TitleDateViewsBrief Description
Conjugated Linoleic Acid Promotes Human Adipocyte Insulin Resistance through NF?B-dependent Cytokine Production 2005 143 We previously demonstrated that trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) reduced the triglyceride content of human adipocytes by activating mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase/extracellular signal-related kinase (MEK/ERK) signaling via int...
Helenalin-mediated Post-transcriptional Regulation of p21(Cip1) Inhibits 3T3-L1 Preadipocyte Proliferation 2008 193 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 136 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...
