      Association between dietary phylloquinone intake and peripheral metabolic risk markers related to insulin resistance and diabetes in elderly subjects at high cardiovascular risk 

      Juanola Falgarona, Martí; Salas Salvado, Jordi; Estruch, Ramón; Portillo Baquedano, María Puy; Casas, Rosa; Miranda Gómez, Jonatan; Martínez González, Miguel Ángel; Bullo, Mónica (BioMed Central, 2013-01)
      Background: Vitamin K has been related to glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity and diabetes. Because inflammation underlies all these metabolic conditions, it is plausible that the potential role of vitamin K in glucose ...

      Composition and conservation of the mRNA-degrading machinery in bacteria 

      Kaberdin, Vladimir; Singh, Dharam; Lin-Chao, Sue (BioMed Central, 2011)
      RNA synthesis and decay counteract each other and therefore inversely regulate gene expression in pro- and eukaryotic cells by controlling the steady-state level of individual transcripts. Genetic and biochemical data ...

      High fat diet-induced non alcoholic fatty liver disease in rats is associated with hyperhomocysteinemia caused by down regulation of the transsulphuration pathway 

      Bravo, Elena; Palleschi, Simonetta; Aspichueta Celaá, Patricia; Buqué García, Xabier; Rossi, Bárbara; Cano San José, Ainara; Napolitano, Mariarosaria; Ochoa Olascoaga, Begoña; Botham, Kathleen M. (BioMed Central, 2011)
      Background Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) causes increased oxidative stress and is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Oxidative stress is now believed to be a major contributory factor in the development ...
