AIM NYGGF4 is a novel gene that is abundantly expressed in the adipose tissue of obese patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of NYGGF4 on basal and insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes and to understand the underlying mechanisms. METHODS 3T3-L1 preadipocytes transfected with either an empty expression(More)
Obesity is a multifactorial disease resulting from interactions between susceptibility genes, psychosocial, and environmental factors. However, it is becoming evident that interindividual differences in obesity susceptibility depend also on epigenetic factors, although the mechanisms have not been fully elucidated. We have undertaken a genome-wide analysis(More)
Obesity has become a global public health problem associated with complications including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and several cancers. Adipocyte differentiation (adipogenesis) plays an important role in obesity and energy homeostasis. Adipose tissue secretes multiple cytokines and adipokines which can cause the complications of obesity,(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs involved in the regulation of gene expression. MiR-1908 is a recently identified miRNA that is highly expressed in human adipocytes. However, it is not known what role of miR-1908 is involved in the regulation of human adipocytes. In this study, we demonstrate that the level of miR-1908 increases during the(More)
We have undertaken cDNA microarrays to identify differentially expressed genes in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of spontaneously hypertensive-rat (SHR), a rodent model of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) versus control Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats. The analysis of the gene expression profiles indicated that 57 genes were up-regulated and 97 genes(More)
Our data in the previous report demonstrated that C10orf116 (AFRO) is an adipocyte lineage-specific nuclear factor that can modulate the master adipogenesis transcription factors early during differentiation. However, more precise functional properties of this gene need to be clarified and await further investigation. Therefore, in this study, we performed(More)
BACKGROUND Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a pervasive neurobehavioral disorder affecting approximately 5% of children and adolescents and 3% of adults, and the prefrontal cortex (PFC) may play the most critical role in the expression of ADHD. Converging previous studies indicate a potential role of Homer--a scaffolding protein family(More)
