OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of avian chondroitin sulfate (CS) on interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta)-induced expression of genes related to catabolic, anabolic and inflammatory aspects in chondrocytes cultured in hypoxic alginate beads. DESIGN Articular chondrocytes from bovine metacarpal joint were isolated and cultured in alginate beads, using low oxygen(More)
OBJECTIVE Preadipocyte cell lines present a cell model with which to understand the physiopathological mechanisms underlying lipodystrophy syndrome, a common complication observed in patients treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) that, in general, is associated with the use of protease inhibitors (PI) and nucleoside reverse transcriptase(More)
In hepatocytes, the amount of the Spot 14 (S14) protein is closely related to the full expression of enzymes involved in the glycolytic and lipogenic pathways. In the present study we address the role played by this protein in the control of transcription of the L-type pyruvate kinase (L-PK) gene in primary hepatocytes. We show that human S14, which by(More)
Protease inhibitor treatment strongly diminishes mortality in HIV-infected patients. This treatment has also been associated with lipodystrophy and has been shown to alter adipocyte differentiation. The protease inhibitor nelfinavir has been indirectly implicated in the appearance and development of lipodystrophic syndrome, as well as in adipocyte cell(More)
The Na,K-ATPase is a heterodimer composed of an alpha-catalytic and a beta-glycoprotein subunit. At present, three different alpha-polypeptides (alpha1, alpha2, alpha3) and two distinct beta-isoforms (beta1 and beta2) have been detected in human heart. The aim of the present study was to determine whether or not the beta3-isoform of the Na,K-ATPase can be(More)
