  1. 1. Adipose tissue as an active organ  blood flow regulation and tissue-specific glucocorticoid metabolism

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jonas Andersson; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1; adipose tissue; autonomic nervous system; blood flow; cortisol; nitric oxide; weight loss.; medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Background: Despite advances in the treatment of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. With the population getting older and more obese, the burden of cardiovascular disease may further increase. READ MORE

  2. 2. Obesity-associated inflammation in adipose tissue

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Malin Alvehus; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipose tissue; inflammation; pro-inflammatory cytokines; serum; obesity; weight loss; menopause;

    Abstract : Background: Excess body fat, particularly in the visceral depot, is linked to increased mortality and morbidity, including the development of diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Chronic low-grade inflammation in adipose tissue may be a key mediator of obesity-associated diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adipose tissue gene expression & candidate genes for obesity

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Lovisa Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Insulin resistance; Obesity; Adipose tissue; Adiponutrin; PNPLA; PPARGC1A; Gene expression; Case-control association study; Microarray; Genotyping; Population-based study;

    Abstract : Obesity results from an interaction between genetic and environmental factors and is a growing health problem associated with development of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This thesis has focused on investigating the genetic contribution in obesity and insulin resistance by both candidate and global gene approaches with focus on the adipose tissue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prolactin receptor expression and prolactin-mediated effects in adipose tissue

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Charlotte Ling; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipose tissue; prolactin receptor; SOCS; leptin; resistin; lipoprotein lipase;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of functional prolactin receptors (PRLRs) in white adipose tissue of mice and humans, and the possible functions mediated via PRLRs. In mouse white adipose tissue, three PRLR mRNA isoforms, L-, S2-, and S3-PRLR, and L-PRLR protein expression were detected. READ MORE

  5. 5. Brown is the new white: consequences of white adipose tissue alterations in Huntington's disease

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Andy Mccourt; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Huntington’s disease; weight loss; white adipose tissue; brown adipose tissue; peripheral symptoms; R6 2 mice; UCP1; CREB1; gene expression;

    Abstract : Huntington's disease (HD) is a devastating, inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by an expanded CAG repeat in the huntingtin gene. Peripheral symptoms, such as skeletal muscle wasting, progressive weight loss, altered body composition and endocrine disturbances exist alongside neurodegeneration. READ MORE
