      El estrés en académicos/as es un problema a nivel global altamente complejo. En este contexto, el presente estudio compara la carga laboral académica de hombres y mujeres determinando si existe asociación significativa ...
    • Dovale-Rosabal, Gretel; Rodríguez, Alicia; Contreras, Elyzabeth; Ortiz-Viedma, Jaime; Muñoz, Marlys; Trigo, Marcos; Aubourg, Santiago P.; Espinosa, Alejandra (MDPI AG, 2019)
      This research focused on obtaining eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5 n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6 n-3) (EPA+DHA) concentrates from refined commercial salmon oil (RCSO). Independent variables of the complexation ...

      Dietary intake of eicosapentaenoic/docosahexaenoic acid (EPA/DHA) reduces insulin resistance and hepatic manifestations through the regulation of metabolism in the liver. Obese mice present insulin resistance and lipid ...
    • Illesca, Paola; Valenzuela, Rodrigo; Espinosa, Alejandra; Echeverría, Francisca; Soto Alarcón, Sandra A.; Ortiz, Macarena; Videla Cabrera, Luis (Elsevier Masson SAS, 2019)
      © 2018 The Authors Background: White adipose tissue (WAT) have a relevant metabolic and inflammatory function, in overweight or obesity conditions. In this regard, the WAT under over feeding nutrition present a significant ...

      Chronic high-fat diet feeding is associated with obesity and accumulation of fat in the liver, leading to the development of insulin resistance and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. This condition is characterized by the ...
    • Illesca, Paola; Valenzuela Báez, Rodrigo; Espinosa, Alejandra; Echeverría González, Francisca; Soto Alarcón, Sandra; Campos, Cristian; Rodríguez, Alicia; Vargas, Romina; Magrone, Thea; Videla Cabrera, Luis Alaberto (MDPI, 2020)
      Objective: Obesity induced by high-fat diet (HFD) elicits white adipose tissue dysfunction. In this study, we have hypothesized that the metabolic modulator eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) combined with the antioxidant ...
    • Illesca, Paola; Valenzuela, Rodrigo; Espinosa, Alejandra; Echeverría, Francisca; Soto Alarcón, Sandra A.; Ortiz, Macarena; Campos, Cristian; Vargas, Romina; Videla Cabrera, Luis (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020)
      Background: Nutritional interventions are promising tools for the prevention of obesity. The n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 LCPUFA) docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) modulates immune and metabolic responses while ...
    • Rincón Cervera, Miguel Ángel; Valenzuela Báez, Rodrigo; Hernández Rodas, María Catalina; Barrera Ramírez, Cynthia; Espinosa, Alejandra; Marambio, Macarena; Valenzuela Bonomo, Carlos (2016)
      Alpha-linolenic acid (C18:3 n-3, ALA) is an essential fatty acid and the metabolic precursor of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) from the n-3 family with relevant physiological and metabolic roles: ...
