Our data suggest a physiological mechanism whereby DNL is downregulated as adipocytes expand. Taken together with other data, they also suggest that hepatic and adipose tissue DNL are not regulated in parallel. We also confirm a strong relationship between small adipocytes and insulin...
We selected an appropriate subset of variants for the investigation of common genetic risk factors and assessed SMAD1 to SMAD5 genes for association with diabetic nephropathy. We conclude that common polymorphisms in these genes do not strongly influence genetic susceptibility to diabetic...
Sortilin, an essential player in adipocyte and muscle glucose metabolism through the control of GLUT4 localisation, is downregulated in obesity and TNF-α is likely to be involved in this defect. Chronic low-grade inflammation in obesity could thus contribute to insulin resistance by modulating...
These observations suggest that neither typical protein kinase C isoforms nor p38 MAPK are involved in the potentiation of glucose-induced insulin release by kisspeptin, but intracellular signalling pathways involving phospholipase C, p42/44 MAPK and increased (Ca 2+ ) i are required for the...
The protein kinase C (PKC) superfamily comprises proteins that are activated in response to various pathogenic stimuli in the diabetic state. Hyperglycaemia is the predominant stimulus that induces the activation of distinct PKC isoforms within a cell, each mediating specific functions, probably...
A common variant in the MTNR1B gene is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and increased fasting plasma glucose in Han Chinese, suggesting an important role for this polymorphism in populations of different ethnic and environmental backgrounds.
