and visfatin: regulators of insulin sensitivity, inflammation and immunity.
, interleukin-6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and human semen parameters in the presence of leukocytospermia, smoking habit, and varicocele.
1[beta]-Hydroxy-2-oxopomolic acid, isolated from Agrimonia pilosa, has been reported to inhibit adipocyte differentiation and expression of several adipogenic marker genes, such as peroxisome proliferator activated receptor [gamma] (PPAR[gamma]), CCAAT-enhancer-binding protein a (C/EBP[alpha]), glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4), adiponectin, adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein 2 (aP2), adipocyte determination and differentiation factor 1/sterol regulatory element binding protein 1c (ADDl/SREBP1c), resistin
and fatty acid synthase (Fas) in pre-adipocytes.
Effect of olive oil consumption on serum resistin
concentrations in healthy men.
Adipocytokine levels in gastric cancer patients: resistin
and visfatin as biomarkers of gastric cancer.
Hepatic enzyme, serum lipid levels, oxidative production, mitochondrial membrane fluidity, homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR), gene and protein expression of adiponectin, and resistin
were evaluated by biochemical, reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and Western blot analysis.
It has been shown that abnormal expression of PPAR[gamma] in fibroblasts induces the expression of a battery of genes including adipokines, leptin, resistin
and the accumulation of triglyceride droplets (Tontonoz and Spiegelman, 2008).
And what it produces is inflammatory signals and abnormal cytokines, or cell-to-cell hormone signal molecules, such as leptin, resistin
, and tumor necrosis factor.
Examples for the latter are adipokines such as resistin
No cross reactivity has been observed for human leptin, leptin receptor and resistin
at 100 ng/ mL.
In addition to NT-proBNP, plasma samples were measured for insulin, leptin, resistin
, interleukin-6, free fatty acids, oxidized LDL cholesterol, creatinine, Hb A1c, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule 1 in a core laboratory certified by the National, Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute/CDC and Prevention Lipid Standardization Program.
Levels of four proteins secreted by adipose tissue - chemerin, resistin
, visfatin and omentin-1 - were also measured in plasma and in subcutaneous fat samples from gluteal tissue.
