  1. 1. Peocolipase and enterostatin- Functions during high-fat feeding

    University dissertation from Catarina Rippe, Dept. of cell and molecular biology, BMC, B11, 221084 Lund

    Author : Catarina Rippe; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine human and vertebrates ; high-fat diet; obesity; lipase; uncoupling protein; procolipase; enterostatin; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : Enterostatin is a peptide formed in the stomach and intestine during the activation of pancreatic/gastric procolipase. Procolipase is a necessary cofactor for lipase. These two proteins contribute to the breakdown of dietary triglycerides in the intestine. READ MORE

  2. 2. Intestinal Gene Expression Profiling and Fatty Acid Responses to a High-fat Diet

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonathan Cedernaes; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) regulates nutrient uptake, secretes hormones and has a crucial gut flora and enteric nervous system. Of relevance for these functions are the G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and the solute carriers (SLCs). READ MORE

  3. 3. 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; Jan Nedergaard; Susanne Klaus; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brown adipose tissue; BAT; UCP1; diet-induced thermogenesis; DIT; obesity; high-fat diet; energy expenditure; Physiology; fysiologi;

    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

  4. 4. Exploring the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Jie Xu; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiota; Probiotics; Blood pressure; High fat diet; Oat; Green tea; Berry; Fiber; Exopolysaccharides; Ulcerative colitis;

    Abstract : Abstract: Balanced microbiota of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is important for maintaining health of the host. Altered gut microbiota have been found to be associated with various life-style induced and other intestinal inflammatory diseases. Gut microbiota is viewed as a metabolic organ and considered as new target for therapies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adapt, Survive or Die - Metabolic Imbalances and the Enteric Nervous System

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Ulrikke Voss; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; enteric nervous system; high fat diet; neuropathy; neuroplasticity; metabolic imbalance;

    Abstract : Abstract: In this thesis the questions “do enteric neurons adapt to survive in conditions of obesity/type 2-diabetes (T2D) related metabolic imbalances? Or do they die?” are asked. Obese and T2D patients have high rates of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. READ MORE
