  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Transcriptional activity of PPARγ in primary human adipocytes

    Author : Lilian Sauma; Fredrik Nyström; Mats Söderström; Jan Eriksson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The prevalence of obesity is increasing in most parts of the world and is a strong risk factor for the development of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Adipose tissue is mainly composed of adipocytes which store energy in the form of triglycerides and release it as free fatty acids. READ MORE

  3. 3. Insulin signalling in human adipocytes : mechanisms of insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes

    Author : Anna Danielsson; Peter Strålfors; Fredrik Nyström; Lena Stensson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipocytes; type 2 diabetes; insulin; insulin resistance; insulin signalling; phosphorylation; insulin receptor substrate 1; feedback control; Medical cell biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Prevalensen av fetma ökar drastiskt i stora delar av världen och utgör en stor riskfaktor för att utveckla insulinresistens och typ 2 diabetes. Fettväven kan bli mycket stor om för mycket energi tas upp av kroppen. READ MORE

  4. 4. Regulation of lipid metabolism in rat and 3T3-L1 adipocytes; Cross-talk between Insulin, the neuro-peptides PACAP/VIP and with B1-integrins

    Author : Lina Åkesson; Celiaki och diabetes; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; secreting systems; Endocrinology; obesity; Insulin; diabetes;

    Abstract : Type 2 Diabetes is a disorder that increases globally, but mainly in the western world. One of the hallmarks of Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance in the target tissues of insulin action (adipose tissue, liver and skeletal muscle). In addition, most patients with Type 2 diabetes are obese. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hormonal regulation of phosphodiesterase 3B in adipocytes

    Author : Rebecka Lindh; Signaltransduktionsforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; Endocrinology; caveolae localization ; phosphorylation interactions ; PDE3B adipocyte adipose tissue diabetes cAMP insulin ; lipolysis caveolin-1 ; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : Insulin induced activation of the cAMP degrading enzyme phosphodiesterase (PDE) 3B in adipocytes is important for insulin mediated inhibition of lipolysis. The aim of this thesis was to contribute with knowledge on the acute activation of PDE3B in response to insulin and catecholamines in adipocytes. READ MORE
