OBJECTIVES This study aimed to identify circulating microRNA (miRNA) signatures in knee synovial fluid (SF) from early-stage and late-stage knee osteoarthritis (OA) patients. METHODS miRNAs were screened by miRNA-PCR-arrays and validated by Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) in SF from early-stage (Kellgren-Lawrence (KL): Grade:(More)
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), is the form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease posing risk to progress into serious long term complications. Human and pre-clinical models implicate cellular cholesterol dysregulation playing important role in its development. Mouse model studies suggest synergism between dietary cholesterol and fat in contributing to(More)
Our laboratory previously reported that lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) and LDL receptor double knock-out mice (Ldlr(-/-)xLcat(-/-) or DKO) spontaneously develop functioning ectopic brown adipose tissue (BAT) in skeletal muscle, putatively contributing to protection from the diet-induced obesity phenotype. Here we further investigated their(More)
