced the total saturated FA of

    Polar direct drive (PDD), a promising ignition path for the NIF while the beams are in the indirect-drive configuration, is currently being investigated on the OMEGA laser system by using 40 beams in six rings repointed to more uniformly illuminate the target. The OMEGA experiments are being performed with standard, “warm” targets with and without the use of an equatorial “Saturn-like” toroidally shaped CH ring. Target implosion symmetry is diagnosed with framed x-ray backlighting using additional OMEGA beams and by time-integrated x-ray imaging of the stagnating core.

    The total cross section for omega production in the pp -> pp omega reaction has been measured at five c.m. excess energies from 3.8 to 30 MeV. The energy dependence is easily understood in terms of a strong proton-proton final state interaction combined with a smearing over the width of the state. The ratio of near-threshold phi and omega production is consistent with the predictions of a one-pion-exchange model and the degree of violation of the OZI rule is similar to that found in the pi-p -> n omega/phi reactions.

    Full Text Available Due to the polyunsaturated nature of omega-3 fatty acids, lipid oxidation is a major challenge when developing omega-3 enriched foods. In multiphase food systems, several factors can affect lipid oxidation and efficacy of antioxidants, added to prevent lipid oxidation. This review discusses the influence of important factors such as oil quality, delivery systems for omega-3 fatty acids, processing conditions, composition of the food matrix on lipid oxidation in different omega-3 enriched foods (milk, yoghurt, mayonnaise and mayonnaise-based salads, dressing, energy bar and fish paté. Moreover, the effect of different antioxidants (tocopherol, EDTA, lactoferrin, caffeic acid, ascorbic acid, ascorbyl palmitate, propyl gallate, gallic acid, as well as lipophilized antioxidants is compared in different food systems.

    Full Text Available How can we resolve the conflict between the strong epidemiological evidence pointing to the usefulness of fish—and, thus, omega 3—consumption with the debacle of supplementation trials? One potential explanation is that the null results obtained thus far are the consequences of ill-contrived investigations that do not allow us to conclude on the effects (or lack thereof of omega 3 fatty acid supplementation. One potential solution is through the use of lipidomics, which should prove very useful to screen suitable patients and to correlate plasma (or red blood cells, or whole blood, or phospholipid fatty acid profile with outcomes. This has never been done in omega 3 trials. The wise use of lipidomics should be essential part of future omega 3 trials and would help in untangling this current riddle.

The addition of fish oil to food products is attractive to both the consumers and the food industry. Indeed, these components will improve nutritional value...... and add product value. Omega-3 PUFAs are rich in double bonds in their fatty acid chains and this attribute renders them highly susceptible to lipid oxidation.

    Cardioceuticals are nutritional supplements that contain all the essential nutrients including vitamins, minerals, omega-3-fatty acids and other antioxidants like a-lipoic acid and coenzyme Q10 in the right proportion that provide all round protection to the heart by reducing the most common risks associated with the cardiovascular disease including high low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride levels and factors that contribute to coagulation of blood. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to significantly reduce the risk for sudden death caused by cardiac arrhythmias and all-cause mortality in patients with known coronary heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are also used to treat hyperlipidemia and hypertension. There are no significant drug interactions with omega-3 fatty acids. The American Heart Association recommends consumption of two servings of fish per week for persons with no history of coronary heart disease and at least one serving of fish daily for those with known coronary heart disease. Approximately 1 g/day of eicosapentaenoic acid plus docosahexaenoic acid is recommended for cardio protection. Higher dosages of omega-3 fatty acids are required to reduce elevated triglyceride levels (2-4 g/day). Modest decreases in blood pressure occur with significantly higher dosages of omega-3 fatty acids.

    Full Text Available Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA of the n-3 series are essential for normal growth and development. The health effects of these fatty acids include reduction of cardiovascular risk due to antiarrhythmic, antiinflammatory, anti-thrombotic and lipid lowering actions. An increase in unsaturation of the muscle membrane fatty acids is associated with improved insulin sensitivity. Higher proportion of n-3 fatty acids may have beneficial roles, such as antiobesity effects and protection against the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus through a number of metabolic effects. However, controversy exists on the different effects of n-6 and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as on the interacting effect of dietary saturated and monounsaturated fat. In addition, some adverse effects have been described concerning the use of fish oil supplements containing high doses of n-3 fatty acids. Several studies show Eskimos diabetes risk, while results of nutritional interventions on the influence of consuming diets rich in oily fish or other food rich in n-3 fatty acids is very limited. This article reviews the possible mechanisms through which n-3 PUFA are involved in glucose level control and insulin sensitivity. Intervention and epidemiological studies together with recent findings on the nutrigenomic field related with this subject are also briefly reviewed.Los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados (AGP de la serie n-3 son esenciales para el crecimiento normal y el desarrollo.

By means of correlation and discriminant analysis the samples have been grouped and classified. It is shown that fatty acid are usefull parameters for quality control analysis of mustard sauces.

    Se determinaron, por cromatografía gaseosa, el perfil de los ácidos grasos en mostaza (semilla y harina, salsas de mostaza con grano y salsas finas de mostaza con el objeto de caracterizarlas en relación con la semilla base. El ácido erúcico fue el más abundante en la mostaza y en las salsas finas (27,7 % y 24,6 % del contenido total de ácidos grasos, seguido de los ácidos oleico (20,0 % y 21,1 % y linoleico (16,3 y 16.2 %. En las salsas de mostaza con grano el ácido graso mayoritario fue el linolénico (21,4 % seguido de los ácidos linoleico (20,3 % y oleico (19,3 %. Mediante los análisis de correlación y discriminante las muestras son agrupadas y clasificadas. Los ácidos grasos han demostrado ser parámetros válidos para el análisis del control de calidad de las salsas de mostaza.

    Full Text Available The modification of dietary patterns has led to a change in fatty acid consumption, with an increase in the consumption of ω-6 fatty acids and a markerd reduction in the consumption of ω-3 fatty acids. This in turn has given rise to an imbalance in the ω-6/ω-3 ratio, which is now very different from the original 1:1 ratio of humans in the past. Given the involvement of ω-6 and ω-3 essential fatty acids in disease processes, the present article examines changes in dietary patterns that have led to the present reduction in the consumption of ω-3 essential fatty acids, and to study the importance of the ω-6/ω-3 balance in maintaining good health. In addition, an assese-ment is made of the established recommendations for preventing a poor intake of ω-3 essential fatty acids, and the possible options for compensating the lack of these fatty acids in the diet.La modificación de los hábitos alimentarios ha llevado a un cambio en el consumo de ácidos grasos, con una aumento de los ácidos grasos ω-6 y una marcada reducción en el consumo de los ácidos grasos ω-3. Esto a su vez ha dado lugar a un desequilibrio en la relación ω-6/ω-3, muy diferente de la proporción original 1:1 que tenían los seres humanos en el pasado. Dada la importancia de la relación entre los ácidos grasos esenciales ω-6 y ω-3 en el desarrollo de diferentes enfermedades, en el presente artículo se examinan los cambios en los hábitos alimentarios que han llevado a la reducción en el consumo de ácidos grasos esenciales ω-3, y se estudia la importancia de este equilibrio en el mantenimiento de la salud. Además, se realiza una evaluación de las recomendaciones establecidas para prevenir una deficiencia en la ingesta de ácidos grasos esenciales ω-3, y las posibles opciones para compensar la falta de esos ácidos grasos en la dieta.

    Full Text Available The minimum fat richness of avocados necessary for marketing of the fruit is 8%, although after vegetative maturation values of about 20% or more are reached, the values depending on the variety. In the period between harvesting, when commercial maturity is reached, and full maturation, not only is the fat content increased but changes also occur in the fat composition, the unsaturated fatty acids increasing while the amount of saturated fatty acids decreases.

    La riqueza grasa mínima exigida al aguacate para su salida al mercado es del 8%, aunque en la maduración vegetativa se alcanzan valores de alrededor del 20% o más según variedades. En el período que transcurre desde el corte del fruto, de acuerdo con la madurez comercial, hasta la completa madurez del mismo no sólo aumenta la riqueza grasa, sino que se ha observado una evolución del contenido graso, de forma que hay un aumento de los ácidos grasos Insaturados en detrimento del contenido en ácidos grasos saturados.

    Full Text Available We give the results obtained for the determination of trans fatty acids in subcutaneous and intramuscular fats from different pork samples, using gas chromatography. Values obtained are low and similar in both kind of fats, with a mean value of 0.6% of C18:1 trans. A clear influence of animal feeding is detected due to the significant differences of this isomer content between samples from different origin. Also, correlations have been observed between C18:1 t. content and saturated, mono, polinsaturated fatty acids and fat intramuscular contents.

    Se presentan los resultados obtenidos en la determinación de ácidos grasos trans en una serie de muestras de tejidos subcutáneo y muscular, procedentes de canales de cerdo, mediante cromatografía en fase gaseosa. Ambos tipos de grasas presentan valores similares y relativamente bajos, con un valor medio del 0.6% de 018:1 t. Se detecta una marcada influencia de la alimentación, puesta de manifiesto por las diferencias significativas obtenidas para los contenidos de C18:1 trans, en función del origen de las muestras. Igualmente, se recogen las correlaciones obtenidas entre los contenidos de C18:1 t. y los de ácidos grasos saturados, monoinsaturados y poliinsaturados, así como con el contenido graso intramuscular.

    The paper presents status of three studies involving the $\\omega$ meson using data collected by the KLOE detector. The first two projects are feasibility studies performed on simulated data concerning an upper limit measure ment of BR($\\Phi \\to \\omega \\gamma$) and the form factor measurement in the $\\omega\\to\\pi^0l^+l^-$ dalitz decay. The third study shows the effect $\\pi^0 - \\pi^0$ interference has in the $\\omega\\to\\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^0$ Dalitz plot when $\\omega$ is produced through the $e^+e^-\\to\\omega\\pi^0$ channel.

    Rare charmless hadronic B decays are particularly interesting because of their importance in understanding the CP violation, which is essential to explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in our universe, and of their roles in testing the ''effective'' theory of B physics. The study has been done with the BABAR experiment, which is mainly designed for the study of CP violation in the decays of neutral B mesons, and secondarily for rare processes that become accessible with the high luminosity of the PEP-II B Factory. In a sample of 89 million produced B{bar B} pairs on the BABAR experiment, we observed the decays B{sup 0} {yields} {omega}K{sup 0} and B{sup +} {yields} {omega}{rho}{sup +} for the first time, made more precise measurements for B{sup +} {yields} {omega}h{sup +} and reported tighter upper limits for B {yields} {omega}K* and B{sup 0} {yields} {omega}{rho}{sup 0}.

  20. A protective lipidomic biosignature associated with a balanced omega-6/omega-3 ratio in fat-1 transgenic mice.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Giuseppe Astarita

    Full Text Available A balanced omega-6/omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA ratio has been linked to health benefits and the prevention of many chronic diseases. Current dietary intervention studies with different sources of omega-3 fatty acids (omega-3 lack appropriate control diets and carry many other confounding factors derived from genetic and environmental variability. In our study, we used the fat-1 transgenic mouse model as a proxy for long-term omega-3 supplementation to determine, in a well-controlled manner, the molecular phenotype associated with a balanced omega-6/omega-3 ratio. The fat-1 mouse can convert omega-6 to omega-3 PUFAs, which protect against a wide variety of diseases including chronic inflammatory diseases and cancer. Both wild-type (WT and fat-1 mice were subjected to an identical diet containing 10% corn oil, which has a high omega-6 content similar to that of the Western diet, for a six-month duration. We used a multi-platform lipidomic approach to compare the plasma lipidome between fat-1 and WT mice. In fat-1 mice, an unbiased profiling showed a significant increase in the levels of unesterified eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, EPA-containing cholesteryl ester, and omega-3 lysophosphospholipids. The increase in omega-3 lipids is accompanied by a significant reduction in omega-6 unesterified docosapentaenoic acid (omega-6 DPA and DPA-containing cholesteryl ester as well as omega-6 phospholipids and triacylglycerides. Targeted lipidomics profiling highlighted a remarkable increase in EPA-derived diols and epoxides formed via the cytochrome P450 (CYP450 pathway in the plasma of fat-1 mice compared with WT mice. Integration of the results of untargeted and targeted analyses has identified a lipidomic biosignature that may underlie the healthful phenotype associated with a balanced omega-6/omega-3 ratio, and can potentially be used as a circulating biomarker for monitoring the health status and the efficacy of omega-3 intervention in humans.

    Full Text Available The introduction of the two-phases extraction systems of olive oil require a exhaustive control of the oil contained in the produced olive-pomace. The analytical techniques in use are not useful for online analysis. The feasibility of near-infrared technique for the analysis of oil and moisture in two-phases olive-pomace is studied. The laboratory results are satisfactory so the development of a online NIR-based sensor for olive-pomace can be proposed.

    La implantación de los sistemas de extracción de aceite de oliva en dos fases hace necesario un control exhaustivo del grado de agotamiento de los orujos producidos. Las técnicas actualmente en uso no permiten realizar un control en línea de forma satisfactoria. Se estudia la viabilidad de la técnica NIR (infrarrojo cercano para el análisis del contenido graso y la humedad de estos orujos. Los resultados obtenidos a nivel de laboratorio son satisfactorios, lo que permite proponer la técnica NIR como base para el desarrollo de un analizador en línea de los orujos.

    We describe searches for B meson decays to the charmless vector-vector final states omega K* and omega rho in 89 million B-Bbar pairs produced in e+e- annihilation at sqrt(s)=10.58 GeV. We measure the following branching fractions in units of 10^{-6}: BF(B0 -> omega K*0) = 3.4 +1.8 -1.6 +/- 0.4 ( omega K*+) = 3.5 +2.5 -2.0 +/- 0.7 ( omega rho0) = 0.6 +1.3 -1.1 +/- 0.4 ( omega rho+) = 12.6 +3.7 -3.3 +/- 1.6. The first error quoted is statistical, the second systematic, and the upper limits are defined at 90% confidence level. For B+ -> omega rho+ we also measure the longitudinal spin alignment fraction f_L = 0.88 +0.12 -0.15 +/- 0.03 and charge asymmetry Ach = (5 +/- 26 +/- 2)%.

  3. String theory of the Omega deformation

    Hellerman, Simeon; Reffert, Susanne

    2011-01-01

    In this article, we want to turn on real masses for the fields in the effective low energy gauge theory describing the motion of a stack of D2-branes. We do so by placing the D2-branes into the T-dual of a fluxbrane background. We furthermore show that the fluxbrane background is the string theory realization of an Omega-deformation of flat space in the directions transverse to the branes where the deformation parameters satisfy epsilon_1 = - epsilon_2. This Omega-deformation therefore serves to give real masses to the chiral fields of the gauge theory.

  4. Bubble chamber: Omega production and decay

    1973-01-01

    This image is of real particle tracks taken from the CERN 2 m liquid hydrogen bubble chamber and shows the production and decay of a negative omega particle. A negative kaon enters the chamber which decays into many particles, including a negative omega that travels a short distance before decaying into more particles. The invention of bubble chambers in 1952 revolutionized the field of particle physics, allowing real tracks left by particles to be seen and photographed by expanding liquid that had been heated to boiling point.

    Initial delivery for mathematical analysis of the Omega Ontology. We provide an analysis of the hierarchical structure of a version of the Omega Ontology currently in use within the US Government. After providing an initial statistical analysis of the distribution of all link types in the ontology, we then provide a detailed order theoretical analysis of each of the four main hierarchical links present. This order theoretical analysis includes the distribution of components and their properties, their parent/child and multiple inheritance structure, and the distribution of their vertical ranks.

    The developmentally-dependent differences in the biological significances and effects of PUFA-OMEGA-6 (namely of arachidonic acid) and PUFA-OMEGA-3 (namely of docosahexaenoic acid) are discussed. The clinical results as well as developmental experiences are indicating a hypothesis of the evolution...... that created mutual relationship between those two substances (with immunological basis and following recuperation). The anti-inflammatory actions of PUFA-OMEGA-3 are the most visible (and significant) contrasts as compared with the large affects of namely arachidonic acid and its metabolites....

    In an experiment in the CERN-SPS charged-hyperon beam, the main Omega /sup -/ decay branching ratios have been measured to be Gamma ( Omega /sup -/ to Lambda K/sup -/)/ Gamma (all)=0.686+or-0.013, Gamma ( Omega /sup -/ to Xi /sup 0/ pi /sup -/)/ Gamma (all) =0.234+or-0.013, Gamma ( Omega /sup -/ to Xi /sup -/ pi /sup 0/)/ Gamma (all)=0.080+or-0.008. The relative branching ratio of the two Xi pi modes provides a test of the Delta I=1/2 rule in decuplet-octet transitions. A search has also been made for the rare decay modes Omega /sup -/ to Lambda pi /sup -/, Omega /sup -/ to Xi /sup -/ gamma , Omega /sup -/ to Xi /sup -/ pi /sup +/ pi /sup -/ and Omega /sup -/ to Xi /sup 0/e/sup -/ nu .

    A measurement of the spin of the Omega^- hyperon produced through the exclusive process Xi_c^0 --> Omega^- K^+ is presented using a total integrated luminosity of 116 fb^-1 recorded with the BABAR detector at the e^+ e^- asymmetric-energy B-Factory at SLAC. Under the assumption that the Xi_c^0 has spin 1/2, the angular distribution of the Lambda from Omega^- --> Lambda K^- decay is inconsistent with all half-integer Omega^- spin values other than 3/2. Lower statistics data for the process Omega_c^0 --> Omega^- pi^+ from a 230 fb^-1 sample are also found to be consistent with Omega^- spin 3/2. If the Xi_c^0 spin were 3/2, an Omega^- spin of 5/2 cannot be excluded.

    Pre-clinical studies suggest that both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids have beneficial effects on peripheral nerve function. Rats feed a diet rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) showed modification of phospholipid fatty acid composition in nerve membranes and improvement of sciatic nerve conduction velocity (NCV). We tested the hypothesis that baseline plasma omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids levels predict accelerated decline of peripheral nerve function. Changes between baseline and t...

    We show how estimates of parameters characterizing inflation-based theories of structure formation localized over the past year when large scale structure (LSS) information from galaxy and cluster surveys was combined with the rapidly developing cosmic microwave background (CMB) data, especially from the recent Boomerang and Maxima balloon experiments. All current CMB data plus a relatively weak prior probability on the Hubble constant, age and LSS points to little mean curvature (Omega_{tot} = 1.08\\pm 0.06) and nearly scale invariant initial fluctuations (n_s =1.03\\pm 0.08), both predictions of (non-baroque) inflation theory. We emphasize the role that degeneracy among parameters in the L_{pk} = 212\\pm 7 position of the (first acoustic) peak plays in defining the $\\Omega_{tot}$ range upon marginalization over other variables. Though the CDM density is in the expected range (\\Omega_{cdm}h^2=0.17\\pm 0.02), the baryon density Omega_bh^2=0.030\\pm 0.005 is somewhat above the independent 0.019\\pm 0.002 nucleosynth...

The angular distributions of the decay pions are consistent with {\\it s}-channel helicity conservation. When compared to low energy data, the features of $\\omega$ photoproduction as measured at HERA energies are in agreement with those of a soft diffractive process. Previous measurements of the $\\rho^0$ and $\\phi$ photoproduction cross sections at HERA show a similar behaviour.

    The differential cross sections and unpolarized spin-density matrix elements for the reaction $\\gamma p\\to p\\omega$ were measured using the CBELSA/TAPS experiment for initial photon energies ranging from the reaction threshold to 2.5 GeV. These observables were measured from the radiative decay of the $\\omega$ meson, $\\omega\\to\\pi^0\\gamma$. The cross sections cover the full angular range and show the full extent of the $t$-channel forward rise. The overall shape of the angular distributions in the differential cross sections and unpolarized spin-density matrix elements are in fair agreement with previous data. In addition, for the first time, a beam of linearly-polarized tagged photons in the energy range from 1150 MeV to 1650 MeV was used to extract polarized spin-density matrix elements. These data were included in the Bonn-Gatchina partial wave analysis (PWA). The dominant contribution to $\\omega$ photoproduction near threshold was found to be the $3/2^+$ partial wave, which is primarily due to the sub-thr...

    Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is currently the primary target in the management of dyslipidemia, and statins are first-line pharmacologic interventions. Adjunct therapy such as niacins, fibrates, bile acid sequestrants, or cholesterol absorption inhibitors may be considered to help reduce cardiovascular risk. This review discusses the need for alternative adjunct treatment options and the potential place for omega-3 fatty acids as such. The cardiovascular benefits of fish consumption are attributed to the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and a variety of omega-3 fatty acid products are available with varied amounts of EPA and DHA. The product types include prescription drugs, food supplements, and medical foods sourced from fish, krill, algal and plant oils or purified from these oils. Two prescription omega-3 fatty acids are currently available, omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters (contains both EPA and DHA ethyl esters), and icosapent ethyl (IPE; contains high-purity EPA ethyl ester). A pharmaceutical containing free fatty acid forms of omega-3 is currently in development. Omega-3 fatty acid formulations containing EPA and DHA have been shown to increase LDL-C levels while IPE has been shown to lower triglyceride levels without raising LDL-C levels, alone or in combination with statin therapy. In addition, recent studies have not been able to demonstrate reduced cardiovascular risk following treatment with fibrates, niacins, cholesterol absorption inhibitors, or omega-3 fatty acid formulations containing both EPA and DHA in statin-treated patients; thus, there remains a need for further cardiovascular outcomes studies for adjunct therapy.

    Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with multiple double bonds. Linolenic and alpha-linolenic acids are omega-6 and omega-3 PUFAs, precursors for the synthesis of long-chain PUFAs (LC-PUFAs), such as arachidonic acid (omega-6 PUFA), and eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids (omega-3 PUFAs). The three most important omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic, eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids, which cannot be synthesized in enough amounts by the body, and therefore they must be supplied by the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the correct functioning of the organism and participate in many physiological processes in the brain. Epilepsy is a common and heterogeneous chronic brain disorder characterized by recurrent epileptic seizures leading to neuropsychiatric disabilities. The prevalence of epilepsy is high achieving about 1% of the general population. There is evidence suggesting that omega-3 fatty acids may have neuroprotective and anticonvulsant effects and, accordingly, may have a potential use in the treatment of epilepsy. In the present review, the potential use of omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of epilepsy, and the possible proposed mechanisms of action are discussed. The present article summarizes the recent knowledge of the potential protective role of dietary omega-3 fatty acids in epilepsy.

    Background Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are functionally the most important omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). Oral supply of these fatty acids increases their levels in plasma and cell membranes, often at the expense of the omega-6 PUFAs arachidonic acid (ARA) and linoleic acid. This results in an altered pattern of lipid mediator production to one which is less pro-inflammatory. We investigated whether short term intravenous supply of omega-3 PUFAs co...

    We present an analysis of inclusive Omega_c^0 baryon production and decays in 230.5 fb^-1 of data recorded with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+ e- collider at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Omega_c^0 baryons are reconstructed in four final states (Omega- pi+, Omega- pi+ pi0, Omega- pi+ pi+ pi-, Xi- K- pi+ pi+) and the ratios of branching fractions for these final states are measured. We also measure the momentum spectrum of the Omega_c^0 baryons in the e+ e- center-of-mass frame. From the spectrum, we observe Omega_c^0 production from B decays and in ccbar events, and extract the two rates of production.

    Full Text Available Introducción: La dieta es importante para el suministro de ácidos grasos del hombre, en especial los de las familias n-3 y n-6, por su esencialidad y las amplias funciones fisiológicas relacionadas. Es importante tener valores de referencia en las muestras biológicas accesibles, tales como suero y membranas eritrocitarias, con el fin de paliar posibles déficit. El objetivo del presente trabajo consiste en cuantificar los ácidos grasos esenciales (AGE presentes en dichas muestras, desde la C6 hasta la C26. Material y métodos: Se han efectuado las determinaciones de los ácidos grasos de 30 niños sanos en suero y en sus correspondientes fosfolípidos de membrana de células sanguíneas, mediante su extracción lipídica, metilación, separación y cuantificación en cromatografía de gases con detección de masas. Se han comparado los valores obtenidos en cada suero y su pareja de membranas celulares. Resultados y discusión: Se han obtenido los valores normales en niños sanos. El C16, que supone la cuarta parte de todos los ácidos grasos, está en la misma proporción en ambas muestras; entre el resto, no se encuentra una correspondencia clara entre ambos valores. Entre los n-6, el C18:2n6 está en mayor proporción en suero, frente al C20:4n6 que lo está en los fosfolípidos. De igual forma, entre los n-3, el C20:5n3 está en mayor proporción en suero y el C22:6n3 lo está en fosfolípidos de membrana. Dichos valores son la causa de procesos distintos, aporte nutricional reciente para el suero y con implicaciones a largo plazo y metabólicas los valores en los fosfolípidos de las membranas.

    Metabolic endotoxemia, commonly derived from gut dysbiosis, is a primary cause of chronic low grade inflammation that underlies many chronic diseases. Here we show that mice fed a diet high in omega-6 fatty acids exhibit higher levels of metabolic endotoxemia and systemic low-grade inflammation, while transgenic conversion of tissue omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids dramatically reduces endotoxemic and inflammatory status. These opposing effects of tissue omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids can be eliminated by antibiotic treatment and animal co-housing, suggesting the involvement of the gut microbiota. Analysis of gut microbiota and fecal transfer revealed that elevated tissue omega-3 fatty acids enhance intestinal production and secretion of intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP), which induces changes in the gut bacteria composition resulting in decreased lipopolysaccharide production and gut permeability, and ultimately, reduced metabolic endotoxemia and inflammation. Our findings uncover an interaction between host tissue fatty acid composition and gut microbiota as a novel mechanism for the anti-inflammatory effect of omega-3 fatty acids. Given the excess of omega-6 and deficiency of omega-3 in the modern Western diet, the differential effects of tissue omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids on gut microbiota and metabolic endotoxemia provide insight into the etiology and management of today's health epidemics.

    Polar direct drive (PDD), a promising ignition path for the National Ignition Facility while the beams are in the indirect-drive configuration is currently being investigated on the OMEGA laser system by using 40 beams in six rings re-pointed to more uniformly illuminate the target. The OMEGA experiments are being performed with standard, 'warm' targets (865 {mu}m long diameter, 20 {mu}m thick, polymer (CH) shells filled with 15-atm D{sub 2}) with and without the use of an equatorial 'Saturn-like' toroidally shaped CH ring (nominal dimensions: 2.2 mm long diameter measured to ring center, 0.3 mm thick). For the Saturn case, the plasma formed around the ring refracts light toward the target equator as the ring plasma expands. The nominal laser drive is a 1 ns flat pulse, {approx} 400 J per beam, employing 1 THz, 2 dimensional smoothing by spectral dispersion (SSD) with polarization smoothing. Target implosion symmetry is diagnosed with framed X-ray back-lighting using additional OMEGA beams and by time-irradiated X-ray imaging of the stagnating core. The best results have been obtained with Saturn targets by varying the beam pointing and ring diameter, achieving about 75% of the fusion yield from symmetrically illuminated targets with the same total energy (60 beams, 15.3 kJ).

The influence of urea/fatty acid ratio and crystallization temperature have been studied on both fatty acids recovery yield and fatty acid concentration. Methanol and ethanol have been used as urea solvent. The use of methanol and an urea/fatty acid ratio of 4:1, and 4°C were found to be the best conditions for SA (concentration 8,5%, yield 71,6 and DHA (59,8% and 100%, respectively. However, 28ºC was found to be the best temperature for EPA (28,7% and 75,6%, respectively. At temperatures below -12ºC, PUFAs also developed adducts compounds, mainly adducts derived from EPA. A variance analysis showed the urea/fatty acid ratio as the main factor affecting fatty acid concentration. At the same time, high urea/fatty acid ratios resulted in increased influence of the solvent used, being more favorable for methanol.

    The optimal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) is important for keeping the homeostasis of biological processes and metabolism, yet the underlying biological mechanism is poorly understood. The objective of this study was to identify changes in the pig liver transcriptome induced by a diet enriched with omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids and to characterize the biological mechanisms related to PUFA metabolism. Polish Landrace pigs (n = 12) were fed diet enriched with linoleic acid (LA, omega-6) and α-linolenic acid (ALA, omega-3) or standard diet as a control. The fatty acid profiling was assayed in order to verify how feeding influenced the fatty acid content in the liver, and subsequently next-generation sequencing (NGS) was used to identify differentially expressed genes (DEG) between transcriptomes between dietary groups. The biological mechanisms and pathway interaction networks were identified using DAVID and Cytoscape tools. Fatty acid profile analysis indicated a higher contribution of PUFAs in the liver for LA- and ALA-enriched diet group, particularly for the omega-3 fatty acid family, but not omega-6. Next-generation sequencing identified 3565 DEG, 1484 of which were induced and 2081 were suppressed by PUFA supplementation. A low ratio of omega-6/omega-3 fatty acids resulted in the modulation of fatty acid metabolism pathways and over-representation of genes involved in energy metabolism, signal transduction, and immune response pathways. In conclusion, a diet enriched with omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids altered the transcriptomic profile of the pig liver and would influence animal health status.

    Full Text Available Life expectancy at birth has regularly increased decade after decade, especially since the beginning of the 20th century: 15 years have been gained over the past 50 years. Changes in living and dietary habits during this time period have been associated with the development of various pathologies which represent a growing socioeconomic burden. Among age-related disorders, ocular diseases are the second most prevalent ones after 65 years. Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD is the leading cause of visual impairment after the age of 50 years. Age is the prominent risk factor for AMD and is accompanied with both endogenous (including genetics and environmental factors, such as smoking habits and dietary factors (diet rich in cholesterol and saturated fatty acids. AMD is characterized by the loss of cells at the most central area of the retina, called macula. The neural retina is a highly structured neurosensory tissue that is responsible for the transduction pathway. The transduction pathway is initiated in photoreceptors where the light stimulus is coded into an electrical signal. This signal is transmitted to neighboured neurons and transferred to the brain via the optic nerve. The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE is the cellular and metabolic interface between the neural retina and choriocapillaris through Bruch’s membrane. The close association between RPE and photoreceptors is one of the factors that promote the efficacy of RPE to, in the one hand, provide nutrients and oxygen to photoreceptors and, in the other hand, eliminate the metabolic debris originating from shedding of the outer segments. Epidemiological data suggest that dietary habits privileging the consumption of omega- 3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids participate to prevent from the development of AMD (Sangiovanni et al., 2009. The mechanisms underlying the effects of omega-3 fatty acids remain unclear until now. The purpose of the present paper is to give a review on

Omega-3 PUFA can be converted in the body to longer-chain n-3 PUFA at a limited rate and are differently converted in body systems. It appears that when specific longer-chain n-3 PUFA are desired these need to be supplemented directly in the diet. In different species some evidence indicates a potential effect on improving insulin sensitivity. Recently, a novel class of n-3 PUFA-derived anti-inflammatory mediators have been recognized, termed E-series and D-series resolvins, formed from EPA and DHA, respectively. N-3 PUFA derived resolvins and protectins are heavily involved in the resolution of inflammation. Supplementation with n-3 fatty acids in horses may help manage chronic inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis, equine metabolic syndrome, laminitis, and thereby help to improve longevity of sport horse.

  8. New insights into the health effects of dietary saturated and omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids

    Full Text Available Abstract Cardiovascular diseases and cancers are leading causes of morbidity and mortality. Reducing dietary saturated fat and replacing it with polyunsaturated fat is still the main dietary strategy to prevent cardiovascular diseases, although major flaws have been reported in the analyses supporting this approach. Recent studies introducing the concept of myocardial preconditioning have opened new avenues to understand the complex interplay between the various lipids and the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The optimal dietary fat profile includes a low intake of both saturated and omega-6 fatty acids and a moderate intake of omega-3 fatty acids. This profile is quite similar to the Mediterranean diet. On the other hand, recent studies have found a positive association between omega-6 and breast cancer risk. In contrast, omega-3 fatty acids do have anticancer properties. It has been shown that certain (Mediterranean polyphenols significantly increase the endogenous synthesis of omega-3 whereas high intake of omega-6 decreases it. Finally, epidemiological studies suggest that a high omega-3 to omega-6 ratio may be the optimal strategy to decrease breast cancer risk. Thus, the present high intake of omega-6 in many countries is definitely not the optimal strategy to prevent cardiovascular disease and cancers. A moderate intake of plant and marine omega-3 in the context of the traditional Mediterranean diet (low in saturated and omega-6 fatty acids but high in plant monounsaturated fat appears to be the best approach to reduce the risk of both cardiovascular diseases and cancers, in particular breast cancer.

  12. Role of Omega-3 PUFAs in Neurobiological Health.

    Grant, R; Guest, J

    2016-01-01

    The importance of the essential, dietary-derived, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) omega-6 and omega-3 to human health was first reported over 85 years ago. Subsequent research has revealed many beneficial effects of the omega-3 PUFAs in particular. This has been linked to their involvement in multiple biochemical functions, including synthesis of inflammatory mediators, cell membrane fluidity, intracellular signalling and gene expression. Through these pathways, the omega-3 PUFAs help modulate aspects of inflammation and immunity, cell growth and tissue repair. While a detailed understanding of the mechanisms involved in the role of omega-3 PUFAs to health in the central nervous system (CNS) is still to be elucidated, a role for both inflammatory modulation and a direct impact on neuronal membrane fluidity and receptor function is apparent. At least partially through these mechanisms, low omega-3 levels have been associated with CNS-linked disorders such as poor cognition, depression, anxiety disorders, poor anger control, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and accelerated neurodegeneration in the elderly.Following a brief introduction to the history and chemistry of the omega-3 family of PUFAs, this chapter will provide an overview of the omega-3 fatty acids and how various members of this PUFA family influence central nervous system function leading towards either health or disease.

  13. Extracting the Omega- electric quadrupole moment from lattice QCD data

    The Omega- has an extremely long lifetime, and is the most stable of the baryons with spin 3/2. Therefore the Omega- magnetic moment is very accurately known. Nevertheless, its electric quadrupole moment was never measured, although estimates exist in different formalisms. In principle, lattice QCD simulations provide at present the most appropriate way to estimate the Omega- form factors, as function of the square of the transferred four-momentum, Q2, since it describes baryon systems at the physical mass for the strange quark. However, lattice QCD form factors, and in particular GE2, are determined at finite Q2 only, and the extraction of the electric quadrupole moment, Q_Omega= GE2(0) e/(2 M_Omega), involves an extrapolation of the numerical lattice results. In this work we reproduce the lattice QCD data with a covariant spectator quark model for Omega- which includes a mixture of S and two D states for the relative quark-diquark motion. Once the model is calibrated, it is used to determine Q_Omega. Our prediction is Q_Omega= (0.96 +/- 0.02)*10^(-2) efm2 [GE2(0)=0.680 +/- 0.012].

    Full Text Available The article presents some general facts about omega-3 fatty acids and their role in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the human body. Their beneficial effects in the prevention of cardiovascular disease have been known for decades. Since then, several epidemiological and interventional trials showed the value of omega-3 acids in the treatment of certain diseases. Most of them revealed the protective role of omega-3 fatty acids on heart and cardiac functions. However, some of these studies couldn?t demonstrate a positive association between fish oils and preventing cardiac events. The major cardiologic societies from European Union and United States of America recommend omega-3 fatty acids as supplements for primary and secondary prophylaxis of cardiovascular diseases.

    We determine the value of the omega -rho- pi mesons coupling (g_{omega rho pi}), in the context of the vector meson dominance model, from radiative decays, the omega -> 3 pi decay width and the e^+e^- -> 3 pi cross section. For the last two observables we consider the presence of a contact term as the manifestation of a heavier resonance and find its magnitude to be close to other approaches. Our global average is g_{omega rho pi} =13.73 \\pm 1.51 (g_{omega rho pi} =13.38 \\pm 1.52) without (with) contact term. The value obtained is sensible to the inclusion of the contact term but the current precision does not allow to draw a definite conclusion.

    2015-01-01

    The presence of a weak second-harmonic field in an intense-laser ionization experiment affects the momentum-resolved electron yield, depending on the relative phase between the $\\omega$ and the $2\\omega$ component. The proposed 'phase-of-the-phase spectroscopy' quantifies for each final electron momentum a relative-phase contrast (RPC) and a 'phase of the phase' (PP), describing how much and with which phase lag, respectively, the yield changes as function of relative phase. Experimental results for RPC and PP spectra for rare gas atoms and CO$_2$ are presented. The PP spectra demonstrate a rather universal structure with pronounced features that allow to distinguish photoelectrons that rescatter during the first or the second return to their parent ion. Details in the PP and RPC spectra are target sensitive and thus may be used to extract structural (or even dynamical) information with high accuracy.

    The dichroic effects in the multiphoton ionization of the ground state hydrogen atom by a coherent superposition of a laser beam and its third harmonic, are studied via perturbative calculations. The final state of the photoelectrons, which has the energy E=E{sub 1}+3(h/2{pi}){omega} (E{sub 1} the ground state energy and {omega} the laser frequency), is reached by two interfering quantum paths: (a) absorption of one harmonic photon and (b) absorption of three laser photons. In the chosen regime of field intensities, the radiative corrections to the absorption of one harmonic photon may be disregarded. Our numerical results illustrate the influence of the laser frequency, of the relative intensity and of the harmonic phase upon the dichroic signal. (author)

  10. New portrait of Omega Nebula's glistening watercolours

    Science.gov (United States)

    2009-07-01

    The Omega Nebula, sometimes called the Swan Nebula, is a dazzling stellar nursery located about 5500 light-years away towards the constellation of Sagittarius (the Archer). An active star-forming region of gas and dust about 15 light-years across, the nebula has recently spawned a cluster of massive, hot stars. The intense light and strong winds from these hulking infants have carved remarkable filigree structures in the gas and dust. When seen through a small telescope the nebula has a shape that reminds some observers of the final letter of the Greek alphabet, omega, while others see a swan with its distinctive long, curved neck. Yet other nicknames for this evocative cosmic landmark include the Horseshoe and the Lobster Nebula. Swiss astronomer Jean-Philippe Loys de Chéseaux discovered the nebula around 1745. The French comet hunter Charles Messier independently rediscovered it about twenty years later and included it as number 17 in his famous catalogue. In a small telescope, the Omega Nebula appears as an enigmatic ghostly bar of light set against the star fields of the Milky Way. Early observers were unsure whether this curiosity was really a cloud of gas or a remote cluster of stars too faint to be resolved. In 1866, William Huggins settled the debate when he confirmed the Omega Nebula to be a cloud of glowing gas, through the use of a new instrument, the astronomical spectrograph. In recent years, astronomers have discovered that the Omega Nebula is one of the youngest and most massive star-forming regions in the Milky Way. Active star-birth started a few million years ago and continues through today. The brightly shining gas shown in this picture is just a blister erupting from the side of a much larger dark cloud of molecular gas. The dust that is so prominent in this picture comes from the remains of massive hot stars that have ended their brief lives and ejected material back into space, as well as the cosmic detritus from which future suns form.

    Full Text Available Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA may modulate autonomic control of the heart because omega-3 PUFA is abundant in the brain and other nervous tissue as well as in cardiac tissue. This might partly explain why omega-3 PUFA offer some protection against sudden cardiac death (SCD. The autonomic nervous system is involved in the pathogenesis of SCD. Heart rate variability (HRV can be used as a non-invasive marker of cardiac autonomic control and a low HRV is a predictor for SCD and arrhythmic events. Studies on HRV and omega-3 PUFA have been performed in several populations such as patients with ischemic heart disease, patients with diabetes mellitus, patients with chronic renal failure, and in healthy subjects as well as in children.. The studies have demonstrated a positive association between cellular content of omega-3 PUFA and HRV and supplementation with omega-3 PUFA seems to increase HRV which could be a possible explanation for decreased risk of arrhythmic events and SCD sometimes observed after omega-3 PUFA supplementation. However, the results are not consistent and further research is needed

  15. The $\\Omega$ dependence of the velocity divergence distribution

    Bernardeau, F; Hivon, E; Bouchet, F R

    1996-01-01

    We present a series of results investigating the $\\Omega$ dependence of the distribution function of the large scale local cosmic velocity divergence. Analytical studies using perturbation theory techniques indicate that the shape of this distribution should be strongly dependent on $\\Omega$. This dependence is all the more interesting as it does not involve biases of the galaxy distribution with respect to the underlying density distribution, making it a potentially promising and useful basis for new and alternative methods to obtain bias-independent estimates of $\\Omega$. After a description of the $\\Omega$ dependent characteristics expected in the shape of the velocity divergence PDF, we study this distribution on the basis of a set of $N$-body simulations. To analyze the discretely sampled velocity field yielded by the latter, we apply a set of recently developed numerical tools, the ``Voronoi'' and ``Delaunay'' methods. These two methods were devised specifically for the purpose of investigating statisti...

    2007-01-01

    We present the first result of the Ital-FLAMES survey of red giant branch (RGB) stars in omega Cen. Radial velocities with a precision of ~0.5 km/s are presented for 650 members of omega Cen observed with FLAMES-Giraffe at the Very Large Telescope. We found that stars belonging to the metal -poor (RGB-MP), metal-intemediate (RGB-MInt) and metal-rich (RGB-a) sub -populations of Omega Cen are all compatible with having the same rotational pattern. Our results appear to contradict past findings by Norris et al., who could not detect any rotational signature for metal -rich stars. The slightly higher precision of the present measurements and the much larger sample size, especially for the metal-richer stars, appear as the most likely explanation for this discrepancy. The result presented here weakens the body of evidence in favour of a merger event in the past history of omega Cen.

  19. Topological classification of zero-dimensional $M_\\omega$-groups

    CERN Document Server

    Banakh, Taras

    2010-01-01

    A topological group $G$ is called an $M_\\omega$-group if it admits a countable cover $\\K$ by closed metrizable subspaces of $G$ such that a subset $U$ of $G$ is open in $G$ if and only if $U\\cap K$ is open in $K$ for every $K\\in\\K$. It is shown that any two non-metrizable uncountable separable zero-dimenisional $M_\\omega$-groups are homeomorphic. Together with Zelenyuk's classification of countable $k_\\omega$-groups this implies that the topology of a non-metrizable zero-dimensional $M_\\omega$-group $G$ is completely determined by its density and the compact scatteredness rank $r(G)$ which, by definition, is equal to the least upper bound of scatteredness indices of scattered compact subspaces of $G$.

The wave function of $\\Omega_{ccc}$ is solved from the Schr\\"odinger equation for the bound state of three charm quarks by using the hyperspherical method. The production cross section of $\\Omega_{ccc}$ per binary collision in a central Pb+Pb collision at $\\sqrt{s_{NN}}=2.76$ TeV reaches 9 nb, which is at least two orders of magnitude larger than that in a p+p collision at the same energy. Therefore, it is most probable to discover $\\Omega_{ccc}$ in heavy ion collisions at LHC, and the observation will be a clear signature of the quark-gluon plasma formation.

    The forcing relations between notions of distributional, Li-Yorke and {omega} chaos were studied by many authors. In this paper we summarize all known connections between these three different types of chaos and fulfill the results for general compact metric spaces by the construction of a selfmap on a compact perfect set which is {omega} chaotic, not distributionally chaotic and has zero topological entropy.

    The photoproduction of omega mesons off protons has been studied at the Bonn ELSA accelerator from threshold to E_gamma = 1700 MeV. Linearly polarized beams were produced via coherent bremsstrahlung. Large photon asymmtries in excess of 50% were obtained, whereas the pion asymmetries from omega \\to pi^0 gamma are close to zero. The asymmetries do characteristically depend on Theta_{cm} rather than |t| and indicate s-channel resonance formation on top of t-channel exchange processes.

  7. Ácidos grasos trans en la nutrición de niños con trastornos neurológicos

    Full Text Available Introducción: Los ácidos grasos trans (AGT están presentes en diversos alimentos, y son la única fuente de los mismos en humanos. Su presencia en concentraciones elevadas supone un factor de riesgo para la salud, por lo que se ven implicados en toda una serie de eventos cardiovasculares, inflamatorios, etc. Por ello, se han adoptado medidas para su disminución en la dieta. Como objetivo, se pretende determinarlos en el suero y en los fosfolípidos de las membranas, tanto en los niños sanos, como en los que padecen alteraciones neurológicas. Material y métodos: Se han analizado los AGT de 34 niños sanos y de 374 con diversas patologías neurológicas. Se han utilizado muestras de suero y de células sanguíneas, para lo que se lleva a cabo una extracción lipídica, con separación de los fosfolípidos de las membranas de las células, metilación de los ácidos grasos, separación mediante cromatografía de gases y, finalmente, cuantificación mediante detector de masas. Los datos han sido procesados estadísticamente. Resultados: La distribución de los AGT y su suma no tienen una distribución normal, por lo que se han efectuado pruebas no paramétricas. Los valores son mayores en suero que en los fosfolípidos de membrana y con una correlación débil, aunque significativa. El tC18:1 tiene una proporción doble en los niños con trastornos neurológicos, frente a los niños sanos, tanto en el suero como en los fosfolípidos de membrana, con diferencias significativas. Discusión: La mayor proporción de AGT en el grupo de niños con trastornos neurológicos está causada, sin duda, por un incremento en su ingesta, lo que se debe a una alimentación menos adecuada.

    Full Text Available Presentamos una serie de 50 pacientes de sexo femenino que no deseaban implantes y solicitan un aumento mamario de 1 a 1.5 tallas, a las que se les realizó únicamente transferencia de tejido graso autólogo (TTGA sin expansión previa, con seguimiento de 5 años revisadas entre septiembre del 2004 y enero del 2012; en 47 pacientes el procedimiento se hizo como tratamiento estético único y en 3 para corrección de asimetría. Las edades oscilaron entre los 18 y los 48 años. Los sitios donantes fueron por orden de importancia: región supraglútea, trocantérea e infraumbilical. La obtención del tejido se realizó con cánula de 3 mm y liposuctor a media atmósfera. La preparación de la grasa consistió únicamente en la decantación del exceso de solución de Klein y eliminación de las fibras elásticas. La colocación del tejido graso transferido se realizó con cánula de 3 mm espatulada, en depósitos largos, de 2 mm de ancho (churritos, en forma radiada y en diferentes niveles, intramuscular en pectoral mayor, sub y periglandular hasta obtener el volumen deseado. Se aplicaron de 250 a 400 cc de grasa en un solo tiempo quirúrgico y en 8 pacientes, en un segundo tiempo 3 meses después, fue necesario aplicar la cantidad requerida para corrección de asimetrías. Clínicamente apreciamos una reabsorción del 10 al 15% de la grasa infiltrada. Los resultados fueron satisfactorios y sostenidos en el tiempo de seguimiento, el pecho mantuvo su forma natural de gota por efecto de la gravedad o cuando las pacientes sufrieron ganancias o pérdida de peso de consideración.

  9. Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Skeletal Muscle Health.

    Skeletal muscle is a plastic tissue capable of adapting and mal-adapting to physical activity and diet. The response of skeletal muscle to adaptive stimuli, such as exercise, can be modified by the prior nutritional status of the muscle. The influence of nutrition on skeletal muscle has the potential to substantially impact physical function and whole body metabolism. Animal and cell based models show that omega-3 fatty acids, in particular those of marine origin, can influence skeletal muscle metabolism. Furthermore, recent human studies demonstrate that omega-3 fatty acids of marine origin can influence the exercise and nutritional response of skeletal muscle. These studies show that the prior omega-3 status influences not only the metabolic response of muscle to nutrition, but also the functional response to a period of exercise training. Omega-3 fatty acids of marine origin therefore have the potential to alter the trajectory of a number of human diseases including the physical decline associated with aging. We explore the potential molecular mechanisms by which omega-3 fatty acids may act in skeletal muscle, considering the n-3/n-6 ratio, inflammation and lipidomic remodelling as possible mechanisms of action. Finally, we suggest some avenues for further research to clarify how omega-3 fatty acids may be exerting their biological action in skeletal muscle.

    We report on a study of the decay B0bar -> D*+ omega pi- with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B-factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Based on a sample of 232 million BBbar decays, we measure the branching fraction BF(B0bar -> D*+ omega pi-) = (2.88 +/- 0.21(stat.) +/- 0.31(syst.)) \\times 10^{-3}. We study the invariant mass spectrum of the omega pi- system in this decay. This spectrum is in good agreement with expectations based on factorization and the measured spectrum in tau- -> omega pi- nu_tau. We also measure the polarization of the D*+ as a function of the omega pi- mass. In the mass region 1.1 to 1.9 GeV we measure the fraction of longitudinal polarization of the D*+ to be Gamma_L/Gamma = 0.654 +/- 0.042(stat.) +/- 0.016(syst.). This is in agreement with the expectations from heavy-quark effective theory and factorization assuming that the decay proceeds as B0bar -> D*+ rho(1450), rho(1450) -> omega pi-.

    The bolus intravenous injection of a novel medium-chain triglyceride:fish oil emulsion to normal subjects was recently reported to enrich within 60 min the phospholipid content of leucocytes and platelets in long-chain polyunsaturated omega3 fatty acids. The present study, conducted in second generation omega3-depleted rats, aimed at investigating whether such a procedure may also increase within 60 min the phospholipid content of omega3 fatty acids in cells located outwards the bloodstream, in this case liver cells, and whether this coincides with correction of the perturbation in the liver triglyceride fatty acid content and profile otherwise prevailing in these rats. This first report deals mainly with the fatty acid pattern of plasma lipids in male omega3-depleted rats that were non-injected or injected with either the omega3-rich emulsion or a control medium-chain triglyceride:olive oil emulsion. The results provide information on the fate of the exogenous lipids present in the lipid emulsions and injected intravenously 60 min before sacrifice. Moreover, in the uninjected omega3-depleted rats the comparison between individual plasma and liver measurements indicated positive correlations in the fatty acid profile of phospholipids and triglycerides.

Based on a sample of 232 million B{bar B} decays, we measure the branching fraction {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +}{omega}{pi}{sup -}) = (2.88 {+-} 0.21(stat.) {+-} 0.31(syst.)) x 10{sup -3}. We study the invariant mass spectrum of the {omega}{pi}{sup -} system in this decay. This spectrum is in good agreement with expectations based on factorization and the measured spectrum in {tau}{sup -} {yields} {omega}{pi}{sup -} {nu}{sub {tau}}. We also measure the polarization of the D*{sup +} as a function of the {omega}{pi}{sup -} mass. In the mass region 1.1 to 1.9 GeV we measure the fraction of longitudinal polarization of the D*{sup +} to be {Lambda}{sub L}/{Lambda} = 0.654 {+-} 0.042(stat.) {+-} 0.016(syst.). This is in agreement with the expectations from heavy-quark effective theory and factorization assuming that the decay proceeds as {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +}{rho}(1450), {rho}(1450) {yields} {omega}{pi}{sup -}.

    In a search for $\\omega$ mesic states, the production of $\\omega$-mesons in coincidence with forward going protons has been studied in photon induced reactions on $^{12}$C for incident photon energies of 1250 - 3100 MeV. The $\\pi^0 \\gamma$ pairs from decays of bound or quasi-free $\\omega$-mesons have been measured with the CBELSA/TAPS detector system in coincidence with protons registered in the MiniTAPS forward array. Structures in the total energy distribution of the $\\pi^0 \\gamma$ pairs, which would indicate the population and decay of bound $\\omega~^{11}$B states, are not observed. The $\\pi^0 \\gamma$ cross section of 0.3 nb/MeV/sr observed in the bound state energy regime between -100 and 0 MeV may be accounted for by yield leaking into the bound state regime because of the large in-medium width of the $\\omega$-meson. A comparison of the measured total energy distribution with calculations suggests the real part $V_0$ of the $\\omega~^{11}$B potential to be small and only weakly attractive with $V_0(\\rho=\\...

    Using shape invariance symmetries with respect to two different parameters n and m, we derive the general forms of the partner Hamiltonians for the superpotentials Atanh{omega}y+B/A and -Acot{omega}{theta}+Bcsc{omega}{theta}, respectively. For the first model in a special case and the second model in the general case, the parameters m and n play the role of the quantization numbers for the spectrum and quantum states as finite and infinite ones, respectively. We also get a type of the shape invariance symmetry which is realized by the operators shifting only m and only n, respectively, for two models. Furthermore, for the models, other shape invariance symmetries based on the operators shifting the indices n and m of quantum states simultaneously and inversely as well as simultaneously and agreeably are derived.

    We present a dispersive analysis of the three-pion decays of the lightest isoscalar vector mesons. The framework allows for a consistent implementation of final-state interactions among all three pions, with the results being solely dependent on the pion-pion P-wave scattering phase shift. We compare our results with the very precise KLOE measurement of phi --> 3pi. The omega/phi --> 3pi partial-wave amplitude serves as input to a dispersive analysis of the omega/phi --> pi0 gamma* transition form factor. We compare to data for omega --> pi0 mu+ mu- by the NA60 collaboration and motivate an experimental measurement of the OZI forbidden phi --> pi0 l+ l- decays in order to understand the strong deviations in the omega channel.

    Full Text Available The beneficial roles of omega-3 fatty acids (ω3-FAs on obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other metabolic diseases are well known. Most of these effects can be explained by their anti-inflammatory effects, triggered through their receptor, G protein-coupled receptor 120 (GPR120 activation. Although the whole mechanism of action is not fully described yet, it has been shown that stimulation of ω3-FA to GPR120 is followed by receptor phosphorylation. This makes GPR120 be capable of interacting to beta-arrestin-2, which in turn results in association, of beta-arrestin-2 to TAB1. This stealing of an important partaker of the inflammatory cascade, leads to interruption of the pathway, resulting in reduced inflammation. Besides this regulation of the anti-inflammatory response, GPR120 signaling also has been shown to regulate glucose homeostasis, adiposity, gastrointestinal peptide secretion, and taste preference. In this review we summarize the current knowledge about the interaction of ω3-FAs with GPR120 and the consequent opportunities for the application of ω3-FAs and possible GPR120 targets.

    The Dante is a 15 channel filtered diode array which is installed on the OMEGA laser facility at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics, University of Rochester. The system yields the spectrally and temporally resolved radiation flux from 50 eV to 10 keV from various targets (i.e., Hohlraum, gas pipes, etc.). The absolute flux is determined from the radiometric calibration of the x-ray diodes, filters, and mirrors and an unfold algorithm applied to the recorded voltages from each channel. The unfold algorithm assumes an emitting source that is spatially uniform and has a constant area as a function of photon energy. The emitting x-ray source is usually considered to be the laser entrance hole (LEH) of a given diameter for Hohlraum type targets or the effective wall area of high conversion efficiency K-shell type targets. This assumption can be problematic for several reasons. High intensity regions or "hot spots" in the x-ray are observed where the drive laser beams strike the target. The "hot spots" create non-uniform emission seen by the Dante. Additionally, thinned walled (50 μm) low-Z targets (C22H10N2O5) have an energy dependent source size since the target's walls will be fully opaque for low energies (E < 2-3 keV) yet fully transmissive at higher energies. Determining accurate yields can be challenging for these types of targets. Discussion and some analysis will be presented.

    The Dante is an 18 channel x-ray filtered diode array which records the spectrally and temporally resolved radiation flux from various targets (e.g., hohlraums, etc.) at x-ray energies between 50 eV and 10 keV. It is a main diagnostic installed on the OMEGA laser facility at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics, University of Rochester. The absolute flux is determined from the photometric calibration of the x-ray diodes, filters and mirrors, and an unfold algorithm. Understanding the errors on this absolute measurement is critical for understanding hohlraum energetic physics. We present a new method for quantifying the uncertainties on the determined flux using a Monte Carlo parameter variation technique. This technique combines the uncertainties in both the unfold algorithm and the error from the absolute calibration of each channel into a one sigma Gaussian error function. One thousand test voltage sets are created using these error functions and processed by the unfold algorithm to produce individual spectra and fluxes. Statistical methods are applied to the resultant set of fluxes to estimate error bars on the measurements.

    The mechanical response of reinforced composite structures under impact loads is particularly challenging owing to the rising of multiple and simultaneous failure phenomena. Indeed, low velocity impacts may produce intra-laminar damages, like fibre breakage and matrix cracking, and inter-laminar damages, such as delaminations and skin-stringer debonding. As already remarked, these failure phenomena often take place simultaneously, leading to a significant reduction in strength and stability of the composite components. In this paper, the behaviour of stiffened composite panels, with omega shaped stringers, under low velocity impacts is numerically investigated by means of non-linear explicit FEM analyses. Different impact energy levels are considered and correlation with experimental data is provided, in terms of impact force, displacement and energy. A sensitivity analysis has been performed to investigate the influence of numerical models' approximations on the accuracy of the obtained numerical results. Models with an increasing level of damage simulation details have been adopted to study the effects of combined and separated intra-laminar and inter-laminar failures providing an interesting insight on the modelling requirements for an accurate simulation of the investigated phenomena.

    Recent cosmic microwave background measurements combined with recent supernovae limits and other observational data have ambushed Omega_lambda and Omega_m. These cosmological culprits are trapped in a small pocket of parameter space: Omega_lambda = 0.62 +/- 0.16 and Omega_m = 0.24 +/- 0.10. If this is correct then an unknown 2/3 of the Universe has been identified.

    Full Text Available Objectives: Considering the increasing prevalence of depression in modern societies and the positive effects of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on depression, this study aims to investigate the omega-3 and omega-6 content of various foodstuffs, prescribed or prohibited by Iranian Traditional Medicine (ITM. Materials and Methods: Firstly, reliable sources of Iranian Traditional Medicine were reviewed in order to identify the prescribed and prohibited foodstuffs for depressed patients. Afterwards, according to the online database of United States Department of Agriculture (URL: http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/search/list, the ratio of linoleic acid to alpha linolenic acid (as representatives of omega-6 and omega-3, respectively was identified in each foodstuff. Finally, the ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 were compared between seven food groups of vegetables, fruits, dry goods, high protein products, dairies, breads, and spices. Results: Based on the resources of Iranian Traditional Medicine, the following foods are prescribed for depressed patients: basil, coriander, spinach, lettuce, squash, peppermint, dill, chicory, celery, beet, quince, cucumber, watermelon, grape, peach, pomegranate, banana, apple, currant, pistachio, dried fig, almond, egg, chicken, lamb, trout, milk, bread without bran,saffron, oregano, and coriander seeds. On the other hand, cabbage, eggplant, onion, garlic, broad beans, lentils, beef, whole wheat bread, and mustard are prohibited. It should be noted that omega-3 content in some prescribed foods is more than that of the prohibited ones. Conclusion: The present study showed that mint, basil, spinach, lettuce, squash, lamb, saffron, oregano, cucumber, pistachio, milk, and also wild trout can be considered as medicinal foods for depressed patients.

    The charge of lead-acid batteries (LAB), as in any other type of batteries, consists of replacing the energy consumed during the discharge. Nevertheless, as no physical or chemical process is good enough to totality recharge a battery, it is necessary to supply to it more than the 100% of the energy demanded during its discharge. A critical factor to make a suitable load control of the batteries is to determine its own state of load. That is to say, to have an efficient load control, it is necessary to count on means that allow to accurately determining the residual capacity of the battery to deliver load. This one is the one of the aspects of greater interest in the research centers around world. For this reason, in this work it was pretended to develop a calculation algorithm of the state of load of batteries based on a fuzzy-neural network that could calculate the state of load without using the battery current as an input. This is because one of the main problems for the designers of battery load controllers is the correct supervision of the current that circulates around the system in all the rank of operation of the same one because the sensors do not have a linear behavior. [Spanish] La recarga de baterias plomo-acido (BPA), como cualquier otro tipo de baterias, consiste en reponer la energia consumida durante la descarga. Sin embargo, como ningun proceso fisico o quimico es lo bastante eficiente para recargar a totalidad una bateria, es necesario suministrarle mas del 100% de la energia demandada durante su descarga. Un factor critico para realizar un adecuado control de carga de las baterias, es determinar su propio estado de carga. Es decir, para tener un control de carga eficiente, es necesario contar con un medio que permita determinar con precision la capacidad remanente de la bateria para entregar carga. Este es uno de los aspectos de mayor interes en los centros de investigacion alrededor el mundo. Por tal razon, en este trabajo se propuso

    Neutralizing an acidic fluid consists of adding a sodium hydroxide solution to neutralize the H group of acids, therefore increasing the pH. The injection of sodium hydroxide has to be continuous and at a proper depth inside the well to protect against the corrosion of casing and surface equipment. Neutralization is a common practice used in geothermal fields, such as at The Geysers in the US and Miravalles in Costa Rica-places where aggressive fluids cause problems for extracting and using geothermal fluids commercially. A zone surrounding wells H-4, H-16 and H-29 in the northern section of the Los Humeros, Pue., geothermal field, known as the Colapso Central, has shown evidence of aggressively acidic fluids. Several wells drilled in the area had to be repaired, thus plugging and isolating the deepest production zones. Well H-43 was drilled two years ago in the northern zone of the field, and even though it is not located in the aggressive-fluid zone, the well presents mineralogical features possibly indicating the presence of acidic fluids. Therefore, before producing this well it has been proposed we install a neutralization system with general characteristics presented in this paper. The system will prevent corrosion that up to now has prevented exploitation of the deep portion of Colapso Central, helping to develop the field in a more profitable way.

    2011-01-01

    It is well known that \\omega-limit sets are internally chain transitive and have weak incompressibility; the converse is not generally true, in either case. However, it has been shown that a set is weakly incompressible if and only if it is an abstract \\omega-limit set, and separately that in shifts of finite type, a set is internally chain transitive if and only if it is a (regular) \\omega-limit set. In this paper we generalise these and other results, proving that the characterization for shifts of finite type holds in a variety of topologically hyperbolic systems (defined in terms of expansive and shadowing properties), and also show that the notions of internal chain transitivity and weak incompressibility coincide in compact metric spaces.

We present evidence for the decay mode X(3872) --> J/{psi}{omega}, with product branching fractions B(B{sup +} --> X(3872)K{sup +}) x B(X(3872) --> J/{psi}{omega}) = [0.6 {+-} 0.2(stat) {+-} 0.1(syst)] x 10{sup -5}, and B(B{sup 0} --> X(3872)K{sup 0}) x B(X(3872) --> J/{psi}{omega}) = [0.6 {+-} 0.3(stat) {+-} 0.1(syst)] x 10{sup -5}. A detailed study of the {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0} mass distribution from X(3872) decay favors a negative-parity assignment.

  11. Pathophysiological role of omega pore current in channelopathies

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Karin eJurkat-Rott

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available In voltage-gated cation channels, a recurrent pattern for mutations is the neutralization of positively charged residues in the voltage-sensing S4 transmembrane segments. These mutations cause dominant ion channelopathies affecting many tissues such as brain, heart, and skeletal muscle. Recent studies suggest that the pathogenesis of associated phenotypes is not limited to alterations in the gating of the ion-conducting alpha pore. Instead, aberrant so-called omega currents facilitated by the movement of the S4 segments during activation and during recovery are thought to cause symptoms. Surprisingly, these omega currents display uni- or bi-directionality and conduct cations with varying ion selectivity. Additionally, the voltage-sensitivity enables the channels to conduct different omega currents in the various voltage ranges. This review gives an overview of voltage sensor channelopathies in general and focuses on pathogenesis of skeletal muscle S4 disorders for which current knowledge is most advanced.

    Hellerman, Simeon; Reffert, Susanne

    2012-01-01

    We present a string theory construction of Omega-deformed four-dimensional gauge theories with generic values of \\epsilon_1 and \\epsilon_2. Our solution gives an explicit description of the geometry in the core of Nekrasov and Witten's realization of the instanton partition function, far from the asymptotic region of their background. This construction lifts naturally to M-theory and corresponds to an M5-brane wrapped on a Riemann surface with a selfdual flux. Via a 9-11 flip, we finally reinterpret the Omega deformation in terms of non-commutative geometry. Our solution generates all modified couplings of the \\Omega-deformed gauge theory, and also yields a geometric origin for the quantum spectral curve of the associated quantum integrable system.

    OMEGA (Observatoire pour la Mineralogie, l'Eau, le Glace e l'Activité) is a visible and near infrared mapping spectrometer, operating in the spectral range (0.35 - 5.1 μm). Combining imagery and spectrometry, OMEGA is designed to provide the mineralogical and molecular composition of the surface and atmosphere of Mars through the spectral analysis of the diffused solar light and surface thermal emission. OMEGA will provide a global coverage at medium resolution (2 to 5 km) of the entire surface of Mars from altitudes 1500 to 4000 km, and high resolution (Fisica dello Spazio Interplanetario, Rome, Italy) and IKI (Institute for Space Research, Moscow, Russia). In this paper we present the first results after few months from starting of its observations.

    An increasing body of evidence supports the health beneficial effects of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Therefore, incorporation of marine oils into foods has also gained an increasing interest. However, the highly unsaturated lipids present in marine oils are prone to lipid oxidation....... The properties of the emulsifier used and the structure at the interface are therefore expected to be of great importance for oxidation in emulsions. This presentation will include results from mainly three different studies of lipid oxidation in omega-3 emulsions prepared with milk proteins and protein...

    We investigate theoretically whether it is feasible to detect $\\eta$- and $^{40}$Ca, $^{90}$Zr and $^{208}$Pb, we also investigate $^6$He, $^{11}$B and $^{26}$Mg, which are the final nuclei in the proposed experiment involving the (d,$^3$He) reaction at GSI. Potentials for the $\\eta$ and $\\omega$ mesons in these nuclei are calculated in local density approximation, embedding the mesons in the nucleus described by solving the mean-field equations of motion in the QMC model. Our results suggest that one should expect to find $\\eta$- and $\\omega$-nucleus bound states in all these nuclei.

  19. Metal rich stars in omega Cen: preliminary FLAMES GTO results

    Pancino, E

    2004-01-01

    I present preliminary results for a sample of ~700 red giants in omega Cen, observed during the Ital-FLAMES Consortium GTO time in May 2003, for the Bologna Project on omega Cen. Preliminary Fe and Ca abundances confirm previous results: while the metal-poor and intermediate populations show a normal halo alpha-enhancement of [alpha/Fe]=$+0.3, the most metal-rich stars show a significantly lower [alpha/Fe]=+0.1. If the metal-rich stars have evolved within the cluster in a process of self-enrichment, the only way to lower their alpha-enhancement would be SNe type Ia intervention.

    Omega Centauri, the Milky Way's most massive and enigmatic old stellar cluster, offers a treasure trove of astronomical discovery and controversy. Is the cluster a globular or a dwarf galaxy remnant? Does it host a massive central black hole? What are the origins and dynamical histories of the cluster's multiple stellar populations? I will discuss our multiwavelength imaging and spectroscopic campaigns, and in particular a new Chandra X-ray flux limit on the cluster's purported IMBH. These observations also probe Omega Cen's binary populations and shed light on the cluster's dynamical history.

    Full Text Available We give the results obtained for the determination of trans fatty acids in subcutaneous and intramuscular fats from different veal carcasses, using gas chromatography. FA composition differs clearly between both tissues, showing mean values of 58.7% SFA, 39.1% MUFA and 2.7% PUFA in the adipose tissue, and of 44.7% SFA, 46.1% MUFA and 9.4% PUFA in the muscle. Trans fatty acid values obtained in muscle and adipose tissue show statistically significant differences (mean values of 7% total trans fatty acids in intramuscular fat and 10.5% in adipose tissue fat. Besides, we observed a clearly different distribution for C 16: 1t, that didn't show these differences, while C 18: 1t showed a similar distribution than total trans fatty acids. Related to the factors that could determine the trans fatty acid contents in veal carcasses, we found that the race showed more differences between groups than the origin of the animal and their commercial category. On the other hand, correlations we found between trans fatty acids and the total of saturated, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids showed an opposite sign according to the type of tissue (muscular or adipose. Thus, an increase in the trans fatty acid content was associated with a parallel increase of saturated and decrease in polyunsaturated fatty acid contents in the intramuscular fat. On the contrary, an increase of trans fatty acid content in adipose fat was correlated to a decrease of saturated and an increase of mono and polyunsaturated fatty acid contents.

  2. An omega-Power of a Finitary Language Which is a Borel Set of Infinite Rank

    Finkel, Olivier

    2008-01-01

    Omega-powers of finitary languages are omega languages in the form V^omega, where V is a finitary language over a finite alphabet X. Since the set of infinite words over X can be equipped with the usual Cantor topology, the question of the topological complexity of omega-powers naturally arises and has been raised by Niwinski, by Simonnet, and by Staiger. It has been recently proved that for each integer n > 0, there exist some omega-powers of context free languages which are Pi^0_n-complete Borel sets, and that there exists a context free language L such that L^omega is analytic but not Borel. But the question was still open whether there exists a finitary language V such that V^omega is a Borel set of infinite rank. We answer this question in this paper, giving an example of a finitary language whose omega-power is Borel of infinite rank.

    The $\\Omega$ baryons with $J^P=3/2^\\pm, 1/2^\\pm$ are studied on the lattice in the quenched approximation. Their mass levels are ordered as $M_{3/2^+}Omega$ states observed in experiments, respectively. We calculate the Bethe-Salpeter amplitudes of $\\Omega(3/2^+)$ and $\\Omega(1/2^+)$ and find there is a radial node for the $\\Omega(1/2^+)$ Bethe-Salpeter amplitude, which may imply that $\\Omega(1/2^+)$ is an orbital excitation of $\\Omega$ baryons as a member of the $(D,L_N^P)=(70,0_2^+)$ supermultiplet in the $SU(6)\\bigotimes O(3)$ quark model description. Our results are helpful for identifying the quantum number of experimentally observed $\\Omega$ states.

    Full Text Available Una necesidad actual de la industria de extracción y refinación de aceite vegetal es la reducción y/o explotación de sus subproductos. Uno de estos, conocido como Ácidos Grasos Destilados de Aceite de Soya (AGDAS, resulta potencialmente valioso para las industrias alimentaria, farmacéutica y cosmética por la presencia de compuestos con actividad biológica favorable, como los fitoesteroles y el escualeno, los primeros como agentes hipocolesterolemiantes y el escualeno como emoliente y humectante. En este trabajo, mediante cromatografía de gases se determinó el contenido de escualeno y fitoesteroles libres y esterificados para evaluar la viabilidad de aprovechamiento de AGDAS como fuente de dichos compuestos y establecer si la procedencia del grano de soya (americano o nacional, la condición de cultivo (Sequía o Normal, años 2011 y 2012 respectivamente y el grado de calidad del aceite (Genérico o Premium son factores determinantes en el contenido de dichos compuestos en el subproducto. En conclusión AGDAS representa una fuente viable de fitoesteroles totales con 14.92% p/p, no así de escualeno con 1.75% p/p. La concentración de escualeno está influenciada por la procedencia del grano y la condición de cultivo, mientras que la de fitoesteroles esterificados por el grado de calidad y condición de cultivo. Ninguno de los factores influyó en el contenido de fitoesteroles totales. Esto permite establecer que la composición del subproducto AGDAS no es constante y se justifican protocolos como el de este estudio para su caracterización con fines de aprovechamiento.

    Full Text Available El hígado graso como entidad clínica ha concitado un notable interés toda vez que ha pasado a ser de un hallazgo ultrasonográfico de poca trascendencia a un importante problema de salud por su frecuencia, pronóstico e insuficiencia de los tratamientos farmacológicos propuestos. La obesidad, la resistencia a la insulina y la dislipoproteinemia son los factores de riesgo más importantes, aunque en ocasiones resulta difícil identificar otros posibles factores de riesgo. Se distinguen dos etapas: Primer "hit" (golpe (cuando la infiltración grasa no ha producido aún cambios estructurales y Segundo hit, cuando aparecen daños tisulares. Aunque el diagnóstico de certeza es sin duda el examen histológico, el ultrasonido y otros métodos no invasivos son los más utilizados junto a determinaciones de laboratorio clínico. El tratamiento más difundido es la reducción del peso corporal a partir de la dieta y el ejercicio físico. También se han ensayado varios medicamentos, pero su efectividad resulta dudosa o insuficiente, lo cual pudiera explicarse porque el efecto del medicamento no esté relacionado con los fenómenos metabólicos que estén teniendo lugar en el momento evolutivo de la enfermedad, lo cual resulta difícil de precisar a no ser por métodos invasivos. Posiblemente se necesiten combinaciones medicamentosas o medicamentos de mayor espectro para obtener mejores resultados.

    Full Text Available El tratamiento quirúrgico para la corrección de las orejas prominentes o valgas se basa en crear una distancia de entre 17-21 mm entre el hélix y la mastoides, así como recrear unos pliegues auriculares anteriores bien definidos. Desde finales de 1800 hasta la actualidad se han descrito muchas técnicas para corregir las orejas despegadas, prominentes o valgas, cada una de ellas con sus propias características. En el presente trabajo describimos una técnica para estabilizar el resultado quirúrgico cuando se corrige esta entidad y evitar su recidiva. Se trata de un procedimiento de fijación mastoidea de la oreja mediante un colgajo dermo-graso-pericóndrico de sencillo diseño, útil, seguro y fácilmente reproducible. Hemos empleado esta técnica durante más de 15 años y creemos que ha resistido la prueba del tiempo.The treatment for the correction of prominent or valgus ears, is to create a normal distance (17-21 mm between the mastoid and the helix and a normal appearance of the anterior auricular folds. From late 1800 to the present, many surgical techniques for correcting prominent or valgus ears have been described, each one with its own characteristics. We describe a technique to stabilize the result and prevent recurrence. This technique stabilizes the correction of the ear fixing it to the mastoid fascia using a dermalfat-perichondrium flap of simple design, useful, safe and easily reproducible. We have used it over 15 years, and that makes us believe that has stood the test of time.

    A theoretical investigation on the phase control of optical transient four-wave mixing interactions in two-level systems driven by two intense temporal coherent femtosecond laser pulses of central angular frequencies $\\omega$ and $3\\omega$ is reported. By solving the full Maxwell-Bloch equations beyond the slowly-varying envelope and rotating-wave approximations in the time domain, the parametric nonlinear coupling to the optical field at frequency $5\\omega$ is found to depend critically on the initial relative phase $\\phi$ of the two propagating pulses; the coupling is enhanced when the pulses interfere constructively in the center ($\\phi=0$), while it is nearly suppressed when they are out of phase ($\\phi=\\pi$).

  11. Preventive effects of omega-3 and omega-6 Fatty acids on peroxide mediated oxidative stress responses in primary human trabecular meshwork cells.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Theofilos Tourtas

    Full Text Available Pathologic processes in glaucoma include increased apoptosis, accumulation of extracellular material in the trabecular meshwork and optic nerve, condensations of the cytoskeleton and precocious cellular senescence. Oxidative stress was shown to generate these alterations in primary ocular cells. Fatty acids omega-3 and -6 are alleged to constitute a prophylaxis against these deleterious effects. Here, we tested actual preventive effects omega-3 and -6 against peroxide induced stress responses in primary human trabecular meshwork cells. Changes of mitochondrial activity, proliferation, heat shock proteins, extracellular matrix components, and inflammatory markers were evaluated. Alterations of the cytoskeleton were evaluated by phalloidin labeling. Here we report a repressive effect of omega-6 on metabolic activity and proliferation, which was not detected for omega-3. Both agents were able to prevent the anti-proliferative effect of H₂O₂, but only omega-3 prevented metabolic repression. Expression of heat shock protein 27 was unaltered by both fatty acids, whereas heat shock protein 90 was significantly induced by both. Omega-6 increased fibronectin and connective tissue growth factor synthesis, as well as the amount of secreted fibronectin. Omega-3, instead, induced plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 synthesis. H₂O₂ further increased fibronectin production in omega-6 supplemented cells, which was not the case in omega-3 treated cells. H₂O₂ stimulation of plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 and connective tissue growth factor was repressed by both fatty acids. Both fatty acids appeared to abolish H₂O₂ mediated stimulation of nuclear factor κB and IL-6, but not IL-1α and IL-8. H₂O₂ induced formation of cross-linked actin networks and stress fibers, which was reduced by preemptive application of omega-3. Omega-6, in contrast, had no protective effect on that, and even seemed to promote condensation. Based on the observed side

    Greater amounts of physical activity (PA) and omega-3 fatty acids have both been independently associated with better cognitive performance. Because of the overlapping biological effects of omega-3 fatty acids and PA, fatty acid intake may modify the effects of PA on neurocognitive function. The present study tested this hypothesis by examining whether the ratio of serum omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid levels would moderate the association between PA and executive and memory functions in 344 pa...

  2. MECANISMOS MOLECULARES POR LOS CUALES LOS ÁCIDOS GRASOS PODRÍAN INFLUIR EN LA CAPTACIÓN DE GLUCOSA Molecular mechanisms by which free fatty acids might interfere with periferic insuline action

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2005-04-01

    Full Text Available Esta revisión tiene el propósito de actualizar el probable mecanismo molecular que ejercen los ácidos grasos en las células que captan glucosa, bajo el estimulo de la insulina y su posible implicación en la diabetes mellitus tipo 2 en la que suelen asociarse resistencia a la insulina, obesidad y síndrome metabólico. Entre los mecanismos moleculares por los cuales un aumento de los ácidos grasos libres podría producir resistencia a la insulina, se encuentra la disminución de los niveles de xilulosa 5-fosfato que bloquea la glucólisis por inhibición de la fosfofructocinasa, ello conduce a un aumento de los productos finales en la vía de las hexosaminas y a la activación de la proteincinasa C, un conocido activador de inhibidor de la cinasa Kappa Beta que inhibe la fosforilación del receptor del sustrato de insulina en tirosina, bloqueando los transportadores de glucosa. Existen investigaciones que sugieren que los ácidos grasos libres están implicados en la insulino-resistencia pero el mecanismo bioquímico no esta dilucidado del todo, pues no hay un mecanismo integral que los relacione o interconecte para concluir determinantemente cómo los altos niveles de ácidos grasos libres inducen la resistencia a la insulina.Previous research suggests that free fatty acids are implicated in insulin resistance, but the molecular mechanism for it isn't completely elucidated, given the lack of an integrated hypothesis relating all of the proposed mechanisms. At the present time, the causes of insulin resistance, obesity and metabolic syndrome, a common feature in patients with diabetes mellitus are matter of intense study. Among several molecular mechanisms by which the increase in free fatty acids could raise insulin resistance is decrease in xylulose-5-phosphate that leads to an inhibition of phosphofructokinase-2, and consequently to a blockade in glycol sis with a subsequent increase in the final products of the hexosamine pathway and

    The \\HOmega\\ diagram is resurrected to dramatically illustrate the nature of the key problems in physical cosmology today and the role that nuclear physics plays in many of them. In particular it is noted that the constraints on \\OmegaB\\ from big bang nucleosynthesis do not overlap with the constraints on \\OmegaVis\\ nor have significant overlap with the lower bound on \\Omega from cluster studies. The former implies that the bulk of the baryons are dark and the later is the principle argument for non-baryonic dark matter. A comparison with hot x-ray emitting gas in clusters is also made.

  4. Omega-3 fatty acids: a novel resort against gastrointestinal injury.

    2014-10-01

    The integrity of gastric barrier derives from the balance between defending and damaging factors. In particular, prostaglandins play a relevant role in the maintenance of gastric homeostasis and prevention of peptic disease, at different levels. Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly eicosapentanoic acid, are the precursors of the third series of prostaglandins (with anti-inflammatory properties), also reducing the formation of the second series of prostaglandins (pro-inflammatory ones). Such a pathophysiological rationale brought to the experimental application, both in animal models and, more recently, in humans, of omega-3 fatty acids against gastrointestinal damage. Omega-3 fatty acids have shown interesting results in preventing different types of gastric damage in mouse models. A large retrospective case-control study on patients taking both anti-thrombotic therapy and eicosapentanoic acid showed (although only at unadjusted analysis) an inverse correlation between consumption of eicosapentanoic acid and gastrointestinal injury. Prospective, well-designed, comparative studies are warranted to clarify if omega-3 fatty acids may represent, or not, a novel resort against gastrointestinal injury.

  5. Prevention of Sports Injuries by Marine Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bryhn, Morten

    2015-01-01

    Sport injuries are common and costly for the professional athlete, the "weekend warrior," and the community. Acute injuries are treated according to current guidelines with the aim of bringing the athlete back into the arena. These guidelines have not taken into account new scientific results of the inflammatory process following a trauma. The 4 hallmarks of inflammation, namely, pain, swelling, redness, and heat, are results of an adequate inflammatory response with the aim of bringing the affected tissue back to restitution (Latin: restitutio ad integrum). Cooling of the affected limb and anti-inflammatory drugs are widely used but may deter healing. The healing process is governed by fatty acids of the omega-3 and omega-6 series. In order to facilitate healing, these fatty acids have to be present in significant amounts in the affected tissues before the trauma occurs. This is particularly relevant for marine omega-3 fatty acids, which are often running low due to insignificant intake of seafood, common in individuals practicing sports. High-energy sports often lead to head and brain trauma. Continuous head traumata may even result in later mental defects. Saturation of brain cells with omega-3 fatty acids, in particular docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), may facilitate healing after brain trauma, thereby counteracting negative long-term results. The present understanding of a normal inflammatory process leading to restitution will be discussed along with data from recent scientific trials.

  6. Omega-3 fatty acids for breast cancer prevention and survivorship.

    2015-05-04

    Women with evidence of high intake ratios of the marine omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) relative to the omega-6 arachidonic acid have been found to have a reduced risk of breast cancer compared with those with low ratios in some but not all case-control and cohort studies. If increasing EPA and DHA relative to arachidonic acid is effective in reducing breast cancer risk, likely mechanisms include reduction in proinflammatory lipid derivatives, inhibition of nuclear factor-κB-induced cytokine production, and decreased growth factor receptor signaling as a result of alteration in membrane lipid rafts. Primary prevention trials with either risk biomarkers or cancer incidence as endpoints are underway but final results of these trials are currently unavailable. EPA and DHA supplementation is also being explored in an effort to help prevent or alleviate common problems after a breast cancer diagnosis, including cardiac and cognitive dysfunction and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. The insulin-sensitizing and anabolic properties of EPA and DHA also suggest supplementation studies to determine whether these omega-3 fatty acids might reduce chemotherapy-associated loss of muscle mass and weight gain. We will briefly review relevant omega-3 fatty acid metabolism, and early investigations in breast cancer prevention and survivorship.

    For some decades, an increase in propagation of coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes, tumors and mental disorders has been observed. Consequently, new and effective methods of treatment of these diseases using drugs and diet supplements have been developed. A promising solution is the use of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the treatment of some diseases. These compounds have broad application in prevention of many diseases and are used to support standard therapies. Their activity is connected with participation in metabolic processes regulating biochemical transformations in cells and tissues. Omega-3 fatty acids regulate production of cytokines, increased levels of which may contribute to occurrence of chronic inflammatory diseases, autoaggression of the immunological system, arteriosclerosis or tumor development. These substances exert a beneficial effect on the blood system by improvement of blood circulation and nerve signal transmission. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of irregular heartbeat, stabilize arterial pressure, and restore balance in cholesterol metabolism disorders. They also play a key role in maintaining physical and mental efficiency; thus administration of these compounds for young children is of great importance. Nevertheless, administration of omega-3 fatty acids in the diet seems to be essential. The purpose of this study is to present the structure and sources of omega-3 and - 6 fatty acids and discuss the problems concerning therapeutic use of these compounds in various disorders.

  10. Oxidation of Marine Omega-3 Supplements and Human Health

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Marine omega-3 rich oils are used by more than a third of American adults for a wide range of purported benefits including prevention of cardiovascular disease. These oils are highly prone to oxidation to lipid peroxides and other secondary oxidation products. Oxidized oils may have altered biological activity making them ineffective or harmful, though there is also evidence that some beneficial effects of marine oils could be mediated through lipid peroxides. To date, human clinical trials have not reported the oxidative status of the trial oil. This makes it impossible to understand the importance of oxidation to efficacy or harm. However, animal studies show that oxidized lipid products can cause harm. Oxidation of trial oils may be responsible for the conflicting omega-3 trial literature, including the prevention of cardiovascular disease. The oxidative state of an oil can be simply determined by the peroxide value and anisidine value assays. We recommend that all clinical trials investigating omega-3 harms or benefits report the results of these assays; this will enable better understanding of the benefits and harms of omega-3 and the clinical importance of oxidized supplements.

  12. Golden Jubilee photos: The Alpha and the OMEGA

    CERN Multimedia

    2004-01-01

    In 1972, the OMEGA spectrometer was commissioned in the West Area and more than a million collisions were recorded that very first year. OMEGA was equipped with spark chambers - replaced at the end of the 1970s by electronic detectors - and a 15 000-tonne superconducting magnet. On this photo we can see the magnet's lower coil and, in the foreground, the support plate for the upper coil. No fewer than 48 experiments made use of this device, exploiting beams of various particles at various energies - from the PS at the beginning, and then from the highest energy beams of the SPS. OMEGA thus played a key role in many physics results and activities, notably the production of the J/psi particle, the study of particles carrying charm or beauty quarks, the study of «gluonia», and the CERN heavy ion programme. The OMEGA experiments ceased in 1996 when the facilities in the West Hall were shut down in preparation for the construction of the LHC.

    Cicero, Arrigo F G; Morbini, Martino; Borghi, Claudio

    2015-02-01

    The therapeutic value of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), mainly (but not only) found in fish oils, eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids (EPA and DHA, respectively), has been extensively studied in a wide variety of disease conditions, predominantly in cardiovascular disease. However, the significant difference in efficacy observed in various conditions with different dosages seems to be at least partly related to the large discrepancy in quality of the product and to the bioavailability of the omega-3 PUFA. The research of new sources (e.g., from arctic Krill oil) and pharmaceutical forms of omega-3 PUFA (e.g., omega-3 carboxylic acids) is needed in order to detect the one with the best bioavailability and efficacy, and with a parallel reduction in the production costs. There is also the need to understand if long-term PUFA supplementation could increase the efficacy of the already-available evidence-based therapies for cardiovascular disease prevention and for the management of the diseases where the use of PUFA could have a possible improving effect.

    Full Text Available Background and aims: Insulin resistance (IR is a common pathogenic factor of several diseases: diabetes mellitus, the metabolic syndrome, arterial hypertension, atherosclerosis, dyslipidemia, etc. There are many therapeutic factors involved in decreasing IR. Among them we mention metformin, pioglitazone, physical activity, weight loss, diet, etc. In the last decade, there are more observations of the influence of polyunsaturated fatty acids on IR. The most powerful seem to be omega-3 fatty acids. In our study, we wanted to asses if the administration of omega-3 fatty acids is involved in modifying IR. Materials and methods: We evaluated 126 diabetic patients with IR from January 2011 until July 2014. The study was open-label and non-randomized. For the determination of IR we used the HOMA-IR method. Results: For both males and females there was a regression of HOMA-IR during the 4 weeks of treatment with omega-3 and also after 2 weeks after stopping the administration of these fatty acids. The decrease of HOMA-IR was statistically significant (p<0.05. The statistic result observed in the next 2 weeks after stopping administration of omega-3 was also significant (p<0.05.

    The Wide-field Nearby Galaxy-cluster Survey (WINGS) is a wide-field multi-wavelength survey of X-ray selected clusters at z =0.04-0.07. The original 34'x34' WINGS field-of- view has now been extended to cover a 1 sq.deg field with both photometry and spectroscopy. In this paper we present the Johnson B and V-band OmegaCAM/VST observations of 46 WINGS clusters, together with the data reduction, data quality and Sextractor photometric catalogs. With a median seeing of 1arcs in both bands, our 25-minutes exposures in each band typically reach the 50% completeness level at V=23.1 mag. The quality of the astrometric and photometric accuracy has been verified by comparison with the 2MASS as well as with SDSS astrometry, and SDSS and previous WINGS imaging. Star/galaxy separation and sky-subtraction procedure have been tested comparing with previous WINGS data. The Sextractor photometric catalogues are publicly available at the CDS, and will be included in the next release of the WINGS database on the VO together wi...

    Fourteen n-alkanols (C1-C12, C14, and C16), 13 alpha,omega-n-alkanediols (C2-C12, C14, and C16), and 13 omega-chloro-alpha-alkanols (C2-C12, C14, and C16) were tested against Aspergillus niger, Trichoderma viride, and Myrothecium verucaria in Sabouraud dextrose agar at pH 4.0 and 5.6. Toxicity to Candida blbicans, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, and Mucor mucedo was determined in the same medium at pH 5.6 and 7.0 in the absence and presence of 10% beef serum. The fungitoxicity of these alcohols was influenced by chain length and insignificantly by the pH of the medium and the presence of beef serum. The C10-member of each series was most active; the order of activity of the three groups was chloroalkanols greater than alkanols greater than alkanediols. Compared to the fatty acids, the order of fungitoxicity on a weight basis was 2-alkynoic acids greater than 2-alkenoic acids greater than omega-chloralkanols greater than alkanoic acids greater than 2-bromoalkanoic acids greater than 2-fluoroalkanoic acids greater than n-alkoxyacetic acids greater than n-alkanols greater than alpha,omega-n-alkanediols.

    Production and decay of $\\Omega_c^0$ baryons is studied with $\\sim230 \\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ of data recorded with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II $e^+e^-$ asymmetric-energy storage ring at SLAC. The $\\Omega_c^0$ is reconstructed through its decays into $\\Omega^-\\pi^+$, $\\Omega^-\\pi^+\\pi^+\\pi^-$, and $\\Xi^-K^-\\pi^+\\pi^+$ final states. The invariant mass spectra are presented and the signal yields are extracted. Ratios of branching fractions are measured relative to the $\\Omega^-\\pi^+$ mode \\frac{{\\cal B}(\\Xi^-K^-\\pi^+\\pi^+)}{{\\cal B}(\\Omega^-\\pi^+)} &= 0.31 \\pm 0.15\\mathrm{(stat.)} \\pm 0.04\\mathrm{(syst.)}, \\frac{{\\cal B}(\\Omega^-\\pi^+\\pi^+\\pi^-)}{{\\cal B}(\\Omega^-\\pi^+)} &< 0.30\\qquad (90%\\mathrm{CL}). The momentum spectrum (not corrected for efficiency) of $\\Omega_c^0$ baryons is extracted from decays into $\\Omega^-\\pi^+$, establishing the first observation of $\\Omega_c^0$ production from B decays.

    Full Text Available The operations to purify deodorizer distillates were studied in this investigation. The purification technology included esterification, two stages of molecular distillation and crystallization. Separation tests by molecular distillation with and without previous esterification of fatty acids were carried out. Esterification gave bigger separation efficiency in all first stage molecular distillation tests. The second stage of molecular distillation allowed increasing concentrations of tocopherols and sterols. Crystallization of the distillated final stream by the second stage of molecular distillation allowed the separation of more than 40 % of sterols, and gave a highly concentrated product (more than 92 % w/w of sterols. The final concentration of tocopherols in two treated samples of sunflower deodorizer distillate was 33.94 % and 20.60 % w/w respectively, and a sample from soy processing gave a value of 56.49 %.En esta investigación se han estudiado las operaciones para la purificación de los destilados de desodorización.

    Full Text Available Changes in the "Common Agricultural Policy" of the European Union have increased the rapeseed crops on "set-aside" lands remarkably. Rapeseed oils are transesterified with methanol to obtain fatty acid methyl esters. Blends of these esters with diesel oil are sold in petrol stations in different european countries like any other fuel.
    This informative article starts by reviewing basic characteristics of diesel fuel, and continues with an analysis of physical properties, chemical composition and present specifications for the rapeseed methyl esters. Subsequently several implications derived from the industrial development of this biofuel are discussed. These implications are economic (production, consumption, prices, subventions, tax exemptions, ecological (nearly zero emissions for whole cycle of carbon dioxide, other exhaust emissions from combustion, ecobalances, and energetic (complete evaluation of energy expenditure for production, energetic ratios.

    Full Text Available Advances in the design of a bioreactor in the fats and oils industry have permitted the hydrolysis of triglycerides in mild conditions and improved productivity while avoiding the formation of unwanted byproducts. The present work develops a mathematical model that describes the hydrolytic activity of a tubular reactor with immobilized lipases for the production of glycerol and fatty acids from the oil trade. Runge Kutta’s numerical method of high order has been applied, considering that there is no accumulation of the substratum in the surface of the membrane, where the enzyme is. At the same time, different equations based on the kinetic model of Michaelis Mentens and the Ping-Pong bi-bi mechanism were examined. Experimental data in discontinuous systems are the basis for the development of the quantitative mathematical model that was used to simulate the process computationally. The obtained results allow for optimizing both the operative variables and the economic aspects of industrial processes.

    Full Text Available Microbacterium esteraromaticum es un microorganismo que se aísla con frecuencia de landfarming o procesos de biorremediación de hidrocarburos en la meseta de la Patagonia central (Argentina y se halla sometido a variaciones de temperatura y a cambios de salinidad que se producen naturalmente. Su adaptabilidad a esos cambios climáticos indujo al estudio de las modificaciones que se producen en su membrana celular para resistirlos. En este trabajo se estudió el efecto conjunto de la temperatura y la concentración de cloruro de sodio sobre la composición de los ácidos grasos de membrana en la cepa de Microbacterium esteraromaticum GNP5b. M. esteraromaticum utiliza, frente al incremento de la temperatura, la estrategia es aumentar la longitud de sus ácidos grasos de cadenas ramificada impar (17 átomos de carbono con disminución de 15:0 anteiso, así como el porcentaje de ácidos grasos 15:0 iso (de mayor punto de fusión a partir del respectivo anteiso. El aumento de la salinidad modifica la composición de ácidos grasos siguiendo patrones diferentes según sea la temperatura de incubación. A 14 y 28 °C incrementa los 15:0 iso y 17:0 iso en detrimento de sus homólogos anteiso. A 37 °C este grupo de ácidos grasos no sigue los mismos patrones anteriores.

    Even with the aggressive reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol by statin therapy, a high residual risk of cardiovascular events remains substantially and attracts attention to the need for additional preventive therapies. Therefore, effective reductions of residual risk of cardiovascular disease have emerged as therapeutic targets. Fibrates and omega-3 fatty acids have been introduced to reduce triglycerides and to increase high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and have shown anti-atherosclerotic, vascular and metabolic effects. However, some effects are controversial and very recent randomized clinical trials report different results from the earlier ones. In this review, we address the vascular and metabolic effects and the results of recent clinical trials of fibrates and omega-3 fatty acids. We also compared their effects under modern guideline therapy regarding potential drugs to reduce a residual cardiometabolic risk of cardiovascular disease.

    We present a measurement of the B{sup +} {yields} {omega}{ell}{sup +}{nu} branching fraction based on a sample of 467 million B{bar B} pairs recorded by the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II e{sup +}e{sup -} collider. We observe 1041 {+-} 133 signal decays, corresponding to a branching fraction of {Beta}(B{sup +} {yields} {omega}{ell}{sup +}{nu}) = (1.15 {+-} 0.15 {+-} 0.12) x 10{sup -4}, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. The dependence of the decay rate on q{sup 2}, the momentum transfer squared to the lepton system, is compared to QCD predictions of the form factors based on a quark model and light-cone sum rules.

    Full Text Available Good health has been linked with healthy diet. N-3 fatty acids are required for proper functioning of many physiological systems. There is a large body of evidence documenting the effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids with the first double bond at the third position from methyl-terminal on health benefits. Scientific evidence is accumulating to substantiate the role omega-3 fatty acids play in conditions such as cardiovascular disease, certain cancers and other diseases. The availability of n-3 fatty acids to various tissues is of major importance to health and depends on dietary intake for both normal development and in the prevention and management of chronic diseases.In this review we will summarize the biological properties of omega-3 fatty acids.

    The exclusive omega electroproduction off the proton was studied in a large kinematical domain above the nucleon resonance region and for the highest possible photon virtuality (Q2) with the 5.75 GeV beam at CEBAF and the CLAS spectrometer. Cross sections were measured up to large values of the four-momentum transfer (-t omega p, even for Q2 as large as 5 GeV2. Contributions of handbag diagrams, related to Generalized Parton Distributions in the nucleon, are therefore difficult to extract for this process. Remarkably, the high-t behaviour of the cross sections is nearly Q2-independent, which may be interpreted as a coupling of the photon to a point-like object in this kinematical limit.

  15. Thermal photon emission from the pi-rho-omega system

    2016-01-01

    We investigate thermal photon emission rates in hot hadronic matter from a system consisting of pi, rho, and omega mesons. The rates are calculated using both relativistic kinetic theory with Born diagrams as well as thermal field theory at the two-loop level. This enables us to cross-check our calculations and to manage a pole contribution that arises in the Born approximation corresponding to the omega -> pi^0 gamma radiative decay. After implementing hadronic form factors to account for finite-size corrections, we find that the resulting photo-emission rates are comparable to existing results from pi rho -> pi gamma processes in the energy regime of 1-3 GeV. We expect that our new sources will provide a non-negligible contribution to the total hadronic rates, thereby enhancing calculated thermal photon spectra from heavy-ion collisions, which could improve the description of current direct-photon data from experiment.

  16. OMEGA: The operational multiscale environment model with grid adaptivity

    Bacon, D.P.

    1995-07-01

    This review talk describes the OMEGA code, used for weather simulation and the modeling of aerosol transport through the atmosphere. Omega employs a 3D mesh of wedge shaped elements (triangles when viewed from above) that adapt with time. Because wedges are laid out in layers of triangular elements, the scheme can utilize structured storage and differencing techniques along the elevation coordinate, and is thus a hybrid of structured and unstructured methods. The utility of adaptive gridding in this moded, near geographic features such as coastlines, where material properties change discontinuously, is illustrated. Temporal adaptivity was used additionally to track moving internal fronts, such as clouds of aerosol contaminants. The author also discusses limitations specific to this problem, including manipulation of huge data bases and fixed turn-around times. In practice, the latter requires a carefully tuned optimization between accuracy and computation speed.

    Only about 25% of residue accumulating in the Federal Republic of Germany is currently used for the purposes of energy. This residue will be converted into fuel for power stations by the Omega process when the dumping of waste with a calorific value in excess of 5 MJ/kg is prohibited with effect from 2005. This oxygen melting process is suitable for the local use of substitute fuels. Waste is converted into a high-quality synthesis gas with a wide range of uses. The Omega process combines drying, thermal decomposition, gasification and melting of the material used in a single-stage process. This is now technologically possible for the first time by combining a metallurgical cupola furnace with a traditional gas producer. The highly-calorific synthesis gas produced by the Omega process can be used in block heat and power stations or as an industrial fuel gas, instead of natural gas. It is also suitable as a starting material for synthesising methanol. The gas is specifically processed in the multi-stage gas scrubber downstream of the reactor. The by-products of the Omega process are recyclable slag and pig iron. The only residue is filter dust from gas scrubbing. The first power station based on the Omega process is currently under construction in Rothenburg. The plant, which has an electrical output of 7.5 MW and an uncouplable thermal output of up to 10 MW, should go into operation not later than 2005. Contracts have already been signed for the supply of electricity to the grid of Esag Energieversorgung Sachsen Ost AG, Dresden, and connection to the Rothenburg heating grid. Approximately 50,000 t of substitute fuel should be used annually. (orig.) [German] Ab dem Jahr 2005 duerfen Abfaelle mit einem Heizwert von mehr als 5 MJ/kg nicht mehr deponiert werden.

    This work presents the synthesis of the binary compound PdAg and the electrochemical characterization for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in acid medium. The catalyst is obtained from the reduction of Pd(NO{sub 3}){sub 2}·2H{sub 2}O and AgNO{sub 3} with NaBH{sub 4} in THF. The synthesized compound was physically characterized with transmission electron microscopy (TEM), sweep electron microscopy (SEM) and x-ray diffraction (XRD) of powder. Electrochemical studies were conducted to determine the catalytic activity and intrinsic properties of the PdAg material for the ORR in acid medium using cyclic voltamperometry (CV), rotary disc electrode (RDE) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) in a solution of H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} 0.5 M at 25 degrees Celsius. The electrochemical current-potential responses were compared to those of palladium and platinum. The kinetic results showed an increase in the performance of the bimetallic electrocatalyst containing Ag as compared to pure Pd, but less than that obtained with nanometric Pt. The Tafel slopes obtained are roughly120 mV dec-1, similar to that reported for Pt and Pd and for other Ru-based electrocatalysts.

    Skeletal muscle is a plastic tissue capable of adapting and mal-adapting to physical activity and diet. The response of skeletal muscle to adaptive stimuli, such as exercise, can be modified by the prior nutritional status of the muscle. The influence of nutrition on skeletal muscle has the potential to substantially impact physical function and whole body metabolism. Animal and cell based models show that omega-3 fatty acids, in particular those of marine origin, can influence skeletal muscl...

    We study an $\\mathcal{N}=2$, pure $U(1)$ SYM theory on a Gibbons-Hawking space $\\Omega$-deformed using the $U(1)$ isometry. The resultant 3D theory, after an appropriate "Nekrasov-Witten" change of variables, is asymptotically equivalent to the undeformed theory at spatial infinity but differs from it as one approaches the NUT centers which are fixed points under the $U(1)$ action. The 3D theory may be recast in the form of a generalized hyperk\\"ahler sigma model introduced in \\cite{Dey:2014lja} where the target space is a one-parameter family of hyperk\\"ahler spaces. The hyperk\\"ahler fibers have a preferred complex structure which for the deformed theory depends on the parameter of $\\Omega$-deformation. The metric on the hyperk\\"ahler fiber can be reduced to a standard metric on $\\mathbb{C} \\times T^2$ with the modular parameter of the torus depending explicitly on the $\\Omega$-deformation parameter.

    Full Text Available Omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA are important constituents of the maturing brain and therefore considered crucial for brain development in utero and in early infancy. However, it is uncertain whether n-3 LCPUFA supplementation during pregnancy and lactation can have beneficial, sustainable effects on visual or cognitive development. Beneficial effects on child cognitive function after supplementation with EPA and DHA during pregnancy and lactation were observed at 4 years of age, but not at 3, 6 months or 7 years. In term infants LCPUFA when given in relative high dosages, seems to improve visual acuity, but not cognitive function. Evidence for an effect of LCPUFA supplementation of preterm infants remains inconclusive. In children older than 2 years of age, epidemiological evidence suggests an association between psychiatric or neurodevelopmental disorders and omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies. However, the evidence from randomized controlled trials exploring the impact of omega-3 fatty acids on cognitive performance or brain function in school-aged children is not conclusive. In conclusion, n-3 LCPUFA are highly present in the maturing brain and are important for normal brain functioning and development. When provided in relative high dosages, n-3 LCPUFA may improve visual acuity in term infants. However, it remains unclear whether supplementation with n-3 LCPUFA during pregnancy, early infancy, and childhood can improve cognitive function.

    The Omega Laser Facility at the University of Rochester's Laboratory for Laser Energetics is a 60-beam system used for inertial confinement fusion experiments. Uniform drive of the target surface requires precise beam timing to achieve accurate power balance. A new diagnostic has been implemented for measuring the relative beam-to-beam arrival time of each of the 60 beamlines. A 900-μm spherical diffuser placed at the target chamber center serves as a quasi-isotropic scattering source that allows a fixed optical detector to view light from any individual beamline. During a beam-timing run, the OMEGA laser is configured to generate frequency-tripled, 351-nm ultraviolet (UV) pulses with energies of ~50 pJ at a repetition rate of 5 Hz. Light from the scattering target is optically relayed to a fast photomultiplier tube and recorded on a digital oscilloscope. A portion of the original infrared (IR) seed pulse is fiber optically delivered to the beam-timing oscilloscope and recorded using a photodiode. By recording the scattered UV pulse and the IR seed on the same oscilloscope trace, a jitter-free measurement of the beam's arrival time can be made. Discrepancies in beam timing are corrected by adjusting the total optical path length of the beamlines. Typical variation in the measured arrival times of all 60 OMEGA beams after adjustment is <5 ps root mean square

    Exclusive production of $\\omega$ mesons was studied at the COMPASS experiment by scattering $160~\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c}$ muons off transversely polarised protons. Five single-spin and three double-spin azimuthal asymmetries were measured in the range of photon virtuality $1~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2 < Q^2 < 10~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2$, Bjorken scaling variable $0.003 < x_{\\mathit{Bj}} < 0.3$ and transverse momentum squared of the $\\omega$ meson $0.05~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2 < p_{T}^{2} < 0.5~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2$. The measured asymmetries are sensitive to the nucleon helicity-flip Generalised Parton Distributions (GPD) $E$ that are related to the orbital angular momentum of quarks, the chiral-odd GPDs $H_{T}$ that are related to the transversity Parton Distribution Functions, and the sign of the $\\pi\\omega$ transition form factor. The results are compared to recent calculations of a GPD-based model.

    We put forth a new mix model that relies on the development of a charge-separation electrostatic double-layer at the fuel-pusher interface early in the implosion of an Omega plastic ablator capsule. The model predicts a sizable pusher mix (several atom %) into the fuel. The expected magnitude of the double-layer field is consistent with recent radial electric field measurements in Omega plastic ablator implosions. Our theory relies on two distinct physics mechanisms. First, and prior to shock breakout, the formation of a double layer at the fuel-pusher interface due to fast preheat-driven ionization. The double-layer electric field structure accelerates pusher ions fairly deep into the fuel. Second, after the double-layer mix has occurred, the inward-directed fuel velocity and temperature gradients behind the converging shock transports these pusher ions inward. We first discuss the foundations of this new mix theory. Next, we discuss our interpretation of the radial electric field measurements on Omega implosions. Then we discuss the second mechanism that is responsible for transporting the pusher material, already mixed via the double-layer deep into the fuel, on the shock convergence time scale. Finally we make a connection to recent mix motivated experimental data on.

    A cross-metathesis process for preparing an .alpha.,.omega.-functionalized olefin, such as methyl 9-decenoate, and an .alpha.-olefin having three or more carbon atoms, such as 1-decene. The process involves contacting in a first reaction zone an .alpha.-functionalized internal olefin, such as methyl oleate, and an .alpha.-olefinic monomer having three or more carbon atoms, such as 1-decene, with a first metathesis catalyst to prepare an effluent stream containing the .alpha.,.omega.-functionalized olefin, such as methyl 9-decenoate, an unfunctionalized internal olefin, such as 9-octadecene, unconverted reactant olefins, and optionally, an .alpha.,.omega.-difunctionalized internal olefinic dimer, such as dimethyl 9-octadecen-1,18-dioate; separating said effluent streams; then contacting in a second reaction zone the unfunctionalized internal olefin with ethylene in the presence of a second metathesis catalyst to obtain a second product effluent containing the .alpha.-olefinic monomer having three or more carbon atoms; and cycling a portion of the .alpha.-olefinic monomer stream(s) to the first zone.

  11. The omega-square hypothesis for the seismic source

    The omega-square hypothesis assumes that the ground displacement u(t) in the far-field zone decays as the inverse square of frequency in the range ~1-30 Hz. This empirical fact remains theoretically unjustified. Our analysis of the problem is based on an integral representation of u(t) in terms of the source time function f and on the spectrum analysis of local features in f. The goal is to select the local features that will enable one to generate the omega-square behavior of u(t) on a large set of receivers. We found two appropriate fragments of f : first , f exhibits a local inverse-square-root behavior near the rupture front where the frontal surface is piecewise smooth (but not smooth and not rough ); and second, f is bounded near the rupture front where the frontal surface has a slight roughness (the Hurst parameter near 1). These facts can be useful for understanding the omega-square spectral behavior of the kinematic source models.

    We formulate the general form of omega-Z-gamma vertex in the framework based on the hidden local symmetry (HLS), which arises from the gauge invariant terms for intrinsic parity-odd (IP-odd) part of the effective action. Those terms are given as the homogeneous part of the general solution (having free parameters) to the Wess-Zumino (WZ) anomaly equation and hence are not determined by the anomaly, in sharp contrast to the Harvey-Hill-Hill (HHH) action where the relevant vertex is claimed to be uniquely determined by the anomaly. We show that, even in the framework that HHH was based on, the omega-Z-gamma vertex is actually not determined by the anomaly but by the homogeneous (anomaly-free) part of the general solution to the WZ anomaly equation having free parameters in the same way as in the HLS formulation: The HHH action is just a particular choice of the free parameters in the general solution. We further show that the omega-Z-gamma vertex related to the neutrino (nu) - nucleon (N) scattering cross secti...

    Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a member of neurotrophic family of growth factors, mainly found in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex of brain. Studies have shown that there is a link between BDNF and cognitive dysfunction, as well as there is a relationship between the PUFAs intake and their effect on BDNF production. Intake of PUFAs, mainly omega-3 and omega-6 has show increase in production of BDNF in brain. In our study we performed docking studies on PUFAs and their metabolites with BDNF using MVD (Molegro Virtual Docker), this has shown that the metabolites of the PUFAs mainly LXA_4, NPD1, HDHA have shown more binding affinity towards BDNF. These metabolites of PUFAs are responsible for modulation of BDNF activity. PMID:24307768

    Full Text Available Crypthecodinium cohnii is a heterotrophic dinoflagellate that can achieve a lipid content greater than 20% on dry weight. DHA can represent up to 40% of the total fatty acids. Our objective was to investigate the variation in fatty acid content when growth conditions are optimal compared with when there is limited growth, due to the absence of nitrogen in the media. Nitrogen-limited growth conditions caused the cells to stop dividing and accumulate lipids, principally as docohexanoic acid (DHA. Oxygen availability in the culture favoured DHA accumulation. In the cultures without nitrogen and with oxygen availability there was a lipid cell content 3,18 times higher than in the control condition (with nitrogen and air, and 2,25 higher than those without nitrogen and air. C. cohnii can be used as an optimal DHA source for the production of phytodiets in aquaculture.Crypthecodinium cohnii, es un dinoflagelado marino heterotrófico estricto, que puede alcanzar contenidos en lípidos superiores al 40% de su peso seco, representando el DHA más del 40% del conjunto total de ácidos grasos. El objetivo del presente trabajo fue el de establecer el perfil de variación de los ácidos grasos en condiciones de óptima disponibilidad de nutrientes y de supresión de nitrógeno. Los resultados muestran que en condiciones de supresión de nitrógeno las células dejan de dividirse y empiezan a acumular lípidos, especialmente ácido docosahexaenoico (DHA. La disponibilidad de oxígeno en el medio también favorece este proceso. En los cultivos sin nitrógeno y con disponibilidad de oxígeno se alcanzó un contenido celular de ácidos grasos 3,18 veces superior al alcanzado en la condición control (con nitrógeno y aire y 2,25 al observado en los cultivos sin nitrógeno no burbujeados. Crypthecodinium cohnii puede constituir una óptima fuente de DHA para la elaboración de fitodietas en acuicultura.

    The in-medium properties of the {omega} meson were investigated at the MAMI-C electron accelerator using the Crystal Ball/TAPS detector system to identify {omega} mesons through their {omega} {yields} {pi}{sup 0} {gamma} decay channel. Two solid targets (C, Nb) and a LH{sub 2} target as a reference have been used. In the energy range 900 to 1300 MeV the {omega} lineshapes for the different nuclei are compared and a broadening of the {omega} signal for the niobium target is observed in comparison to the liquid-hydrogen target. In a second analysis the {omega} momentum distributions for the solid targets are determined for 50 MeV/c wide bins. For both analyses a comparison to transport calculations shows that the data are consistent with an in-medium modification by collisional broadening, as observed by transparency ratio measurements.

    The general effects of whole-body gamma -irradiation at a mean absorbed dose of 250 rads were studied simultaneously in the unanaesthetized rabbit for 48 hours. They occurred early, with the following characteristics: arterial blood pressure decreased steadily as early as the 2nd hour and reached its minimum value on the 5th hour with a decrease of about 14%; it remained low during the following two days. Heart rate increased during the first hour, was the highest by the end of the second hour, and resumed normal value on the 24th hour. Internal body temperature increased during the 1st hour and was maximum by the end of the 2nd hour, with a mean increase of 1.2 deg C; hyperthermia steadily decreased between the 4th and the 6th hours and had completely disappeared by the 24th hour. Respiratory alkalosis is shown in the acido-basic balance by a raise of pH, a decrease of PCO/sub 2/ and arterial blood bicarbonates. These various changes seem to indicate a double origin, both central and peripheral. (FR)

    We survey recent results on the topological complexity of context-free omega-languages which form the second level of the Chomsky hierarchy of languages of infinite words. In particular, we consider the Borel hierarchy and the Wadge hierarchy of non-deterministic or deterministic context-free omega-languages. We study also decision problems, the links with the notions of ambiguity and of degrees of ambiguity, and the special case of omega-powers.

    Full Text Available Efficacy of omega-3 fatty acids in cardiology is so high that in many countries omega-3 fatty acids are included into the treatment protocols for patients with cardiovascular diseases. This therapeutic class slows down oxidative stress and chronic inflammation processes, thereby providing a significant contribution to the complex treatment of hypertension. Besides, omega-3 fatty acids slow down the aging process and prevent the development of age-related diseases affecting the rate of telomere shortening.

    Omega-3 [(n-3)] fatty acids have been linked to healthy aging throughout life. Recently, fish-derived omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA have been associated with fetal development, cardiovascular function, and Alzheimer’s disease. However, because our bodies do not efficiently produce some omega-3 fatty acids from marine sources, it is necessary to obtain adequate amounts through fish and fish-oil products. Studies have shown that EPA and DHA are important for proper fetal development, includin...

    Long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are essential for neural development and function. As key components of brain tissue, omega-3 PUFAs play critical roles in brain development and function, and a lack of these fatty acids has been implicated in a number of mental health conditions over the lifespan, including schizophrenia. We have previously shown that a 12-week intervention with omega-3 PUFAs reduced the risk of progression to psychotic disorder in young people with subt...

    2012-01-01

    We study Brans-Dicke theory of gravity in Riemann-Cartan space-times, and obtain general torsion solutions, which are completely determined by Brans-Dicke scalar field $\\Phi$, in the false vacuum energy dominated epoch. The substitution of the torsion solutions back to our action gives the original Brans-Dicke action with $\\Phi$-dependent Brans-Dicke parameter $\\omega(\\Phi)$. The evolution of $\\omega(\\Phi)$ during inflation is studied and it yields that $\\omega$ approaches to infinity at the end of inflation. It may solve the $\\omega$-problem in the extended inflation model.

    Full Text Available Considerable circumstantial evidence has accrued from both experimental animal and human clinical studies that support a role for omega-3 fatty acids (FA in the prevention of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC. Direct evidence from animal studies has shown that omega-3 FA inhibit ultraviolet radiation (UVR induced carcinogenic expression. In contrast, increasing levels of dietary omega-6 FA increase UVR carcinogenic expression, with respect to a shorter tumor latent period and increased tumor multiplicity. Both omega-6 and omega-3 FA are essential FA, necessary for normal growth and maintenance of health and although these two classes of FA exhibit only minor structural differences, these differences cause them to act significantly differently in the body. Omega-6 and omega-3 FA, metabolized through the lipoxygenase (LOX and cyclooxygenase (COX pathways, lead to differential metabolites that are influential in inflammatory and immune responses involved in carcinogenesis. Clinical studies have shown that omega-3 FA ingestion protects against UVR-induced genotoxicity, raises the UVR-mediated erythema threshold, reduces the level of pro-inflammatory and immunosuppressive prostaglandin E2 (PGE2 in UVR-irradiated human skin, and appears to protect human skin from UVR-induced immune-suppression. Thus, there is considerable evidence that omega-3 FA supplementation might be beneficial in reducing the occurrence of NMSC, especially in those individuals who are at highest risk.

    The aim of the study was to assess whether omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation alone or in combination with folic acid and B-group vitamins is effective in lowering homocysteine. The Medline Ovid, Embase and Cochrane databases were searched for randomized-controlled trial studies that intervened with omega-3 supplementation (with or without folic acid) and measured changes in homocysteine concentration. Studies were pooled using a random effects model for meta-analysis. Three different models were analyzed: all trials combined, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid trials, and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids with folic acid and B-group vitamin trials. Nineteen studies were included, consisting of 3267 participants completing 21 trials. Studies were heterogeneous; varying by dose, duration and participant health conditions. Across all trials, omega-3 supplementation was effective in lowering homocysteine by an average of 1.18μmol/L (95%CI: (-1.89, -0.48), P=.001). The average homocysteine-lowering effect was greater when omega-3 supplementation was combined with folic acid and B-group vitamins (-1.37μmol/L, 95%CI: (-2.38, -0.36), Pvitamins B6 and B12 may be more effective than omega-3 supplementation alone.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Targeted analgesic dietary interventions are a promising strategy for alleviating pain and improving quality of life in patients with persistent pain syndromes, such as chronic daily headache (CDH. High intakes of the omega-6 (n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs, linoleic acid (LA and arachidonic acid (AA may promote physical pain by increasing the abundance, and subsequent metabolism, of LA and AA in immune and nervous system tissues. Here we describe methodology for an ongoing randomized clinical trial comparing the metabolic and clinical effects of a low n-6, average n-3 PUFA diet, to the effects of a low n-6 plus high n-3 PUFA diet, in patients with CDH. Our primary aim is to determine if: A both diets reduce n-6 PUFAs in plasma and erythrocyte lipid pools, compared to baseline; and B the low n-6 plus high n-3 diet produces a greater decline in n-6 PUFAs, compared to the low n-6 diet alone. Secondary clinical outcomes include headache-specific quality-of-life, and headache frequency and intensity. Methods Adults meeting the International Classification of Headache Disorders criteria for CDH are included. After a 6-week baseline phase, participants are randomized to a low n-6 diet, or a low n-6 plus high n-3 diet, for 12 weeks. Foods meeting nutrient intake targets are provided for 2 meals and 2 snacks per day. A research dietitian provides intensive dietary counseling at 2-week intervals. Web-based intervention materials complement dietitian advice. Blood and clinical outcome data are collected every 4 weeks. Results Subject recruitment and retention has been excellent; 35 of 40 randomized participants completed the 12-week intervention. Preliminary blinded analysis of composite data from the first 20 participants found significant reductions in erythrocyte n-6 LA, AA and %n-6 in HUFA, and increases in n-3 EPA, DHA and the omega-3 index, indicating adherence.

    Preliminary posttest analyses have been completed on optical specimens exposed during the Omega II test series conducted on 14 July 2006. The Omega Facility, located at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) at the University of Rochester was used to produce X-ray environments through the interaction of intense pulsed laser radiation upon germanium-loaded silica aerogels. The optical specimen testing was supported by GH Systems through experiment design, pre- and post-test analyses, specimen acquisition, and overall technical experience. The test specimens were fabricated and characterized by Surface Optics Corporation (SOC), San Diego, CA and were simple protected gold coatings on silica substrates. Six test specimens were exposed, five filtered with thin beryllium foil filters, and one unfiltered which was exposed directly to the raw environment. The experimental objectives were: (1) demonstrate that tests of optical specimens could be performed at the Omega facility; (2) evaluate the use and survivability of beryllium foil filters as a function of thickness; (3) obtain damage data on optical specimens which ranged from no damage to damage; (4) correlate existing thermal response models with the damage data; (5) evaluate the use of the direct raw environment upon the specimen response and the ability/desirability to conduct sensitive optical specimen tests using the raw environment; and (6) initiate the development of a protocol for performing optical coatings/mirror tests. This report documents the activities performed by GH Systems in evaluating and using the environments provided by LLNL, the PUFFTFT analyses performed using those environments, and the calculated results compared to the observed and measured posttest data.

    The calibration campaign of the National Ignition Facility X-ray Spectrometer (NXS) was carried out at the Omega laser facility. Spherically symmetric, laser-driven, millimeter-scale x-ray sources of K-shell and L-shell emission from various mid-Z elements were designed for the 2-18 keV energy range of the NXS. The absolute spectral brightness was measured by two calibrated spectrometers. We compare the measured performance of the target design to radiation hydrodynamics simulations.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Major depressive disorder (MDD during pregnancy and postpartum depression are associated with significant maternal and neonatal morbidity. While antidepressants are readily used in pregnancy, studies have raised concerns regarding neurobehavioral outcomes in exposed infants. Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, most frequently from fish oil, has emerged as a possible treatment or prevention strategy for MDD in non-pregnant individuals, and may have beneficial effects in pregnant women. Although published observational studies in the psychiatric literature suggest that maternal docosahexaenoic acid (DHA deficiency may lead to the development of MDD in pregnancy and postpartum, there are more intervention trials suggesting clinical benefit for supplementation with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA in MDD. Methods/Design The Mothers, Omega-3 and Mental Health study is a double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized controlled trial to assess whether omega-3 fatty acid supplementation may prevent antenatal and postpartum depressive symptoms among pregnant women at risk for depression. We plan to recruit 126 pregnant women at less than 20 weeks gestation from prenatal clinics at two health systems in Ann Arbor, Michigan and the surrounding communities. We will follow them prospectively over the course of their pregnancies and up to 6 weeks postpartum. Enrolled participants will be randomized to one of three groups: a EPA-rich fish oil supplement (1060 mg EPA plus 274 mg DHA b DHA-rich fish oil supplement (900 mg DHA plus 180 mg EPA; or c a placebo. The primary outcome for this study is the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI score at 6 weeks postpartum. We will need to randomize 126 women to have 80% power to detect a 50% reduction in participants' mean BDI scores with EPA or DHA supplementation compared with placebo. We will also gather information on secondary outcome measures which will include: omega-3 fatty acid concentrations in maternal

    Purpose Blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) are common sources of complaints from patients. To evaluate the effect on ocular symptoms, ocular findings, and serum and meibomian gland contents, patients with blepharitis and MGD were prospectively evaluated to determine the effects of dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids. Methods In a prospective randomized placebo-controlled masked trial, patients with simple obstructive MGD and blepharitis, who had discontinued all topical medications and tetracyclines, received oral omega-3 dietary supplementation consisting of two 1000-mg capsules 3 times a day. Patients were examined every 3 months for 1 year with the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) objective clinical measures, including tear production and stability, ocular surface and meibomian gland health, and biochemical plasma, red blood cell (RBC), and meibum evaluation. Primary outcome measures were change in tear breakup time (TBUT), meibum score, and overall OSDI score at 1 year. Results At 1 year, the omega-3 group had a 36% and 31% reduction in their omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratios in RBCs and plasma, respectively (P = .3), whereas the placebo group demonstrated no change. At 12 months, the omega-3 group had an improvement in TBUT, OSDI score, and meibum score. Changes in meibum content were observed in the omega-3 group (P = .21); the level of meibum saturated fatty acids decreased. Conclusions This trial demonstrated a decrease in the RBC and plasma ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 in patients taking omega-3 dietary supplementation, as compared to controls, and improvements in their overall OSDI score, TBUT, and meibum score. This is the first demonstration of an induced change in the fatty acid saturation content in meibum as a result of dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids. PMID:19277245

  16. Influence of omega-3 fatty acid status on the way rats adapt to chronic restraint stress.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marie Hennebelle

    Full Text Available Omega-3 fatty acids are important for several neuronal and cognitive functions. Altered omega-3 fatty acid status has been implicated in reduced resistance to stress and mood disorders. We therefore evaluated the effects of repeated restraint stress (6 h/day for 21 days on adult rats fed omega-3 deficient, control or omega-3 enriched diets from conception. We measured body weight, plasma corticosterone and hippocampus glucocorticoid receptors and correlated these data with emotional and depression-like behaviour assessed by their open-field (OF activity, anxiety in the elevated-plus maze (EPM, the sucrose preference test and the startle response. We also determined their plasma and brain membrane lipid profiles by gas chromatography. Repeated restraint stress caused rats fed a control diet to lose weight. Their plasma corticosterone increased and they showed moderate behavioural changes, with increases only in grooming (OF test and entries into the open arms (EPM. Rats fed the omega-3 enriched diet had a lower stress-induced weight loss and plasma corticosterone peak, and reduced grooming. Rats chronically lacking omega-3 fatty acid exhibited an increased startle response, a stress-induced decrease in locomotor activity and exaggerated grooming. The brain omega-3 fatty acids increased as the dietary omega-3 fatty acids increased; diets containing preformed long-chain omega-3 fatty acid were better than diets containing the precursor alpha-linolenic acid. However, the restraint stress reduced the amounts of omega-3 incorporated. These data showed that the response to chronic restraint stress was modulated by the omega-3 fatty acid supply, a dietary deficiency was deleterious while enrichment protecting against stress.

    Full Text Available A rising number of studies have raised questions regarding the association of mental illness in a particular mood disorders such as depression with low intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Given all the side-effects that traditional antidepressants put patients at risk for, omega-3 is certainly a better alternative that might improve depressive symptoms and patient′s compliance to treatment by removing the stigma of psychiatric drugs. This study critically reviewed 12 relevant studies from PubMed published between 1992 - 2013 in order to determine whether omega-3 supplements or diet rich in fish were likely to show affectivity in reducing depressive symptoms. Most of the studies showed clear association between omega-3 and reduced depressive symptoms. Studies support the adjunctive role of omega-3 and high fish consumption in reducing depression. Omega-3 fatty acids have also shown to be safe when used during pregnancy to prevent postpartum depression. Although some studies showed mixed results of positive findings, the use of omega-3 supplements could not be an absolute substitute of antidepressants due to limitation in their studies. Minority of the studies reviewed did not correlate omega-3 with the improvement of depressive symptoms for many reasons such as the healthy life-style of subjects, etc. Given the fact that depression has various causes, this puts the testing of omega-3 in a lot of bias due to several variables such as dose, formula, period administered as well as the candidates′ state of health. Further research is definitely warranted on a larger sample size with close follow-up using proper assessment tools. Omega-3 has shown to have minimal or no side-effects at all, which makes it important for mental health professional to at least ensure that patients diagnosed with depression have adequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids whether by supplementation or in their daily diet.

  18. THE EFFECT OF OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION ON THE INFLAMMATORY RESPONSE TO ECCENTRIC STRENGTH EXERCISE

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available Omega-3 fatty acids (omega-3 have anti-inflammatory properties. However, it is not known if omega-3 supplementation attenuates exercise-induced inflammation. We tested the hypothesis that omega-3 supplementation reduces inflammation that is induced by eccentric arm curl exercise. Healthy adult men and women (n=11; 35 ± 10 y performed eccentric biceps curls on two occasions, once after 14d of dietary omega-3 restriction (control trial and again after 7d of 3,000 mg/d omega-3 supplementation (omega-3 trial. Before and 48 h after eccentric exercise, signs of inflammation was assessed by measuring soreness ratings, swelling (arm circumference and arm volume, and temperature (infrared skin sensor. Arm soreness increased (p < 0.0001 in response to eccentric exercise; the magnitude of increase in soreness was 15% less in the omega-3 trial (p = 0.004. Arm circumference increased after eccentric exercise in the control trial (p = 0.01 but not in the omega-3 trial (p = 0.15. However, there was no difference between trials (p = 0.45. Arm volume and skin temperature did not change in response to eccentric exercise in either trial. These findings suggest that omega-3 supplementation decreases soreness, as a marker of inflammation, after eccentric exercise. Based on these findings, omega-3 supplementation could provide benefits by minimizing post-exercise soreness and thereby facilitate exercise training in individuals ranging from athletes undergoing heavy conditioning to sedentary subjects or patients who are starting exercise programs or medical treatments such as physical therapy or cardiac rehabilitation

    We are performing scaled astrophysics experiments on Omega and on NIF. Laser driven counter-streaming interpenetrating supersonic plasma flows can be studied to understand astrophysical electromagnetic plasma phenomena in a controlled laboratory setting. In our Omega experiments, the counter-streaming flow plasma state is measured using Thomson scattering diagnostics, demonstrating the plasma flows are indeed super-sonic and in the collisionless regime. We observe a surprising additional electron and ion heating from ion drag force in the double flow experiments that are attributed to the ion drag force and electrostatic instabilities. [1] A proton probe is used to image the electric and magnetic fields. We observe unexpected large, stable and reproducible electromagnetic field structures that arise in the counter-streaming flows [2]. The Biermann battery magnetic field generated near the target plane, advected along the flows, and recompressed near the midplane explains the cause of such self-organizing field structures [3]. A D3He implosion proton probe image showed very clear filamentary structures; three-dimensional Particle-In-Cell simulations and simulated proton radiography images indicate that these filamentary structures are generated by Weibel instabilities and that the magnetization level (ratio of magnetic energy over kinetic energy in the system) is ∼0.01 [4]. These findings have very high astrophysical relevance and significant implications. We expect to observe true collisionless shock formation when we use >100 kJ laser energy on NIF.

    In this note, we study different limits of an Omega-deformed (2,0) six-dimensional gauge theory realized in a M-theory fluxtrap background. Via a chain of dualities, we connect the Omega-deformed SYM to a new four-dimensional gauge theory which we refer to as the reciprocal gauge theory. This theory has several properties in common with Liouville field theory, such as its gauge coupling b^2 =\\epsilon_2 / \\epsilon_1, and its behavior under S-duality. Finally, we realize the BPS states on the SYM side of the AGT correspondence and follow them along the chain of dualities. In the fluxtrap frame, we are dealing with two distinct types of states localized in different radial positions, while in the reciprocal frame, we find single states carrying both charges localized in one place which appear to be perturbatively stable. Our microscopic picture of the small-b limit exhibits semiclassically BPS bound states, which are not visible at the level of the partition function.

    Polar-drive experiments are being performed on OMEGA in preparation for future ignition attempts using the same method on the National Ignition Facility. This work presents results from a series of experiments employing shimmed shells whose shape (thinner at the target equator) is used to further compensate for the oblique illumination present in the polar-drive beam configuration. Implosion experiments were performed with multiple-picket laser pulses from 40 OMEGA beams driving gas-filled, shimmed shells. The implosions were diagnosed with x-ray backlighting, fusion yield, and reaction particle spectra from which the implosion symmetry, areal density, and core conditions are inferred. The compressed shell shape determined from framed x-ray radiography is compared to that predicted by the 2-D hydrodynamics code DRACO. The benefits of using a shimmed target for polar-drive implosions are less oblique illumination, better low-mode implosion symmetry, and are clearly demonstrated by these experiments. This work was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Inertial Confinement Fusion under Cooperative Agreement No. DE-FC52-08NA28302.

  4. Omega-3 fatty acids as adjunctive therapy in Crohns disease.

    2006-01-01

    Crohns disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that can have a significant impact on the health of those afflicted. The etiology of the disease is unknown, but genetic, environmental, dietary, and immunological factors are thought to be involved. Multiple nutrients can become depleted during active disease due to inadequate intake or malabsorption. Preventing these deficiencies is paramount in the care of those suffering from Crohns disease. Often the traditional treatments (medications) have limited effectiveness and negative side effects that inhibit their use. Enteral nutrition has promising therapeutic benefits, but its use is often limited to the pediatric population due to poor patient acceptability. Omega-3 fatty acids have been investigated for their anti-inflammatory properties as an alternative to traditional care. This article reviews the etiology of Crohns disease, nutritional deficiencies, traditional treatments, and the use of omega-3 fatty acids in the prevention of Crohns recurrence. The results from clinical trials have been conflicting, but a new fish oil preparation that limits the side effects of traditional fish oil therapy shows promise as an adjunctive treatment for Crohns disease. Continued research is needed to validate these findings.

  8. Omega-3: a link between global climate change and human health.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kang, Jing X

    2011-01-01

    In recent years, global climate change has been shown to detrimentally affect many biological and environmental factors, including those of marine ecosystems. In particular, global climate change has been linked to an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide, UV irradiation, and ocean temperatures, resulting in decreased marine phytoplankton growth and reduced synthesis of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). Marine phytoplankton are the primary producers of omega-3 PUFAs, which are essential nutrients for normal human growth and development and have many beneficial effects on human health. Thus, these detrimental effects of climate change on the oceans may reduce the availability of omega-3 PUFAs in our diets, exacerbating the modern deficiency of omega-3 PUFAs and imbalance of the tissue omega-6/omega-3 PUFA ratio, which have been associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disease. This article provides new insight into the relationship between global climate change and human health by identifying omega-3 PUFA availability as a potentially important link, and proposes a biotechnological strategy for addressing the potential shortage of omega-3 PUFAs in human diets resulting from global climate change.

  9. Omega-hydroxylation of phytanic acid in rat liver microsomes: implications for Refsum disease.

    2004-07-01

    The 3-methyl-branched fatty acid phytanic acid is degraded by the peroxisomal alpha-oxidation route because the 3-methyl group blocks beta-oxidation. In adult Refsum disease (ARD), peroxisomal alpha-oxidation is defective, which is caused by mutations in the gene coding for phytanoyl-CoA hydroxylase in the majority of ARD patients. As a consequence, phytanic acid accumulates in tissues and body fluids. This study focuses on an alternative route of phytanic acid degradation, omega-oxidation. The first step in omega-oxidation is hydroxylation at the omega-end of the fatty acid, catalyzed by a member of the cytochrome P450 multienzyme family. To study this first step, the formation of hydroxylated intermediates was studied in rat liver microsomes incubated with phytanic acid and NADPH. Two hydroxylated metabolites of phytanic acid were formed, omega- and (omega-1)-hydroxyphytanic acid (ratio of formation, 5:1). The formation of omega-hydroxyphytanic acid was NADPH dependent and inhibited by imidazole derivatives. These results indicate that phytanic acid undergoes omega-hydroxylation in rat liver microsomes and that an isoform of cytochrome P450 catalyzes the first step of phytanic acid omega-oxidation.

    An increasing body of evidences from preclinical as well as epidemiological and clinical studies suggest a potential beneficial role of dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids for cognitive functioning. In this narrative review, we will summarize and discuss recent findings from epidemiological, interventional and experimental studies linking dietary consumption of omega-3 fatty acids to cognitive function in healthy adults. Furthermore, affective disorders and schizophrenia (SZ) are characterized by cognitive dysfunction encompassing several domains. Cognitive dysfunction is closely related to impaired functioning and quality of life across these conditions. Therefore, the current review focues on the potential influence of omega-3 fatty acids on cognition in SZ and affective disorders. In sum, current data predominantly from mechanistic models and animal studies suggest that adjunctive omega-3 fatty acid supplementation could lead to improved cognitive functioning in SZ and affective disorders. However, besides its translational promise, evidence for clinical benefits in humans has been mixed. Notwithstanding evidences indicate that adjunctive omega-3 fatty acids may have benefit for affective symptoms in both unipolar and bipolar depression, to date no randomized controlled trial had evaluated omega-3 as cognitive enhancer for mood disorders, while a single published controlled trial suggested no therapeutic benefit for cognitive improvement in SZ. Considering the pleiotropic mechanisms of action of omega-3 fatty acids, the design of well-designed controlled trials of omega-3 supplementation as a novel, domain-specific, target for cognitive impairment in SZ and affective disorders is warranted.

    We study the process $J/\\Psi \\to \\gamma \\phi \\omega$, measured by the BES experiment, where a neat peak close to the $\\phi \\omega$ threshold is observed and is associated to a scalar meson resonance around 1800 MeV. We make the observation that a scalar resonance coupling to $\\phi \\omega$ unavoidably couples strongly to $K \\bar K$, but no trace of a peak is seen in the $K \\bar K$ spectrum of the $J/\\Psi \\to \\gamma K \\bar K$. This, reinforced by the negative results from a devoted Belle experiment in a related reaction, serves us to rule out the interpretation of the observed peak as a signal of a new resonance. After this is done, a thorough study is done on the production of a pair of vector mesons and how its unavoidable interaction leads necessarily to a peak in the $J/\\Psi \\to \\gamma \\phi \\omega$ reaction close to the $\\phi \\omega$ threshold, due to the dynamical generation of the $f_0(1710)$ resonance by the vector-vector interaction. We then show that both the shape obtained for the $\\phi \\omega$ mass d...

    The prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is increasing dramatically especially in developing countries like India. CVD is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. There has been a growing awareness of the role of nutrients in the prevention of CVD. One specific recommendation in the battle against CVD is the increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids, which are polyunsaturated fatty acids. Studies have reported inverse associations of CVD with dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids, suggesting that omega-3 fatty acids supplementation might exert protective effects on CVD. They exert their cardioprotective effect through multiple mechanisms. Omega-3 fatty acid therapy has shown promise as a useful tool in the primary and secondary prevention of CVD. This review briefly summarizes the effects of omega-3 fatty acids in primary and secondary prevention of CVD.

    The well H-43 was drilled in Los Humeros Geothermal Field, Pue., in 2007 and 2008. When well production was measured, it was found the well produced acid fluids with high corrosion potential. Then it was decided to try to neutralize the acidity of the H-43 fluids by adding a solution of sodium hydroxide. This is a basic substance used to neutralize mainly the acid groups H+, and the goal was to raise the pH of the fluids to minimize its corrosive features. First sodium hydroxide was injected into the well to protect the casing of 244.4 mm (9 5/8 in) against corrosion and then all the surface installations. It was possible to increase the pH of the well fluid from 5.2 up to 6.8 without altering the steam production, thus demonstrating the neutralization procedure is feasible. The approximate costs of the neutralization tests performed, including equipment for the proposed neutralization system, the neutralizer (NaOH), and drilling the well are about 71.4 million pesos (around 5.5 million USD). We estimate a benefit/cost ratio of 1.5 and a return on investment in five years, considering the income from energy sales at present value. [Spanish] El pozo H-43 fue perforado en el campo de Los Humeros, Pue., en 2007-2008, y al evaluar su produccion se encontro que producia fluidos acidos de alto potencial corrosivo. Se decidio por tanto realizar una prueba para neutralizar la acidez de los fluidos de este pozo, que consistio en agregarle una solucion de hidroxido de sodio. Esta es una sustancia basica que neutraliza principalmente los grupos acidos H+, con lo que se buscaba aumentar el pH del fluido lo necesario para reducir al maximo su caracter corrosivo. La inyeccion del hidroxido de sodio se realizo dentro del pozo a fin de proteger de la corrosion a la tuberia de revestimiento de 244.4 mm (9 5/8 pulgadas), y posteriormente a todos los equipos superficiales. Como resultado de la prueba, se logro aumentar el pH del fluido producido por el pozo de 5.2 a un maximo de 6

    We analysed high-resolution UVES spectra of six stars belonging to the subgiant branch of omega Centauri, and derived abundance ratios of 19 chemical elements (namely Al, Ba, C, Ca, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, La, Mg, Mn, N, Na, Ni, Sc, Si, Sr, Ti, and Y). A comparison with previous abundance determinations for red giants provided remarkable agreement and allowed us to identify the sub-populations to which our targets belong. We found that three targets belong to a low-metallicity population at [Fe/H]~-2.0 dex, [alpha/Fe]~+0.4 dex and [s/Fe]~0 dex. Stars with similar characteristics were found in small amounts by past surveys of red giants. We discuss the possibility that they belong to a separate sub-population that we name VMP (very metal-poor, at most 5% of the total cluster population), which - in the self-enrichment hypothesis - is the best-candidate first stellar generation in omega Cen. Two of the remaining targets belong to the dominant metal-poor population (MP) at [Fe/H]~-1.7 dex, and the last one to the metal-...

    The light curves of the first overtone classical Cepheids show a discontinuity in their phi_21 vs. P diagram, near P=3.2 days. This feature, commonly attributed to the 2:1 resonance with the fourth overtone, is not reproduced by the hydrodynamical models. With the goal of reexamining the resonance hypothesis, we have obtained new CORAVEL radial velocity curves for 13 s-Cepheids. Together with 11 objects of Krzyt et al.(1998), the combined sample covers the whole range of s-Cepheid periods. The velocity Fourier parameters display a strong characteristic resonant behavior. In striking contrast to photometric ones, they vary smoothly with the pulsation period and show no jump at 3.2 days. The existing radiative hydrodynamical models match the velocity parameters very well. The center of the omega_4 = 2 omega_1 resonance is estimated to occur at P_r = 4.58+-0.04 days, i.e. at a considerable longer period than previously assumed. We identify two new members of the s-Cepheid group: MY Pup and V440 Per.

    Full Text Available Background: The fatty acids of omega-3 family have high nutritional value and can prevent coronary heart disease.These fatty acids are found in various fish and sea foods. To investigate the level of omega-3 fatty acids indifferent kind of fish head, muscle and liver from 30 species of fish collected from Persian Gulf.Material and Methods: In this experimental study, the fish were collected by hunting from Boushehr and Hormozgansea ports. Their head, muscle and liver fatty acids were determined on their methylated fatty acids dissolvedin N-hexin. Quantitative analysis of fatty acids was performed by gas chromatography (GC with methylmyristateused as the reference material in this analysis and the qualitative analysis of fatty acids was done bygas chromatography and mass spectrometer (GC- mass and cod liver oil which contained all of omega-3 fattyacids used as standard.Results: Our study showed that some fish were good sources of omega-3 fatty acids and Trout (Ghezel-ALA,Bartail flathead (Zaminkan-e-domnavari, Malabar blood snapper (Sorkhoo malabari had maximum levels ofomega-3 in all body tissues. Other types of fish were rich in omega 3 fatty acids in separate organs, such as liverin Bartail flathead (Zaminkan-e-domnavari, head in Sillago Sihama (Shoort and muscle in Trout (Ghezel-ALA. In contrast, lesser amount of omega 3 fatty acids is found in tissues of other species of fish such as Silverpomfret (Halva sefid, Longfin trevally (Gish-e-derazbale and Xiphophorus Hellerii (Dom-shamshiri.Conclusion: This research showed that the liver of fish had the highest level of omega-3 fatty acids and fish musclecontained more omega-3 fatty acids than the head. Thus for having maximum levels of omega-3 fatty acids inthe diet, all fish tissues can be served. As liver and head of fish are not usually consumed, it is recommended thatsuch organs be used for preparation of omega 3-containing cardio supportive supplements.

    Forced swimming test is used to induce a characteristic behavior of immobility in rats, which resembles depression in humans to some extent. We evaluated the effect of omega-3 fatty acids alone as well as compared it with the standard antidepressant therapy with fluoxetine in both acute and chronic studies. In both the studies, rats were divided into 4 groups and subjected to the following drug interventions - Group 1- control: Group 2- fluoxetine in dose of 10 mg/kg subcutaneously 23.5, 5 and 1 h before the test: Group 3- omega-3 fatty acids in dose of 500 mg/kg orally; Group 4- fluoxetine plus omega-3 fatty acids both. In acute study, omega-3 fatty acids were given in single dose 2 h prior to the test while in chronic study omega-3 fatty acids were given daily for a period of 28 days. All animals were subjected to a 15-min pretest followed 24 h later by a 5-min test. A time sampling method was used to score the behavioral activity in each group. The results revealed that in acute study, omega-3 fatty acids do not have any significant effect in forced swimming test. However, in chronic study, omega-3 fatty acids affect the immobility and swimming behavior significantly when compared with control (p climbing behavior and the efficacy of combination of omega-3 fatty acids and fluoxetine is significantly more than that of fluoxetine alone in changing the behavioral activity of rats in forced swimming test. It leads to the conclusion that omega-3 fatty acids have antidepressant activity per se, and the combination of fluoxetine and omega-3 fatty acids has more antidepressant efficacy than fluoxetine alone in forced swimming test in Wistar rats.

    Full Text Available The biological activities of omega-3 fatty acids (n-3 FAs have been under extensive study for several decades. However, not much attention has been paid to differences of dietary forms, such as triglycerides (TGs versus ethyl esters or phospholipids (PLs. New innovative marine raw materials, like krill and fish by-products, present n-3 FAs mainly in the PL form. With their increasing availability, new evidence has emerged on n-3 PL biological activities and differences to n-3 TGs. In this review, we describe the recently discovered nutritional properties of n-3 PLs on different parameters of metabolic syndrome and highlight their different metabolic bioavailability in comparison to other dietary forms of n-3 FAs.

    2014-04-01

    Omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docohexaenoic acid (DHA), provide significant health benefits for brain function/development and cardiovascular conditions. However, most EPA and DHA for human consumption is sourced from small fatty fish caught in coastal waters and, with depleting global fish stocks, recent research has been directed towards more sustainable sources. These include aquaculture with plant-based feeds, krill, marine microalgae, microalgae-like protists and genetically-modified plants. To meet the increasing demand for EPA and DHA, further developments are needed towards land-based sources. In particular large-scale cultivation of microalgae and plants is likely to become a reality with expected reductions in production costs, yield increasese and the adequate addressing of genetically modified food acceptance issues.

    Full Text Available Stroke is the third commonest cause of death following cardiovascular diseases and cancer. In particular, in recent years, the morbidity and mortality of stroke keep remarkable growing. However, stroke still captures people attention far less than cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Past studies have shown that oxidative stress and inflammation play crucial roles in the progress of cerebral injury induced by stroke. Evidence is accumulating that the dietary supplementation of fish oil exhibits beneficial effects on several diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, and cancer. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs, the major component of fish oil, have been found against oxidative stress and inflammation in cardiovascular diseases. And the potential of n-3 PUFAs in stroke treatment is attracting more and more attention. In this review, we will review the effects of n-3 PUFAs on stroke and mainly focus on the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of n-3 PUFAs.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A development program has been undertaken to produce a large ring image Cerenkov detector (RICH) for use at the CERN Omega Spectrometer. A prototype Cerenkov counter has been constructed and successfully operated in a high energy particle beam, Cerenkov rings having been observed in an experimental time projection chamber (TPC) using the photoionising agents Triethylamine (TEA) and Tetrakis (dimethylamine) ethylene (TMAE). Systematic measurements have been made of the optical properties of window materials and reflecting surfaces in the vacuum ultraviolet region. Results of these tests are presented, and the design of the large detector based on these experiences together with Monte Carlo simulations of the events expected in the WA69 experiment, is discussed.

  1. Phenolipids as antioxidants in omega-3 enriched food products

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Sørensen, Ann-Dorit Moltke; Aleman, M.; Durand, E.;

    Foods containing omega-3 PUFA are highly susceptible to oxidation. This causes formation of undesirable flavors and loss of health-beneficial fatty acids. To protect these food products, antioxidant addition may be a solution. Lately, extensive work has been performed on phenolipids...... and their efficacy in model emulsion systems. Since the polar paradox hypothesis was a simplified statement of the antioxidant efficacy in emulsions, a new term, “cut-off effect”, was introduced. The cut-off effect describes the efficacy of phenolipids in simple emulsions. However, most food products consist...... of a complex matrix where several factors may influence the oxidative stability, e.g. type and concentration of emulsifier. Thus, a better understanding of the antioxidative effect of phenolipids in complex foods is of great interest. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antioxidative effect of caffeic...

    Full Text Available Technology of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT has been adapted worldwide to generate transgenic animals, although the traditional procedure relies largely on instrumental micromanipulation. In this study, we used the modified handmade cloning (HMC established in cattle and pig to produce transgenic sheep with elevated levels of omega-3 (n-3 fatty acids. Codon-optimized nematode mfat-1 was inserted into a eukaryotic expression vector and was transferred into the genome of primary ovine fibroblast cells from a male Chinese merino sheep. Reverse transcriptase PCR, gas chromatography, and chromosome analyses were performed to select nuclear donor cells capable of converting omega-6 (n-6 into n-3 fatty acids. Blastocysts developed after 7 days of in vitro culture were surgically transplanted into the uterus of female ovine recipients of a local sheep breed in Xinjiang. For the HMC, approximately 8.9% (n  =925 of reconstructed embryos developed to the blastocyst stage. Four recipients became pregnant after 53 blastocysts were transplanted into 29 naturally cycling females, and a total of 3 live transgenic lambs were produced. Detailed analyses on one of the transgenic lambs revealed a single integration of the modified nematode mfat-1 gene at sheep chromosome 5. The transgenic sheep expressed functional n-3 fatty acid desaturase, accompanied by more than 2-folds reduction of n-6/n-3 ratio in the muscle (p<0.01 and other major organs/tissues (p<0.05. To our knowledge, this is the first report of transgenic sheep produced by the HMC. Compared to the traditional SCNT method, HMC showed an equivalent efficiency but proved cheaper and easier in operation.

    Full Text Available The total fatty acids profile of a genuine milk fat from an important milk producing area of Argentina was determined together with the total fatty acids profiles of sunflower, soybean and coconut oils and bovine and porcine fats. These results were used for characterization of the fatty acid profile of genuine milk fat and for detection of the adulteration of milk fat with those oils and fats. Triglycerides were transesterified in an acid medium with ethanol – sulfuric acid. Ethyl esters were quantified by gas chromatography using two internal standards (C7:0 and C17:0 added to the anhydrous fat. The most characteristic fatty acids were determined. The fatty acids profiles of mixtures of milk fat with vegetable and animal fats were mathematically calculated. Vegetable oils were added from 2 to 10 %, while animal fats were added up to 15 %. In this way different data matrices were obtained. Stepwise multiple regression analysis was applied to these matrices with the aim of obtaining a relation between adulteration percentage and the total fatty acids profile for each fat selected as adulterant. Good correlation coefficients were obtained for analyzed matrices. Equations were validated by employing the cross validation method, and were applied to genuine samples of milk fat and to mixtures by mass balances of these milk fats with the different adulterant fats. A good prediction of adulterations was obtained with the application of equations.Se determinó el perfil de ácidos grasos totales de muestras de grasa láctea genuina de una importante cuenca lechera de la República Argentina obtenidas durante un año (2002-2003, y de aceites de girasol, soja, coco y sebos vacuno y porcino, con el objetivo de estudiar el perfil característico de la grasa láctea y poder detectar adulteraciones de la misma con las grasas mencionadas.

    Full Text Available Diatom, hydrocarbons and fatty acid sedimentary records were used for reconstructing the recent (last 150 years palaeolimnological history of Laguna Chica of San Pedro (Concepción, VIII Región, Chile. Cluster analyses (Constrained Incremental Sum of Squares on the diatom data revealed three distinct periods. The first period (1883-1940's showed a pronounced increase in sedimentation rate and a slight increase in organic matter accumulation. In this period, eutrophic species (Aulacoseira granulata and Staurosira construens became increasingly dominant. From the 1940s until the 1970s the diatom signal is more equivocal: after the initial decrease in the relative abundance of A. granulata and S. construens their numbers fluctuate without a clear pattern. Sedimentation rates strongly fluctuate in this period. From 1978 onwards eutrophic species are in decline while indicators of oligotrophic conditions, such as Cyclotella stelligera and Aulacoseira distans, become more abundant. This shift in the lake trophic status could not be attributed to a reduction in the nutrient load from the catchment and we hypothesize that the invasion of the lake by the submersed macrophyte Egeria densa has altered nutrient availability to the plankton communities. This is in agreement with the hydrocarbons and fatty acid analyses which demonstrate a shift in carbon number distributions from short chain alkanes and alkanoic acids (typical for microalgae to long chain molecules (characteristic for higher plants in the upper layers of the lake sedimentSe realizó la reconstrucción histórica de los últimos 150 años de Laguna Chica de San Pedro (Concepción, VIII Región, Chile, a través de la utilización de los restos de diatomeas, hidrocarburos y ácidos grasos contenidos en la columna de sedimento.

    Full Text Available Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD is the most important cause of chronic liver disease and is considered the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome associated with diabetes mellitus type 2. The prevalence of NAFLD in the general population reaches 15-20%. It is also estimated that nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH affects 3% of the population. NAFLD refers to a wide spectrum of liver damage, which ranges from simple steatosis or intracellular triglyceride accumulation, to inflammation (NASH, fibrosis and cirrhosis. The mechanisms involved in the accumulation of triglycerides in the liver and subsequent hepatocellular damage are multifactorial and are not completely understood. However, metabolic changes such as insulin resistance (IR are developed, being a common factor in the retention of fatty acids (FA within the hepatocytes with oxidation and production of free radicals at the mitochondrial level, which are capable of causing lipid peroxidation, cytokine production, and necrosis. In addition, there are alterations in the hepatic bioavailability of long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, conditions that alter the expression of a series of transcriptional factors involved in lipolytic and lipogenic processes in the liver. A greater knowledge of the etiopathogenic mechanisms of NAFLD is fundamental for the development of future effective therapeutic strategies. The pathophysiological fundamentals of liver steatosis are analyzed in this study.La enfermedad de Hígado graso no alcohólico (HGNA es la causa más importante de enfermedad hepática crónica y es considerado la manifestación hepática del síndrome metabólico asociado a obesidad y diabetes mellitus tipo 2.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The changing of omega-6/omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA in the food supply of Western societies occurred over the last 150 years is thought to promote the pathogenesis of many inflammatory-related diseases, including depressive disorders. Several epidemiological studies reported a significant inverse correlation between intake of oily fish and depression or bipolar disorders. Studies conducted specifically on the association between omega-3 intake and depression reported contrasting results, suggesting that the preventive role of omega-3 PUFA may depend also on other factors, such as overall diet quality and the social environment. Accordingly, tertiary prevention with omega-3 PUFA supplement in depressed patients has reached greater effectiveness during the last recent years, although definitive statements on their use in depression therapy cannot be yet freely asserted. Among the biological properties of omega-3 PUFA, their anti-inflammatory effects and their important role on the structural changing of the brain should be taken into account to better understand the possible pathway through which they can be effective both in preventing or treating depression. However, the problem of how to correct the inadequate supply of omega-3 PUFA in the Westernized countries’ diet is a priority in order to set food and health policies and also dietary recommendations for individuals and population groups.

  8. The role of omega-3 fatty acids in adult hippocampal neurogenesis

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available Neurogenesis occurs in limited areas of the adult mammalian brain, and has been reported in the hippocampus of rodents and man. Neurogenesis is enhanced in conditions associated with enhanced synaptic plasticity and following neuronal injury, suggesting a role for neurogenesis in cognition and brain repair. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs have been shown to promote hippocampal neurogenesis in a variety of models. Importantly, recent work has shown that the fat-1 transgenic mouse, an animal model of endogenous omega-3 PUFA enrichment, exhibits enhanced neurogenesis, with concomitant improvements in spatial memory compared to wild type mice. During ageing, the rate of neurogenesis declines significantly and there is a strong correlation between memory impairment in hippocampal-dependent tasks and this decline. Interestingly, there is a strong correlation between omega-3 PUFA and hippocampal-dependent memory tasks, and we have recently shown that supplementation of aged rats with omega-3 PUFAs partially reverses the age-related decline in neurogenesis. Thus omega-3 PUFAs positively influence neurogenesis, and these effects may contribute to improved cognitive performance. However, the mechanisms by which omega-3 PUFAs regulate neurogenesis remain unclear, although a number or putative targets have been suggested. The aims of this paper are to review the role of omega-3 PUFA in hippocampal neurogenesis, and explore some of the potential mechanisms of action which may underlie the observed effects.

    Full Text Available The impact of omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs on cognition is heavily debated. In the current study, the possible association between omega-3 LCPUFAs in blood and cognitive performance of 266 typically developing adolescents aged 13–15 years is investigated. Baseline data from Food2Learn, a double-blind and randomized placebo controlled krill oil supplementation trial in typically developing adolescents, were used for the current study. The Omega-3 Index was determined with blood from a finger prick. At baseline, participants finished a neuropsychological test battery consisting of the Letter Digit Substitution Test (LDST, D2 test of attention, Digit Span Forward and Backward, Concept Shifting Test and Stroop test. Data were analyzed with multiple regression analyses with correction for covariates. The average Omega-3 Index was 3.83% (SD 0.60. Regression analyses between the Omega-3 Index and the outcome parameters revealed significant associations with scores on two of the nine parameters. The association between the Omega-3 Index and both scores on the LDST (β = 0.136 and p = 0.039, and the number of errors of omission on the D2 (β = −0.053 and p = 0.007. This is a possible indication for a higher information processing speed and less impulsivity in those with a higher Omega-3 Index.

    Full Text Available Optimal nutrition is one of the most important determinants of healthier ageing, reducing the risk of disability, maintaining mental and physical functions, and thus preserving and ensuring a better quality of life. Dietary intake and nutrient absorption decline with age, thus increasing the risk of malnutrition, morbidity and mortality. Specific nutrients, particularly long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs, might have the potential of preventing and reducing co-morbidities in older adults. Omega-3 PUFAs are able to modulate inflammation, hyperlipidemia, platelet aggregation, and hypertension. Different mechanisms contribute to these effects, including conditioning cell membrane function and composition, eicosanoid production, and gene expression. The present review analyzes the influence of omega-3 PUFAs status and intake on brain function, cardiovascular system, immune function, muscle performance and bone health in older adults. Omega-3 FAs may have substantial benefits in reducing the risk of cognitive decline in older people. The available data encourage higher intakes of omega-3 PUFAs in the diet or via specific supplements. More studies are needed to confirm the role of omega-3 FAs in maintaining bone health and preventing the loss of muscle mass and function associated with ageing. In summary, omega-3 PUFAs are now identified as potential key nutrients, safe and effective in the treatment and prevention of several negative consequences of ageing.

    Greater amounts of physical activity (PA) and omega-3 fatty acids have both been independently associated with better cognitive performance. Because of the overlapping biological effects of omega-3 fatty acids and PA, fatty acid intake may modify the effects of PA on neurocognitive function. The present study tested this hypothesis by examining whether the ratio of serum omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid levels would moderate the association between PA and executive and memory functions in 344 participants (Mean age=44.42 years, SD=6.72). The Paffenbarger Physical Activity Questionnaire (PPAQ), serum fatty acid levels, and performance on a standard neuropsychological battery were acquired on all subjects. A principal component analysis reduced the number of cognitive outcomes to three factors: n-back working memory, Trail Making test, and Logical Memory. We found a significant interaction between PA and the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid serum levels on Trail Making performance and n-back performance, such that higher amounts of omega-3 levels offset the deleterious effects of lower amounts of PA. These effects remained significant in a subsample (n=299) controlling for overall dietary fat consumption. There were no significant additive or multiplicative benefits of higher amounts of both omega-3 and PA on cognitive performance. Our results demonstrate that a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids might mitigate the effect of lower levels of PA on cognitive performance. This study illuminates the importance of understanding dietary and PA factors in tandem when exploring their effects on neurocognitive health.

    Omega-3 fatty acids (FAs) are essential nutritional components that must be obtained from foods. Increasing evidence validate that omega-3 FAs are beneficial for bone health, and several mechanisms have been suggested to mediate their effects on bone, including alterations in calcium absorption and urinary calcium loss, prostaglandin synthesis, lipid oxidation, osteoblast formation and inhibition of osteoclastogenesis. However, to date, there is scant information regarding the effect of omega-3 FAs on the developing skeleton during the rapid growth phase. In this study we aim to evaluate the effect of exposure to high levels of omega-3 FAs on bone development and quality during prenatal and early postnatal period. For this purpose, we used the fat-1 transgenic mice that have the ability to convert omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids and the ATDC5 chondrogenic cell line as models. We show that exposure to high concentrations of omega-3 FAs at a young age accelerates bone growth through alterations of the growth plate, associated with increased chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation. We further propose that those effects are mediated by the receptors G-protein coupled receptor 120 (GPR120) and hepatic nuclear factor 4α, which are expressed by chondrocytes in culture. Additionally, using a combined study on the structural and mechanical bone parameters, we show that high omega-3 levels contribute to superior trabecular and cortical structure, as well as to stiffer bones and improved bone quality. Most interestingly, the fat-1 model allowed us to demonstrate the role of maternal high omega-3 concentration on bone growth during the gestation and postnatal period.

    omega-Crystallin of the octopus lens is related to aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH) of vertebrates (Tomarev, S. I., Zinovieva, R. D., and Piatigorsky, J. (1991) J. Biol. Chem. 266, 24226-24231) and ALDH1/eta-crystallin of elephant shrews (Wistow, G., and Kim, H. (1991) J. Mol. Evol. 32, 262-269). Only very low amounts of omega-crystallin are present in the squid lens. Here, we have cloned omega-crystallin cDNAs of the octopus (Octopus dofleini) and squid (Ommastrephes sloani pacificus) lenses. The deduced amino acid sequences of omega-crystallin from these species are 78% identical to each other, 56-58% identical to cytoplasmic ALDH1 and mitochondrial ALDH2 of vertebrates (which are 66-68% identical to each other), and 40% identical to Escherichia coli and spinach ALDHs. These data are consistent with the idea that the ALDH1/ALDH2 gene duplication in vertebrates occurred after divergence of cephalopods from the line giving rise to vertebrates, but before the separation of squid and octopus. Southern blot hybridization indicated that omega-crystallin is encoded by few genes (possibly just one) in octopus and squid. Northern blot hybridization revealed two bands (2.7 and 9.0 kilobases) of omega-crystallin RNA in the octopus lens and one band (4.2 kilobases) in the squid lens; omega-crystallin RNAs were undetectable in numerous non-lens tissues of octopus and squid, suggesting lens-specific expression of this gene(s). Finally, extracts of the octopus lens had no detectable ALDH activity using different substrates, consistent with omega-crystallin having no enzymatic activity. Taken together, our results suggest that omega-crystallin evolved by duplication of an ancestral gene encoding ALDH and subsequently specialized for refraction in the transparent lens while losing ALDH activity and expression in other tissues.

    Full Text Available Measurements of molar volume, refraction index and dynamic viscosity in mixtures of fatty acids or triglycerides and trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene and hexane were realized. Temperature range studied was 278-313 K each 5 K. The relationship between molar volume and molar fraction show high correlation coefficient In fatty acids with trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene mixtures. On the other hand, hexane mixtures show little contractions of molar volume at low molar fractions. Triglyceride mixtures present important deviations with regard to the ideality of the molar volume. The adjusts obtained for the molar volume values versus temperature are acceptable, calculating the coefficients of thermal expansion of the studied mixtures. Equally, the adjust of the experimental results of viscosity for two prediction equations are studied: one of additive type and the other of parabolic type.

Las mezclas de ácidos grasos con tricloroetileno y tetracloroetileno, presentan unos altos coeficientes de correlación para los valores del volumen molar frente a la fracción molar, mientras que las mezclas con hexano, a fracciones molares bajas, manifiestan una pequeña contracción del volumen molar. Las mezclas de triglicéridos presentan importantes desviaciones con respecto a la Idealidad del volumen molar. Los ajustes obtenidos para los valores del volumen molar frente a la temperatura son aceptables, determinándose los valores del coeficiente de dilatación volumétrica a presión constante de las mezclas estudiadas. Igualmente se ha estudiado el ajuste de los resultados experimentales de viscosidad a dos ecuaciones de predicción: una del tipo aditiva y otra del tipo parabólico.

    The $\\bar{\\Omega}/\\Omega$ ratio originating from string decays is predicted to be larger than unity in proton proton interactions at SPS energies ($E_{\\rm lab}$=160 GeV). The anti-omega dominance increases with decreasing beam energy. This surprising behavior is caused by the combinatorics of quark-antiquark production in small and low-mass strings. Since this behavior is not found in a statistical description of hadron production in proton proton collisions, it may serve as a key observable to probe the hadronization mechanism in such collisions.

  20. Factors Influencing the Effect of Milkbased Emulsifiers on Lipid Oxidation in Omega-3 Emulsions

    Horn, Anna Frisenfeldt

    Intake of fish oil, and in particular the long chained polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, has over the last centuries been associated with a wide range of health beneficial effects. Nevertheless, the intake of these healthy lipids is still lower than recommended in most Western populations....... An interest in omega-3 enriched foods has therefore developed. The challenge when the polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids are added to foods is their sensitivity towards heating, metal ions and oxygen, as these factors can lead to lipid oxidation. To avoid this, a possible approach is to incorporate...

    Increasing recognition of the importance of the omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) has caused greater attention about dietary intake of these fatty acids. Fatty fish is the major dietary source of these fatty acids. Because of the low intake of fish at many places, foods...... enriched with omega-3 LCPUFA can be good alternatives to improve the intake of these fatty acids. Effects of lipid structures and food matrices on bioavailability of omega-3 LCPUFA have been investigated.

  4. Baseline omega-3 index correlates with aggressive and attention deficit disorder behaviours in adult prisoners.

    Barbara J Meyer

    Full Text Available There is emerging evidence that the supplementation of omega-3 contributes to a decrease in aggressive behaviour in prison populations. A challenge of such research is achieving statistical power against effect sizes which may be affected by the baseline omega-3 index. There are no published data on the blood omega-3 index with studies of this kind to assess the variability of the blood omega-3 index in conjunction with aggression and attention deficit assessments.To determine if the variance of the omega-3 index is correlated with aggressive and attention deficit behaviour in a prison population.136 adult male prisoners were recruited from South Coast Correctional Centre (SCCC, NSW Australia. A 7 point categorisation was used to quantify levels of aggressive behaviour (4 weeks from individual SCCC case notes, whereby higher scores correspond to increasingly aggressive behaviour. Study participants completed the Aggression Questionnaire (AQ and the Brown's Attention Deficit Disorder Scales (BADDS, provided a blood sample for erythrocyte fatty acid analysis using gas chromatography and the omega-3 index was calculated.The baseline omega-3 index ranged from 2.3% to 10.3%, indicating that some participants already had substantial omega-3 intake, however a median of 4.7% indicated a lower overall omega-3 intake than the general Australian population. Assessment of aggressive and attention deficit behaviour shows that there were negative correlations between baseline omega-3 index and baseline aggression categorisation scores (r = -0.21, P = 0.016; total AQ score (r = -0.234, P = 0.011; Anger (r = -0.222 p = 0.016; Hostility AQ (r = -0.239, P = 0.009; indirect aggression (r = -0.188 p = 0.042; total BADDS (r = -0.263, p = 0.005; Activation (r = -0.224, p = 0.016; Attention (r = -0.192, p = 0.043; Effort (r = -0.253, p = 0.007; Affect (r = -0.330, p = 0.000 and Memory (r = -0.240, p = 0.010.There is a high variability in omega-3 status of a NSW prison

  5. Neuronal calcium channel antagonists. Discrimination between calcium channel subtypes using omega-conotoxin from Conus magus venom

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The omega-conotoxins from the venom of fish-hunting cone snails are probably the most useful of presently available ligands for neuronal Ca channels from vertebrates. Two of these peptide toxins, omega-conotoxins MVIIA and MVIIB from the venom of Conus magus, were purified. The amino acid sequences show significant differences from omega-conotoxins from Conus geographus. Total synthesis of omega-conotoxin MVIIA was achieved, and biologically active radiolabeled toxin was produced by iodination. Although omega-conotoxins from C. geographus (GVIA) and C. magus (MVIIA) appear to compete for the same sites in mammalian brain, in amphibian brain the high-affinity binding of omega-conotoxin MVIIA has narrower specificity. In this system, it is demonstrated that a combination of two omega-conotoxins can be used for biochemically defining receptor subtypes and suggested that these correspond to subtypes of neutronal Ca2+ channels

    Consumption of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids is known to decrease the risk of major cardiovascular events. Lipases, a class of triacylglycerol hydrolases, have been extensively tested to concentrate omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils, under mild enzymatic conditions. However, no lipases with preference for omega-3 fatty acids selectivity have yet been discovered or developed. In this study we performed an exhaustive computational study of substrate-lipase interactions by docking, both covalent and non-covalent, for 38 lipases with a large number of structured triacylglycerols containing omega-3 fatty acids. We identified some lipases that have potential to preferentially hydrolyze omega-3 fatty acids from structured triacylglycerols. However omega-3 fatty acid preferences were found to be modest. Our study provides an explanation for absence of reports of lipases with omega-3 fatty acid hydrolyzing ability and suggests methods for developing these selective lipases.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background This research was conducted to explore the relationships between the levels of omega-3 fatty acids in serum phospholipid and key fatty acid ratios including potential cut-offs for risk factor assessment with respect to coronary heart disease and fatal ischemic heart disease. Methods Blood samples (n = 2053 were obtained from free-living subjects in North America and processed for determining the levels of total fatty acids in serum phospholipid as omega-3 fatty acids including EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid, 20:5 n-3 and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid, 22:6 n-3 by combined thin-layer and gas-liquid chromatographic analyses. The omega-3 levels were correlated with selected omega-6: omega-3 ratios including AA (arachidonic acid, 20:4n-6: EPA and AA:(EPA+DHA. Based on previously-published levels of omega-3 fatty acids considered to be in a 'lower risk' category for heart disease and related fatality, 'lower risk' categories for selected fatty acid ratios were estimated. Results Strong inverse correlations between the summed total of omega-3 fatty acids in serum phospholipid and all four ratios (omega-6:omega-3 (n-6:n-3, AA:EPA, AA:DHA, and AA:(EPA+DHA were found with the most potent correlation being with the omega-6:omega-3 ratio (R2 = 0.96. The strongest inverse relation for the EPA+DHA levels in serum phospholipid was found with the omega-6: omega-3 ratio (R2 = 0.94 followed closely by the AA:(EPA+DHA ratio at R2 = 0.88. It was estimated that 95% of the subjects would be in the 'lower risk' category for coronary heart disease (based on total omega-3 ≥ 7.2% with omega-6:omega-3 ratios Conclusions Strong inverse correlations between the levels of omega-3 fatty acids in serum (or plasma phospholipid and omega-6: omega-3 ratios are apparent based on this large database of 2053 samples. Certain fatty acid ratios may aid in cardiovascular disease-related risk assessment if/when complete profiles are not available.

    Microalgae are the primary producers of omega-3 LC-PUFA, which are known for their health benefits. Their oil may thus be a potential alternative for fish oil. However, oxidative and hydrolytic stability of omega-3 LC-PUFA oils are important parameters. The purpose of this work was therefore to evaluate these parameters in oils from photoautotrophic microalgae (Isochrysis, Phaeodactylum, Nannochloropsis gaditana, and Nannochloropsis sp.) obtained with hexane/isopropanol (HI) and hexane (H) and compare them with commercial omega-3 LC-PUFA oils. When the results of both the primary and secondary oxidation parameters were put together, it was clear that fish, tuna, and heterotrophic microalgae oil are the least oxidatively stable oils, whereas krill oil and the microalgae oils performed better. The microalgal HI oils were shown to be more oxidatively stable than the microalgal H oils. The hydrolytic stability was shown not to be a problem during the storage of any of the oils.

Con el fin de establecer un referente de base se utilizaron las puestas individuales de 50 hembras de tilapia roja (Oreochromis spp. para determinar los contenidos en los huevos de proteína (% MS, extracto etéreo (% MS, energía (cal g-1 y los perfiles de ácidos grasos (%, con algunas relaciones de interés analítico. Salvo ciertas variaciones menores, los valores encontrados se ajustan a los registros disponibles para la especie en diferentes estudios, lo que sugiere que las dietas ofrecidas a los reproductores experimentales contienen los mínimos necesarios para asegurar una provisión de nutrientes y energía suficientes para los embriones y las larvas en formación. Se analiza que, como punto de partida, esta serie de datos tiene utilidad para el desarrollo de trabajos destinados a mejorar los estándares de producción de alevinos, considerando que las variaciones en la composición, que pueden ser determinadas sobre los huevos, se pueden utilizar y tienen validez como un indicativo directo de su calidad.

    Full Text Available The influence exerted by the length or the insaturation of acyl chain on characteristics of fatty acid monolayers spread on aqueous solutions containing ethanol, glycerol, glucose or sucrose, is studied using a Langmuir type surface balance. The monolayer stability is function of acyl chain length and presence of insaturation. Generally, the factors decreasing monolayer stability can help transformations towards configurations with more expanded structures.

    Se ha estudiado la influencia que ejercen la longitud y la insaturación de la cadena acílica sobre las características de las monocapas de ácidos grasos esparcidas sobre medios acuosos que contienen etanol, glicerina, glucosa o sacarosa, utilizando una balanza de superficie de tipo Langmuir. La estabilidad de la monocapa es función de la longitud de la cadena acílica y de la presencia de insaturación. En general, los mismos factores que disminuyen la estabilidad de la monocapa pueden favorecer las transiciones hacia configuraciones con estructuras más expandidas.

    Full Text Available Existen diferentes técnicas para la obtención directa de células madre embrionarias a través de embriones criopreservados en nitrógeno líquido (-196 ºC, blastómeros individuales, activación de ovocitos por transferencia nuclear y células madre del líquido amniótico. También es posible obtener células madre adultas hematopoyéticas y de la médula ósea, más conocidas y empleadas en la clínica desde hace tiempo, así como también de la sangre del cordón umbilical en recién nacidos y de la grasa corporal en adultos. La grasa autóloga corporal extraída mediante liposucción se reutiliza en ocasiones para injertar o infiltrar otras zonas corporales y faciales como material de relleno, pero en la mayoría de los casos es desechada. Por lo general, para obtener un resultado satisfactorio en el trasplante de grasa autóloga, son necesarios varios tiempos quirúrgicos por lo que sería muy útil contar con un banco de tejido adiposo personalizado. Existen diferentes estudios que demuestran que el tejido adiposo aspirado por liposucción convencional puede preservarse y almacenarse con éxito a baja temperatura (-85 ºC en banco de tejido para futuras aplicaciones. Las células madre mesenquimales (MSCs poseen gran capacidad de proliferación y diferenciación con un alto valor terapéutico. El tejido graso es un reservorio importante de MSCs capaces de diferenciarse en tejido óseo, cartilaginoso, muscular, etc. Si reservamos una pequeña cantidad del tejido graso lipoaspirado, podemos obtener una cantidad suficiente de MSCs y conservarlas mediante un método óptimo de criopreservación. En 2007 realizamos un estudio de la grasa lipoaspirada en 36 pacientes para demostrar y validar el método de obtención de tejido graso con su posterior traslado, manipulación y criopreservación en banco de células madre. Los resultados fueron satisfactorios y en junio del 2010 se validó el método de recogida, procesamiento y almacenamiento

    Our recent study indicates that maternal vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acid status influence plasma and erythrocyte fatty acid profile in dams. The present study examines the effects of prenatal and postnatal vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acid status on lipid metabolism in the offspring. Pregnant dams were divided into five groups: Control; Vitamin B12 deficient (BD); Vitamin B12 supplemented (BS); Vitamin B12 deficient group supplemented with omega-3 fatty acids (BDO); Vitamin B12 supplemented group with omega-3 fatty acids (BSO). The offspring were continued on the same diets till 3 month of age. Vitamin B12 deficiency increased cholesterol levels (pomega-3 fatty acids together play a crucial role in regulating the genes involved in lipid metabolism in adult offspring.

    Skeletal muscle loss is associated with aging as well as pathological conditions. Satellite cells (SCs) play an important role in muscle regeneration. Omega-3 fatty acids are widely studied in a variety of muscle wasting diseases; however, little is known about their impact on skeletal muscle regeneration. The aim of this review is to evaluate studies examining the effect of omega-3 fatty acids, α-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid on the regulation of SC proliferation and differentiation. This review highlights mechanisms by which omega-3 fatty acids may modulate the myogenic program of the stem cell population within skeletal muscles and identifies considerations for future studies. It is proposed that minimally three myogenic transcriptional regulatory factors, paired box 7 (Pax7), myogenic differentiation 1 protein, and myogenin, should be measured to confirm the stage of SCs within the myogenic program affected by omega-3 fatty acids.

    Direct-drive-implosion experiments from both OMEGA and the National Ignition Facility (NIF) are critical to gain confidence in ignition predictions on the NIF. Adequate performance of hydrodynamically scaled 1.8-MJ ignition designs must be obtained on OMEGA at 26 kJ. Implosions on the NIF must be used to identify and mitigate the effect of laser-plasma interactions (LPI's) on hydrodynamic parameters at the NIF scale. Results from spherically driven OMEGA cryogenic implosion experiments are described. Mitigation of nonuniformity sources and cross-beam energy transfer (CBET) is important for improving target performance on OMEGA. Initial polar-driven implosion experiments on the NIF have provided valuable measurements of trajectory and symmetry. Simulations that include the effect of CBET more closely reproduce the observed velocity.

    The effect of phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) on the synthesis, assembly and processing of the components of the T cell receptor (TcR) was studied with special focus on the CD3 omega chain. Treatment of the human leukemic T cell line Jurkat with PMA increased the synthesis of the Ti alpha, CD......3 gamma and CG3 zeta chains two- to threefold and the synthesis of Ti beta and CD3 delta epsilon omega complexes five- to sevenfold as assessed by metabolic labeling, immunoprecipitation and sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by scanning densitometry. The amount...... of TcR complexes expressed on the cell surface was decreased after 16 h of PMA treatment. Based on these results we propose a role of CD3 omega in retention of TcR complexes. From PMA-treated CEM cells more than 50-fold the amount of CD3 delta epsilon omega complexes was immunoprecipitated as compared...

    2015-01-01

    This article introduces the {\\Omega} counter, a frequency counter -- or a frequency-to-digital converter, in a different jargon -- based on the Linear Regression (LR) algorithm on time stamps. We discuss the noise of the electronics. We derive the statistical properties of the {\\Omega} counter on rigorous mathematical basis, including the weighted measure and the frequency response. We describe an implementation based on a SoC, under test in our laboratory, and we compare the {\\Omega} counter to the traditional {\\Pi} and {\\Lambda} counters. The LR exhibits optimum rejection of white phase noise, superior to that of the {\\Pi} and {\\Lambda} counters. White noise is the major practical problem of wideband digital electronics, both in the instrument internal circuits and in the fast processes which we may want to measure. The {\\Omega} counter finds a natural application in the measurement of the Parabolic Variance, described in the companion article arXiv:1506.00687 [physics.data-an].

    Omega Centauri, the Milky Way's most massive and enigmatic old stellar cluster, offers a treasure trove of astronomical discovery and controversy, including debate about the existence of an intermediate mass black hole (IMBH) buried in the cluster's core. We report preliminary results of deep 290 ksec) Chandra ACIS-I imaging of Omega Cen, which reveals no X-ray source at the cluster center reported by Anderson and van der Marel (2010), or at any other proposed center for the cluster. We discuss the significance of this new X-ray limit for the possible presence of an IMBH in Omega Cen. We also briefly describe our multiwavelength imaging and spectroscopic campaigns, which probe Omega Cen's binary populations, and the light they shed on the cluster's dynamical history.

    The 3-omega (3{omega}) method is utilized to measure the effective thermal diffusivity of nanofluids. Metal lines which work as either a heater or a temperature sensor on a pyrex wafer are microfabricated. Thermal modeling of the traditional 3{omega} method is modified so that the thermal property of a droplet of the fluid that is placed on top of the two parallel thin film heaters can be calculated. Sinusoidal heat pulses are given to the heater and the induced temperature oscillation at a known distance is measured to calculate the thermal diffusivity of the surrounding fluid. The thermal diffusivity of the nanofluid containing Multi-Wall Carbon NanoTubes (MWCNTs) is measured with the fabricated 3{omega} device. The thermal conductivity and the heat capacity of the nanofluids can simultaneously be measured by the proposed method.

    Lipid and fatty acid levels in the edible flesh of 17 baked freshwater fish from Brazil's southern region were determined. Analyses of fatty acids methyl esters were performed by gas chromatography. Palmitic acid (C16:0) was the predominant saturated fatty acid, accouting for 50-70% of total saturated acids. Linoleic acid (C18:2 omega 6), linolenic acid (C18:3 omega 3), and docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6 omega 3) were the predominant polyunsatured fatty acids (PUFA). The data revealed that species such as barbado, corvina, pintado, and truta were good sources of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and that most freshwater fish examined were good sources of PUFA-omega 3.

    Several sources of information suggest that man evolved on a diet with a ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids of approximately 1 whereas today this ratio is approximately 10:1 to 20-25:1, indicating that Western diets are deficient in omega 3 fatty acids compared with the diet on which humans evolved and their genetic patterns were established. Omega-3 fatty acids increase bleeding time; decrease platelet aggregation, blood viscosity, and fibrinogen; and increase erythrocyte deformability, thus decreasing the tendency to thrombus formation. In no clinical trial, including coronary artery graft surgery, has there been any evidence of increased blood loss due to ingestion of omega 3 fatty acids. Many studies show that the effects of omega 3 fatty acids on serum lipids depend on the type of patient and whether the amount of saturated fatty acids in the diet is held constant. In patients with hyperlipidemia, omega 3 fatty acids decrease low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol if the saturated fatty acid content is decreased, otherwise there is a slight increase, but at high doses (32 g) they lower LDL cholesterol; furthermore, they consistently lower serum triglycerides in normal subjects and in patients with hypertriglyceridemia whereas the effect on high-density lipoprotein (HDL) varies from no effect to slight increases. The discrepancies between animal and human studies most likely are due to differences between animal and human metabolism. In clinical trials eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the form of fish oils along with antirheumatic drugs improve joint pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis; have a beneficial effect in patients with ulcerative colitis; and in combination with drugs, improve the skin lesions, lower the hyperlipidemia from etretinates, and decrease the toxicity of cyclosporin in patients with psoriasis. In various animal models omega 3 fatty acids decrease the number and size of tumors and increase the time

    Full Text Available Abstract Background A growing number of observational and epidemiological studies have suggested that mental illness, in particular mood disorders, is associated with reduced dietary intake and/or cellular abundance of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA. This has prompted researchers to test the efficacy of omega-3 PUFA in a range of different psychiatric disorders. We have critically reviewed the double blind placebo controlled clinical trials published prior to April 2007 to determine whether omega-3 PUFA are likely to be efficacious in these disorders. Results Most trials involved a small number of participants but were largely well designed. Omega-3 PUFA were well tolerated by both children and adults with mild gastrointestinal effects being the only consistently reported adverse event. For schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder we found little evidence of a robust clinically relevant effect. In the case of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and related disorders, most trials showed at most small benefits over placebo. A limited meta-analysis of these trials suggested that benefits of omega-3 PUFA supplementation may be greater in a classroom setting than at home. Some evidence indicates that omega-3 PUFA may reduce symptoms of anxiety although the data is preliminary and inconclusive. The most convincing evidence for beneficial effects of omega-3 PUFA is to be found in mood disorders. A meta-analysis of trials involving patients with major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder provided evidence that omega-3 PUFA supplementation reduces symptoms of depression. Furthermore, meta-regression analysis suggests that supplementation with eicosapentaenoic acid may be more beneficial in mood disorders than with docosahexaenoic acid, although several confounding factors prevented a definitive conclusion being made regarding which species of omega-3 PUFA is most beneficial. The mechanisms underlying the apparent efficacy of

    A new application for omega-3 fatty acids has recently emerged, concerning the treatment of several mental disorders. This indication is supported by data of neurobiological research, as highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) are highly concentrated in neural phospholipids and are important components of the neuronal cell membrane. They modulate the mechanisms of brain cell signaling, including the dopaminergic and serotonergic pathways. The aim of this review is to provide a complete and updated account of the empirical evidence of the efficacy and safety that are currently available for omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. The main evidence for the effectiveness of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) has been obtained in mood disorders, in particular in the treatment of depressive symptoms in unipolar and bipolar depression. There is some evidence to support the use of omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of conditions characterized by a high level of impulsivity and aggression and borderline personality disorders. In patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, small-to-modest effects of omega-3 HUFAs have been found. The most promising results have been reported by studies using high doses of EPA or the association of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. In schizophrenia, current data are not conclusive and do not allow us either to refuse or support the indication of omega-3 fatty acids. For the remaining psychiatric disturbances, including autism spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders and substance use disorder, the data are too scarce to draw any conclusion. Concerning tolerability, several studies concluded that omega-3 can be considered safe and well tolerated at doses up to 5 g/day.

  16. Omega-3 Fatty Acid Formulations in Cardiovascular Disease: Dietary Supplements are Not Substitutes for Prescription Products.

    2016-08-01

    Omega-3 fatty acid products are available as prescription formulations (icosapent ethyl, omega-3-acid ethyl esters, omega-3-acid ethyl esters A, omega-3-carboxylic acids) and dietary supplements (predominantly fish oils). Most dietary supplements and all but one prescription formulation contain mixtures of the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Products containing both EPA and DHA may raise low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). In clinical trials, the EPA-only prescription product, icosapent ethyl, did not raise LDL-C compared with placebo. To correct a common misconception, it is important to note that omega-3 fatty acid dietary supplements are not US FDA-approved over-the-counter drugs and are not required to demonstrate safety and efficacy prior to marketing. Conversely, prescription products are supported by extensive clinical safety and efficacy investigations required for FDA approval and have active and ongoing safety monitoring programs. While omega-3 fatty acid dietary supplements may have a place in the supplementation of diet, they generally contain lower levels of EPA and DHA than prescription products and are not approved or intended to treat disease. Perhaps due to the lack of regulation of dietary supplements, EPA and DHA levels may vary widely within and between brands, and products may also contain unwanted cholesterol or fats or potentially harmful components, including toxins and oxidized fatty acids. Accordingly, omega-3 fatty acid dietary supplements should not be substituted for prescription products. Similarly, prescription products containing DHA and EPA should not be substituted for the EPA-only prescription product, as DHA may raise LDL-C and thereby complicate the management of patients with dyslipidemia.

    Obesity is associated with metabolic perturbations including liver and adipose tissue inflammation, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. Omega-6 fatty acids (ω6) promote and omega-3 fatty acids (ω3) reduce inflammation as they can be metabolized to pro- and anti-inflammatory eicosanoids, respectively. 12/15-lipoxygenase (12/15-LO) enzymatically produces some of these metabolites and is induced by high fat (HF) diet.

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA provide significant health benefits and this has led to an increased consumption as dietary supplements. Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are found in animals, transgenic plants, fungi and many microorganisms but are typically extracted from fatty fish, putting additional pressures on global fish stocks. As primary producers, many marine microalgae are rich in EPA (C20:5 and DHA (C22:6 and present a promising source of omega-3 fatty acids. Several heterotrophic microalgae have been used as biofactories for omega-3 fatty acids commercially, but a strong interest in autotrophic microalgae has emerged in recent years as microalgae are being developed as biofuel crops. This paper provides an overview of microalgal biotechnology and production platforms for the development of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. It refers to implications in current biotechnological uses of microalgae as aquaculture feed and future biofuel crops and explores potential applications of metabolic engineering and selective breeding to accumulate large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids in autotrophic microalgae.

    Evidence suggests that omega-3 fatty acids are important for a variety of mental health outcomes and have been shown to improve both mood and behaviors. However, there is little consensus on whether omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for reducing aggressive behaviors. The current study assesses the relationship between omega-3 fatty acids and aggression. A total of 73 effect sizes were calculated among 40 studies involving 7173 participants from both intervention and observational research designs. Effect sizes were separately meta-analyzed for two-group comparison studies (SMD=0.20), pre-post contrast studies (ESsg=0.62), and associational studies (r=-0.06), in the fixed-effect model. Results from the random-effects model also suggest a range of effects of omega-3 fatty acids on reducing aggression (SMD=0.24; ESsg=0.82; r=-0.09). Patterns in the relationship between omega-3s and aggression were additionally observed. Moderator analyses indicated that the effect of omega-3s on aggression is conditioned by how aggressive behaviors are measured, such as through self-report or parent/teacher surveys.

    Full Text Available Multiple sclerosis is the most common chronic disabling disease in the central nervous system in young to middle aged adults. Depression is common in multiple sclerosis (MS affecting between 50–60% of patients. Pilot studies in unipolar depression report an improvement in depression when omega-3 fatty acids are given with antidepressants. The objective of this study was to investigate whether omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, as an augmentation therapy, improves treatment-resistant major depressive disorder (MDD in people with MS. We performed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study of omega-3 fatty acids at six grams per day over three months. The primary outcome was a 50% or greater improvement on the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS. Thirty-nine participants were randomized and thirty-one completed the 3-month intervention. Improvement on MADRS between groups was not significantly different at the 3-month end point with 47.4% in the omega-3 fatty acid group and 45.5% in the placebo group showing 50% or greater improvement (p = 0.30. Omega-3 fatty acids as an augmentation therapy for treatment-resistant depression in MS was not significantly different than placebo in this pilot trial. Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation at the dose given was well-tolerated over 3 months.ClinicalTrials.gov NCT00122954.

    The possibility of extending the linear sigma-omega model by introducing a sigma-omega coupling phenomenologically is explored. It is shown that, in contrast to the usual Walecka model, not only the effective nucleon mass M* but also the effective sigma meson mass m*_sigma and the effective omega meson mass m*_omega are nucleon density dependent. When the model parameters are fitted to the nuclear saturation point (the nuclear radius constant r_0=1.14fm and volume energy a_1=16.0MeV) as well as to the effective nucleon mass M*=0.85M, the model yields m*_sigma=1.09m_sigma and m*_omega=0.90m_omega at the saturation point, and the nuclear incompressibility K_0=501MeV. The lowest value of K_0 given by this model by adjusting the model parameters is around 227MeV.

    Full Text Available Background. Recently, the importance of the gut microbiota in the pathogenesis of several disorders has gained clinical interests. Among exogenous factors affecting gut microbiome, diet appears to have the largest effect. Fatty acids, especially omega-3 polyunsaturated, ameliorate a range of several diseases, including cardiometabolic and inflammatory and cancer. Fatty acids associated beneficial effects may be mediated, to an important extent, through changes in gut microbiota composition. We sought to understand the changes of the gut microbiota in response to an omega-3 rich diet. Case Presentation. This case study investigated changes of gut microbiota with an omega-3 rich diet. Fecal samples were collected from a 45-year-old male who consumed 600 mg of omega-3 daily for 14 days. After the intervention, species diversity was decreased, but several butyrate-producing bacteria increased. There was an important decrease in Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Akkermansia spp. Gut microbiota changes were reverted after the 14-day washout. Conclusion. Some of the health-related benefits of omega-3 may be due, in part, to increases in butyrate-producing bacteria. These findings may shed light on the mechanisms explaining the effects of omega-3 in several chronic diseases and may also serve as an existing foundation for tailoring personalized medical treatments.

  8. Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Vitamin D in Cardiology

    Full Text Available Dietary modification and supplementation play an increasingly important role in the conservative treatment of cardiovascular disease. Current interest has focused on n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA and vitamin D. Clinical trial results on this subject are contradictory in many aspects. Several studies indicate that n-3 PUFA consumption improves vascular and cardiac hemodynamics, triglycerides, and possibly endothelial function, autonomic control, inflammation, thrombosis, and arrhythmia. Experimental studies show effects on membrane structure and associated functions, ion channel properties, genetic regulation, and production of anti-inflammatory mediators. Clinical trials evaluating a possible reduction in cardiovascular disease by n-3 PUFA have shown different results. Supplementation of vitamin D is common regarding prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. But vitamin D also seems to have several effects on the cardiovascular system. Vitamin D deficiency appears to be related to an increase in parathyroid hormone levels and can predispose to essential hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy, increased insulin resistance, and eventually to atherosclerosis and adverse cardiovascular events. Randomized prospective clinical trials are needed to determine whether vitamin D and omega-3 FA supplementation therapy should be recommended as a routine therapy for primary or secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.

    Objective To review the relation between dietary omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFA) and non-communicable diseases. Method Data were collected from scientific journals and conference publications, MEDLINE (1979-2002) and current content which included 68 prospective, cross-sectional, case control and dietary-intervention studies. Scientific paper selections were based on the association between ω-3 PUFA and non-communicable diseases. Results ω-3 PUFA has beneficial effects on increasing heart rate variability, decreasing the risk of stroke, reducing both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, insulin resistance and glucose metabolism. Long chain ω-3 PUFA has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities. ω-3 PUFA has also been reported to have a beneficial effect on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and schizophrenia, and may be effective in managing depression in adults. Conclusions Results from epidemiological and dietary intervention studies have shown that ω-3 PUFA represent powerfully a class of bioactive compounds and that dietary intake of ω-3 PUFA plays a critical role in human health in relation to non-communicable diseases.

    We have applied our empirical-point-spread-function-based photometric techniques on a large number of calibration-related WFC3/UVIS UV-B exposures of the core of {omega} Cen, and found a well-defined split in the bright part of the white-dwarf cooling sequence (WDCS). The redder sequence is more populated by a factor of {approx}2. We can explain the separation of the two sequences and their number ratio in terms of the He-normal and He-rich subpopulations that had been previously identified along the cluster main sequence. The blue WDCS is populated by the evolved stars of the He-normal component ({approx}0.55 M{sub Sun} CO-core DA objects), while the red WDCS hosts the end products of the He-rich population ({approx}0.46 M{sub Sun} objects, and {approx}10% CO-core and {approx}90% He-core WDs). The He-core WDs correspond to He-rich stars that missed the central He ignition, and we estimate their fraction by analyzing the population ratios along the cluster horizontal branch.

    Full Text Available Reading a Don DeLillo is like walking on glass, that is, you need hold your breath so that nothing could deter you from focusing on the mission, if you want to keep safe and mostly sound. The writer’s latest novel, Point Omega (2010, is no exception in that its author engages once more in the exercise of stripping away all surfaces so as to let us see into the terror of what he calls “makeshift reality”—his characters’ and ours. The claims I advance and substantiate in the essay, refer to (1 how a fluid chronology sustained by framing devices adds to the understanding of the construct of a novel/film in progress; (2 how the shifting narrative perspective ensures a vivisectionist’s look into the body of life/death/world. Don DeLillo’s novel is another terrifying X-ray of war/life/death as agonizing nothingness which literature in its ‘late-phase’ is meant to cure.

    We have applied our empirical-PSF-based photometric techniques on a large number of calibration-related WFC3/UVIS UV-B exposures of the core of {\\omega} Cen, and found a well-defined split in the right part of the white-dwarf cooling sequence (WDCS). The redder sequence is more populated by a factor of ~2. We can explain the separation of the two sequences and their number ratio in terms of the He-normal and He-rich subpopulations that had been previously identified along the cluster main sequence. The blue WDCS is populated by the evolved stars of the He-normal component (~0.55 Msun CO-core DA objects) while the red WDCS hosts the end-products of the He-rich population (~0.46 Msun objects, ~10% CO-core and ~90% He-core WDs). The He-core WDs correspond to He-rich stars that missed the central He-ignition, and we estimate their fraction by analyzing the population ratios along the cluster horizontal branch.

  13. Progress of LMJ-relevant implosions experiments on OMEGA

    Full Text Available In preparation of the first ignition attempts on the Laser Mégajoule (LMJ, an experimental program is being pursued on OMEGA to investigate LMJ-relevant hohlraums. First, radiation temperature levels close to 300 eV were recently achieved in reduced-scale hohlraums with modest backscatter losses. Regarding the baseline target design for fusion experiments on LMJ, an extensive experimental database has also been collected for scaled implosions experiments in both empty and gas-filled rugby-shaped hohlraums. We acquired a full picture of hohlraum energetics and implosion dynamics. Not only did the rugby hohlraums show significantly higher x-ray drive energy over the cylindrical hohlraums, but symmetry control by power balance was demonstrated, as well as high-performance D2 implosions enabling the use of a complete suite of neutrons diagnostics. Charged particle diagnostics provide complementary insights into the physics of these x-ray driven implosions. An overview of these results demonstrates our ability to control the key parameters driving the implosion, lending more confidence in extrapolations to ignition-scale targets.

    The first measurements of the beam-target-helicity-asymmetries $E$ and $G$ in the photoproduction of $\\omega$-mesons off protons at the CBELSA/TAPS experiment are reported. $E$ ($G$) was measured using circularly (linearly) polarised photons and a longitudinally polarised target. $E$ was measured over the photon energy range from close to threshold ($E_\\gamma = 1108$~MeV) to $E_\\gamma = 2300$~MeV and $G$ at a single energy interval of $1108 < E_\\gamma <1300$~MeV. Both measurements cover the full solid angle. The observables $E$ and $G$ are highly sensitive to the contribution of baryon resonances, with $E$ acting as a helicity filter in the $s$-channel. The new results indicate significant $s$-channel resonance contributions together with contributions from $t$-channel exchange processes. A partial wave analysis reveals strong contributions from the partial waves with spin-parity $J^P=3/2^+, 5/2^+$, and $3/2^-$.

    The voltages of two Eveready No. 528 batteries, one the test battery, the other the control battery, were simultaneously recorded as they were discharged across 30 omega loads using a dual chart recorder. The test battery was initially put in a freezer at -15 + or - 3 C. After its voltage had fallen to .6 V, it was brought back out into the room at 22 + or - 3 C. A second run was made with 60 omega loads. Assuming a 3.0 V cut-off, the total energy output of the test battery at -15 C was 26 WHr 30 omega and 35 WHr 60 omega, and the corresponding numbers for the control battery at 22 C were 91 WHr and 100 WHr. When the test battery was subsequently allowed to warm up, the voltage rose above 4 V and the total energy output rose to 80 WHr 30 omega and 82 WHR 60 omega.

    We present distance measurements to 71 high redshift type Ia supernovae discovered during the first year of the 5-year Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS). These events were detected and their multi-color light-curves measured using the MegaPrime/MegaCam instrument at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), by repeatedly imaging four one-square degree fields in four bands. Follow-up spectroscopy was performed at the VLT, Gemini and Keck telescopes to confirm the nature of the supernovae and to measure their redshift. With this data set, we have built a Hubble diagram extending to z = 1, with all distance measurements involving at least two bands. Systematic uncertainties are evaluated making use of the multiband photometry obtained at CFHT. Cosmological fits to this first year SNLS Hubble diagram give the following results: {Omega}{sub M} = 0.263 {+-} 0.042 (stat) {+-} 0.032 (sys) for a flat {Lambda}CDM model; and w = -1.023 {+-} 0.090 (stat) {+-} 0.054 (sys) for a flat cosmology with constant equation of state w when combined with the constraint from the recent Sloan Digital Sky Survey measurement of baryon acoustic oscillations.

    We present measurements of CP-violating asymmetries and branching fractions for the decays omegapi+, omegaK+, and omegaK0. The data sample corresponds to 232 million BBbar pairs produced by e+e- annihilation at the Upsilon(4S) resonance. For the decay omegaKs, we measure the time-dependent CP-violation parameters S=0.51+0.35-0.39+/-0.02, and C=-0.55+0.28-0.26+/-0.03. We also measure the branching fractions, in units of 10^-6, B(omegapi+)=6.1+/-0.7+/-0.4, B(omegaK+)=6.1+/-0.6+/-0.4, and B(omegaK0)=6.2+/-1.0+/-0.4, and charge asymmetries Ach(omegapi+)=-0.01+/-0.10+/-0.01 and Ach(omegaK+)=0.05+/-0.09+/-0.01.

    The removal of soluble components from an ovine hepatic microsomal preparation decreased the omega-hydroxylation of dodecanoic and hexadecanoic acids. The results suggest that one or more soluble components play a role in the microsomal omega-hydroxylation of fatty acids. The possible roles in the reaction of catalase (known to stimulate the microsomal desaturations of fatty acids and alkylglycerols) and superoxide dismutase were investigated. The addition of these enzymes to the complete (but not the washed) microsomal preparation stimulated both the initial omega-hydroxylation reaction and the subsequent dehydrogenation reactions of the omega-oxidation pathway. The similarity of the effects of catalase and superoxide dismutase and stimulation of two different steps of the
