Long Time Metabolic Changes Induced by Genetically Modified Potatoes

In this study the effects of genetically modified potatoes on the human metabolism will be observed. Healthy volunteers receive for one week muffins, produced with starch from a geneticall...

Influence of Resistant Starch Intake in Potatoes on Blood Glucose and Satiety Responses in Overweight Females

Resistant starch (RS) is a type of fiber that has unique digestive properties that can impact overall health including glucose homeostasis and satiety. RS found in potatoes can be increase...

Effect of Anthocyanins Extracted From Purple Potatoes on Healthy Study Subjects' Postprandial Glycemia and Insulinemia

A randomized, single-blind cross-over clinical nutrition trial will be conducted. The effects of yellow-fleshed potatoes and yellow-fleshed potatoes supplemented with anthocyanins extracte...

Potatoes, Hypertension RIsk and Endothelial Function Study

White potatoes have recently been allowed back in the cash value voucher of the government food stamp program after it was stated that there were no known adverse health effects of potatoe...

Genetically Modified T Cells and Decitabine in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancer

This phase I trial studies the side effects of genetically modified T cells and decitabine in treating patients with ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer that has come bac...

FGF21 Mediates the Associations between Exercise, Ageing, and Glucose Regulation.

Ageing increases the prevalence of glucose intolerance, but exercise improves glucose homeostasis. The fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21)-adiponectin axis helps regulate glucose metabolism. However, ...

Effect of High Glucose Condition on Glucose Metabolism in Primary Astrocytes.

In the brain, glucose enters astrocytes through glucose transporter (GLUT1) and either enters glycolysis or the glycogen shunt. Astrocytes meet the energy needs of neurons by building up and breaking ...

Bile acids associate with glucose metabolism, but do not predict conversion from impaired fasting glucose to diabetes.

Bile acids (BAs) are signaling molecules controlling lipid and glucose metabolism. Since BA alterations are associated with obesity and insulin resistance, plasma BAs have been considered candidates t...

MicroRNA-15a Inhibits Glucose Transporter 4 Translocation and Impairs Glucose Metabolism in L6 Skeletal Muscle Via Targeting of Vesicle-Associated Membrane Protein-Associated Protein A.

MicroRNAs have been reported to participate in various important cell biological processes, such as glucose metabolism. The aim of this study was to explore the roles of microRNA-15a (miR-15a) in regu...

Bromocriptine improves glucose tolerance independent of circadian timing, prolactin, or the melanocortin-4 receptor.

Bromocriptine, a dopamine D2 receptor agonist originally used for the treatment of hyperprolactinemia, is largely successful in reducing hyperglycemia and improving glucose tolerance in type 2 diabeti...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Peptide hormones that cause an increase in the absorption of GLUCOSE by cells within organs such as LIVER, MUSCLE and ADIPOSE TISSUE. During normal metabolism insulins are produced by the PANCREATIC BETA CELLS in response to increased GLUCOSE. Natural and chemically-modified forms of insulin are also used in the treatment of GLUCOSE METABOLISM DISORDERS such as DIABETES MELLITUS.

Food derived from genetically modified organisms (ORGANISMS, GENETICALLY MODIFIED).

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.

An ester of glucose with phosphoric acid, made in the course of glucose metabolism by mammalian and other cells. It is a normal constituent of resting muscle and probably is in constant equilibrium with fructose-6-phosphate. (Stedman, 26th ed)

Pathological conditions in which the BLOOD GLUCOSE cannot be maintained within the normal range, such as in HYPOGLYCEMIA and HYPERGLYCEMIA. Etiology of these disorders varies. Plasma glucose concentration is critical to survival for it is the predominant fuel for the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
