Obesity and its associated metabolic syndromes represent a growing global challenge, yet mechanistic understanding of this pathology and current therapeutics are unsatisfactory. We discovered that CD4(+) T lymphocytes, resident in visceral adipose tissue (VAT), control insulin resistance in mice with diet-induced obesity (DIO). Analyses of human tissue(More)
In type 1 diabetes, T cell-mediated death of pancreatic beta cells produces insulin deficiency. However, what attracts or restricts broadly autoreactive lymphocyte pools to the pancreas remains unclear. We report that TRPV1(+) pancreatic sensory neurons control islet inflammation and insulin resistance. Eliminating these neurons in diabetes-prone NOD mice(More)
The etiology of concurrent stenoses of extracranial and intracranial vessels in patients with ischemic stroke is poorly understood, but hereditary factors are believed to be important. We aimed to determine whether genetic polymorphisms affecting homocysteine and lipid metabolism are associated with concurrent stenoses. The genotypes of 191 Han Chinese(More)
The SPEC CINT92 and CFP92 benchmark suites are application-based system benchmarks primarily intended for workstation-class system performance measurements. The SPEC CPU benchmark results are widely disseminated by system vendors and as such have become the de-facto standard for comparing system performance. Recently, many observers have expressed concerns(More)
