Elevation of circulating free fatty acids abolishes down-regulation of skeletal muscle adiponectin receptor 1 (AdipoR1) expression caused by insulin infusion

Straczkowski Marek , Karczewska-Kupczewska Monika , Adamska Agnieszka , Stefanowicz Magdalena , Matulewicz Natalia , Kowalska Irina , Nikolajuk Agnieszka

Introduction: Adiponectin is an adipocytokine with insulin-sensitizing and anti-inflammatory properties. In skeletal muscle, it increases fatty acid oxidation and insulin-stimulated glucose uptake through binding with adiponectin receptor 1 (AdipoR1). The aim of our study was to assess the effect of insulin and Intralipid/heparin infusions on muscle AdipoR1 expression in humans.Methods: Twenty healthy male subjects (age 25.2±3.2 years; BMI, 26.5&#17...

Skeletal muscle and adipose tissue glycoprotein 130 expression is associated with insulin resistance in humans

Karczewska-Kupczewska Monika , Nikolajuk Agnieszka , Adamska Agnieszka , Matulewicz Natalia , Stefanowicz Magdalena , Kowalska Irina , Straczkowski Marek

Introduction: Glycoprotein 130 (gp130) cytokines, like interleukin 6 (IL6), act through plasma membrane receptors consisting of two glycoproteins: a cytokine binding subunit (like IL6R) and gp130, responsible for signal transduction. IL6 may regulate insulin sensitivity in a dual manner, as both insulin-sensitizing and -desensitizing actions have been reported. Other gp130 cytokines may have a beneficial metabolic effects. The aim of the present study was to assess skeletal mu...

Autoantibodies to the insulin- and IGF1-receptor in human sera

Welsink Tim , Schwiebert Christian , Minich Waldemar , Schomburg Lutz

Introduction: Autoantibodies (aAB) are characteristic of autoimmune diseases, but may also be found in apparently healthy individuals and precede pathological symptoms. We have recently reported on autoantibodies against the IGF1-receptor (IGF1R-aAB) in control subjects and patients with Graves’ disease (1). The isolated aAB were able to immunoprecipitate the recombinant autoantigen and antagonized IGF1 signaling in vitro. Given the structural similarities betwee...

Forga Luis , Goni Maria Jose , Chinchurreta Laura , Lafita Franciso Javier , Iriarte Ana , Manuel Fernandez- Real Jose

Introduction: In patients with type 1 diabetes, exercise has not consistently been shown to improve glycemic control, as measured using HbA1c levels. Participation in competitive sports may even worsen glycaemic control. Free radicals and oxidative stress markers are known to increase during acute exercise in parallel to decreased circulating antioxidant concentrations. We aimed to analyze the effects of chronic and acute exercise on circulating HbA1c and fructosamine levels.<...

Reconsidering guidance for postnatal glucose screening in gestational diabetes

Jarvis Sheba , Feben Christine , Roy Stephanie , Sheridan Richard , Boret Tony , Trainor Orla , Clements Michael R

Background: National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines advise that GDM be diagnosed using a 2-hr 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). However there is lack of consensus on the optimal postpartum surveillance. Current postpartum screening guidance suggests a single fasting plasma glucose (FPG) at 6-weeks with annual testing thereafter. As women with GDM are often from mixed ethnic groups and frequently have postprandial hyperglycaemia, ...

Noah Rahim Mhd , Jaafar Nur Hayati Marican , Gopalan Hanan Kumar , Jais Mohamad Rohani

Solvent and process variables were critical to optimize the extractions of potential hypoglycemic compounds within medicinal plants. Hence, the undertaken study was designed to evaluate the hypoglycemic effectiveness exhibited by extraction performed in decoction manner using water as solvent and compares it with an aqueous-methanol solvent extraction. To evaluate the extractions prepared, phytochemical assays and in vivo study in induced-diabetic rats were carried ou...

Pre-diabetes study in Libya: delay and prevention T2DM

Eltobgi Abduladim

T2DM is expected to rise to 552 million by 2030. DM is associated with complications which result in reduced quality of life and premature mortality.T2DM has a long asymptomatic pre-clinical phase (~5–10 years) which frequently goes undetected. Benefits of early diagnosis on outcomes in screen-detected DM remain unclear. Some indirect evidence suggesting that early detection and intervention may be beneficial.Screening for DM ...

Molecular docking research analysis of novel natural and synthetic PTP 1B inhibitors as potential therapeutic target for diabetes mellitus

Ahmed Danish , Sharma Manju , Kumar Vikas , Subhashchandra Pankaj Yadav

Augmented pervasiveness of type 2 diabetes mellitus and obesity has amplified the medical necessitate for new agents to treat these disease states. Both type 2 diabetes and obesity are connected to the resistance to the hormones insulin and leptin. Protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) has been shown to function as negative regulator of insulin signalling as well as leptin signal transduction. At present there are copious compounds synthesized as PTP1B inhibitors. The develo...
