1. Studies on the assembly of cytosolic lipid droplets. Importance of Phospholipase D and ADRP in the process
Sammanfattning : The storage of triglycerides in cells such as adipocytes, liver or muscle cells is of great physiological importance, having implications for our most important metabolic diseases such as obesity, the metabolic syndrome and type II diabetes. A common denominator in these diseases is the insulin resistance, which is also highly related to the production of atherogenic lipoproteins and the development of atherosclerosis and consequently cardio-vascular diseases.

Sammanfattning : The classical dyslipidemia seen in patients with type 2 diabetes is characterized by elevated serum triglycerides (TG), low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and the appearance of small, dense low-density lipoproteins (LDL). It is now recognized that the different components of diabetic dyslipidemia are not isolated abnormalities but are closely linked to each other metabolically, and are initiated by the hepatic overproduction of large triglyceride-rich very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL1).

Sammanfattning : In recent decades, obesity has gone from being a problem of first world countries to a global one. It is considered one of the main risk factors for many serious medical conditions. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis is the process of blood vessel growth from pre-existing vasculatures. In the adult, it is involved in certain physiological processes, such as in organ and tissue regeneration, wound healing, and in female reproductive cycles. LÄS MER
