  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Who is Who in the Adipose Organ A look at the Heterogeneity of Adipocyte Biology

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

    Author : Jasper de Jong; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adipose tissue; Adipocyte; Brown; White; Brite Beige; Physiology; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : The increasing prevalence of obesity and related health complications, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, demands thorough investigation of the underlying processes. One of the key tissues investigated in this context is adipose tissue. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Adipose Tissue Heterogeneity - Development and Application of Nonlinear Microscopy Methods

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Alexandra Paul; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; least squares decomposition; stem cells; multivariate spectral analysis; obesity; adipose tissue; adipogenesis; broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering; extracellular matrix;

    Abstract : Although the negative health impacts of obesity have been well documented, the number of overweight or obese patients has and is predicted to continue rising. One of the causal factors of obesity is a constant positive energy balance mainly from excessively high caloric intake from food compared with limited physical activity (caloric expenditure).

  5. 5. Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Human Brown Adipose Tissue Methodological Development and Application

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elin Lundström; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brown adipose tissue; Magnetic resonance imaging; Positron emission tomography; Image segmentation; Glucose metabolism;

    Abstract : Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a thermogenic organ with the main human depot located in the cervical-supraclavicular (sBAT) region. BAT is proposed as a potential therapeutic target for obesity and diabetes. READ MORE
