- Association of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 with adipocyte number, insulin resistance and liver function markersTanushree Bose
Division of Nutritional Sciences, Department of Human Ecology, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, USA
J Med Primatol 38:418-24. 2009..Inflammation, insulin resistance, and obesity have been implicated in the pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)...
- Quantitative loci regulating plasma levels of gamma glutamyl transferase and albumin and their genetic correlations with cardiovascular risk factorsTanushree Bose
Division of Nutritional Sciences, Department of Human Ecology, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas 78712, USA
Exp Biol Med (Maywood) 234:vi, 1519-24. 2009..These results imply that variations in the plasma levels of GGT and ALB are under significant genetic regulation and that a common genetic component influences ALB and cardiovascular risk factor phenotypes...

Department of Human Ecology, University of Texas at Austin, 78712, USA
Biochem Genet 48:538-47. 2010..These results suggest that omental adipocyte volume is under genetic regulation and that shared genetic factors influence adiposity-associated traits and AST...
