The pro-inflammatory profile of M1 macrophage accumulation in adipose tissue is a central event leading to the metabolic complications of obesity. However, the mechanisms by which M1 macrophages are enriched in adipose tissue during weight gain remain incompletely understood. Here, we investigated the effects of adipocyte-derived microvesicles (ADM) on(More)
Pancreatic β-cell death or dysfunction mediated by oxidative stress underlies the development and progression of diabetes mellitus (DM). In this study, we evaluated the effect of lentinan (LNT), an active ingredient purified from the bodies of Lentinus edodes, on pancreatic β-cell apoptosis and dysfunction caused by streptozotocin (STZ) and the possible(More)
The presenilin-mediated Notch1 cleavage pathway plays a critical role in controlling pancreatic beta cell fate and survival. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of Notch1 activation in glucotoxicity-induced beta cell impairment and the contributions of miR-375, miR-30a, and miR-34a to this pathway. We found that the protein levels of(More)
