TitleDateViewsBrief Description
Conjugated Linoleic Acid Induces Human Adipocyte Delipidation AUTOCRINE/PARACRINE REGULATION OF MEK/ERK SIGNALING BY ADIPOCYTOKINES 2004 86 Dietary conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) reduces body fat in animals and some humans. Here we show that trans-10, cis-12 CLA, but not cis-9, trans-11 CLA, when added to cultures of stromal vascular cells containing newly differentiated human adipocytes...
Helenalin-mediated Post-transcriptional Regulation of p21(Cip1) Inhibits 3T3-L1 Preadipocyte Proliferation 2008 163 We have previously shown that post-transcriptional mechanisms involving the 26S proteasome regulate the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors (CKIs), p21(Cip1) and p27(Kip1) during preadipocyte proliferation. Earlier studies further demonstrated that th...
Impact of reference gene selection for target gene normalization on experimental outcome using real-time qRT-PCR in adipocytes 2010 110 BACKGROUND: With the current rise in obesity-related morbidities, real-time quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) has become a widely used method for assessment of genes expressed and regulated by adipocytes. In order...
Isomer-Specific Regulation of Metabolism and PPARy Signaling by CLA in Human Preadipocytes 2003 146 Trans-10,cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has previously been shown to be the CLA isomer responsible for CLA-induced reductions in body fat in animal models, and we have shown that this isomer, but not the cis-9,trans-11 CLA isomer, specifically...
