Transforming growth factor β1 impairs the transcriptomic response to contraction in myotubes from women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

J Physiol 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Institute for Health and Sport (iHeS), Victoria University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is characterised by a hormonal imbalance affecting the reproductive and metabolic health of reproductive-aged women. Exercise is recommended as a first-line therapy for women with PCOS to improve their overall health; however, women with PCOS are resistant to the metabolic benefits of exercise training. Here, we aimed to gain insight into the mechanisms responsible for such resistance to exercise in PCOS. Read More

Male Marfan mice are predisposed to high fat diet induced obesity, diabetes, and fatty liver.

Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences, McGill University, Montréal, Canada.

Gene mutations in the extracellular matrix protein fibrillin-1 cause connective tissue disorders including Marfan syndrome (MFS) with clinical symptoms in the cardiovascular, skeletal, and ocular systems. MFS patients also exhibit alterations in adipose tissues, which in some individuals leads to lipodystrophy, whereas in others to obesity. We have recently demonstrated that fibrillin-1 regulates adipose tissue homeostasis. Read More

Comparison of Reproductive Function Between Normal and Hyperandrogenemia Conditions in Female Mice With Deletion of Hepatic Androgen Receptor.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2022 9;13:868572. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Department of Pediatrics, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, United States.

Obesity, altered glucose homeostasis, hyperinsulinism, and reproductive dysfunction develops in female humans and mammals with hyperandrogenism. We previously reported that low dose dihydrotestosterone (DHT) administration results in metabolic and reproductive dysfunction in the absence of obesity in female mice, and conditional knock-out of the androgen receptor (Ar) in the liver (LivARKO) protects female mice from DHT-induced glucose intolerance and hyperinsulinemia. Since altered metabolic function will regulate reproduction, and liver plays a pivotal role in the reversible regulation of reproductive function, we sought to determine the reproductive phenotype of LivARKO mice under normal and hyperandrogenemic conditions.

LPS and palmitic acid Co-upregulate microglia activation and neuroinflammatory response.

Compr Psychoneuroendocrinol 2021 May 17;6:100048. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center, Charleston, SC, 29425, United States.

Growing evidence indicates that disturbances in the inflammatory response system can have deleterious effects on neuronal function and mental health. While the correlation between elevated peripheral inflammatory markers and psychiatric disorders are well documented, the exact molecular and neuronal mechanism underlying the connection between activated inflammation and neuropsychiatric behaviour remain elusive. Microglia activation is the key interface between neuro-inflammation and manifestation of psychiatric symptoms. Read More

Curcuminoids for Metabolic Syndrome: Meta-Analysis Evidences Toward Personalized Prevention and Treatment Management.

Front Nutr 2022 9;9:891339. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

AgroBioSciences Department, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, Ben-Guerir, Morocco.

The metabolic syndrome (MS) is a multifactorial syndrome associated with a significant economic burden and healthcare costs. MS management often requires multiple treatments (polydrug) to ameliorate conditions such as diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, various therapeutics and possible drug-drug interactions may also increase the risk of MS by altering lipid and glucose metabolism and promoting weight gain. Read More

Kidney-placenta crosstalk in health and disease.

Clin Kidney J 2022 Jul 15;15(7):1284-1289. Epub 2022 Apr 15.

Physiology Department, Instituto Universitario del Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Organ crosstalk allows the interaction between systems to adapt to a constant changing environment, maintaining homeostasis. The process of placentation and the new hormonal environment during pregnancy trigger physiological changes that modulate kidney function to control extracellular volume, acid-base balance and filtration of metabolic waste products. The bidirectional communication means that acute or chronic dysfunction of one organ can compromise the other. Read More
