Reverting to a healthy diet during lactation normalizes maternal milk lipid content of diet-induced obese rats and prevents early alterations in the plasma lipidome of the offspring
30-06-2022CONCLUSION: Implementing a healthy diet during lactation prevents early alterations in the plasma lipidome of pups associated to the maternal intake of an obesogenic diet, which may be related to the normalization of milk lipid content and the inflammatory state in the mammary gland.

Heterogeneous Development of β-Cell Populations In Diabetes-Resistant and -Susceptible Mice
30-06-2022Progressive dysfunction and failure of insulin-releasing β-cells is a hallmark of type 2 diabetes (T2D). To study mechanisms of β-cell loss in T2D, we performed islet single-cell RNA-sequencing of two obese mouse strains differing in their diabetes susceptibility. On a control diet, we identified six β-cell clusters with similar abundance in both strains. However, after feeding a diabetogenic diet for two days, β-cell cluster composition markedly differed between strains. Islets of...

Characterization and Clinical Association of Autoantibodies Against Perilipin 1 in Patients with Acquired Generalized Lipodystrophy
30-06-2022Acquired generalized lipodystrophy (AGL) is a rare condition characterized by massive loss of adipose tissue through the body, causing severe metabolic complications. Autoimmune destruction of adipocytes is strongly suspected based on the frequent association of AGL with autoimmune disorders. In 2018 autoantibodies against Perilipin 1 (PLIN1) were identified in three patients with autoimmune-associated AGL. However, the pathogenic mechanism and clinical impact of anti-PLIN1 remain unsolved. The...
