    • Brown adipose tissue thermogenic adaptation requires Nrf1-mediated proteasomal activity 

      Bartelt, Alexander; Widenmaier, Scott Bradley; Schlein, Christian; Johann, Kornelia; Goncalves, Renata L.S.; Eguchi, Kosei; Fischer, Alexander W; Parlakgul, Gunes; Snyder, Nicole; Nguyen, Truc B; Bruns, Oliver T; Franke, Daniel; Bawendi, Moungi G; Lynes, Matthew David; Leiria, Luiz O; Tseng, Yu-Hua; Inouye, Karen; Arruda, Ana Paula; Hotamisligil, Gokhan S. (Springer Nature, 2018)
      Objective Brown adipose tissue (BAT) generates heat in response to cold, and low BAT activity has been linked to obesity. However, recent studies were inconclusive as to whether BAT is involved in diet‐induced thermogenesis ...
    • Brown fat activation reduces hypercholesterolaemia and protects from atherosclerosis development 

      Berbée, Jimmy F. P.; Boon, Mariëtte R; Khedoe, P. Padmini S. J.; Bartelt, Alexander; Schlein, Christian; Worthmann, Anna; Kooijman, Sander; Hoeke, Geerte; Mol, Isabel M.; John, Clara; Jung, Caroline; Vazirpanah, Nadia; Brouwers, Linda P.J.; Gordts, Philip L.S.M.; Esko, Jeffrey D.; Hiemstra, Pieter S.; Havekes, Louis M.; Scheja, Ludger; Heeren, Joerg; Rensen, Patrick C.N. (Nature Pub. Group, 2015)
      Brown adipose tissue (BAT) combusts high amounts of fatty acids, thereby lowering plasma triglyceride levels and reducing obesity. However, the precise role of BAT in plasma cholesterol metabolism and atherosclerosis ...
    • The cold-induced lipokine 12,13-diHOME promotes fatty acid transport into brown adipose tissue 

      Lynes, Matthew David; Leiria, Luiz; Lundh, Morten; Bartelt, Alexander; Shamsi, Farnaz; Huang, Tianwen; Takahashi, Hirokazu; Hirshman, Michael F; Schlein, Christian; Lee, Alexandra; Baer, Lisa A; May, Francis J; Gao, Fei; Narain, Niven R; Chen, Emily Y; Kiebish, Michael A; Cypess, Aaron; Blüher, Matthias; Goodyear, Laurie Joy; Hotamisligil, Gokhan S.; Stanford, Kristin I; Tseng, Yu-Hua (Springer Nature, 2017)
      Brown adipose tissue (BAT) and beige adipose tissue combust fuels for heat production in adult humans, and so constitute an appealing target for the treatment of metabolic disorders such as obesity, diabetes and ...
    • Next-generation in vivo optical imaging with short-wave infrared quantum dots 

      Bruns, Oliver T.; Bischof, Thomas S.; Harris, Daniel K.; Franke, Daniel; Shi, Yanxiang; Riedemann, Lars; Bartelt, Alexander; Jaworski, Frank B.; Carr, Jessica A.; Rowlands, Christopher J.; Wilson, Mark W. B.; Chen, Ou; Wei, He; Hwang, Gyu Weon; Montana, Daniel M.; Coropceanu, Igor; Achorn, Odin B.; Kloepper, Jonas; Heeren, Joerg; So, Peter T. C.; Fukumura, Dai; Jensen, Klavs F.; Jain, Rakesh K.; Bawendi, Moungi G. (Springer Nature, 2017)
      The short-wavelength infrared region (SWIR; 1000—2000 nm) provides several advantages over the visible and near-infrared regions for in vivo imaging. The general lack of autofluorescence, low light absorption by blood and ...
