  1. 1. FOXC2 : a regulator of adipocyte metabolism

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Anna Cederberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; FOXC2; forkhead; winged helix; obesity; diabetes; adipocyte; insulin resistance;

    Abstract : Obesity, hyperlipidemia and insulin resistance are common forerunners of type 2 diabetes, a serious and increasingly prevalent disease in both the industrialised part of the world as well as in third world countries. We have identified the human transcription factor gene FOXC2 as a key regulator of adipocyte metabolism. READ MORE

  2. 2. Protein kinases in hormonal regulation of adipocyte metabolism

    University dissertation from Protein Phosphorylation, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Christine Berggreen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adipocyte; PKB; AMPK; SIK3; insulin; catecholamines; lipolysis; lipogenesis; glucose uptake; de novo fatty acid synthesis; A769662; Akti; cAMP;

    Abstract : Abstract Along with liver and muscle tissue, adipose tissue helps maintain normal levels of glucose and lipids in the blood and has a very important role when it comes to storing lipids that can provide whole-body energy. After a meal is ingested, adipocytes take up glucose from the circulation and use it as a substrate for synthesis of new fatty acids (FAs) in a process known as de novo fatty acid synthesis, as well as for synthesis of glycerol.

  3. 3. Who is Who in the Adipose Organ A look at the Heterogeneity of Adipocyte Biology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Jasper de Jong; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adipose tissue; Adipocyte; Brown; White; Brite Beige; Physiology; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : The increasing prevalence of obesity and related health complications, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, demands thorough investigation of the underlying processes. One of the key tissues investigated in this context is adipose tissue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human adipose tissue morphology and function : relation to insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance with focus on pregnancy and women with previous gestational diabetes mellitus

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Henrik Svensson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adipose tissue; Adipocyte; Adipokines; Insulin resistance; Pregnancy; Gestational diabetes mellitus; Type 2 diabetes;

    Abstract : Obesity is a global health problem and affects women of reproductive age. During pregnancy, obesity increases the risk for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), in turn predisposing for type 2 diabetes (T2D). READ MORE

  5. 5. Insulin Signalling and Regulation of Protein Kinase B in Adipocytes

    University dissertation from Olga Göransson

    Author : Olga Göransson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; secreting systems; Endocrinology; PDK1; PKB; diabetes; insulin; adipocyte;

    Abstract : Insulin resistance is a hallmark of type 2 diabetes, an increasingly common disorder. The cause of insulin resistance is supposedly failures in the processes used by insulin to signal to the interior of its target cells. These failing steps are still unknown, most probably because of incomplete knowledge of how the insulin signals are transmitted. READ MORE
