Diabetes mellitus is associated with abnormal bone health and an increased risk of fracture even though patients have normal or higher BMD. The mechanisms behind diabetes mellitus- induced various skeletal disorders remain unclear. Anti-diabetic drugs may have negative or positive impact on bone metabolism. For instance, thiazolidinediones increases the bone loss and risk of fracture possibly through PPARγ activation in bone marrow cells and hamper osteoblastogenesis via decreasing Runx2 transcription factor, IGF-1 and Wnt signalling pathways...

Existing drugs that have been used in clinical practice for other purposes can prove useful for reutilization, since much of the safety profile, pharmacokinetics have been completed. Therefore, the drugs can enter clinical practice for variety of causes with less regulatory burden. Metformin may prove to be such a drug where it may have a role in other diseases, beside management of diabetes. In this perspective, we provide our finding and understanding of metformin as an alternate way to treat urological abnormal proliferation...

Chronic exposure to elevated glucose levels leads to fatty acid accumulation, which promotes the development of metabolic diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. MXL-3 is a conserved transcriptional factor that modulates the inhibition of lipolysis in Caenorhabditis elegans. However, the role of MXL-3 in lipid metabolism during nutrient excess remains unknown. We hypothesized that inhibition of MXL-3 prevents glucose-dependent fat accumulation. Nematodes from wild-type N2, MXL-3::GFP and sbp-1 or mxl-3 null strains were grown on standard, high glucose or high glucose plus metformin plates for 24 h...

Background SIRT1 is an epigenetic enzyme involved in histone and non-histone protein deacetylation. It acts primarily as a metabolic sensor, which responses to changing energy status by deacetylating crucial transcription factors and cofactors. In this way, SIRT1 regulates mitochondrial function and biogenesis, oxidative stress, inflammation, apoptosis and cellular senescence. Disturbance of all of these phenomena promotes the pathogenesis of diabetic complications. These disorders are inseparably connected with chronic hyperglycemia, which possesses a strong epigenetic determinant...
