AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a key signaling protein in the regulation of skeletal muscle glucose uptake, but its role in mediating contraction-induced glucose transport is still debated. The effect of contraction on glucose transport is impaired in EDL muscle of transgenic mice expressing a kinase-dead, dominant negative form of the AMPKalpha(2)(More)
The present study investigated the impact of a Lactobacillus rhamnosus CGMCC1.3724 (LPR) supplementation on weight loss and maintenance in obese men and women over 24 weeks. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised trial, each subject consumed two capsules per d of either a placebo or a LPR formulation (1.6 × 10(8) colony-forming units of(More)
We previously demonstrated that low biosynthesis of ω-3 fatty acid-derived proresolution mediators, termed protectins, is associated with an impaired global resolution capacity, inflammation and insulin resistance in obese high-fat diet-fed mice. These findings prompted a more direct study of the therapeutic potential of protectins for the treatment of(More)
UNLABELLED Hepatocyte-specific Shp1 knockout mice (Ptpn6(H-KO)) are protected from hepatic insulin resistance evoked by high-fat diet (HFD) feeding for 8 weeks. Unexpectedly, we report herein that Ptpn6(H-KO) mice fed an HFD for up to 16 weeks are still protected from insulin resistance, but are more prone to hepatic steatosis, as compared with their(More)
