At one end of the continuum are small endotherms that seemingly are continuously digesting to maintain their high metabolic rates, whereas at the opposite end of...

    The article focuses on the course of murine experimental colitis which is not affected by genetic deletion of dectin-1. Dectin-1 mediates cytokine responses and skewing of the adaptive immune system. It may also be involved in inflammatory bowel diseases' (IBD) pathology. The study comprised of...

    Background: Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), in particular the long chain marine fatty acids docosahexaenoic (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic (EPA), are linked to many health benefits in humans and in animal models. Little is known of the molecular response to DHA and EPA of the small...
