OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2) gene Ala55Val variation and beta(3)-adrenergic-receptor (beta(3)-AR) gene Trp64Arg variation on type 2 diabetes and obesity, as well as the combined effects between the two variations. METHODS The peripheral blood samples of 173 type 2 diabetics, 119 obese persons, and 177 control(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin resistance is an underlying feature of both type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Currently, it is unclear whether nuclear factor (NF)-κB inducing kinase (NIK) plays a role in the development of insulin resistance. The present in vivo study investigated the roles of NIK and IκB kinase α (IKKα) in obesity-induced insulin resistance using(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of bezafibrate on the proliferation and differentiation of osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells, and to determine the signaling pathway underlying the effects. METHODS MC3T3-E1 cells, a mouse osteoblastic cell line, were used. Cell viability and proliferation were examined using MTT assay and colorimetric BrdU incorporation assay,(More)
BACKGROUND Women with a history of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) are at higher risk of future development of diabetes. This study investigated the risk factors associated with early postpartum abnormal glucose regulation (AGR) among Chinese women with a history of GDM. METHODS A total of 186 women with a history of GDM were screened for early(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the additive effects of uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) gene Ala55Val variation and ADR beta(3) gene Trp64Arg variation on the obesity in Chinese Han population. METHODS The UCP2 gene Ala55Val variation and ADR beta(3) gene Trp64Arg variation were examined by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism(PCR-RFLP)(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyzed the role of genetic factors in pathogenesis of acute intermittent porphyria (AIP). METHODS Peripheral blood sample was collected from a Chinese female AIP patients, aged 36, to undergo direct sequencing to analyze all the exons and flanking introns of the porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD) and protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPOX) genes.(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the immunological and genetic factors of common anti-islet autoantibody-negative patients with type 1 diabetes. METHODS Specimens of peripheral blood were collected from 33 common autoantibody (GAD-Ab, IA2-Ab, IAA, TGA and TPO-Ab) negative diabetic patients with new-onset of unprovoked ketosis (or ketoacidosis), and genome DNA was(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss clinical features at diabetic subtype which is apparently caused by a single mutation in the mitochondrial tRNA(Leu(UUR)) gene. METHODS According to WHO criteria of diabetes mellitus (DM), 130 patients with DM and the family history of DM (either NIDDM or IDDM) were screened by using genetic diagnosis. Clinical and laboratory analyses(More)
