Mucus production and hypersecretion are important pathophysiological features of asthma. Airway mucus secretion is more serious in obese asthma. Therefore, it is of great significance to elucidate the mechanism of asthma airway mucus high secretion in improving the control of asthma and the prognosis of obese asthmatic patients.

Mucins, which play important roles on the ocular surface in wettability, lubrication, and barrier function, are classified into two categories: secreted mucins and membrane-associated mucins. The most...
Danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) play a proinflammatory role in the pathogenesis of airway obstructive diseases such as severe asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The NLRP3 i...
The aims of this study were to evaluate the effects of p62/SQSTM1 expression levels on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced mucus secretion in BEAS-2B bronchial epithelial cells by measuring expression le...
Obesity may lead to male hypogonadism, the underlying mechanism of which remains unclear. In the present study, we established a murine model of male hypogonadism caused by high-fat diet-induced obesi...
Neutrophil elastase and myeloperoxidase enzymes have been implicated in high-fat diet-induced obesity, insulin resistance (IR) and atherosclerosis in animal models. The aim of the present study was to...
The enteroendocrine system is composed from different cells along the different parts of the gastrointestinal tract, secreting diverse hormones and bariatric surgery alters intestinal horm...
Obesity is a chronic disease of multifactorial etiology that develops from the interaction of the influence of nutritive , metabolic , cellular and molecular psychological factors. Tadala...
Induction of insulin secretion by kisspeptin is observed in mouse, pig, rat, and human islets in vitro and in rats, mice and monkeys in vivo, but its mechanism is not fully clear. The pres...
The role of gut hormone (GLP-1, GIP, PYY...) in glucose homeostasis has been widely demonstrated. Furthermore modifications in their pattern of secretion seem to be involved in the improve...
Obesity is common in African-American patients with newly diagnosed diabetes who present with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).1 Despite the presentation with severe symptoms of insulinopenia a...
An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese).

Two populations of Zucker rats have been cited in research--the "fatty" or obese and the lean. The "fatty" rat (Rattus norvegicus) appeared as a spontaneous mutant. The obese condition appears to be due to a single recessive gene.
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).
A functional relationship between psychological phenomena of such nature that the presence of one tends to evoke the other; also, the process by which such a relationship is established.
Multiprotein transmembrane complexes in GRAM-NEGATIVE BACTERIA involved in either the secretion of effector proteins from the bacterial cytoplasm into host cells, or the secretion and assembly of flagellar components. The major component of the T3SSs is called the injectosome or needle complex.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
