Sammanfattning : A major cause of morbidity and early death in the Western societies is cardiovascular disease (CVD) secondary to atherosclerotic disease. Metabolic aberrations have been linked to CVD. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In salmonids, the physiological role of leptin is not completely elucidated. Nonetheless, the anorexigenic effect of leptin indicates a role in their energy homeostasis. This thesis focuses on advancing the understanding of the involvement of the leptin system in the regulation of energy homeo-stasis and food intake in teleost fish. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Objective: Obesity has become the leading cause of mortality worldwide; however, the fundamental pathophysiology underlying this association remains unclear. The discovery of adipokines, i.e., cytokines produced by adipose cells (adipocytes), revealed that adipose tissue is a highly endocrine organ, thus opening new lines of investigation. LÄS MER
4. Regulation of Leptin by Sexual Maturation and Energy Status in Male Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar L.) Parr
Sammanfattning : Leptin is a peripheral adiposity signal and a key hormone in energy balance regulation in mammals, acting as a link between nutritional status and the endocrine reproductive axis. If this is also the role of leptin in fish is not fully understood. LÄS MER
