Human maternal obesity in the development of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in a germ-free mouse model : identifying the role of the infant gut microbiome
Contributor:Soderborg, Taylor Kristina
Maternal metabolism and obesity contribute significantly to the risk of obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the next generation, however the causal drivers of this relationship are currently unclear. ...
Investigating molecular pathways controlling resistance to obesity and NAFLD in plin2-null mice
Obesity and its associated disorder, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), comprise serious public health challenges in the modern world. Despite intense study, current treatments for obesity and NAFLD have proven ...
Determining the optimal level of objectively measured physical activity for long-term weight loss and the association between motivational profiles and physical activity adoption and maintenance
Contributor:Ostendorf, Danielle Marie
It is well-known that high levels of physical activity (PA) are important for successful long-term weight loss, which is reflected in current PA guidelines for weight management (≥300 minutes/week of moderate-intensity ...
Lifecourse investigation of the role of gut microbiota in obesity and cardiometabolic disease, A
Contributor:Stanislawski, Maggie Ann
Understanding the role of the gut microbiota in the development of cardiometabolic conditions has important implications for both prevention and treatment. While recent research suggests that gut microbiota may play a key ...
Obesity predisposing genes in Drosophila melanogaster : the metabolic functions of split ends
Obesity is a result of excess energy storage in the form of triglycerides (TAGs). Preventing obesity requires a precise balance between deposition into and mobilization from fat stores, which is tightly controlled by ...
