Fatty acids have been shown to be involved in the development of insulin resistance associated with obesity. We used sucrose loading in rats to analyze changes in fatty acid composition in the progression of obesity and the related metabolic disorder. Although rats fed a sucrose diet for 4 weeks had body weights similar to those of control animals, their visceral fat pads were significantly larger, and serum triglyceride levels were higher; however, neither plasma glucose nor insulin levels… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Dietary n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids modify fatty acid composition in hepatic and abdominal adipose tissue of sucrose-induced obese rats

It is concluded that in sucrose-induced obese rats, consumption of dietary fish oil had beneficial effects on the metabolic syndrome and that such effects would be conditioned by the changes in the n-3 PUFAs composition in hepatic and adipose tissues.

Dietary combination of sucrose and linoleic acid causes skeletal muscle metabolic abnormalities in Zucker fatty rats through specific modification of fatty acid composition

It is concluded that the dietary combination of sucrose and linoleic acid primarily induces metabolic disorders in skeletal muscle through increases in arachidonic acid and endoplasmic reticulum stress, in advance of systemic metabolic disorders.

Arachidonic Acid Can Significantly Prevent Early Insulin Resistance Induced by a High-Fat Diet

AA can significantly prevent whole-body insulin resistance induced by a high-fat diet, as well as accompanied HGO disturbance in the overnight fasting state, but not thoroughly.

Valine Supplementation Does Not Reduce Lipid Accumulation and Improve Insulin Sensitivity in Mice Fed High-Fat Diet

Valine supplementation did not suppress lipid deposition and metabolic disorders in mice, which provides a new understanding for BCAAs in the modulation of lipid metabolism.

Palatinose and oleic acid act together to prevent pancreatic islet disruption in nondiabetic obese Zucker rats.

Findings suggest that pancreatic islets may be initial sites that translate the effects of different combinations of dietary carbohydrates and fats into metabolic changes in rats induced by certain combinations of carbohydrates and fatty acids.

Black soybean extract reduces fatty acid contents in subcutaneous, but not in visceral adipose triglyceride in high-fat fed rats

Compared fatty acid composition in visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissues of high-fat fed (HFF) rats and BS administered HFF rats, black soybean administration for 6 weeks influenced neither body nor adipose tissue weights, blood glucose, plasma insulin levels, or insulin sensitivity.

Anti-Obesity Effect of Lactobacillus gasseri BNR17 in High-Sucrose Diet-Induced Obese Mice

The results suggest that the anti-obesity actions of L. gasseri BNR17 can be attributed to elevated expression of fatty acid oxidation-related genes and reduced levels of leptin and GLUT4 and reduced insulin levels.

The effect of N-stearoylethanolamine on plasma lipid composition in rats with experimental insulin resistance.

The results showed the restoration of plasma lipid profile under NSE administration in rats with obesity-induced IR, suggesting that the NSE actions may play a significant role in the prevention of IR-associated complications.

Intramuscular adipocyte and fatty acid differences between high‐fat and control rabbit groups subject to a restricted diet

Weight loss due to a restricted diet leads to an increase in unsaturated fatty acids in the femoral muscle, indicating that it reduces obesity symptoms and it may improve meat quality in rabbit.



Effect of Dietary Fish Oil on Insulin Sensitivity and Metabolic Fate of Glucose in the Skeletal Muscle of Normal Rats

The results show that dietary fish oil decreases plasma insulin levels without alteration in glucose homeostasis (at baseline) and the observed enhancement in whole body glucose utilization during clamping suggests an increased peripheral insulin sensitivity.

Improvement of glucose and lipid metabolism associated with selective reduction of intra-abdominal visceral fat in premenopausal women with visceral fat obesity.

Analysis of fat distribution by CT scanning demonstrated that visceral fat decreased to a greater extent than abdominal subcutaneous fat, which was particularly evident in VFO patients, and partial correlation analyses demonstrated that the metabolic improvements were associated with changes in visceral abdominal fat after control for changes in total adipose tissue volume.

Serum phospholipid fatty acid composition and insulin action in type 2 diabetic patients

The hypothesis that changes in FA composition may play a role in modulating insulin action in peripheral tissues, but cannot explain the insulin resistance (IR) in DM2 patients is supported.

The relation between insulin sensitivity and the fatty-acid composition of skeletal-muscle phospholipids.

BACKGROUND Insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia are features of obesity, non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and other disorders. Skeletal muscle is a major site of insulin action, and

Free fatty acid-induced insulin resistance is associated with activation of protein kinase C theta and alterations in the insulin signaling cascade.

It is concluded that acute elevations of plasma FFA levels for 5 h induce skeletal muscle insulin resistance in vivo via a reduction in insulin-stimulated muscle glycogen synthesis and glucose oxidation that can be attributed to reduced glucose transport activity.

Uncoupling of Obesity from Insulin Resistance Through a Targeted Mutation in aP2, the Adipocyte Fatty Acid Binding Protein

Results indicate that aP2 is central to the pathway that links obesity to insulin resistance, possibly by linking fatty acid metabolism to expression of TNF-α.

The Risk to Develop NIDDM Is Related to the Fatty Acid Composition of the Serum Cholesterol Esters

The increased risk to develop non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus among 50-year-old men during a 10-year follow-up period was related to the fatty acid composition of their serum cholesterol esters.
