Effects of dietary tyrosine on serum cholesterol fractions in rats

The present study was undertaken to measure the effects of dietary tyrosine added to rat diet on serum cholesterol levels in the rat. A total of twenty Wistar strain albino rats were fed with different doses of tyrosine enriched diets containing 0.8 g/100 g, 1.0 g/100 g and 1.2 g/100 g. After 3 weeks of experimental feeding, there was significant increase (p<0.05) in total postprandial serum cholesterol of rats fed...

Antidenaturation and antioxidative properties of phytochemical components from Spondias mombin

The antidenaturation and antioxidant properties of Spondias mombin Linn (Anacardiaceae) methanol leaf extract (SMC) and fractions prepared from it were evaluated in this study. SMC and its fractions: ether (SME), saponin-rich (SMS) and flavonoid-rich (SMF) were phytochemically screened and evaluated for total antioxidant activity (TAA), ability to inhibit deoxyribose degradation (DEO), lipid peroxidation inhibitory...
