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/...

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 ...

Angiotensin-(1-7) Contributes to Insulin-Sensitizing Effects of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibition in Obese Mice.

Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors reduce body weight, lower blood pressure (BP), and improve insulin sensitivity in animal models of cardiometabolic syndrome. These effects are generally ...

Leptin Signaling in the Arcuate Nucleus Reduces Insulin's Capacity to Suppress Hepatic Glucose Production in Obese Mice.

Insulin action in the hypothalamus results in the suppression of hepatic glucose production (HGP). Obesity is often associated with a diminished response to insulin, leading to impaired suppression of...

Suppression of prolactin secretion partially explains the anti-diabetic effect of bromocriptine in ob/ob mice.

Previous studies have shown that bromocriptine mesylate (Bromo) lowers blood glucose levels in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, the mechanism of action of the anti-diabetic effects of Br...

Clinical Trials [7311 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

The Effect of an Acute Increase in Plasma IL-6 on Glucose Tolerance When a Meal is Administered Intraduodenally

The aim of the study is to investigate and clarify whether the effect of IL-6 on glucose tolerance and insulin secretion are secondary to the changes in gastric emptying. The literature p...

Effect of Dapagliflozin on Insulin Secretion and Insulin Sensitivity in Patients With Prediabetes

Prediabetes is a term that refers to alterations in glucose homeostasis, including impaired fasting glucose (IFG), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or both, involving a higher risk of prog...

A Longitudinal Study on Short-term Effects of Gastric Bypass on Glucose Homeostasis in Obesity

The purpose of this study is to quantify the relative contribution of improved insulin sensitivity and improved insulin secretion to the glycaemic effect of bariatric surgery.

Effect of Berberine Versus Metformin on Glycemic Control, Insulin Sensitivity and Insulin Secretion in Prediabetes

Pre diabetes (PD) is a term that refers to alterations in glucose homeostasis, including impaired fasting glucose (IFG), Imparied glucose tolerance (IGT) or both, involving a higher risk t...

2-A-Day Study: Twice a Day Meals Study.

Caloric restriction increases lifespan and/or healthspan across multiple species. However implementation of long-term CR in humans is problematic and unacceptable to many individuals. As a...

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.

Strains of mice that contain genetic disruptions (knockout) of APOLIPOPROTEINS E genes. They are used as models for ATHEROSCLEROSIS research.

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)
