  1. 1. Adipose tissue as an active organ : blood flow regulation and tissue-specific glucocorticoid metabolism

    Author : Jonas Andersson; Tommy Olsson; Stefan Söderberg; Sverker Jern; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1; adipose tissue; autonomic nervous system; blood flow; cortisol; nitric oxide; weight loss.; medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Background: Despite advances in the treatment of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. With the population getting older and more obese, the burden of cardiovascular disease may further increase. READ MORE

  3. 3. Salt-inducible kinases in adipose tissue

    Author : Johanna Sernevi Säll; Proteinfosforylering; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; salt-inducible kinase; SIK; SIK2; fettväv; fettceller; insulinsignalering; glukosupptag; fetma; insulinresistens; salt-inducible kinase; SIK; SIK2; adipose tissue; adipocytes; insulin signalling; glucose uptake; obesity; insulin resistance;

    Abstract : Obesity, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes (T2D) are metabolic diseases that increase rapidly in the modern society. The underlying mechanisms are complex and involve both environmental and genetic factors. Adipose tissue is an important organ for maintaining whole body energy homeostasis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Obesity-associated inflammation in adipose tissue

    Author : Malin Alvehus; Tommy Olsson; Agneta Holmäng; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipose tissue; inflammation; pro-inflammatory cytokines; serum; obesity; weight loss; menopause;

    Abstract : Background: Excess body fat, particularly in the visceral depot, is linked to increased mortality and morbidity, including the development of diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Chronic low-grade inflammation in adipose tissue may be a key mediator of obesity-associated diseases. READ MORE

  5. 5. AMP-activated protein kinase in adipose tissue

    Author : Franziska Kopietz; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AMPK; adipose tissue; adipocytes; diabetes; insulin; glucose uptake; lipolysis; FA synthesis; ADaM site activators;

    Abstract : The AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a ubiquitously expressed kinase, which is activated in response to depletion of cellularenergy levels. Once active, it functions to alter cellular metabolism in a way that leads to restoration of energy levels. Therefore,AMPK is described as the key regulator of cellular energy homeostasis. READ MORE
