Antidiabetic effect of Lactobacillus casei CCFM on mice with type 2 diabetes induced by a high-fat diet and streptozotocin. Therefore, as with all biological experiments the time of day must be kept consistent. Angle type restrainers are simpler if with experiences. Thus, these diet forms are not only different regarding their ingredients and nutrition facts, but also in terms of the typical end points of DIO studies. Through further experiments, the authors attributed the benefits to inflammation reduction. Moura, Priscila R. Infiltrating macrophages are known to be involved in pathogenesis [ 83 ]. In case of the CAF-fed mice, every type of food was separately weighed and multiplied with the respective amount of calories per gram. The present study is supposed to serve as a helpful tool and an appeal for decision making for choosing the right diet for experiments concerning DIO-induced metabolic disorders.
Obesity is reaching pandemic proportions in Western society. It has resulted in increasing health care burden and decreasing life expectancy. Obesity is a complex, chronic disease, involving decades of pathophysiological changes and adaptation. Therefore, it is difficult ascertain the exact mechanisms for this long-term process in humans. To circumvent some of these issues, several surrogate models are available, including murine genetic loss-of-function mutations, transgenic gain-of-function mutations, polygenic models, and different environmental exposure models. The mouse model of diet-induced obesity has become one of the most important tools for understanding the interplay of high-fat Western diets and the development of obesity. This model has lead to many discoveries of the important signalings in obesity, such as Akt and mTOR. The chapter describes protocols for diet induced-obesity model in mice and protocols for measuring insulin resistance and sensitivity. Obesity results from an imbalance of food intake, basal metabolism, and energy expenditure. At an individual level, multiple endogenous or environmental causes could lead to obesity 1. However, in most cases, a combination of excessive caloric intake and availability of energy-dense meals is thought to be the main contributor to obesity 2.
CAF feeding reliably induced visceral obesity, glucose intolerance, insulin resistance and vascular dysfunction in the present study. Relatively small amounts 0. Battiprolu, B. There is significant new data that the insulin signaling cascade directly impacts cardiac mitochondrial fission and fusion reviewed in [ 95 ]. Return the mice into cages with food. Blood , 82—89 Blood samples were taken from the orbital vein in 12 h-fasted rats under anesthesia at weeks 8, 9, and Gregor and G.
