5 Matching questions

  1. High leptin levels from large fat cells due to eating too much
  2. Gastrin release
  3. Adipokines
  4. Glucagon effects on fat cells after long term hypoglycemia
  5. Effects of insulin on liver
  1. a inc breakdown of tri,di,monoglycerides forming FFA and glycerol; simulates hormone dependent lipases
  2. b increase glucose uptake indirectly by stimulating glucokinase which inhibits glucose-6 phosphate; inc glucose storage by stimulating glucose sythetase; inc lipid sythesis by stimulating triglyceride sythetase
  3. c stimulate a-MSH release which binds to melanocortin-4 receptor, decreases appetitie/eating
  4. d food (peptides, AA, IFA), distention of stomach, activity of vagus nerve (GRP) inhibited by SST
  5. e induce insulin resistance: Resistin (proinflammatory, TZD's) IL-6 (proinflammatory, inc with obesity and DM) TNF-a (proinflammatory cytokine,r elease by visceral fat more than subcutaneous)
