  1. 1. Modulators of UCP1-dependent thermogenesis : Glucocorticoids, diet and novel research models

    Författare :Ineke H. N. Luijten; Jan Nedergaard; Onno Meijer; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; brown adipose tissue; UCP1; glucocorticoids; diet-induced thermogenesis; obesity; physiology; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Sammanfattning : The activation and recruitment of brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis has been put forward as a promising strategy to reduce the disease burden of obesity and obesity-related diseases. Heat production by BAT can be attributed to the tissue-specific mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Energy flow and metabolic efficiency attributed to brown adipose tissue

    Författare :Gabriella von Essen; Jan Nedergaard; Susanne Klaus; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brown adipose tissue; BAT; UCP1; diet-induced thermogenesis; DIT; obesity; high-fat diet; energy expenditure; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : The large capacity of brown adipose tissue (BAT) to expend energy as heat makes it an interesting potential player in weight regulation and other metabolic conditions. This is of particular interest as it has been recognized that adult humans possess BAT. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Novel lipid derivatives for health benefits : synthesis, analysis and effects in diet-induced obese mice

    Författare :Samanthi Madawala; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Obesity is a public health concern and requires effective management with multiple approaches. Dietary supplements of bioactive compounds that can improve fatty acid oxidation and thermogenesis are currently in focus to develop anti-obese food ingredients/nutraceuticals without side-effects.

  4. 4. The effect of various dietary fatty acids on adaptive thermogenesis

    Författare :Gabriella von Essen; Jan Nedergaard; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : Recently it has been revealed that brown adipose tissue (BAT) is present in adult humans and not, as thought before, only in infants and rodents. BAT, with a main function to generate heat, is also involved in energy metabolism by an adaptive response to eating, referred to as diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Myosin 1c taking adrenergic metabolism for a spin : More than a motor protein

    Författare :Alice Åslund; Tore Bengtsson; Michael Czech; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucose uptake; Glucose transporter; Brown adipose tissue; White adipose tissue; Skeletal muscle; Myosin1c; Nuclear myosin I; Physiology; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Sammanfattning : Metabolic diseases like type II diabetes (T2D) and obesity largely stems from an unbalanced energy homeostasis with the fails of the insulin pathway to the point in which the glucose homeostasis is severely disturbed leading to hyperglycemia. We have investigated if the β-adrenergic signaling pathways, in both brown adipose tissue (BAT) and skeletal muscle, could be used as a strategy to alleviate metabolic disease. LÄS MER
