S100 proteins in obesity: liaisons dangereuses.

S100 proteins in obesity: liaisons dangereuses. Cell Mol Life Sci. 2019 Jul 30;: Authors: Riuzzi F, Chiappalupi S, Arcuri C, Giambanco I, Sorci G, Donato R Abstract Obesity is an endemic pathophysiological condition and a comorbidity associated with hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and cancer. The adipose tissue of obese subjects shows hypertrophic adipocytes, adipocyte hyperplasia, and chronic low-grade inflammation. S100 proteins are Ca2+-binding proteins exclusively expressed in vertebrates in a cell-specific manner. They have been implicated in the regulation of a variety of functions acting as intracellular Ca2+ sensors transducing the Ca2+ signal and extracellular factors affecting cellular activity via ligation of a battery of membrane receptors. Certain S100 proteins, namely S100A4, the S100A8/S100A9 heterodimer and S100B, have been implicated in the pathophysiology of obesity-promoting macrophage-based inflammation via toll-like receptor 4 and/or receptor for advanced glycation end-products ligation. Also, serum levels of S100A4, S100A8/S100A9, S100A12, and S100B correlate with insulin resistance/type 2 diabetes, metabolic risk score, and fat cell size. Yet, secreted S100B appears to exert neurotrophic effects on sympathetic fibers in brown adipose tissue contributing to the larger sympathetic innervation of this latter relative to white adipose tissue. In the present review we first briefly i...

High blood pressure is prevalent in the UK, with around one in three people living with it in the UK, yet many people will not realise they have it because it rarely produces any outward signs. To prevent high blood pressure, it is important to make healthy dietary decisions, and a popular ingredient has been shown to reduce high blood pressure.

TYPE 2 diabetes is a common condition yet many people in the UK will not realise they have it because the symptoms do not necessarily make you feel unwell. Symptoms are caused by consistently high blood sugar levels, and, overtime, this can affect different parts of the body, including the shoulder.
