OBJECTIVE To determine if and how growth hormone (GH) signaling is involved in energy metabolism. DESIGN We used human embryonic kidney TSA201 cells, human H-EMC-SS chondrosarcoma cells, rat L6 skeletal muscle cells, and murine C2C12 skeletal muscle myoblasts to investigate GH-induced expression of uncoupling protein2 (UCP2) to the GHR/JAK/STAT5 pathway(More)
The impact of vitamin D3 (VD3) on obesity has been reported in the past. Our study was aimed at investigating the possible mechanisms by which VD3 affects obesity induced by a high fat diet. Eight-week-old C57BL/6 J male mice were fed a normal- or high-fat diet for 9 weeks and were treated with a gavage of vehicle (corn oil) or cholecalciferol (50 μg/kg,(More)
In order to examine the correlation between activity and hydrophilicity of the side chain of sodium 3-[4-(4-chlorobenzenesulfonylamino)butyl]-6-isopropylazulene -1-sulfonate (KT2-962), a non-prostanoid TXA2/PGH2 receptor antagonist, one or two hydroxyl groups were introduced into the isopropyl moiety. A series of 6-hydroxylated-isopropylazulenes were(More)
The active form of vitamin D3 (1α,25(OH)2D3, also known as calcitriol) controls the expression of target genes via the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Vitamin D-dependent rickets type II (VDDRII) is a congenital disease caused by inactivating mutations in the VDR The condition is treated with high doses of calcitriol, but the therapeutic effects of other(More)
