Enhanced carbon tetrachloride-induced liver fibrosis in mice lacking adiponectin.
TLDR
The findings indicate that adiponectin attenuates liver fibrosis and could be a novel approach in its prevention.
Hypoadiponectinemia accelerates hepatic tumor formation in a nonalcoholic steatohepatitis mouse model.
TLDR
It is indicated that lack of adiponectin enhances the progression of hepatic steatosis, fibrosis, and hepatic tumor formation in an animal model of NASH.
Fucosylation Is a Promising Target for Cancer Diagnosis and Therapy
TLDR
The role of fucosylated haptoglobin as a cancer biomarker is described, and the possible biological role in cancer development is discussed.
Dextran Sodium Sulfate Inhibition of Real‐Time Polymerase Chain Reaction Amplification: A Poly‐A Purification Solution
TLDR
DSS is a potent inhibitor of real‐time qPCR amplification and interferes with tissue‐specific gene expression analysis in DSS‐exposed mice, which complicates gene expressionAnalysis.
Adiponectin prevents progression of steatohepatitis in mice by regulating oxidative stress and Kupffer cell phenotype polarization
TLDR
Examination of the effects of adiponectin on steatohepatitis using adip onectin‐knockout (KO) mice and adenovirus‐mediated adiponECTin expression system found no effect on NASH.
New Biological Function of Bovine α-Lactalbumin: Protective Effect against Ethanol- and Stress-induced Gastric Mucosal Injury in Rats
TLDR
Results indicate that α-LA has marked antiulcer activity as an active component of cow’s milk protein, and suggest thatα-LA intake may serve to protect against gastric mucosal injury, in part through endogenous prostaglandin synthesis.
Drosophila growth-blocking peptide-like factor mediates acute immune reactions during infectious and non-infectious stress
TLDR
It is demonstrated that growth-blocking peptide (GBP) is a potent cytokine that regulates stressor-induced AMP expression in insects and mediates acute innate immune reactions under various stresses, regardless of whether they are infectious or non-infectious.
Identification of an inducible factor secreted by pancreatic cancer cell lines that stimulates the production of fucosylated haptoglobin in hepatoma cells.
TLDR
It is found that interleukin 6 (IL6) expressed in pancreatic cancer is a factor that induces the haptoglobin production, using a neutralizing antibody for IL6.
Enhanced expression of stress-responsive cytokine-like gene retards insect larval growth.
TLDR
It is reasonable to conclude that stress-induced elevation of the peptide gene expression highly correlates with reduced feeding activities and growth retardation of the host larvae parasitized by M. manilae and is named this peptide stress-responsive peptide (SRP).
Delayed liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy in adiponectin knockout mice.
TLDR
The expression levels of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) alpha and carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 (CPT-1), a key enzyme in mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation, were decreased in adiponectin KO mice, suggesting possible contribution of altered fat metabolism to these phenomena.
