An In Vitro Murine Model to Study Intestinal Mesenteric Afferent Activity in Response to Luminal Fatty Acid Stimuli
Obesity is pandemic. Pharmacological treatment development depends on modeling the regulation of feeding, particularly by free fatty acids (FFA). Most models have been employed in the rat in vivo, and show FFA-stimulated ...
The Physiological Actions of Adiponectin in Central Autonomic Nuclei: Implications for the Integrative Control of Energy Homeostasis
Adiponectin regulates feeding behavior, energy expenditure and autonomic function through the activation of two receptors present in nuclei throughout the central nervous system, however much remains unknown about the ...
Electrophysiological Characterization of Sodium Currents in Adult Rat Cardiac Myocytes
The electrical heterogeneity of the heart has been recognized as an important feature of normal cardiac function. In cardiac myocytes, considerable electrophysiological differences in sodium channel currents have been ...
