Acerola (Malpighia emarginata DC.) juice intake protects against alterations to proteins involved in inflammatory and lipolysis pathways in the adipose tissue of obese mice fed a cafeteria diet
(Biomed Central Ltd., 2014-02-04)
Background: Obesity has been studied as a metabolic and an inflammatory disease and is characterized by increases in the production of pro-inflammatory adipokines in the adipose tissue. To elucidate the effects of natural ...
Metformin mitigates fibrosis and glucose intolerance induced by doxorubicin in subcutaneous adipose tissue
Doxorubicin (DX) is a chemotherapeutic drug that is used in clinical practice that promotes deleterious side effects in non-tumor tissues such as adipose tissue. We showed that DX leads to extensive damage in adipose tissue ...
Testosterone increases CCL-2 expression in visceral adipose tissue from obese women of reproductive age
(Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2017)
© 2017 Elsevier B.V. Context Hyperandrogenic states and obesity in women are associated with insulin-resistance. Androgens reduce glucose uptake in adipose cells and increase TNFα production in peripheral monocytes. ...
Time course of adipose tissue dysfunction associated with antioxidant defense, inflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress in dyslipemic insulin resistant rats
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01)
The dysfunctional adipose tissue of rats fed a sucrose-rich diet was investigated following the time course of the development of oxidative stress, changes in proinflammatory cytokines and adiponectin levels, and their ...
White adipose tissue IFN-γ expression and signalling along the progression of rodent cancer cachexia
Cachexia is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in cancer. The White adipose tissue (WAT) synthesizes and releases several pro-inflammatory cytokines that play a role in cancer cachexia-related systemic ...
Exhaustive exercise causes an anti-inflammatory effect in skeletal muscle and a pro-inflammatory effect in adipose tissue in rats
It is well known that exhaustive exercise increases serum and skeletal muscle IL-6 concentrations. However, the effect of exhaustive exercise on the concentrations of other cytokines in the muscle and in the adipose tissue ...
