  1. 1. The assembly of cytosolic lipid droplets and its effect on insulin sensitivity

    Författare :Pontus Boström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :diabetes; lipid metabolism; insulin resistance; lipid droplets; ADFP; SNARE;

    Sammanfattning : Accumulation of neutral lipids, in particular triglycerides, in non-adipocytes is highly related to the development of insulin resistance and its consequences, type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The accumulation of triglycerides occurs in so-called lipid droplets in the cytosol. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Cardiac lipid storage and metabolism following myocardial ischemia

    Författare :Christina Drevinge; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Lipid accumulation; Myocardial Ischemia; Lipid droplets; Perilipin2; Perilipin5;

    Sammanfattning : Myocardial ischemia is associated with cellular- and metabolic adjustments within the heart, including accumulation of lipids. Myocardial lipids are stored in cytosolic droplets, consisting of a core of neutral lipids surrounded by a complex surface containing proteins, such as perilipins. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies on the assembly of cytosolic lipid droplets. Importance of Phospholipase D and ADRP in the process

    Författare :Denis Marchesan; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Lipid droplets; triglycerides; caveolin; Phospholipase D PLD ; adipocyte differentiation related protein ADRP ; EGCG;

    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.

  4. 4. Cardiac lipids and their role in the diseased heart

    Författare :Ismena Mardani; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular disease; Lipid droplets; Perilipins; Lipid accumulation; Metabolism; GlcCer;

    Sammanfattning : Lipids play an essential role within the heart as they are involved in energy storage, membrane stability and signaling. Changes in cardiac lipid composition and utilization may thus have profound effects on cardiac function. Importantly, the diseased heart is associated with intracellular metabolic abnormalities, including accumulation of lipids. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Roles of PI3-kinase and ARAP2 in regulating glucose metabolism

    Författare :Aditi Chaudhari; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :PI3-kinase; Type 2 diabetes; ARAP2; Lipid droplets; metabolism;

    Sammanfattning : Insulin signaling is mediated by a complex, highly integrated network which functions to control multiple metabolic and growth processes throughout the organism. A key enzyme in the insulin signaling network is phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase). LÄS MER
