    • Acute food restriction increases collagen breakdown and phagocytosis by mature decidual cells of mice 

      Spadacci-Morena, D. D.; Katz, S. G. (Churchill Livingstone, 2001-06-01)
      An ultrastructural study was undertaken on antimesometrial mature decidual tissue of fed and food-restricted mice, on day 9 of pregnancy. the mean ad libitum food intake was established on mice from the 8th till the 9th ...

    • Distribution of energy between food-restricted dams and offspring 

      Luz, J.; Griggio, Mauro Antonio [UNIFESP] (Karger, 1996-05-01)
      Pregnant and nonpregnant rats were subjected to one of four food intake schedules: ad libitum, 20, 40 and 60% of food restriction, during 20 days, with the objective of studying the distribution of energy between food-restricted ...

    • Effects of ageing on the energy balance of food-restricted rats 

      Passadore, M. D.; Griggio, Mauro Antonio [UNIFESP]; Nunes, M. T.; Luz, J. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2004-06-01)
      Aims: Age can alter energy balance by decreasing the resting metabolic rate. Food restriction can also change energy balance by decreasing energy expenditure as a mechanism of energy conservation. We investigated the ...

    • Food restriction does not impair myocardial mechanics during the healing period of myocardial infarction in the rat 

      Peron, APDON; Saraiva, R. M.; Antonio, E. L.; Andriolo, A.; Tucci, PJF (Elsevier B.V., 2005-12-01)
      Papillary muscle mechanics were studied in 4 groups of rats: control (C) noninfarcted (n = 9), C infarcted (n = 9), food-restricted (FR) noninfarcted (n = 8) and FR infarcted (n = 9). Food-restricted animals were fed with ...

    • Intrauterine food restriction as a determinant of nephrosclerosis 

      Lucas, SRR; Miraglia, S. M.; Gil, F. Z.; Coimbra, T. M. (W B Saunders Co, 2001-03-01)
      We previously showed that 8-month-old rats subjected to a 50% intrauterine food restriction had a decreased number of nephrons with increased glomerular diameter, which suggests compensatory hypertrophy, Hypertrophy could ...
