OBJECTIVE Long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) contribute to metabolic homeostasis in part via gene regulation. This study's objective was to identify novel LCFA target genes in human skeletal muscle cells (myotubes). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In vitro methods included culture and treatment of human myotubes and C2C12 cells, gene array analysis, real-time(More)
A major reason for the insufficient recovery of function after motor nerve injury are the numerous axonal branches which often re-innervate muscles with completely different functions. We hypothesized that a neutralization of diffusable neurotrophic factors at the lesion site in rats could reduce the branching of transected axons. Following analysis of(More)
Insulin detemir (DET) represents a myristic acid (MA)-coupled insulin derivative with protracted action due to reversible albumin binding. As compared to human insulin (HI), DET provokes no or only minor body weight gain in vivo. Therefore, we compared DET's and HI's adipogenic effects. 3T3-L1 preadipocytes were differentiated with 5 nmol/l HI, 5 nmol/l DET(More)
Muscle lipid oxidation is stimulated by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) δ or adiponectin receptor signalling. We studied human myocyte expression of the PPARδ and adiponectin receptor genes and their relationship to lipid parameters of the donors. The mRNA levels of the three adiponectin receptors, AdipoR1, AdipoR2, and T-cadherin, were(More)
