Emerging evidence suggests that high‐fat diet (HFD) is associated with gut microbiome dysbiosis and related disorders. Bilberry is a prebiotic food component with known health benefits. Herein, the dynamics of the colonic mucus layer and microbiome during HFD and bilberry supplementation are addressed.
Methods and results
The effects on colonic mucus thickness in vivo and gut microbiota composition...
Brown adipocytes and myocytes develop from a common adipomyocyte precursor. PPARα is a nuclear receptor important for lipid and glucose metabolism. It has been suggested that in brown adipose tissue, PPARα represses the expression of muscle-associated genes, in this way potentially acting to determine cell fate in brown adipocytes. To further understand the possible role of PPARα in these processes,...
