cambogia extract caused an upregulation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor activity and an upregulation of the level of HMG-CoA reductase resulting in decreased cholesterol synthesis. 11 Flavonoids from the plant reduced lipid levels in normal and hypercholesterolemic rats. 7 Reductions were also documented in triglycerides, phospholipids, and free fatty acids. The mechanism of action for the flavonoids may involve: (1) reducing the rate of lipogenesis by reducing the activities of lipogenic enzymes, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase.
Higher levels in water can indicate contamination whether from human or animal waste, fertilizers, septic tanks, decaying plants, sewage disposal systems and erosion of natural deposits (WHO, 2007). Excessive nitrate levels in drinking water can cause methemoglobinemia or blue-baby syndrome a condition in infants which the blood has diminished ability to take of oxygen, potentially causing brain damage or death (Beatson, 1978; Fan and Steinberg, 1996). Infants may suffer from acute nitrite toxicity if they are fed formula prepared from water containing high (>10 ppm) nitrates (Self and Qwaskom, 1998). Others at risk from excess nitrates in drinking water are pregnant women, individuals with reduced gastric acidity and persons with genetically controlled deficiencies of the enzymes glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase.
1. Optimum conditions were established for determining the activities of the NADP(+)-linked enzymes, glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase and isocitrate dehydrogenase, in mosquito tissues. 2. The activity of each dehydrogenase was determined in samples of mosquitoes of different ages throughout the life-span. The specific-activity curves attained maximal values in the pupal or early adult period.
