The glucagon-like peptides (GLP-1 and GLP-2) are processed from the proglucagon polypeptide and secreted in equimolar amounts but have opposite effects on chylomicron (CM) production, with GLP-1 significantly reducing and GLP-2 increasing postprandial chylomicronemia. In the current study, we evaluated the apparent paradoxical roles of GLP-1 and GLP-2 under(More)
A sucrose-rich diet (SRD), compared with a starch diet, induces time-dependent metabolic disorders and insulin resistance with hypertriglyceridemia, similar to type 2 diabetes. In this study, we examined the effect of SRD, after 8 mo, on nuclear receptors peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPARalpha), and liver X receptor-alpha (LXRalpha),(More)
A sucrose-rich diet (SRD) induces insulin resistance and dyslipidemia with impaired hepatic glucose production and gluconeogenesis, accompanied by altered post-receptor insulin signaling steps. The aim of this study was to examine the effectiveness of fish oil (FO) to reverse or improve the impaired hepatic glucose metabolism once installed in rats fed 8(More)
