- Adipose triglyceride lipase-null mice are resistant to high-fat diet-induced insulin resistance despite reduced energy expenditure and ectopic lipid accumulationAndrew J Hoy
Monash University, Department of Physiology, Wellington Road, Clayton Victoria, 3800, Australia
Endocrinology 152:48-58. 2011..Overall, these results show that ATGL-/- mice are protected from HFD-induced insulin resistance and reveal a tissue specific disparity between lipid accumulation and insulin sensitivity...
- Lipid metabolism in skeletal muscle: generation of adaptive and maladaptive intracellular signals for cellular functionMatthew J Watt
Biology of Lipid Metabolism Laboratory, Department of Physiology, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria 3800, Australia
Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 302:E1315-28. 2012....
- Ceramides contained in LDL are elevated in type 2 diabetes and promote inflammation and skeletal muscle insulin resistanceJames Boon
Biology of Lipid Metabolism Laboratory, Department of Physiology, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria, Australia
Diabetes 62:401-10. 2013..These newly identified roles of LDL-ceramide suggest that strategies aimed at reducing hepatic ceramide production or reducing ceramide packaging into lipoproteins may improve skeletal muscle insulin action...
- Distinct roles of specific fatty acids in cellular processes: implications for interpreting and reporting experimentsMatthew J Watt
Dept of Physiology, Monash University, Clayton, VIC 3800, Australia
Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 302:E1-3. 2012..Hence, authors should avoid conclusions that generalize about "FAs" or "saturated FAs" or "high-fat diet" effects if only a single FA was used in the reported experiments...
