GSE107630 Acute treatment with chemical PPARGC1a1 activators in brown fat cells

Contributors : Amanda T Pettersson-Klein ; Jorge L RuasSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Mus musculusThe peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-coactivator-1 α1 (PGC-1α1) regulates genes involved in energy metabolism. Increasing adipose tissue energy expenditure through PGC-1α1 activation has been suggested to be beneficial for systemic metabolism. Pharmacological PGC-1α1 activators could be valuable tools in the fight against obesity and metabolic d isease. Finding such compounds has been challenging partly because PGC-1α1 is a transcriptional coactivator with no known ligand-binding activities. Importantly, PGC-1α1 activation is regulated by several mechanisms but protein stabilization is a limiting step as the protein has a short half-life under unstimulated conditions.We designed a cell-based high-throughput system to identify stabilizers of PGC-1 α1 protein. Positive hits were tested for their ability to induce endogenous PGC-1α1 protein accumulation and activate target gene expression in brown adipocytes. Selected compounds were analyzed for their effects on global gene expression in brown adipocytes.

Authors: Kelley MN, Lowe JR Abstract This community-based study explored the effectiveness of an after-school cultural-based intervention for Native American youth at risk for obesity. A standard health education after-school program served as the comparison control condition. Cherokee self-reliance (cultural identity), perceived stress, and obesity knowledge and related behaviors were the three outcome measures evaluated at baseline and immediate post-intervention. Findings revealed that participants who completed the cultural-based intervention had better results on the three outcome measures in comparison to the...

CONCLUSIONS: The results of our study show that although total lean muscle mass decreased after UAT, lower body muscle efficiency increased while muscle power did not change suggesting that in obese patients UAT can help to optimize weight loss and body efficiency. The data might be helpful for exercise professionals to evaluate correctly the muscle performance in obese adults after weight loss programs. PMID: 30024124 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Through virtual docking strategy, myricanol was discovered as an AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator among a series of structural analogs, with high affinity for the γ subunit of AMPK. Myricanol was also evaluated for regulatory effects on lipid accumulation and insulin sensitivity in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and adiposity in high-fat diet-fed zebrafish. Myricanol suppressed lipid...

This study specifically analyzes the correlation between income inequality, measured by state-level Gini coefficients from the American Community Survey (ACS), and individual behavioral, physical, and mental health outcomes from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) for 2006 through 2014. After controlling for demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, health insurance status, year trends, and state fixed effects, income inequality was found to have significant relationships with behavioral, physical, and mental health outcomes, including heavy drinking, obesity, exercise, diabetes, heart attack, heart...

While quasi-experimental studies have exploited variation in educational policies to more rigorously estimate the health effects of education, there remains disagreement about whether education and health are causally linked. The aim of this study was to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis to characterize this lite...
