Researchers investigated the intracellular mechanism of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) synthesis in L cells from the perspective of miRNA. They found that GLP-1 level was down-regulated in the plasma and ileum tissues of obese mice, while the ileac miR-194 expression was up-regulated.

Researchers showed that high-fat diet feeding greatly suppressed the expression of disulfide-bond A oxidoreductase-like protein (DsbA-L), a mitochondria-localized chaperone protein, in adipose-resident T cells, which correlated with reduced T cell mitochondrial function.

Scientists provide a concise overview of the core physiology of glucagon like peptide-1 secretion and action, and the role of the peptide in human health, disease and therapeutics.
Investigators provide an update on the current knowledge related to obesity and skeletal muscle contractile function and highlight a number of questions to address potential etiologic mechanisms as well as intervention strategies, which may help advance the understanding of how physical performance can be improved among obese older adults.

Scientists found that stem cell factor (SCF) expression in the epidermis was decreased in mouse models of delayed wound closure intended to mimic old age, obesity, and alcoholism. By using SCF conditionally knocked out mice, they demonstrated that keratinocytes’ autocrine production of SCF activates a transient c-kit receptor in keratinocytes.
