The effects of caveolin1 on β cell proliferation.

The effects of caveolin1 on β cell proliferation. Cell Mol Biol (Noisy-le-grand). 2018 Jan 31;64(1):40-46 Authors: Li H, Peng H, Xu H, Xu F, Lin S, Lin K, Zeng W, Zeng L Abstract Our study aims to access the influence of caveolin1 (CAV1) on β cell expression profiles. We knocked down the expression of CAV1 in both NIT-1 cells and islets isolated from C57BL/6J mice using an RNA interference technique, which was realized by the transfer of an shRNA vector targeting CAV1 mRNA into NIT-1 cells or islets through latent virus infection. First, we identified the change in gene expression profiles in islets, in which the CAV1 expression level was down-regulated, as ascertained by mouse gene expression microarray, and the results showed that pathways related to β cell proliferation and pancreatic secretion functions were significantly influenced. The results of MTT demonstrated that the knockdown of CAV1 expression in NIT-1 cells promoted proliferation. The protein array results showed that pro-apoptotic cytokines were down-regulated in the NIT-1 cell line with CAV1 knockdown. These findings suggest that CAV1 might be involved in apoptosis and proliferation regulation in β cells, and therefore could be a potential target for the development of novel therapies for diabetes mellitus.

Conclusions: Higher hs-CRP as a marker of low-grade inflammation was detected in prepubertal children exposed to maternal GDM, but no differences were seen in height, weight, BMI, or markers of glucose and lipid metabolism compared to control children. This finding may reflect an ongoing process of metabolic changes in children born after a GDM pregnancy.Horm Res Paediatr

Authors: El-Sakka AI Abstract INTRODUCTION: Numerous studies have highlighted the intimate association between erectile dysfunction (ED) and diabetes mellitus (DM). However, the true pathogenesis of ED among diabetic men has not yet been fully discovered. The treatment of ED in diabetic patients remains an interesting area of research. The last two decades have witnessed phenomenal advances in the management of ED with the efficacy of pharmacotherapy for ED in diabetic patients encouraging, especially with introduction of innovative conservative tools for treatment. Areas covered: The aim of this review is to discu...

Authors: Ikeoka T, Sako A, Kuriya G, Yamashita H, Yasuhi I, Horie I, Ando T, Abiru N, Kawakami A Abstract A 27-year-old woman with a history of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) developed type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) in the early postpartum period. Women with a history of GDM are at an increased risk of developing T1D, which is rarer than type 2 diabetes mellitus. A postpartum follow-up 75-g oral glucose tolerance test and the measurement of glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies aided in the early detection of T1D in this patient. Careful attention should be paid to women with a history of GDM who exhibit ...

Authors: Kobayashi M, Ohara N, Ikeda Y, Nagano O, Takada T, Kodama M, Sone H Abstract A 59-year-old non-obese Japanese woman developed diabetes mellitus with a negative glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibody (GADA) test result. Her hyperglycemia was initially well controlled by oral hypoglycemic agents; however, despite continued treatment the hyperglycemia gradually worsened. As she had endogenous insulin deficiency and tested positive for insulin autoantibody (IAA), insulin therapy was initiated. Few studies have investigated GADA-negative patients with slowly progressive type 1 diabetes mellitus (SPT1D). Our I...

AbstractObjectiveThe present study compared the therapeutic effects of great curvature plication with duodenal-jejunal bypass (GCP-DJB) and the commonly used sleeve gastrectomy (SG) in rats with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).MethodsThe rats were randomly divided into three groups: Control group (n = 6), SG group (n = 6), and GCP-DJB group (n = 6). Body weight, daily food intake, fasting blood glucose level, fasting insulin level, insulin resistance index, and fasting serum concentrations of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), peptide tyrosine tyrosine (PYY), and bile acid were measu...

Recent studies have shown that sclerostin, which is a negative regulator of bone formation, could play an important role in the crosstalk between bone and glucose metabolism. The role of sclerostin and its link with glucose homeostasis in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) has not been yet studied extensively in children. The aim of this study was to assess sclerostin and its relationship between other bone and fat related factors as well as glucose metabolism in children and adolescents with T1D in comparison to their healthy peers.
