The novel role of alpha2delta-1 in hypothalamic control of energy and glucose homeostasis.

Felsted, Jennifer.

Abstract: Understanding how the brain regulates energy and glucose homeostasis, in coordination with peripheral tissues, is vital for developing effective treatments for obesity and diabetes. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that supports neuronal survival and synaptic plasticity, is an important player in this neural circuitry. Genetic polymorphisms that impede BDNF function po... read more
