The intestinal fatty acid binding protein is not essential for dietary fat absorption in mice. (1/1)The intestinal fatty acid binding protein (I-FABP) belongs to a family of 15 kDa clamshell-like proteins that are found in many different tissues. So far, nine types have been identified. Their primary structures are highly conserved between species but somewhat less so among the different types. The function of these proteins, many of which are highly expressed, is not well understood. Their ability to bind lipid ligands suggests a role in lipid metabolism, but direct evidence for this idea is still lacking. We tested the hypothesis that I-FABP serves an essential role in the assimilation of dietary fatty acids by disrupting its gene (Fabpi) in the mouse. We discovered that Fabpi-/- mice are viable, but they display alterations in body weight and are hyperinsulinemic. Male Fabpi-/- mice had elevated plasma triacylglycerols and weighed more regardless of the dietary fat content. In contrast, female Fabpi-/- mice gained less weight in response to a high-fat diet. The results clearly demonstrate that I-FABP is not essential for dietary fat absorption. We propose that I-FABP functions as a lipid-sensing component of energy homeostasis that alters body weight gain in a gender-specific fashion. (+info)

Insulin resistance is a characteristic feature in FCHL.9 10 Since genetic variation in the FABP2 gene could be the cause of insulin resistance, we screened for variants in this gene in patients with FCHL. According to our study, the FABP2 gene is not likely to be a major gene for FCHL. However, the polymorphism in codon 54 of this gene (Ala→Thr) may contribute to abnormalities in lipid metabolism in FCHL, although it does not have a significant effect on insulin resistance.. Complex segregation analysis has suggested a major gene effect on apoB28 and on triglycerides29 in FCHL. Although some uncommon variants in the lipoprotein lipase gene26 could cause FCHL, no gene that could explain a major part of this disease has yet been found. We found one novel nucleotide substitution in the 3′ noncoding region (A→G) of the FABP2 gene in patients with FCHL. In addition, we found nucleotide substitutions in codon 54 (GCT→ACT) and in codon 118 (GTA→GTG) described previously in Pima Indians.13 ...
The small intestine is a dynamic and complex organ that is characterized by constant epithelium turnover and crosstalk among various cell types and the microbiota. Lymphatic capillaries of the small intestine, called lacteals, play key roles in dietary fat absorption and the gut immune response; however, little is known about the molecular regulation of lacteal function. Here, we performed a high-resolution analysis of the small intestinal stroma and determined that lacteals reside in a permanent regenerative, proliferative state that is distinct from embryonic lymphangiogenesis or quiescent lymphatic vessels observed in other tissues. We further demonstrated that this continuous regeneration process is mediated by Notch signaling and that the expression of the Notch ligand delta-like 4 (DLL4) in lacteals requires activation of VEGFR3 and VEGFR2. Moreover, genetic inactivation of ...
The advantage of daily weigh ins is that it helps you learn how your body reacts to various things that life throws at it. You start to see how your bodys weight changes and how/when those changes occur. For example, a 90 minute sweat-a-thon on the exercise bike can yield me a kilo loss but that number is a soft number because most of that loss is made up of sweat/water. If I do an exercise that I havent done for a while like a good hour jog or weeding the garden - that exercise doesnt show up straight away. The next day my weight is the same or even a bit more and my muscles are stiff and aching but I know from experience in the next couple of days I will get real good results because of what Ive done ...
MINNEAPOLIS - Members of Minnesotas Somali community are condemning the attack on a Kenya mall and are waiting anxiously to see if any Americans are linked to the violence.. Several groups have called a news conference for 2 p.m. Monday in solidarity with the victims and to warn about the dangers of extremism. Meanwhile, A Somali woman in Minnesota is worrying about two nieces injured in the attacks. Hodan Hassan of Minnetonka says her 17-year-old and 16-year-old nieces were shopping when the attackers struck. She said the older one is in critical condition with severe leg injuries, while the other was not as seriously hurt. She says theyre Canadian citizens who moved to Nairobi three years ago. Hassan says it would be sad if Somali-Americans were responsible but she doubts its true.. ...
We have analyzed two gene products expressed in the early endoderm of Xenopus laevis: Xlhbox-8, a pancreas-specific transcription factor and intestinal fatty acid binding protein (IFABP), a marker of small intestinal epithelium. Expression of the pancreas marker relies on cell signaling mediated by both the TGF-beta and FGF classes of secreted peptide growth factors, whereas, expression of the more posterior small intestinal marker does not. Endodermal explants devoid of mesoderm express both markers in a regionalized manner. Cortical rotation is required for the expression of the more anterior marker, Xlhbox-8, but not for the small intestinal marker, IFABP. These findings suggest that endodermal patterning is dependent, in part, on the same events and signals known to play important roles in mesodermal development. Furthermore, inhibition of TGF-beta signaling in the endoderm leads to ectopic expression of both mesodermal and ectodermal markers, suggesting the TGF-beta signaling may play a ...
Study finds link between body weight change and hip fracture risk among Singapore Chinese - Think Pink Rocks

Elina Helander, a postdoctoral researcher at Tampere University of Technology in Finland, and her colleagues set out to answer a simple question: how does a persons body weight change over the course of the year? To find out, they used internet-connected scales to collect daily body weight data from nearly 3,000 volunteers in the United States, Germany, and Japan. After crunching the data, a striking pattern emerged: no matter what you celebrate, at any time of year, the holidays are likely to be your period of greatest weight gain ...

The current results with empagliflozin confirm the benefits of SGLT2 inhibition in patients with T2DM shown in previous studies (meta-analyzed in Vasilakou et al. ). In our patient cohort (rather typical for age, BMI, and glycemic control), 90 weeks of therapy led to a significant and sustained decrease in HbA1c and FPG. The initial decrease in eGFR, which averaged 4 ± 10 mL ⋅ min−1 ⋅ 1.73 m−2 and did not differ by sex or previous treatment, is likely a hemodynamic effect that has been observed with other members of this class of agents (26) and has been shown to be fully reversible upon interrupting the treatment (32,33).. With regard to body weight changes, the reduction seen in these patients is in line with the findings of virtually all trials using SGLT2 inhibitors: a rapid decrement, typically averaging 2-3 kg and made up by roughly two-thirds of fat tissue, which is maintained as long as treatment is continued (Fig. 1). Using the mathematical model, one can calculate that the ...
Noninvasive biomarkers of gut barrier function identify two subtypes of patients suffering from diarrhoea predominant-IBS: a...
Alterations of the small-intestinal permeability (s-IP) might play an essential role in both diarrhoea-predominant IBS (D-IBS) and celiac disease (CD) patients. Our aims were to analyse in D-IBS patients the symptom profile along with the levels of urinary sucrose (Su), lactulose (La), mannitol (Ma), and circulating biomarkers (zonulin, intestinal fatty acid binding protein - I-FABP, and diamine oxidase - DAO) of the gastrointestinal (GI) barrier function. The pro-inflammatory interleukins 6 and 8 (IL-6 and IL-8), the plasma values of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), and Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR-4) were also investigated. Besides, these biomarkers were compared with those in CD and healthy controls (HC). Finally, comparisons were performed between D-IBS patients with [D-IBS(+)] and without [D-IBS(−)] increased s-IP according to normal or altered La/Ma ratio. The study included 39 D-IBS patients, 32 CD patients, and 20 HC. GI permeability was assayed by high-performance liquid chromatography determination in

Clinical signs, behavioural assessments, body weight change, food and water consumption were monitored during the study. Pairing of non-recovery animals within each dose group was undertaken on a one male: one female basis within each treatment group on Day 15 of the study, with females subsequently being allowed to litter and rear their offspring to Day 5 of lactation. During the lactation phase, daily clinical observations were performed on all surviving offspring, together with evaluations of litter size and offspring weights and assessment of surface righting reflex. Extensive functional observations were performed on five selected males from each dose group after the completion of the pairing phase, and for five selected parental females from each dose group on Day 4post partum. Five non-recovery males and females from each dose group were selected for haematology and blood chemistry assessments prior to termination. Adult non-recovery males were terminated on Day 43, followed by the ...
