Background: Growth hormone (GH) has long been used as adjuvant treatment in ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization (IVF), especially in poor responder (PR) patients. However, its clinical efficacy remains unclear, and most studies are underpowered owing to their small sample size with different regimens. Methods: Our study was divided into two parts. The first part was a parallel randomized, observational study in which 184 patients who fulfilled the criteria of poor ovarian response (PO...
Responses to a high fat, high sucrose (HFHS) diet vary greatly among inbred strains of mice. We sought to examine the epigenetic (DNA methylation) changes underlying these differences as well as variation in weight loss when switched to a low-fat chow diet. We surveyed DNA methylation from livers of 45 inbred mouse strains fed a HFHS diet for 8 weeks using reduced-representation bisulfite sequencing (RRBS). We observed a total of 1,045,665 CpGs of which 83 candidate sites were significantly asso...
SNARE proteins are integral to intracellular vesicular trafficking, which in turn is the process underlying the regulated expression of substrate transporters such as the glucose transporter GLUT4 at the cell surface of insulin target tissues. Impaired insulin stimulated GLUT4 trafficking is associated with reduced cardiac function in many disease states, most notably diabetes. Despite this, our understanding of the expression and regulation of SNARE proteins in cardiac tissue and how these may ...
Farnesol, the sesquiterpenoid precursor of the six presently known insect juvenile hormones (JHs) was for the first time chemically identified in 1961, not in JH synthesizing glands or whole body extracts, but in excrements of the mealworm Tenebrio molitor. This finding was thought to be irrelevant and remained unexplored. In 1970, it was reported that the fall to zero of the JH titer in both prediapausing adults and in last instar larvae of the Colorado potato beetle causes severe malfunctionin...
Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress lead to a multitude of adverse cellular responses in target organs of chronic diabetic complications. Curcumin, a highly investigated phytochemical, has been shown to exhibit both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. However, the clinical application of curcumin has been greatly limited due to a poor pharmacokinetic profile. To overcome these limitations, we have generated analogues of curcumin to enhance bioavailability and offer a preferable p...
