The role of protein kinase C (PKC) in glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) is controversial. Using recombinant adenoviruses for overexpression of PKC alpha and PKC delta, in both wild-type (WT) and kinase-dead (KD...

Parkinson's disease

Jul 14, 2008 07:00 PM
Read about Parkinson's, symptoms and real life stories. Garvan's research focuses on early diagnosis, stopping progression with neuroprotective drugs, and clinical trials.
Brown adipose tissue (BAT), largely controlled by the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), has the ability to dissipate energy in the form of heat through the actions of uncoupling protein-1 (UCP-1), thereby critically infl...
BACKGROUND & AIMS: Aryl hydrocarbon Receptor Nuclear Translocator (ARNT) and its partners hypoxia-inducible factors (HIF)-1alpha and HIF-2alpha are candidate factors for the well-known link between the liver, metabolic d...
Disorders in mineral metabolism and bone disease are common complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD), and a significant cause of the morbidity and decreased quality of life of CKD patients. Importantly, there is an ...
Before the availability of immunoassays for IGF-I, growth hormone (GH) measurement was the sole method used in the biochemical assessment of acromegaly. IGF-I has since been established as the most reliable biochemical i...
BACKGROUND: The development of differentiated sexual stages (gametocytes) within human red blood cells is essential for the propagation of the malaria parasite, since only mature gametocytes will survive in the mosquito'...
CONTEXT: The endocrine and metabolic functions of the liver are affected by estrogen. Oral estrogen reduces IGF-I and suppresses fat oxidation despite augmenting GH secretion. The aim of this study was to determine wheth...
BACKGROUND: A fracture liaison service model of care is widely recommended and applied, but data on its effectiveness are scarce. Therefore, the risk of subsequent nonvertebral fractures and mortality within two years af...
We examined relationships among alcohol intake, dietary fat composition, and total body fat (TBF) and central abdominal fat (CAF), independent of genetic confounders, and evaluated the modulating effect of genetic suscep...
A major weakness in many high-throughput genomic studies is the lack of consideration of a clinical environment where one patient at a time must be evaluated. We examined generalizable and platform-specific sources of va...
Virtual reality surgical simulators have proven value in the acquisition and assessment of laparoscopic skills. In this study, we investigated skill transfer from a virtual reality laparoscopic simulator into the operati...
Use of a briefer incubation interval in several steroid radioimmunoassays markedly increases cross reactions with some closely related steroids. The dissociation rates of the various steroid/antibody complexes play a cri...
