    People do Amazing Things with Our Lipids! Researchers from the National Center for Global Health and Medicine (Tokyo, Japan) are studying the role of PAF signaling in neuropathic pain, a chronic pain condition resulting from injury of the peripheral or central nervous systems. PAF, as well as, ATP and lyophosphatidic acid are thought to be

    People do Amazing Things with Our Lipids! This week in research:   Researchers from Northwest University (Xi’an, Shaanxi, China) used numerous lipid analytical standards from Avanti in a serum lipidomic analysis using UPLC-QTOF/HDMS to study lipid metabolism in chronic kidney disease (CKD). This interesting work identifies profound changes in lipid metabolites in individuals with CKD,

  • The Lipid Lowdown-Potential To Treat Type II Diabetes

    NEW ENDOGENOUS LIPID WITH ANTI-DIABETIC AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EFFECTS PAHSA levels correlate highly with insulin sensitivity and are reduced in adipose tissue and serum of insulin-resistant humans. In adipocytes, PAHSAs signal through GPR120 to enhance insulin-stimulated glucose uptake. Thus, FAHFAs are endogenous lipids with the potential to treat type 2 diabetes. The 141 Edition of the
