We proposed that inhibition of mitochondrial adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT) by long chain acyl-CoA (LCAC) underlies the mechanism associating obesity and type 2 diabetes. Here we test that after long-term exposure to a high-fat diet (HFD): (i) there is no adaptation of the mitochondrial compartment that would hinder such ANT inhibition, and (ii) ANT(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Changes in cardiac substrate utilisation leading to altered energy metabolism may underlie the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy. We studied cardiomyocyte substrate uptake and utilisation and the role of the fatty acid translocase CD36 in relation to in vivo cardiac function in rats fed a high-fat diet (HFD). METHODS Rats were exposed(More)
Because of its close genetic and physiological similarities to humans, as well as the ease with which its genome can be manipulated, the mouse became the mammalian model of choice for genetic research. A first step in describing the potential impact of a given genetic manipulation is the characterization of general morphology. The use of 3– dimensional(More)
