    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

In this thesis the literature about the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis has been reviewed. The various risk indicators for atherosclerosis are discussed and related to the theory about atherogenesis. A review of the influence of milk fat constituents and dietary proteins on serum lipids and atherosclerosis is presented. Experimental results obtained with rabbits fed on semi-synthetic diets are reported. It is shown that large amounts of butyric acid have the same effect on blood, liver and tissue lipids and fatty acids as starch. Hypercholesterolemic affects of butter oil can be mainly ascribed to its cholesterol content. The hypercholesterolemic effects of semi-synthetic diets containing saturated fats can be mainly ascribed to the use of casein as protein source. The hypercholesterolemia induced by semisynthetic diets is shown to be the consequence of decreased faecal steroid excretion. It is suggested that the different serum cholesterol levels induced by various dietary proteins are due to a redistribution of serum cholesterol to other body compartments.
