Loss of the tumor suppressor gene AIP mediates the browning of human brown fat tumors.

Human brown fat tumors (hibernomas) display concomitant loss of the tumor suppressor genes MEN1 and AIP. In the present study, we hypothesized that the brown fat phenotype is attributed to these mutations. Accordingly, we demonstrate that silencing of AIP in human brown preadipocytic and white fat cell lines results in the induction of the brown fat marker UCP1. In human adipocytic tumors, loss of MEN1 was found both in white (one out of 51 lipomas) and brown fat tumors. In contrast, concurrent loss of AIP ...

Cross-Domain Shoe Retrieval with a Semantic Hierarchy of Attribute Classification Network.

Cross-domain shoe image retrieval is a challenging problem, because the query photo from the street domain (daily life scenario) and the reference photo in the online domain (online shop images) have significant visual differences due to the viewpoint and scale variation, self-occlusion, and cluttered background. This paper proposes the Semantic Hierarchy Of attributE Convolutional Neural Network (SHOE-CNN) with a three-level feature representation for discriminative shoe feature expression and efficient re...

Effects of flexible and rigid rocker profiles on in-shoe pressure.

Rocker profiles are commonly used in the prevention of diabetic foot ulcers. Rockers are mostly stiffened to restrict toe plantarflexion to ensure proper offloading. It is also described that toe dorsiflexion should be restricted. However, the difference in effect on plantar pressure between rigid rockers that restrict this motion and flexible rockers that do not is unknown. In-shoe plantar pressure data were collected for a control shoe and the same shoe with rigid and flexible rockers with the apex positi...

NFIA co-localizes with PPARγ and transcriptionally controls the brown fat gene program.

Brown fat dissipates energy as heat and protects against obesity. Here, we identified nuclear factor I-A (NFIA) as a transcriptional regulator of brown fat by a genome-wide open chromatin analysis of murine brown and white fat followed by motif analysis of brown-fat-specific open chromatin regions. NFIA and the master transcriptional regulator of adipogenesis, PPARγ, co-localize at the brown-fat-specific enhancers. Moreover, the binding of NFIA precedes and facilitates the binding of PPARγ, leading to inc...

Effect of Shoes on Stiffness and Energy Efficiency of Ankle-Foot Orthosis: Bench Testing Analysis.

Understanding the mechanical properties of ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) is important to maximize their benefit for those with movement disorders during gait. Though mechanical properties such as stiffness and/or energy efficiency of AFOs have been extensively studied, it remains unknown how and to what extent shoes influence their properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of shoes on stiffness and energy efficiency of an AFO using a custom mechanical testing device. Stiffness and energy ...

Out of southern East Asia of the brown rat revealed by large scale genome sequencing.

The geographic origin and migration of the brown rat (Rattus norvegicus) remain subjects of considerable debate. In this study, we sequenced whole genomes of 110 wild brown rats with a diverse world-wide representation. We reveal that brown rats migrated out of southern East Asia, rather than northern Asia as formerly suggested, into the Middle East and then to Europe and Africa, thousands of years ago. Comparison of genomes from different geographical populations reveals that many genes involved in the imm...

Comparison of plantar pressure distribution between three different shoes and three common movements in futsal.

Analysis of in-shoe pressure distribution during sport-specific movements may provide a clue to improve shoe design and prevent injuries. This study compared the mean and the peak pressures over the whole foot and ten separate areas of the foot, wearing different shoes during specific movements.

Brown and brite adipocytes: Same function, but different origin and response.

Inducing brown adipocytes in white adipose tissues is a promising target to combat obesity and its related disorders in human beings. This goal has been especially encouraged by new important discoveries of human brown adipose tissues. The accumulating evidence confirms the presence of active brown adipocytes, not only in newborns, but also in adult humans. In rodents, there are two populations of the Ucp1-expressing adipocytes with well characterized-thermogenic functions, classical interscapular brown adi...

What Ignites UCP1?

We thought we knew how the heat-producing uncoupling protein 1 in brown adipose tissue was activated: by fatty acids released upon lipid droplet breakdown in the brown adipocytes. However, two studies in this issue (Schreiber et al., 2017; Shin et al., 2017) imply that this classical model may not be valid: heat can be produced in brown fat without intracellular lipolysis.

Shod versus barefoot effects on force and power development during a conventional deadlift.

The kinetics of a conventional deadlift in shod (S) versus unshod (US) footwear conditions in 10 male participants (mean ± SD, age = 27.0 ± 5.8 years; weight = 78.7 ± 11.5 kg; height = 175.8 ± 8.2 cm; 1RM deadlift = 155.8 ± 25.8 kg) was assessed in two testing sessions. A counterbalanced, crossover experimental design was used with different loads (60% and 80% 1RM). Four sets of four repetitions were prescribed per session with two sets per shoe and with each shoe condition involving one set per load. ...

Shoe-Floor Interactions in Human Walking with Slips: Modeling and Experiments.

Shoe-floor interactions play a crucial role in determining the possibility of potential slip and fall during human walking. Biomechanical and tribological parameters influence the friction characteristics between the shoe sole and the floor and the existing work mainly focus on experimental studies. In this paper, we present modeling, analysis, and experiments to understand slip and force distributions between the shoe sole and floor surface during human walking. We present results for both soft and hard so...

Hanbury Brown-Twiss effect without two-photon interference in photon counting regime.

From quantum point of view, Hanbury Brown-Twiss effect is a result of constructive-destructive two-photon interference. There should be no Hanbury Brown-Twiss effect if there was no two-photon interference. In this paper, we observed Hanbury Brown- Twiss effect in a specially designed experiment, in which two-photon interference is impossible by keeping only one two-photon probability amplitude in the experimental scheme. However, our experimental results can still be interpreted by Glauber's quantum optica...

Characterization of Brown Adipose-Like Tissue in Trauma-Induced Heterotopic Ossification in Humans.

Heterotopic ossification (HO), the abnormal formation of bone within soft tissues, is a major complication after severe trauma or amputation. Transient brown adipocytes have been shown to be a critical regulator of this process in a mouse model of HO. In this study, we evaluated the presence of brown fat within human HO lesions. Most of the excised tissue samples displayed histological characteristics of bone, fibroproliferative cells, blood vessels, and adipose tissue. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed...

Habitual Minimalist Shod Running Biomechanics and the Acute Response to Running Barefoot.

The aim of the study was to determine whether habitual minimalist shoe runners present with purported favorable running biomechanithat reduce running injury risk such as initial loading rate. Eighteen minimalist and 16 traditionally cushioned shod runners were assessed when running both in their preferred training shoe and barefoot. Ankle and knee joint kinetics and kinematics, initial rate of loading, and footstrike angle were measured. Sagittal ankle and knee joint stiffness were also calculated. Results ...

Influence of anterior load carriage on lumbar muscle activation while walking in stable and unstable shoes.

Load carriage can be harmful for workers, and alternative interventions to reduce back pain while walking and carrying loads are necessary. Unstable shoes have been used to improve balance and reduce back pain, but it is unknown whether walking wearing unstable shoes while carrying loads anteriorly causes excessive trunk extensors muscle activation. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different shoe types and anterior load carriage on gait kinematics and lumbar electromyographic (EMG) ac...

18F-FDG PET/CT of Brown Adipose Tissue Hyperactivation Associated With Pregnancy and Paraganglioma.

This 32-year-old woman presented with pregnancy-related arterial hypertension unresponsive to antihypertensive therapy. During cesarean delivery, a lobulated retroperitoneal mass was discovered. F-FDG PET/CT performed 18 days postpartum demonstrated the hyperactive retroperitoneal mass and extensive hyperactivated brown adipose tissue. The mass was surgically removed, revealing a para-aortic multicentric paraganglioma. After surgery, blood pressure normalized, and serum chromogranin A and urinary metanephri...

The effect of eliminating leg length difference on plantar foot pressure distribution in patients wearing forefoot offloading shoe.

Elevated heel construction offloads the forefoot after surgery. However, side-to-side height difference alters limb kinetics, whereas leg-length equalizing-sole at non-operated side may have beneficial effects on foot loading. The purpose of this study was to characterize leg-length equalizing sole effect on bilateral plantar pressures when using heel-lift forefoot-offloading shoe.

Metabolic regulation and the anti-obesity perspectives of human brown fat.

Activation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in adult humans increase glucose and fatty acid clearance as well as resting metabolic rate, whereas a prolonged elevation of BAT activity improves insulin sensitivity. However, substantial reductions in body weight following BAT activation has not yet been shown in humans. This observation raise the possibility for feedback mechanisms in adult humans in terms of a brown fat-brain crosstalk, possibly mediated by batokines, factors produced by and secreted from brown ...

Histone deacetylase 3 prepares brown adipose tissue for acute thermogenic challenge.

Brown adipose tissue is a thermogenic organ that dissipates chemical energy as heat to protect animals against hypothermia and to counteract metabolic disease. However, the transcriptional mechanisms that determine the thermogenic capacity of brown adipose tissue before environmental cold are unknown. Here we show that histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3) is required to activate brown adipose tissue enhancers to ensure thermogenic aptitude. Mice with brown adipose tissue-specific genetic ablation of HDAC3 become s...

Sharing is Caring: The Case for Company-Level Collaboration in Pharmacoeconomic Modelling.

Obesity Alters B Cell and Macrophage Populations in Brown Adipose Tissue.

The prevalence of obesity continues to rise, and it is understood that regulation of white adipose tissue (WAT) function is important to systemic metabolic homeostasis. Immune cells play a central role in the maintenance of WAT, and their compositions change in number and inflammatory phenotype with the progression of obesity. Because of its energy-burning capabilities, brown adipose tissue (BAT) has become a focus of obesity research. Although novel studies have focused on the function of brown adipocytes ...
