FABP4

A gene on chromosome 8q21 that encodes a lipid transport protein in adipocytes which plays a role in intracellular transport of long-chain fatty acids and retinoic acids, delivering them to their cognate receptors in the nucleus.

Methods: Cell viability, glucose uptake, cytoplasmic triglyceride droplets, triglycerides quantification, gene transcription factors such as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor [gamma] (PPAR[gamma]) and adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (aP2) and intracellular [Ca.sup.2+] levels were determined in pre-adipocytes and adipocytes of 3T3-L1 cells.
Bizim calismamizda ayak bilegi guc grafiklerinde absorbsiyon bolumunde (Ap1), ayak bilegi guc uretimi bolumu (Ap2) ile basma fazindaki kalca ekstansor guc uretimi (Hp1) ve ilk salinim fazindaki kalca f leksor guc uretiminde (Hp3); Oeffinger ve ark.nin [10] calismasindan farkli olarak gruplar arasinda farklilik saptanmadi.
The expression of several proteins associated with adipocyte differentiation such as PPAR-[gamma], C/EBP[alpha], SREBP-1c, FAS, and aP2 were analyzed to determine the molecular mechanism, at the level of protein production, which is the final product of gene expression and process, governing how increasing concentrations of AGN enhances adipocyte differentiation.
Note that, (9)-(10) provide the AP1 and the AP2 LOS angles in the absence of pitch, roll, and yaw angles.
For the GR transcription assays, experiments were performed in Cos-7 cells, which were transfected as described above with either 125 ng 3X-GRE-luc (GR-responsive element) or 125 ng aP2-luc (plasmid containing the aP2 promoter region upstream of luciferase (Atlas et al.
They proposed that a new structure of the same volume and shape be erected beside the AP2, one specifically designed to house the required galleries, cinema, offices, educational spaces, and art storage.
The significance of the difference of AP2 derived longitudinal strain rate in the diabetic and control group at rest (-1.94 [+ or -] 1.14 versus -1.54 [+ or -] 0.25 [s.sup.-1]) is limited by the nonnormal distribution of the parameters.

It is critical that the STA3 may be polled by API and respond to the polling with CTS sending to API, the action of which will lead to STA4 and AP2 set NAV to avoid interference.
The activation of C/EBP[alpha] and PPAR[gamma] leads to terminal differentiation through their subsequent transactivation of adipocyte-marker genes, such as adiponectin, lipoprotein lipase (LPL), fatty acid-binding protein 2 (aP2), and fatty acid synthase (FAS), all of which are involved in lipid metabolism [15].

Three arm propulsion phases were determined: first phase--API starts from the beginning of the arm movement toward the outside with the hands twisted out in pro-nation, and lasts until the elbows are bent outwards and move back; second phase--AP2 begins with the end of the AP1 phase with the trough arm pull, a backward movement leading to the deepest immersion of the fingertips, which are moving inward; third phase--AP3 starts at the end of the AP2 phase and lasts till the beginning of forward hand movement.
