Increased infammation, oxidative stress and mitochondrial respiration in brown adipose tissue from obese mice
(Scientific Reports, 2017-11-22)
Obesity is associated with severe metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer. The pathophysiology of obesity-induced metabolic diseases ...
Hypothalamic endocannabinoids inversely correlate with the development of diet-induced obesity in male and female mice
(Journal of Lipid Research, 2019-07)
The endocannabinoid (eCB) system regulates energy homeostasis and is linked to obesity development. However, the exact dynamic and regulation of eCBs in the hypothalamus during obesity progression remain ...
Ghrelin causes a decline in GABA release by reducing fatty acid oxidation in cortex
(Springer Nature, 2018)
Lipid metabolism, specifically fatty acid oxidation (FAO) mediated by carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT) 1A, has been described to be an important actor of ghrelin action in hypothalamus. However, it ...
CPT1C in the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus is necessary for brown fat thermogenesis activation in obesity
(Molecular Metabolism, 2019-01)
Objective: Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1C (CPT1C) is implicated in central regulation of energy homeostasis. Our aim was to investigate whether CPT1C in the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus ...
Liver CPT1A gene therapy reduces diet‐induced hepatic steatosis in mice and highlights potential lipid biomarkers for human NAFLD
(Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, 2020)
The prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has increased drastically due to the global obesity pandemic but at present there are no approved therapies. Here, we aimed to revert high‐fat ...
