Nrg4 promotes fuel oxidation and a healthy adipokine profile to ameliorate diet-induced metabolic disorders.

Zhimin Chen, Guo-Xiao Wang, Sara L Ma, Dae Young Jung, Hyekyung Ha, Tariq Altamimi, Xu-Yun Zhao, Liang Guo, Peng Zhang, Chun-Rui Hu, Ji-Xin Cheng, Gary D Lopaschuk, Jason K Kim, Jiandie D Lin,

OBJECTIVE:Brown and white adipose tissue exerts pleiotropic effects on systemic energy metabolism in part by releasing endocrine factors. Neuregulin 4 (Nrg4) was recently identified as a brown fat-enriched secreted factor that ameliorates diet-induced metabolic disorders, including insulin resistance and hepatic steatosis. However, the physiological mechanisms through which Nrg4 regulates energy ... Read more >>

Sara L Ma, Virginia Vega-Warner, Christopher Gillies, Matthew G Sampson, Vijay Kher, Sidharth K Sethi, Edgar A Otto,

Hypophosphatemic rickets (HR) is a heterogeneous genetic phosphate wasting disorder. The disease is most commonly caused by mutations in the PHEX gene located on the X-chromosome or by mutations in CLCN5, DMP1, ENPP1, FGF23, and SLC34A3. The aims of this study were to perform molecular diagnostics for four patients with ... Read more >>
