VLDL-triglyceride Kinetics in Type 2 Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:17:06 | BioPortfolio


Type 2 diabetes is associated with diabetic dyslipidemia, which is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease. Triglycerides (TG) and cholesterol are transported in the system of lipoproteins, and the metabolism of these lipids in plasma is closely interrelated. Evidence suggests that increased concentration of very low-density lipoprotein triglyceride (VLDL-TG) is a central pathophysiological feature of the lipid and lipoprotein abnormalities in diabetic dyslipidemia.

The objective of this study was to investigate VLDL-TG kinetics and aspects of peripheral VLDL-TG metabolism, i.e. to what extent VLDL-TG associated fatty acids (FA) are oxidized or deposited in regional adipose tissue, in subjects with type 2 diabetes and healthy controls in the postabsorptive state and during acute hyperinsulinemia using ex-vivo labeled VLDL-TG tracers.

Effect of Adiposity on Hepatic and Peripheral Insulin Resistance in Type 1 Diabetes

The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of adiposity on resistance to insulin's ability to suppress hepatic glucose production and to stimulate peripheral glucose metabolism in ...

The studies proposed in this application seek to use non-invasive techniques to examine the impact of repeated hypoglycemia on the brain.

Pathogenesis of Youth Onset Type 2 Diabetes and Prediabetes

Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) in obese youth is often preceded by a prediabetic state called: Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT), which is associated with a pre-existing defect in insulin secretion....

Effects of aging and insulin resistant states on protein anabolic responses in older adults.

Insulin is the principal postprandial anabolic hormone and resistance to its action could contribute to sarcopenia. We developed different types of hyperinsulinemic clamp protocols to measure glucose ...

Glucose homeostasis in statin users - the LIFESTAT study.

Background Statins are widely used to lower cholesterol concentrations in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. The treatment increases the risk of muscle pain (myalgia) and...

The muscle anabolic effect of protein ingestion during a hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp in middle-aged women is not caused by leucine alone.

It has been suggested that leucine is primarily responsible for the increase in muscle protein synthesis after protein ingestion because leucine uniquely activates the mTOR-p70S6K signaling cascade. W...

Central galanin receptor 2 mediates galanin action to promote systemic glucose metabolism of type 2 diabetic rats.

Although recent results of our and other studies have showed that galanin (GAL) is an antidiabetic and anti-inflammatory neuropeptide, the molecular mechanism how central GAL regulates energy homeosta...

Clinical Evaluation of MK-2640: An Insulin Analog with Glucose-Responsive Properties.

The goal of this investigation was to examine clinical translation of glucose responsiveness of MK-2640, which is a novel insulin saccharide conjugate that can bind the insulin receptor or mannose rec...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.

A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
