Original Source: Expression of human chemerin induces insulin resistance in the skeletal muscle but does not affect weight, lipid levels and atherosclerosis in LDL receptor knockout mice on high fat diet.

AbstractObjective. Chemerin is a recently discovered hepatoadipokine that regulates adipocyte differentiation as well as chemotaxis and activation of dendritic cells and macrophages. Chemerin was reported to modulate insulin sensitivity in adipocytes and skeletal muscle cells in vitro and to exacerbate glucose intolerance in several mouse models in vivo. In humans, chemerin was shown to be associated with multiple components of the metabolic syndrome including body mass index, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol...

CD30 Antibodies

CD30, also known as TNFRSF8, is a cell membrane protein of the tumor necrosis factor receptor family and tumor marker. This receptor is expressed by activated, but not by resting, T and B cells. It ...

Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer represents only 1 per cent of all cancers in men, but it is the single biggest cause of cancer-related deaths in men aged 15-35 years in the UK. The causes of testicular cancer and...

Polo like kinase Plk 1

Polo-like kinase (Plk) is an important cell cycle regulatory kinase that has been implicated in a multitude of cell cycle events. Plks form a family of four different proteins that regulates many as...

Sphingosine 1 Phosphate S1P

Sphingosine-1-phospate (S1P) is a phospholipid released by platelets, mast and other cells. It is now known that S1P stimulates at least five different G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs): S1P1, S1P2,...

Glioblastoma: Cancer stem cell knockout

Ablation of cancer stem cells in established glioblastomas in mice by knockout of the nuclear receptor tailless (Tlx) has therapeutic benefit, and TLX may have a similar role in human glioblastoma ste...

A somatosensory circuit for cooling perception in mice

The authors devised a new behavioral task to study cooling perception in head-fixed mice. Using whole-cell recordings from layer 2/3 neurons in the somatosensory cortex, they reveal that the same neur...

Jagunal homolog 1 is a critical regulator of neutrophil function in fungal host defense

Josef Penninger and colleagues generate mice with conditional knockout of Jagn1 in hematopoietic cells. They show that the mice have a defective neutrophil-mediated immune response to Candida albicans...

RIPK1 ensures intestinal homeostasis by protecting the epithelium against apoptosis

Receptor interacting protein kinase 1 (RIPK1) has an essential role in the signalling triggered by death receptors and pattern recognition receptors. RIPK1 is believed to function as a node driving NF...

RIPK1 maintains epithelial homeostasis by inhibiting apoptosis and necroptosis

Necroptosis has emerged as an important pathway of programmed cell death in embryonic development, tissue homeostasis, immunity and inflammation. RIPK1 is implicated in inflammatory and cell death sig...

ABCB5 is a limbal stem cell gene required for corneal development and repair

Corneal epithelial homeostasis and regeneration are sustained by limbal stem cells (LSCs), and LSC deficiency is a major cause of blindness worldwide. Transplantation is often the only therapeutic opt...

Mfsd2a is a transporter for the essential omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for normal brain growth and cognitive function. Consistent with its importance in the brain, DHA is highly enriched in brain phosp...

Aberrant production of IL-13 by T cells promotes exocrinopathy in Id3 knockout mice.

Elevated levels of the cytokine IL-13 has been found to be associated with autoimmune diseases, including Sjögren's Syndrome. However, whether IL-13 plays a causative role in disease development is n...

The Roles of P2Y2 Purinergic Receptors in Osteoblasts and Mechanotransduction.
