Effect of palatable hyperlipidic diet on lipid metabolism of sedentary and exercised rats.
OBJECTIVE The present study was designed to examine 1) whether continuous feeding with a palatable hyperlipidic diet and cycling this diet with chow diet would affect lipid and carbohydrateExpand

Selective impairment of insulin signalling in the hypothalamus of obese Zucker rats
Aim/hypothesisBy acting in the brain, insulin suppresses food intake. However, little is known with regard to insulin signalling in the hypothalamus in insulin-resistant states.MethodsWesternExpand

Supplementing alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) and vitamin D3 in high fat diet decrease IL-6 production in murine epididymal adipose tissue and 3T3-L1 adipocytes following LPS stimulation
BackgroundIt is well known that high fat diets (HFDs) induce obesity and an increase in proinflammatory adipokines. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is considered the major inflammatory mediator in obesity.Expand

Effects of systemic nicotine on serotonin release in rat brain
We used in vivo microdialysis to examine the acute effects of systemically administered nicotine (0.8-8.0 mg/kg, s.c.) on extracellular levels of serotonin (5-HT) in the frontal cortex of awake ratsExpand

Interaction between Leptin and Insulin Signaling Pathways Differentially Affects JAK-STAT and PI 3-Kinase-Mediated Signaling in Rat Liver
Abstract Chronic leptin treatment markedly enhances the effect of insulin on hepatic glucose production unproportionally with respect to body weight loss and increased insulin sensitivity. In theExpand

Effects of different fatty acids and dietary lipids on adiponectin gene expression in 3T3-L1 cells and C57BL/6J mice adipose tissue
Obesity is positively correlated to dietary lipid intake, and the type of lipid may play a causal role in the development of obesity-related pathologies. A major protein secreted by adipose tissue isExpand

Yerba mate extract (Ilex paraguariensis) attenuates both central and peripheral inflammatory effects of diet-induced obesity in rats.
To clarify the effects of natural dietary components on the metabolic consequences of obesity, we examined the effects of yerba mate extract Ilex paraguariensis on both central and peripheralExpand

Decaffeinated green tea extract rich in epigallocatechin-3-gallate prevents fatty liver disease by increased activities of mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes in diet-induced obesity mice.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease has been considered the hepatic manifestation of obesity. It is unclear whether supplementation with green tea extract rich in epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG)Expand

Lipotoxicity: Effects of Dietary Saturated and Transfatty Acids
The ingestion of excessive amounts of saturated fatty acids (SFAs) and transfatty acids (TFAs) is considered to be a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, andExpand

Glycemic response to stress stimulation by ether exposure in adrenalectomized rats
Stress was induced by short-term ether exposure (2 min) and tail vein puncture in normal (SO), adrenodemedullated (ADM), and adrenalectomized (ADR) rats. In ADM and SO rats stress provoked aExpand
