  1. 1. Salt-inducible kinases in adipose tissue

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Johanna Sernevi Säll; [2017]
    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. Insulin signalling in human adipocytes mechanisms of insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Institutionen för klinisk och experimentell medicin

    Author : Anna Danielsson; Peter Strålfors; Fredrik Nyström; Lena Stensson; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipocytes; type 2 diabetes; insulin; insulin resistance; insulin signalling; phosphorylation; insulin receptor substrate 1; feedback control; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Medical cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi 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

  3. 3. Electrophysiology of pancreatic A-, B- and D-cells studied in intact mouse islets of Langerhans

    University dissertation from Molecular and Cellular Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Sven Göpel; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; somatostatin; glucagon; insulin; patch-clamp; membrane potential; Pancreatic islet; ion channel; diabetes; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Abstract The electrophysiological properties of insulin-secreting b-cells, glucagon-releasing a-cells and somatostation-producing d-cells in intact mouse pancreatic islets were investigated using the perforated patch whole-cell technique. It is demonstrated that it is possible to functionally identify the different cell types in situ. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic and epigenetic influence on oxidative phosphorylation, islet function and type 2 diabetes in humans

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Anders H Olsson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 2 Diabetes; Genetics; Epigenetics; Human Pancreatic Islets; Oxidative Phosphorylation; Insulin Secretion;

    Abstract : The prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) is increasing worldwide. T2D is a heterogeneous disease caused by a complex interplay between multiple genetic, epigenetic and non-genetic factors. The disease is characterised by impaired insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells and insulin resistance in peripheral tissues. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of genetic variation and DNA methylation in human glucose metabolism and type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Tina Rönn, Lund University

    Author : Tina Rönn; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gene expression; oxidative phosphorylation; GWAS; SNP; DNA methylation; epigenetics; type 2 diabetes;

    Abstract : The incidence of diabetes is increasing worldwide, with the most prevalent form being type 2 diabetes. Two fundamental processes contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes: insulin resistance in target organs and insufficient insulin secretion from the pancreatic beta-cells. READ MORE
