Due to misbalanced energy surplus and expenditure, obesity has become a common chronic disorder that is highly associated with many metabolic diseases. Pu-erh tea, a traditional Chinese beverage, has been believed to have numerous health benefits, such as anti-obesity. However, the underlying mechanisms of its anti-obesity effect are yet to be understood. Here, we take the advantages of transcriptional profile by RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) to view the global gene expression of Pu-erh tea. The… Expand

Pu-Erh Tea Down-Regulates Sterol Regulatory Element-Binding Protein and Stearyol-CoA Desaturase to Reduce Fat Storage in Caenorhaditis elegans
PTE down-regulates the expression of the master fat regulator SBP-1, a homologue of sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP) and its target stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD), a key enzyme in fat biosynthesis, leading to an increased ratio of stearic acid to oleic acid and subsequently decreased fat storage.

Pu-erh tea extract ameliorates high-fat diet-induced nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and insulin resistance by modulating hepatic IL-6/STAT3 signaling in mice
PTE ameliorates hepatic lipid metabolism, inflammation, and insulin resistance in mice with HFD-induced NASH, presumably by modulating hepatic IL-6/STAT3 signaling. Expand
Reversible reprotoxic effects of manganese through DAF-16 transcription factor activation and vitellogenin downregulation in Caenorhabditis elegans.
Combined, these data suggest that the delay in egg-production is likely regulated by DAF-16 and followed by the inhibition of VIT transport activity, and further studies are needed to clarify the mechanisms associated with Mn-induced D AF-16 activation. Expand
Pu-erh Tea Suppresses Diet-Induced Body Fat Accumulation in C57BL/6J Mice by Down-Regulating SREBP-1c and Related Molecules
Findings indicate that PTE reduced lipogenesis by down-regulating SREBP-1c and related molecules, leading to the suppression of body fat accumulation in mice fed on a high-fat diet. Expand
Proteomic analysis of the inhibitory effect of epigallocatechin gallate on lipid accumulation in human HepG2 cells
The proteomic analysis hypothesized that EGCG reduced cellular lipid accumulation in FFA-induced HepG2 cells through the activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) resulting from the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Expand
The Role of Nuclear Receptor NHR-64 in Fat Storage Regulation in Caenorhabditis elegans
It is found that inactivation of a C. elegans HNF4 homologue nhr-64 by RNA interference by RNAi suppresses low fat stores in stearoyl-CoA desaturase-deficient fat-6;fat-7 double mutants and sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP) sbp-1 mutants. Expand
Transcriptome Profiles Using Next-Generation Sequencing Reveal Liver Changes in the Early Stage of Diabetes in Tree Shrew (Tupaia belangeri chinensis)
It is suggested that STZ induces hyperglycemia in tree shrew and that hyperglyCEmia induced oxidative stress led to high expression of aldose reductase, inflammation, and even cell death in liver tissues during the early stage of diabetes. Expand
Pu-erh Tea Inhibits Tumor Cell Growth by Down-Regulating Mutant p53
Light is shed on the application of Pu-erh tea as an anti-tumor agent with low side effects and the possible mechanism for Pu- erh tea action, which explained its selectivity in inhibiting tumor cells without affecting wild type cells is provided. Expand
Iron Overload Coordinately Promotes Ferritin Expression and Fat Accumulation in Caenorhabditis elegans
A completely novel pathway in which sgk-1 plays a central role to synergistically regulate iron and lipid homeostasis is revealed, offering not only experimental evidence supporting a previously unverified link between iron and Obesity, but also novel insights into the pathogenesis of iron and obesity-related human metabolic diseases.

Ganoderma lucidum reduces obesity in mice by modulating the composition of the gut microbiota
The results indicate that G. lucidum and its high molecular weight polysaccharides may be used as prebiotic agents to prevent gut dysbiosis and obesity-related metabolic disorders in obese individuals. Expand
