The mammalian proglucagon gene is expressed in pancreatic islet A-cells, intestinal L-cells, and select neurons of the brain, where posttranslational processing results in the liberation of a unique profile of peptides. Despite the importance of proglucagon-derived peptides in human biology, little is known about the regulation of the human gene, as the rat(More)
O besity and associated type 2 diabetes mellitus are the emerging epidemic of this new century. Identifying the key mechanism of the pathophysiology offers unique insights into potential prevention and therapy. One of the classic animal models of obesity and insulin resistance has been the ob/ob mouse. Zhang et al 1 set the scientific world a-buzz in 1994(More)
The glucagon-like peptides (GLPs) are synthesized and secreted in a nutrient-dependent manner in rodents; however, the factors regulating human GLP-1 and GLP-2 biosynthesis remain unclear. To understand how nutrients regulate human proglucagon gene expression, we studied the expression of a human proglucagon promoter-growth hormone (GH) transgene in 1.6(More)
—Inflammatory response and cytokine elaboration are particularly active after myocardial infarction and contribute to cardiac remodeling and eventual host outcome. The triggers of cytokine release in the acute postinfarction period include mechanical deformation, ischemic stimulus, reactive oxygen species (ROS), and cytokine self-amplification pathways.(More)
The posture recognition system based on Kinect sensor system is developed in this paper. The proposed posture recognition system contains semaphore signals, Kinect 3D sensor system, and self-organizing maps algorithm (SOM). The human-robot interaction is an intuitive and easy operation by posture recognition. However, there are not uniform postures to be a(More)
