Autophagy In Adipocyte Browning: Emerging Drug Target For Intervention In Obesity, Seung-Hyun Ro, Yura Jang, Jiyoung Bae, Isaac M. Kim, Cameron Schaecher, Zachery D. Shomo Jan 2019

Autophagy In Adipocyte Browning: Emerging Drug Target For Intervention In Obesity, Seung-Hyun Ro, Yura Jang, Jiyoung Bae, Isaac M. Kim, Cameron Schaecher, Zachery D. Shomo

Biochemistry -- Faculty Publications

Autophagy, lipophagy, and mitophagy are considered to be the major recycling processes for protein aggregates, excess fat, and damaged mitochondria in adipose tissues in response to nutrient status-associated stress, oxidative stress, and genotoxic stress in the human body. Obesity with increased body weight is often associated with white adipose tissue (WAT) hypertrophy and hyperplasia and/or beige/brown adipose tissue atrophy and aplasia, which significantly contribute to the imbalance in lipid metabolism, adipocytokine secretion, free fatty acid release, and mitochondria function. In recent studies, hyperactive autophagy in WAT was observed in obese and diabetic patients, and inhibition of adipose autophagy ...

Nf98-358 Winter Injury In Evergreen Trees, Jon S. Wilson, Mark O. Harrell

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebFact examines two major causes of winter injury to evergreen trees: winter desiccation and damage from an early frost.


Isolation Of Galactose-Fermenting Thermophilic Cultures And Their Use In The Manufacture Of Low Browning Mozzarella Cheese, Kamla K. Mukhurjee, Robert W. Hutkins Mar 1994

Isolation Of Galactose-Fermenting Thermophilic Cultures And Their Use In The Manufacture Of Low Browning Mozzarella Cheese, Kamla K. Mukhurjee, Robert W. Hutkins

Faculty Publications in Food Science and Technology

The objectives of this study were to isolate galactose-fermenting, galactosenonreleasing strains of Streptococcus and Lactobacillus and to use these strains as starter cultures in the manufacture of low browning Mozzarella cheese. Four Streptococcus isolates having the desirable phenotype, combined with a Lactobacillus helveticus strain, were acceptable as starter cultures based on activity tests. Fifteen vats of Mozzarella cheese were produced, in triplicate, representing four experimental treatments (made with galactose-nonreleasing strains) and one control (made with a galactosefermenting, galactose-releasing Streptococcus). Analyses were performed on cheese after 5 and 28 d of refrigerated storage. The lactose and galactose content of cheese remained ...
