  1. 1. Modulators of UCP1-dependent thermogenesis Glucocorticoids, diet and novel research models

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

    Author : Ineke H. N. Luijten; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; brown adipose tissue; UCP1; glucocorticoids; diet-induced thermogenesis; obesity; physiology; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : The activation and recruitment of brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis has been put forward as a promising strategy to reduce the disease burden of obesity and obesity-related diseases. Heat production by BAT can be attributed to the tissue-specific mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1). READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy flow and metabolic efficiency attributed to brown adipose tissue

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

    Author : Gabriella von Essen; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brown adipose tissue; BAT; UCP1; diet-induced thermogenesis; DIT; obesity; high-fat diet; energy expenditure; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : The large capacity of brown adipose tissue (BAT) to expend energy as heat makes it an interesting potential player in weight regulation and other metabolic conditions. This is of particular interest as it has been recognized that adult humans possess BAT. READ MORE

  3. 3. The effect of various dietary fatty acids on adaptive thermogenesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Gabriella von Essen; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : Recently it has been revealed that brown adipose tissue (BAT) is present in adult humans and not, as thought before, only in infants and rodents. BAT, with a main function to generate heat, is also involved in energy metabolism by an adaptive response to eating, referred to as diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT). READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel lipid derivatives for health benefits

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Samanthi Madawala; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Obesity is a public health concern and requires effective management with multiple approaches. Dietary supplements of bioactive compounds that can improve fatty acid oxidation and thermogenesis are currently in focus to develop anti-obese food ingredients/nutraceuticals without side-effects.

  5. 5. The role of growth factors in white fat browning and metabolic disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Carina Fischer; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The adipose tissue is composed of a variety of cell types that constantly cross-communicate with each other to allow the tissue to operate and to adapt to various external stimuli. The diversity of these cell populations and their production of secretory factors define not only adipose tissue morphology, but also its function. READ MORE
