Appropriate differentiation capacity of adipose tissue significantly affects its ability to store lipids and to protect nonadipose tissues against lipid spillover and development of insulin resistance. Preadipocyte factor-1 (Pref-1) is an important negative regulator of preadipocyte differentiation. The aim of our study was to explore the changes in(More)
Subclinical inflammation that primarily arises in adipose tissue as a result of its excessive infiltration by immunocompetent cells represents one of the typical etiopathogenetic mechanisms underlying the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Immunocompetent cells together with adipocytes are a major source of proinflammatory cytokines(More)
Objective:Recent studies linked circulating pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) to obesity-associated insulin resistance, but the main source of circulating PEDF is unknown. We aimed to investigate liver and adipose tissue PEDF gene expression in association with obesity and insulin resistance.Design, subjects and methods:Three (two cross-sectional and(More)
The aim of our study was to explore the effects of regular aerobic exercise on anthropometric, biochemical and hormonal parameters and mRNA expression of selected factors involved in metabolic regulations in subcutaneous adipose tissue of patients with obesity. Fifteen obese women with arterial hypertension underwent a three-month exercise program(More)
We explored serum concentrations and mRNA expression of insulin-like-growth factor-1 (IGF-1) axis components in subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT) and peripheral monocytes (PM) of 18 healthy females, 11 obese non-diabetic females (OB) and 13 obese women with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) examined at baseline and after very-low-calorie diet (VLCD). T2DM women had(More)
We explored the effect of chronically elevated circulating levels of growth hormone (GH)/insulin-like-growth-factor-1 (IGF-1) on mRNA expression of GH/IGF-1/insulin axis components and p85alpha subunit of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (p85alpha) in subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT) of patients with active acromegaly and compared these findings with healthy(More)
