  • In contrast to the accumulation of fat in the gluteo-femoral region, the accumulation of fat around abdominal viscera and inside intraabdominal solid organs is strongly associated with obesity-related complications like Type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease. (eurekaselect.com)
  • The molecular basis for depot-specific differences in gluteofemoral (GF) compared with abdominal (A) subcutaneous adipocyte function is poorly understood. (biomedcentral.com)
  • ChIP-qPCR experiments confirmed that the active H3K4me3 chromatin mark was significantly enriched at the promoter regions of HOXA5 and HOXA3 genes in abdominal preadipocytes, while H3K27me3 was less abundant relative to chromatin from GF. (biomedcentral.com)
  • We know that in the transition from the fertile phase for the non-reproductive phase, denominated perimenopause, women start already predisposed to weight gain and, due to estrogen deficiency, the pattern of fat deposition becomes more phenotypically similar to men's, assuming an android pattern, in other words, with predominant accumulation in the abdominal region.

  • In postmenopausal period body fat distribution alters from gluteofemoral region to intraabdominal region where the tissue is more sensitive to lypolysis. (endocrine-abstracts.org)
  • He explained that the fat stored in the stomach is harmful because 'it is more metabolically active,' sending fatty contents and messages throughout the body, whereas fat in the lower regions of the body tends to be more stable and release fewer cytokines, which have been implicated in the insulin resistance that can lead to diabetes.

  • a macroscopic cordlike structure of the body, comprising a collection of nerve fibers that convey impulses between a part of the central nervous system and some other body region. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • eight
  • Here we use Bayesian coalescent inference methods, together with a global dataset of 357 human mtDNA coding region sequences, to infer human population sizes through time across eight major geographic regions. (blogspot.com)
