Summary of "Pectin reduces environmental pollutant-induced obesity in mice through regulating gut microbiota: A case study of p,p'-DDE."

The prevalence of obesity has raised global concerns. Environmental pollutants are one of the main causes of obesity. Many studies have demonstrated that dietary fiber could reduce obesity induced by high-fat diets, but whether environmental pollutant-induced obesity can be reversed is still unknown.

CD1 is involved in diet-induced hypothalamic inflammation in obesity.

Obesity-associated hypothalamic inflammation plays an important role in the development of defective neuronal control of whole body energy balance. Because dietary fats are the main triggers of hypoth...

Antiobesity Effects of LMT1-48 Accompanied by Inhibition of in the Intestine of Diet-Induced Obese Mice.

The gut microbiota is the most important environmental factor that plays a role in inducing obesity. The gram-negative bacteria, strains, recently identified in obese mice are considered to be pathog...

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...

High-fat diet improves tolerance to myocardial ischemia by delaying normalization of intracellular PH at reperfusion.

Reports on the effect of obesity on the myocardial tolerance to ischemia are contradictory. We have described that obesity induced by high-fat diet (HFD) reduces infarct size in B6D2F1 mice submitted ...

Energy and metabolic pathways in trefoil factor family member 2 (Tff2) KO mice beyond the protection from high-fat diet-induced obesity.

Trefoil factor family member 2 (TFF2) is a small gut peptide. We have previously shown that Tff2 knock out (KO) mice are protected from high-fat (HF) diet-induced obesity (De Giorgio et al., 2013a). T...
