The Spontaneously Diabetic Torii (SDT) fatty rat, established by introducing the fa allele of the Zucker fatty rat into the SDT rat genome, is a new model of obese type 2 diabetes. The SDT-fa/fa (SDT fatty) rat shows overt obesity, and hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia are observed at a young age as compared with the SDT-+/+ (SDT normal) rat. However, the(More)
Monoacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 (MGAT2) plays an important role in intestinal fat absorption. We discovered the novel MGAT2 inhibitor, JTP-103237, and evaluated its pharmacological profile. JTP-103237 selectively inhibited MGAT2 without remarkable species differences and reduced absorbed lipids in circulation. After lipid administration, JTP-103237(More)
We report in this paper that a novel small molecule, JTZ-132, induced growth and differentiation of megakaryocytic progenitor cells and improved thrombocytopenia in myelosuppressed mice. JTZ-132 stimulated proliferation of UT-7/TPO cells, a cell line highly sensitive to thrombopoietin (TPO), and exhibited full efficacy comparable to TPO with an approximate(More)
The Spontaneously Diabetic Torii (SDT) rat is a new model for non-obese type 2 diabetes. In the present study, we investigated changes in insulin secretion from the pancreas of male SDT rats aged 8, 16, and 24 weeks in order to analyze pancreatic function. An analysis of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) in isolated islets showed a marked(More)
Some nutrients, such as carbohydrate, fat and protein, are known to stimulate satiety. However, the effect of sn-2-monoacylglycerol (2-MG), one of the digestive products of triglycerides, on food intake is still unclear. In the present study, the effects of 2-MG on food intake and diarrhea were evaluated and compared with long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) in(More)
