Neohesperidin Enhances PGC-1α-Mediated Mitochondrial Biogenesis and Alleviates Hepatic Steatosis in High Fat Diet Fed Mice

Neohesperidin (NHP) elevated hepatic mitochondrial biogenesis and fatty acid oxidation by increasing PGC-1α expression. The activation of AMP-activated protein kinase was involved in NHP induced PGC-1α expression.

Berberine Improves Intralipid-Induced Insulin Resistance in Murine

Scientists showed that berberine administration markedly ameliorated intralipid-induced insulin without affecting blood glucose, which was accompanied by alleviated mitochondrial swelling in skeletal muscle. They used human skeletal muscle cells, AML12 hepatocytes, HUVECs, and CypD knockout mice to investigate metabolic and molecular alternations.

Lentiviral Gene Therapy Vectors Encoding VIP Suppressed Diabetes-Related Inflammation and Augmented Pancreatic Beta-Cell Proliferation

The authors suggested the observed therapeutic effect of lentiviral vector carrying vasoactive intestinal peptide(VIP) gene was due to the repression of diabetes-induced inflammation, its insulinotropic properties, and VIP-induced beta-cell proliferation.

IL-17F Induces Inflammation, Dysfunction and Cell Death in Mouse Islets

IL-17F possessed similar pathogenic activities to IL-17A in mouse β-cell lines and islets and was likely to be a type 17 associated pathogenic factor in type 1 diabetes.

ISL2 Modulates Angiogenesis through Transcriptional Regulation of ANGPT2 to Promote Cell Proliferation and Malignant Transformation in Oligodendroglioma

Investigators established novel oligodendroglioma patient tumor-derived orthotopic xenograft mouse models and cell lines to verify the role of ISL2 in regulating angiogenesis to promote oligodendroglioma growth and malignant transformation.

Lentiviral Gene Therapy Vectors Encoding VIP Suppressed Diabetes-Related Inflammation and Augmented Pancreatic Beta-Cell Proliferation

The therapeutic efficacy of LentiVIP was tested in a multiple low-dose STZ-induced animal model of type 1 diabetes. LentiVIP delivery into diabetic animals reduced hyperglycemia, improved glucose tolerance, and prevented weight loss.

Identification of an Anti-Diabetic, Orally Available Small Molecule that Regulates TXNIP Expression and Glucagon Action

In rat cells and in mouse and human islets, SRI-37330 inhibited expression and signaling of thioredoxin-interacting protein, previously found to be elevated in diabetes and to have detrimental effects on islet function.
