The effects of hyper- and hypothyroidism on sympathetic nervous system activity and energy expenditure are well recognized. The impact of altered sympathetic nervous system activity on energy expenditure and thyroid hormone metabolism has not been well studied. We investigated the effects of orally administered terbutaline sulfate, a beta 2-receptor agonist (5 mg, three times per day for 2 weeks), on the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, energy expenditure, and thyroid hormone… Expand
Attenuation of haemodynamic, metabolic and energy expenditure responses to isoproterenol in patients with hypertension
The concept that sympathetic overactivity, via down-regulation of β-adrenoceptor-mediated thermogenic responses, may facilitate the development of obesity in hypertension is supported. Expand
Short-term sympathoadrenal inhibition augments the thermogenic response to beta-adrenergic receptor stimulation.
It is demonstrated that in sedentary humans, short-term inhibition of sympathoadrenal activity increases the thermogenic response to beta-AR stimulation, an important determinant of EE and hence energy balance. Expand
Melanocortin Signalling and the Regulation of Blood Pressure in Human Obesity
It was recently demonstrated that humans with MC4R deficiency have lower blood pressure, less hypertension, lower 24‐h urinary catecholamine excretion, lower resting heart rate and attenuated insulin‐mediated sympathetic activation compared to equally‐obese humans. Expand
Regulation of the nuclear hormone receptor nur77 in muscle: influence of exercise-activated pathways in vitro and obesity in vivo.
The results suggest adrenergic stimulation as the most important stimulus for nur77 expression and point to a significant role for this transcription factor in adaptive changes in muscle after exercise and in insulin resistant states. Expand
Thermogenic and lipolytic effect of yohimbine in the dog
The present work indicates that thermogenesis and lipid mobilization are enhanced during fasting in the dog by α2‐adrenoceptor blockade and the lipid mobilization plus the action on thermogenesis observed after yohimbine draw attention to the putative interest ofα2‐antagonists in the pharmacological treatment of obesity during restricted calorie intake.

Effects of short-term oral salbutamol administration on exercise endurance and metabolism.
From data, short-term Sal intake did appear to improve performance during intense submaximal exercise with concomitant increase in substrate availability and utilization, but the exact mechanisms involved need further investigation. Expand
Loss of Early Phase of Insulin Release in Humans Impairs Glucose Tolerance and Blunts Thermic Effect of Glucose
Surprisingly, it is found that glucose-induced thermogenesis was reduced in association with loss of the early phase of insulin release and this could provide a possible mechanism that could lead eventually to obesity and diabetes. Expand
Modification of the thermogenic effect of acutely inhaled salbutamol by chronic inhalation in normal subjects.
Regular treatment with inhaled salbutamol (800 micrograms/day) does not cause a sustained increase in resting metabolic rate but prevents the increase in VO2 that occurs after acute inhalations in normal subjects. Expand
The Small Polyphenolic Molecule Kaempferol Increases Cellular Energy Expenditure and Thyroid Hormone Activation
A novel mechanism by which a xenobiotic-activated pathway can regulate metabolically important genes as well as thyroid hormone activation is document and thus may influence metabolic control in humans. Expand
The influence of 24 h of sleep deprivation on the blood serum concentration of aldosterone, thyrotropine, triiodthy­ ronine, and thyroxine was studied in healthy calves. Expand
