- Functional characterization of a new human melanocortin-4 receptor homozygous mutation (N72K) that is associated with early-onset obesityPatric J D Delhanty
Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatric Endocrinology, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Mol Biol Rep 41:7967-72. 2014..Our data describe a rare homozygous inactivating mutation in the first intra-cellular loop of MC4R that markedly impairs its function and is associated with early-onset obesity and hyperphagia. ..
- Des-acyl ghrelin analogs prevent high-fat-diet-induced dysregulation of glucose homeostasisPatric J D Delhanty
Dept of Internal Medicine, Erasmus MC, PO Box 2040, 3000 CA Rotterdam, The Netherlands
FASEB J 27:1690-700. 2013..AZP531 also prevented a HFD-induced increase in acyl ghrelin levels. Our data indicate DAG analogs as potential treatment for the prevention of metabolic syndrome...
- Ghrelin and glucose homeostasisP J D Delhanty
Department of Internal Medicine, Erasmus MC, 3000 CA Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Peptides 32:2309-18. 2011..A promising recently developed approach appears to be through the blockade of GOAT activity, although the longer term effects of this treatment remain to be investigated...

- Unacylated ghrelin rapidly modulates lipogenic and insulin signaling pathway gene expression in metabolically active tissues of GHSR deleted micePatric J D Delhanty
Department of Internal Medicine, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
PLoS ONE 5:e11749. 2010..There is increasing evidence that unacylated ghrelin (UAG) improves insulin sensitivity and glucose homeostasis; however, the mechanism for this activity is not fully understood since a UAG receptor has not been discovered...

Department of Internal Medicine, Erasmus Medical Centre, Dr Molewaterplein 50, 3015 GD Rotterdam, The Netherlands
J Endocrinol 188:37-47. 2006..Overall, our data suggest new roles for ghrelin and UAG in modulating human osteoblast proliferation via a novel signal transduction pathway...
