Global Tudor-SN transgenic mice are protected from obesity-induced hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance.

In the current study, we explored the impact of Tudor-staphylococcal nuclease (SN) on obesity induced by a high-fat diet (HFD) in mice, because the functional involvement of Tudor-SN in lipid metabolism in vivo is unknown. HFD-transgenic (Tg) mice exhibited reductions in hepatic steatosis and systemic insulin resistance. There was no difference in hepatic lipid accumulation between chow-fed wild-t...

In vivo monitoring of intracellular Ca dynamics in the pancreatic β-cells of zebrafish embryos.

Assessing the response of pancreatic islet cells to glucose stimulation is important for understanding β-cell function. Zebrafish are a promising model for studies of metabolism in general, including stimulus-secretion coupling in the pancreas. We used transgenic zebrafish embryos expressing a genetically-encoded Ca sensor in pancreatic β-cells to monitor a key step in glucose induced insulin se...

Diet and prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus: beyond weight loss and exercise.

Insulin resistance (IR) and pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction are core pathophysiologic features of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Select lifestyle and pharmacologic interventions, including weight loss, physical activity, a Mediterranean diet intervention, and hypoglycemic agents, have been shown to prevent or delay T2DM. However, dietary factors other than weight loss may also impact risk, main...

Not performing an OGTT results in underdiagnosis, inadequate risk assessment and probable cost increases of (pre)diabetes in Han Chinese over 40 years: a population based prospective cohort study.

Screening for (pre)diabetes is recommended in China using fasting blood glucose as routine strategy currently but not oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in high-risk population. We aimed to explore the impact by not performing an OGTT in Han Chinese over 40 years. 6682 participants were included in the prospective cohort study followed up for 3 years. Fasting plasma glucose (FPG), 2-h post-load pl...

E4orf1: A protein for enhancing glucose uptake despite impaired proximal insulin signaling.

Type 2 diabetes is often linked with impaired proximal insulin signaling. Hence, a therapeutic agent that enhances cellular glucose uptake without requiring proximal insulin signaling would be desirable for improving glycemic control. The E4orf1 peptide (E4) derived from human adenovirus 36 (Ad36) promotes cellular glucose uptake in vitro and in vivo, independent of insulin. E4 bypasses a part of ...

The self-care dilemma of type 2 diabetic patients: The mechanism of self-regulation resource depletion.

Self-care is important for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients' disease prognosis, but there is a common phenomenon of self-regulation failure in T2DMs. In order to figure this problem out, the current study explored the interaction between self-regulation resource depletion and diabetes self-care based on the limited resource model of self-regulation. 104 patients were surveyed using the Sel...

Acute effects of zinc and insulin on arcuate anorexigenic Proopiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons.

Acute insulin administration results in a hyperpolarization and concomitant decrease of firing rate in a subpopulation of arcuate Proopiomelanocortin (POMC) and Neuropeptide Y/Agouti-related peptide (NPY/AgRP) cells. This rapid effect on cellular activity has been implicated as a cellular correlate of insulin effects on energy balance and glucose homeostasis. Recent evidence suggests that zinc in ...

Intensive versus standard multifactorial cardiovascular risk factor control in screen-detected type 2 diabetes: 5 year and longer-term modelled outcomes of the ADDITION-Leicester study.

Diabetes treatment algorithms recommend intensive intervention in those with a shorter duration of disease. Screening provides opportunities for earlier multifactorial cardiovascular risk factor control. Using data from the ADDITION-Leicester study (NCT00318032), we estimated the effects of this approach on modelled risk of diabetes related complications in screen-detected patients.

Geospatial Analysis of Birth Records to Target Programming for Mothers With Gestational Diabetes Mellitus in Michigan, 2013.

The objective of this study was to use birth records and a combination of statistical and geographic information system (GIS) analyses to evaluate GDM rates among subgroups of pregnant women in Michigan.

Novel metabolic disorders in skeletal muscle of Lipodystrophic Bscl2/Seipin deficient mice.

Bscl2 mice recapitulate many of the major metabolic manifestations in Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy type 2 (BSCL2) individuals, including lipodystrophy, hepatosteatosis, muscular hypertrophy, and insulin resistance. Metabolic defects in Bscl2 mice with regard to glucose and lipid metabolism in skeletal muscle have never been investigated. Here, we identified Bscl2 mice displayed reduc...

5- lipoxygenase (ALOX5): genetic susceptibility to type 2 diabetes and vitamin D effects on monocytes.

The arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase (ALOX5) pathway has been implicated in chronic inflammatory disease which may be influenced by vitamin D due to vitamin D response elements (VDRE). We investigated an ALOX5 polymorphism (rs4987105) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and the in vitro effects of calcitriol (1,25(OH)D) on ALOX5 metabolism in monocytes of T2D patients and healthy controls (HC). 533 ...


Cancer cachexia is a multifactorial syndrome that develops during malignant tumor growth. Changes in plasma levels of several hormones and inflammatory factors result in an intense catabolic state, decreased activity of anabolic pathways, anorexia, and marked weight loss, leading to cachexia development and/or accentuation. Inflammatory mediators appear to be related to the control of a highly reg...
