Abstract

Obesity is a multifactorial disorder influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Animal models of obesity are required to help us understand the signaling pathways underlying this condition. Zebrafish possess many structural and functional similarities with humans and have been use...read more

Lipid Signaling in Disease

Lipids are water-insoluble molecules that make up the cell membrane and play an essential role in functioning as second messengers, hormones, and in signal transduction. Here is the latest research on lipid signaling in human diseases.

Obesity & CV Disease

Obesity is becoming a major health concern and epidemic worldwide. It is regarded as a systemic, low-grade inflammatory state and has been linked to several diseases, one of major importance is cardiovascular diseases. Here is the latest research on obesity and cardiovascular diseases.

Signal Transduction & Control of Gene Expression

Expression of genes are thought to be involved in signaling pathways, which are important for cell growth, metabolism, apoptosis and more. It is thought that gene expression plays a part in the signaling pathways that implicates the biological effects of the cell. Here is the latest research on signal transduction and the control of gene expression.

Lipid & Membrane Metabolism

Lipid metabolism refers to the synthesis and degradation of lipids in cells and is a complex process essential for fat storage and construction of cellular membranes. Discover the latest research on lipid and membrane metabolism here.

Leptin in the Brain

We discuss modulators of leptin and the leptin receptor as they relate to normal cognitive functioning and may mediate some of the actions of leptin in the brain. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to leptin in the brain.

Low-Fat Diet Effects On Serum Lipids

Consumption of low-fat diets have been shown to increase lipoprotein A and small dense low-density lipoprotein particles in the plasma. This feed focuses on the effect of low-fat diets on serum lipids.

Lipid Droplet Biology

Lipid droplets are cellular organelles that store neutral lipids enclosed in a phospholipid monolayer. They are at the centre of lipid and energy homeostasis, and several metabolic diseases including obesity and diabetes. Here is the latest research on lipid droplet biology.

Hypothalamus & Feeding

The hypothalamus has received significant attention in this regard given its ability to influence feeding behavior, yet organisms rely on a much broader diversity and distribution of neuronal networks to regulate both energy intake and expenditure. Here is the latest research on the hypothalamus and feeding.

Transglutaminase 2 & Adipogenesis

Transglutaminase 2 is a multifunctional and protein crosslinking enzyme present in the white adipose tissue. Recent studies have implicated this protein as a novel negative regulator of adipogenesis. Here is the latest research.

Platelet Activation

Platelets are a blood cell that can initiate clot formation in response to damage to blood vessels. Following platelet adhesion, platelets become activated before aggregating. Find the latest research on platelet activation here.

Neural Control of Overconsumption

Overconsumption is associated with activity of a complex network of neuroregulators affecting areas such as drug addiction and binge eating. Discover the latest research on neural control of overconsumption here.

Monogenetic Eating Disorders

Molecular genetic research of eating disorders is in its infancy. However, promising areas for future research have already been identified (e.g., 5-HT2A receptor gene, UCP-2/UCP-3 gene, estrogen receptor ß gene) and several large-scale linkage and association studies are currently underway. Discover the latest research on monogenetic eating disorders here.

Hypothalamus & Food Intake

Hypothalamus is as a signaling integratory center in a way that detection of increased levels of nutrients result in food intake inhibition through changes in the expression of anorexigenic and orexigenic neuropeptides. Here is the latest research on the hypothalamus and food intake.

Signal Transduction & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Tumor cells have their own unique signal transduction and gene expression control. Targeting these specific cellular mechanisms and genetic proflies of cancer cells is an area of therapeutic exploration for some cancers. Discover the latest research on this topic with this feed.

Anthelmintics

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.

Platelet Signaling

Platelets are a blood cell that can initiate clot formation in response to damage to blood vessels. Find the latest research on platelet signaling here.

Human Adipose Tissue Heterogeneity

Examining the genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics of the human adipose tissues at the single cell level will help build a single cell atlas of these tissues, which would give a unique ID card for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease states in which adipose tissues are involved. Disocver the latest research on the human adipose tissue heterogeneity here.

Blood Coagulation Signaling Pathways

Coagulation is the process by which a blood clot is formed. This process includes both the formation of a platelet plug as well as a cascade of clotting factors resulting in the formation of fibrin strands. Find the latest research on coagulation signaling pathways here.

Genetics of Leaness

The variation in weight within a shared environment is largely attributable to genetic factors. Understanding the mechanisms underlying leanness/resistance to obesity may highlight novel anti-obesity targets for future drug development. Discover the latest research on the genetics of leanness here.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.

Signal Transduction & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Tumor cells have their own unique signal transduction and gene expression control. Targeting these specific cellular mechanisms and genetic proflies of cancer cells is an area of therapeutic exploration for some cancers. Discover the latest research on this topic with this feed.
