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

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Lovisa Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :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;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Obesity Genetics Functional Aspects of Four Genetic Loci Associated with Obesity and Body Mass

    Detta är en avhandling från Upssala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Mathias Rask-Andersen; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Obesity is a complex disorder which has reached epidemic proportions in many parts of the world. Twin studies have demonstrated a high heritability for obesity. The subsequent appli-cation of genome wide association studies (GWAS) in the last decade have identified at least 32 genetic loci associated with body mass and obesity. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Obesity and Increased Susceptibility Role of FTO and MGAT1 Genetic Variants

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Josefin A Jacobsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obesity; BMI; SNP; haplotype; association study; FTO; MGAT1; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Pharmacological research Pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Farmakologisk forskning Farmakologi; Farmakologi; Pharmacology;

    Sammanfattning : Obesity is a complex and a highly individualized disease and the molecular mechanisms behind this disorder need to be better elucidated. Identification of genes and genetic variants that are involved provide opportunities to establish a genetic understanding of the disease. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Pathogenesis of Obesity and Effects of Treatment. Clinical and Molecular Studies on Body Fat, Energy Balance, and Weight Loss

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Anders Gummesson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obesity; Adipose tissue; Obesity treatment; Energy balance; Visceral obesity; Weight loss; Cancer; Human studies;

    Sammanfattning : Obesity is common and related to many health problems including various forms of cancer. The condition arises from the imbalance between food intake and energy expenditure, and is strongly influenced by genetic factors. LÄS MER
