  1. 1. Leptin endocrinology and energy homeostasis in salmonids

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Marcus Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Leptin; Leptin binding-protein; Energy homeostasis; Oncorhynchus mykiss; Salvelinus alpinus; Adiposity; Food intake; Fasting; Refeeding; Catabolism; Anorexia;

    Abstract : In salmonids, the physiological role of leptin is not completely elucidated. Nonetheless, the anorexigenic effect of leptin indicates a role in their energy homeostasis. This thesis focuses on advancing the understanding of the involvement of the leptin system in the regulation of energy homeo-stasis and food intake in teleost fish. READ MORE

  2. 2. Weight loss studies in obese patients. Aspects of very-low-energy diet treatment and effects of obesity surgery on disability pension

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Lena Gripeteg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; obesity; weight loss; outcome; predictive factors; controlled trial; randomised trial; obesity surgery; very-low-energy diet; disability pension; eating behaviour; quality of life;

    Abstract : Obesity is associated with increased risk of serious medical conditions, impaired quality of life, reduced working capacity, and shortened life expectancy. Obesity surgery is the most effective weight loss treatment with large health benefits, including reduced mortality. However, the long-term effects on productivity loss are not known. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of Elovl and fatty acid metabolism

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Annelie Brolinson; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fatty acid metabolism; fatty acid elongation; ODONTOLOGY Physiology; ODONTOLOGI Fysiologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : Fatty acids are important regulators in the control of mammalian energy homeostasis. They are ingested in the diet but a significant amount are also endogenously produced by de novo lipogenesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Growth and integrity of the small intestine in malnutrition and trauma

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Michael Wirén; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glutamine; growth factors; intestinal mucosa; malnutrition; permeability; surgery; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The small intestine is an active metabolic organ constituting a functional and immunologic barrier to toxins and microbes in the intestinal lumen. Injuries are repaired by rapid cell replication, which depends on nutritional and humoral growth factors. Glutamine has been suggested to be the most important nutrient for the enterocytes.

  5. 5. Initiation of Protein Biosynthesis in Skeletal Muscles at Feeding

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Britt-Marie Iresjö; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Protein synthesis; Translation initiation; amino acids; Snat 2; MHC2A; IGF-I;

    Abstract : Background and aim. Artificial nutrition by intravenous feeding has for decades indicated less than optimal support of whole-body protein metabolism and balance during some treatment conditions. READ MORE
