  1. 1. The role of PPARalpha and growth hormone in hepatic lipid metaboism and atherosclerosis

    Författare :Anna Ljungberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; growth hormone; PPARalpha; atherosclerosis; lipid metabolism; fatty acids; apoB; ADRP; triglycerides; PGC-1; liver;

    Sammanfattning : Dyslipidemia mainly results from oversecretion of apoB-containing lipoproteins from theliver and is one of the most important risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis.Growth hormone (GH) plays a key role in the regulation of lipoprotein metabolism and thus,disturbances in GH secretion are associated with dyslipidemia and cardiovascular disease.

  2. 2. Molecular characterization of insulin resistance in the adipose tissue and the effects of thiazolidinediones

    Författare :Ann Hammarstedt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IRS-1; PGC-1; adiponectin; insulin resistance; TZD;

    Sammanfattning : Type 2 diabetes is the most common metabolic disorder today and has reached epidemic proportions in many contries. Insulin resistance plays a central role in the pathogenesis of Type 2 diabetes and can be present for a decade or more before onset of the disease. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Structure and function relationships in the PGC-1 family of transcriptional coactivators

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Författare :Manizheh Izadi; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : PGC-1 coactivators are central regulators of several cellular processes, most notably the coupling between energy demands and supply. PGCs activate distinct biological processes in a tissue-specific manner. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Gene expression in human skeletal muscle : Effects of activity, fibre type and inheritance for diabetes

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Författare :Maria Ahlsén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Skeletal muscle; first-degree relatives; type 2 diabetes; spinal cord injury; exercise; AMPK; PPAR; PGC-1;

    Sammanfattning : One fundamental underlying risk factor for the development of non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes mellitus is insulin resistance, which 80-90% of all type 2 diabetic patients suffer from. Risk factors for insulin resistance are for example obesity, surgery, severe illness, spinal cord injury, and pregnancy. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The metabolic syndrome : Studies on thrifty genes

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Författare :Katja Kannisto; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adipose tissue; adiponectin; 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1; BMI; glucocorticoid; GLUT; HAART; HIV; IL-6; insulin; insulin resistance; LDL-cholesterol; leptin; lifestyle; lipodystrophy; LPL; obesity; PPAR; PGC-1; polymorphism; rosiglitazone; skeletal muscle; twins;

    Sammanfattning : The metabolic syndrome consists of a cluster of atherogenic risk factors that include insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia, obesity and a procoagulant state with impaired fibrinolysis. Genetic factors might predispose to the metabolic syndrome while the increasing prevalence of visceral and abdominal obesity linked to the shift to more sedentary lifestyles exacerbates the manifestation.
