In the previous proteomic study of human placenta, transmembrane 7 superfamily member 1 (TM7SF1) was found enriched in lysosome compartments. TM7SF1 encodes a 399-amino acid protein with a calculated molecular mass of 45 kDa. Bioinformatic analysis of its amino acid sequence showed that it is a multipass transmembrane protein containing a potential(More)

BACKGROUND Apolipoprotein M (apoM) concentrations were decreased in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). ApoM was selectively expressed in renal tubular epithelial cells. We investigated the changes in plasma apoM concentrations in diabetic nephropathy (DN) patients and the potential of apoM as a biomarker of DN. METHODS A total of 96 DN patients and 100 age-(More)
Abnormal insulin secretion results in impaired glucose tolerance and is one of the causal factors in the etiology of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Sidt2, a lysosomal integral membrane protein, plays a critical role in insulin secretion. Here, we further investigate its regulation in insulin secretion. We show that Sidt2(-/-) mice exhibit weight loss, decreased(More)
Endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) is correlated with insulin resistance and islet‑cell function. In the present study, the sub‑cellular localization and role of ER protein 29 (Erp29) were investigated in an in vitro ERS model of islet beta cells. The INS‑1 islet cell line was treated with various concentrations of tunicamycin to establish the ERS model.(More)
Apolipoprotein M (apoM) is mainly enriched in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and is slightly present in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. apoM is involved in HDL formation and HDL-mediated reverse cholesterol transport. apoM is also associated with hyperlipidaemia and type 2 diabetes mellitus(More)
Sidt2 is a newly discovered lysosomal membrane protein that is closely related to glucose metabolism. In the present study, we found that Sidt2 is also closely related to lipid metabolism. Gradual increases in serum triglyceride (TG) and free fatty acid, as well as elevated aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase levels were observed in Sidt2(-/-)(More)
In vivo insulin secretion is predominantly affected by blood glucose concentration, blood concentration of amino acids, gastrointestinal hormones and free nerve functional status, in addition to other factors. Insulin is one of the most important hormones in the body, and its secretion is precisely controlled by nutrients, neurotransmitters and hormones.(More)
