BACKGROUND: Non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an independent cardiovascular (CV) risk factor which is closely associated with insulin resistance measured by both direct or indirect methods. Gender specific findings in the relationship between alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and CV disease, the prevalence of NAFLD and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) have been published recently. The aim of the present study was to explore the gender aspects of the association between insulin sensitivity, liver markers and other metabolic biomarkers in order to elucidate the background behind the sex influenced difference in both NAFLD, T2DM and their association with CV risk...

OBJECTIVE: The osteoblast-derived protein osteocalcin (OCN) is known to be involved in glucose metabolism by increasing adiponectin secretion from adipocytes. Recently, OCN was also found to enhance testosterone production in mouse testes, suggesting that OCN effects on energy metabolism may be mediated through testosterone. Our aim was to assess a possible gender difference in the metabolic effect of OCN in humans. METHODS: We included 135 women and 155 men exhibiting changes in glucose tolerance in our study...

Japanese species, Aplysia kurodai, feeds well on Ulva but rejects Gelidium (Geli.) or Pachydictyon (Pach.) with different rhythmic patterned movements of the jaws and radula. During ingestion the jaws open at the radula-protraction phase and remain half open at the initial phase of the radula-retraction, whereas during rejection the jaws open similarly but start to close immediately after the onset of the radula-retraction. These can be induced not only by the natural seaweed but by the extract solutions. We previously showed that the change of the patterned jaw movements from the ingestion to the rejection may result from the decrease in the delay of the firing onset of the jaw-closing (JC) motor neurons during their depolarization...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
