Pharmacological evaluation of adipose dysfunction via 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 in the development of diabetes in diet-induced obese mice with cortisone pellet implantation.

Signals from intracellular glucocorticoids (GCs) via 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) in adipose tissues have been reported to serve as amplifiers leading to deterioration of glucose metabolism associated with obesity. To elucidate adipose dysfunction via 11β-HSD1 activation in the development of obesity-related diabetes, we established… CONTINUE READING
