The particles, discovered in mice, may activate immune function and could play a role in preventing metabolic disorders Researchers have discovered that fat tissue releases a lipid-filled particle that has a role in immune function and metabolism. The study, in mice, was published online in the journal Science. Why it matters Obesity appears to activate […]Continue Reading ...
The NanoBioCel group of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country has developed some lipid vesicles that have been shown to transfer genetic material efficiently and viably In a piece of research conducted in collaboration, the NanoBioCel group of the UPV/EHU’s Faculty of Pharmacy, and the University of Elche have designed some niosomes, which are lipid […]Continue Reading ...
August 9, 2018 As anyone who has experienced an annoying alternation between dry and watery eyes can confirm, tears alone aren’t enough to keep the eye from drying out. A microscopically thin film of oils known as the tear film lipid layer is key to preventing the tear film from evaporating. In this month’s issue […]Continue Reading ...
June 14, 2018 Brown tissue whitening causes cell death, inflammation There’s more than one type of fat cell. Besides the white fat that stores triglycerides in lipid droplets in preparation for lean times later, mammals also have heat-generating brown fat, which acts more like a radiator than a storage closet. Brown fat cells are smaller, […]Continue Reading ...
April 10, 2018 Intestinal bacteria have attracted recent attention since they were discovered to influence various physiological functions and diseases in humans. Researchers from Kumamoto University in Japan analyzing the influence of changes in intestinal bacteria on sugar and lipid metabolism have found that secondary bile acids produced by the bacteria can influence blood glucose […]Continue Reading ...
April 17, 2017 Scientists have known the gene accountable for producing acylceramide, the important thing lipid in forming the outside barrier that protects us from pathogens, allergens and different destructive elements. This discovering may end up a very powerful in creating drugs for treating atopic dermatitis and ichthyosis. Defects of the outside barrier can cause […]Continue Reading ...
April 17, 2017 at 1:45 AM Scientists have known the gene liable for producing acylceramide, the important thing lipid in forming the surface barrier that protects us from pathogens, allergens and different damaging elements. This discovering may just end up a very powerful in growing drugs for treating atopic dermatitis and ichthyosis. Defects of the […]Continue Reading ...
Tiny microscopic worms, invisible to the naked eye, are helping scientists to better understand an extraordinarily complex biological pathway that connects fat to overall health and aging in humans. A team of biologists from McMaster University studying these worms called C. elegans, or nematodes, has found that the regulation of lipid production, and the delicate […]Continue Reading ...
June 27, 2018 Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, and high triglyceride levels in the blood are cited as just one of several risk factors. Millions of lipid panels, blood tests that look at cholesterol levels as well as triglycerides, are performed in clinics each year. Two new Morgridge Institute […]Continue Reading ...
June 13, 2018 Scientists from EPFL and the University of Wisconsin-Madison have carried out one of the most extensive lipidomics studies to date, connecting almost 150 different lipid species to their respective genetic regulators, revealing signatures of metabolic health and disease. Published in two papers in Cell Systems, the study is a landmark for metabolic […]Continue Reading ...
Would possibly nine, 2017 Learning how our our bodies metabolize lipids similar to fatty acids, triglycerides, and ldl cholesterol can educate us about heart problems, diabetes, and different well being issues, in addition to expose elementary cell purposes. However the strategy of learning what occurs to lipids after being fed on has been each technologically […]Continue Reading ...
Might nine, 2017 Learning how our our bodies metabolize lipids corresponding to fatty acids, triglycerides, and ldl cholesterol can educate us about heart problems, diabetes, and different well being issues, in addition to disclose elementary mobile purposes. However the means of finding out what occurs to lipids after being fed on has been each technologically […]Continue Reading ...
Gaucher illness is a genetic dysfunction of lipid metabolism. Sphingosine, a compound as enigmatic because the sphinx, performs a key function on this metabolic dysfunction. Scientists from the Bonn analysis middle caesar have known one of the advanced molecular mechanisms of the way the illness develops. Those findings may just give a contribution to the […]Continue Reading ...
