Vascular calcification is highly prevalent in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), one of the most common chronic diseases with high morbidity and mortality. In recent years, microRNAs have been widely reported as potential biomarkers for the diagnosis and treatment of T2DM. We hypothesized that miR-128-3p is associated with cardiovascular calcification and insulin resistance (IR) in rats with T2DM by targeting ISL1 via the Wnt pathway. Microarray analysis was adopted to identify differentially expressed genes related to T2DM...

BACKGROUND: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most prevalent cause of anovulatory infertility and hyperandrogenism. Evidence favors insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsulinemia as the predominant, perhaps primary, defects in PCOS. The use of insulin-sensitizing drugs has been shown to improve both the reproductive and the metabolic aspects of PCOS. Cinnamon has been found to have insulin sensitizing effect and improve menstrual cyclicity in women with PCOS. The aim of this study was to determine the effect and mechanism of cinnamon on PCOS using a dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) induced PCOS mouse model...

Rates of obesity have been growing at alarming rates, compromising the health of the world population. Thus, the search for interventions that address the metabolic repercussions of obesity are necessary. Here we evaluated the metabolic and antioxidant effects of zinc and branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplementation on obese rats. Male Wistar rats were fed with high-fat/high-fructose diet (HFD) or standard diet (SD) for 19 weeks. From the 15th week until the end of the experiment, HFD and SD-fed rats received zinc (6mg/kg) or BCAA (750mg/kg) supplementation...

The aberrant expression of Pknox1 is associated with hepatic glucose and lipid dysmetabolism status of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, the underlying mechanism causing Pknox1 overexpression in this pathological status remains unclear. By using miRNA target prediction programs, we found that the 3'-UTR of the Pknox1 mRNA sequence contains highly conserved target sites of miR-17 family. In a rat model of streptozotocin and high-fat diet-induced T2DM and NAFLD complication, the increased hepatic expression of Pknox1 was consistent with decreased expressions of miR-17 family, especially miR-17 and miR-20a...

Sterile inflammation of visceral fat, provoked by dying adipocytes, links the metabolic syndrome to cardiovascular disease. Danger-associated molecular patterns, such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP), are released by activated or dying cells and orchestrate leukocyte infiltration and inflammation via the purinergic receptor P2Y2 . The gene expression of ATP receptor P2Y2 did not change in several tissues in the course of obesity, but was increased within epididymal fat. Adipose tissue from P2Y 2 -/- mice consuming high-fat diet (HFD) contained less crown-like structures with a reduced frequency of adipose tissue macrophages (ATMs)...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Atherosclerosis as the main underlying mechanism of CAD is associated with inflammation and adipose tissue dysfunction. C1q/TNF-related protein12 (CTRP12) is a newly discovered adipokine which is a paralog of adiponectin. CTRP12 has anti-inflammatory and insulin sensitizing effects. Circulating levels of this adipokine have been reported to be lower in patients with type 2 diabetes and women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. The present study was undertaken for the first time to evaluate serum levels of CTRP12 in CAD patients and its association with anthropometric and biochemical parameters...

Standard statistical modelling has shown that the reallocation of sitting time to either standing or stepping may be beneficial for metabolic health. However, this overlooks the inherent dependency of time spent in all behaviours. The aim is to examine the associations between physical behaviours and markers of metabolic health (fasting glucose, fasting insulin, 2-h glucose, 2-h insulin, Homeostasis Model Assessment of Insulin Sensitivity (HOMA-IS), Matsuda Insulin Sensitivity Index (Matsuda-ISI) while quantifying the associations of reallocating time from one physical behaviour to another using compositional analysis...

We examined the impact of APOE genotype on plasma lipids and glucose in a secondary analysis of data from a five-arm, randomised controlled, parallel dietary intervention trial ('RISCK' study), to investigate the impact of replacing saturated fatty acids (SFA) with either monounsaturated fat (MUFA) or carbohydrate of high or low glycaemic index (GI) on CVD risk factors and insulin sensitivity. We tested the impact of APOE genotype (carriage of E2 and E4 alleles versus E3/E3), determined retrospectively, on plasma lipids, lipoproteins and glucose homeostasis at baseline ( n = 469), and on the change in these variables after 24 weeks of dietary intervention ( n = 389)...

The detection of insulin by electrochemical (EC) immunoassay is desirable but highly challenged due to the obstacle of improving accuracy, especially in single response system. In this work, based on Cu7S4-Au as a dual signal indicator, we fabricated a dual mode electrochemical immunoassay for insulin. Especially, Cu7S4 presents a strong differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) signal for the electron transfer between the Cu2+ and Cu+, without the addition of K3[Fe(CN)6] or other electron transfer mediators. Furthermore, Cu7S4 displays high sensitivity and high electrocatalytic activity towards the reduction of H2O2 through chronoamperometry (CA)...

Regular exercise-induced acute inflammatory responses are suggested to improve the inflammatory profile and insulin sensitivity. As body temperature elevations partly mediate this response, passive heating might be a viable tool to improve the inflammatory profile. This study investigated the acute, and chronic effects of hot water immersion on inflammatory and metabolic markers. Ten sedentary, overweight males (BMI: 31.0±4.2 kg/m2 ) were immersed in water set at 39°C for 1 h (HWI) or rested for 1 h at ambient temperature (AMB)...

Apelin, a peptide hormone that has been linked to insulin resistance, obesity and glucose metabolism, coexists with arginine vasopressin (AVP) in hypothalamic magnocellular neurons that control body fluid homeostasis. The significant correlation between serum glucose and serum osmolarity in uncontrolled DM indicates the need for adequate compensation, but how apelin and AVP contribute to this is still unsettled. This study aims to investigate the interaction between apelin and AVP in osmotic regulation in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and to explore the underlying mechanism...

Macrophages have been recognized as key players in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Our aim was to assess whether pharmacological attenuation of macrophages can be achieved by imatinib, an anti-leukemia drug with known anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties, and how this impacts on NAFLD. We analyzed the pro- and anti-inflammatory gene expression of murine macrophages and human monocytes in vitro in the presence or absence of imatinib. In a time-resolved study, we characterized metabolic disease manifestations such as hepatic steatosis, systemic and adipose tissue inflammation as well as lipid and glucose metabolism in obese mice at one and three months of imatinib treatment...

Uric acid as the final result of purine bases metabolism. In high level condition, uric acid enters the cell and act as oxidant, and acts as independent risk factor and predicts the incident of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). It may directly inactivate or through oxidative reaction that lower the nitric oxide (NO) level. Lower NO level will reduce insulin uptake in tissues and reduce in GLUT4 translocation in cell that will effect the blood glucose level. The High level of uric acid or hyperuricemia makes oxidative stress by inducing the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) which interferes the insulin signalling pathway,creates inflammatory  state that reduced the insulin sensitivity,blood glucose uptake and metabolism, also reducing the insulin production from pancreatic islet cells...
