ConclusionsThe hypoglycemic mechanism of DOP might be associated with the regulation of glucagon-mediated hepatic glycogen metabolism and gluconeogenesis, and of liver glycogen structure, contributing to improved hepatic glucose metabolism in diabetic mice.Graphical abstractDOP could regulate glucagon-mediated signaling pathways and reverse the instability of liver glycogen structure, contributing to improved hepatic glucose metabolism.

Authors: Barcelos STA, Dall'Oglio VM, de Araújo A, Cerski CTS, Álvares-da-Silva MR Abstract Hepatic sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (HSOS) is a hepatic vascular disease histologically characterized by edema, necrosis, detachment of endothelial cells in small sinusoidal hepatic and interlobular veins and intrahepatic congestion, which leads to portal hypertension and liver dysfunction. In the Western world, most HSOS cases are associated with myeloablative pretreatment in a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation setting. Here we report a case of a 54 years old female patient, otherwise healthy, with n...

Authors: Kiapidou S, Liava C, Kalogirou M, Akriviadis E, Sinakos E Abstract The association of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) with several other diseases has gained increased interest during the recent years. Among them, the association with chronic kidney disease (CKD) has emerged as an important one regarding both its prevalence and significance. The early recognition of this association is important for the prognosis of patients with NAFLD and CKD. Apart from early diagnosis, the accurate assessment of renal function is also crucial in the clinical practice of hepatologists. Several methods have been ...

Publication date: 15 December 2019Source: Journal of Molecular Liquids, Volume 296Author(s): A.P. Naseer, P.K. Madhavan UnniAbstractThe effect of addition of small amounts of the ionic impurity Potassium Thiocyanate (KSCN) on the tunnel-like region in the phase diagram of Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) + secondary Butyl Alcohol (sBA) + Water (W) is investigated in detail. The KSCN weight fraction range, 0 ≤ XKSCN ≤ 0.0318, results in a systematic decrease in the diameter of the critical-tunnel from ΔT = 71.416 K at XKSCN = 0, to ΔT = 5.275 K at XKSCN = 0.0315. Fo...

Publication date: 15 December 2019Source: Journal of Molecular Liquids, Volume 296Author(s): Zainab Ghorbanian, Ghorban Asgari, Mohammad Taghi Samadi, Abdolmotaleb Seid-mohammadiAbstractThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the removal of 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP) from aqueous solutions using microwave irradiation (MW) assisted nanoscale zero-valent copper (CuO) activated persulfate (PS). Effective operational parameters including, pH of the solution, PS concentration, CuO dosage, MW power, and initial 2,4-DCP concentration, were investigated. Results indicated that the MW/PS/CuO system achieved higher efficiency in...

In this study, ICR male mice were fed a high-fat diet (HFD) in vivo and the AML12 cells were treated with palmitic acid (PA) in vitro. We explore the protective effect and potential mechanism of Chinese Herbal Formula (CHF03) against NAFLD by HE staining, transmission Electron Microscopy assay, Western blotting, and gene expression. In vivo, oxidative stress markers (GSH, GSH-px, MDA, SOD, and CAT) confirmed that CHF03 alleviated oxidative stress and abundance of NF-κB proteins indicating a reduction in inflammation and oxidative stress. The lower protein abundance of ACACA and FASN indicated a preventive effect on l...
