Basal metabolic rate and physical activity in the elderly

, : Basal metabolic rate and physical activity in the elderly. Nippon Eiyo Shokuryo Gakkaishi = Journal of the Japanese Society of Nutrition and Food Science 46(6): 451-458

The effect of physical activity and aerobic capacity (VO2 max) on basal metabolic rate (BMR) was studied in 10 men and 15 women, 65 to 90 years old in a home for the elderly. Mean and maximal heart rates, energy expenditure and estimated VO2 max were significantly lower in subjects >=80 years old than in subjects 65 to 79 years old. Average BMR for the 2 age groups, respectively, was 15.7+or-1.3 and 19.7+or-2.6 for men and 19.2+or-2.3 and 21.1+or-4.2 kcal/kg for women.

Increased expression of endothelin-1 (ET-1) immunoreactivity is demonstrated in the active atherosclerotic plaque. Here we show that both ETA and ETB receptors are expressed in rat vascular smooth-muscle cells (VSMCs). ET-1 binding to ETB receptor...

This paper describes a simple method for the preparation and characterization of protein density gradients on solid supports. The method employs colloidal metal nanoparticles as protein carriers and optical tags and is capable of forming linear, e...
