  1. 1. LKB1 signaling pathways in adipocytes - Focus on the AMPK-related kinase SIK2

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Emma Henriksson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipocytes; signal transduction; protein phosphorylation; LKB1; SIK2; SIK3; cAMP;

    Abstract : Adipose tissue does not only store and release energy in response to hormones, it is also known as an endocrine organ, secreting important factors and hormones that influence for example appetite and insulin sensitivity. The association of type 2 diabetes with obesity has been known for quite some time. READ MORE
