Summary of "Sarcopoterium spinosum extract improved insulin sensitivity in mice models of glucose intolerance and diabetes."

The glucose lowering properties of Sarcopoterium spinosum, a traditional medicinal plant, were previously validated by us using KK-Ay mice as a genetic model for type 2 diabetes (T2D).

Uncaria tomentosa improves insulin sensitivity and inflammation in experimental NAFLD.

We investigated the effect of the crude herbal extract from Uncaria tomentosa (UT) on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in two models of obesity: high fat diet (HFD) and genetically obese (ob/...

Nardostachys jatamansi DC Extract Alleviates Insulin Resistance and Regulates Glucose Metabolism in C57BL/KsJ-db/db Mice Through the AMP-Activated Protein Kinase Signaling Pathway.

This study investigated whether Nardostachys jatamansi DC extract (NJE) improved insulin sensitivity and suppressed hepatic glucose production in an animal model of type 2 diabetes. C57BL/KsJ-db/db mi...

Tpcn2 knock-out mice have improved insulin sensitivity and are protected against high-fat diet induced weight gain.

Type 2 diabetes is a complex disorder affected by multiple genes and the environment. Our laboratory has shown that in response to a glucose challenge, two-pore channel 2 (Tpcn2) knock-out mice exhibi...

Metabolic effects of short-term caloric restriction in mice with reduced insulin gene dosage.

Caloric restriction (CR) is the only environmental intervention with robust evidence that it extends lifespan and delays the symptoms of ageing, but its mechanisms are incompletely understood. Based o...

Autophagy Differentially Regulates Insulin Production and Insulin Sensitivity.

Autophagy, a stress-induced lysosomal degradative pathway, has been assumed to exert similar metabolic effects in different organs. Here, we establish a model where autophagy plays different roles in ...

Clinical Trial With Broccoli Sprout Extract to Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) results from a combination of insufficient insulin secretion from pancreatic islets and insulin resistance of target cells. The investigators have extensive pre-clini...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

Mice homozygous for the mutant autosomal recessive gene "scid" which is located on the centromeric end of chromosome 16. These mice lack mature, functional lymphocytes and are thus highly susceptible to lethal opportunistic infections if not chronically treated with antibiotics. The lack of B- and T-cell immunity resembles severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) syndrome in human infants. SCID mice are useful as animal models since they are receptive to implantation of a human immune system producing SCID-human (SCID-hu) hematochimeric mice.

Mutant mice exhibiting a marked obesity coupled with overeating, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, marked insulin resistance, and infertility when in a homozygous state. They may be inbred or hybrid.

A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)

A strain of non-obese diabetic mice developed in Japan that has been widely studied as a model for T-cell-dependent autoimmune insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus in which insulitis is a major histopathologic feature, and in which genetic susceptibility is strongly MHC-linked.
