Meteorin-Like (METRNL) Expression in Human Adipose Tissue is Associated with Adipocyte Hypertrophy and Inflammation and is Down-Regulated During Human Adipogenesis

Loffler Dennis , Rockstroh Denise , Schwartze Julian , Landgraf Kathrin , Korner Antje

Background: The new adipokine/myokine meteorin-like (Metrnl) has been proposed to be of interest for obesity and metabolic disease through its potential role for brown/beige fat thermogenesis and macrophage activation in mice. METRNL was reported to be expressed in white adipose tissue (AT) and upregulated during adipogenesis and by exercise and.Aims: In this study we analysed the expression of METRNL during human adipogenesis and its regulation...

Tulun Alev , Pfaffle Roland , Rockstroh Denise , Jamra Rami Abou , Schmidt Julia , Gillessen-Kaesbach Gabriele , Hoppmann Julia , Hiort Olaf

Background: The most common endocrine cause of growth disorders in childhood is growth hormone deficiency (GHD). The rare monogenic forms of GHD are inherited as autosomal dominant or recessive traits and manifest as isolated deficiency or in combination with other hormone deficiencies. Here, we report on a three-year-old girl with a severe growth retardation (height 77 cm, – 5.6 S.D.S.). She is the only child of non-consanguineous parents from northern Ira...

Background: Accumulation of fat mass in the development of obesity may result from hypertrophy and/or hyperplasia and is frequently associated with adipose tissue (AT) dysfunction in adults. However, the onset and mechanisms of AT dysfunction are not entirely understood.Objective and hypotheses: We assessed composition, function, lipolysis, and inflammation in 171 AT samples from lean and obese children and adolescents (aged 0 – 18 years) to evaluat...

The Silver-Russel syndrome (SRS) is characterized by an intrauterine growth retardation accompanied by postnatal growth deficiency. Affected individuals typically have proportionately short statue, finger deformities as well as typical facial features. About 10% of individuals with SRS have maternal uniparental disomy for chromosome 7 (UPD7) and 35%–50% showed hypomethylation of the parental imprinting center region 1 (ICR1) of chromosome 11p15.5. In the recent past also ...

Carriers of IGF1-receptor Mutations As A Subgroup of SGA Patients: A Comprehensive Retrospective Comparison of Response to rhGH Treatment and Health Profile

Objective: IGF-1 receptor mutations (IGF1RM) are a rare abnormality; however, affected patients exhibit severe postnatal growth retardations without catch-up growth. Although several cases of IGF1RM have been described, a comprehensive retrospective analysis of the potential benefit of rhGH treatment is still missing. The aim of this study was therefore to investigate baseline auxology, response to rhGH therapy and potential metabolic effects in patients with IGF1RM in compari...

Novel Variants in the POU1F1 Beta Isoform are Associated with Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency and Combined Pituitary Hormone Deficiency

Background: Hypopituitarism is characterized by deficiency of one or more anterior pituitary hormones. POU1F1 mutations are the second most frequent known cause of combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD). Patients are typically deficient in GH, TSH, and prolactin, although two unrelated cases were reported with isolated GH deficiency (IGHD). To date, all POU1F1 mutations have been reported for the predominantly expressed alpha isoform, which is a transcr...

Background: Transgirls (female-identifying adolescents assigned male at birth) can be treated with GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone analogs) followed by the addition of estrogens.Recently in a small cohort of 25 transgirls their average final height was reported to be +1.9 SDS (standard deviation score) calculated for adult Dutch females.High dosage estrogens can be used to stimulate bone maturation, thereb...

Gender Mender, or Defender: Understanding Decision Making in Aotearoa/New Zealand for People Born with a Variation in Sex Characteristics

Steers Denise , Ballantyne Angela , Stubbe Maria , Collings Sunny , Wiltshire Esko

People born with a variation in sex characteristics (VSC) face the challenge of having atypically sexed bodies. This quantitative study recruited 10 young adults with a VSC (14 to 24 years); 18 parents of children with a VSC; and 22 health professionals working in the VSC field. Interviews were semi structured, digitally recorded and transcribed. Using thematic analysis, we identified key themes regarding participants' experiences of health care decision-making. This study...

Association of Maternal Depressive Symptoms with Worse Metabolic Control in Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes

Introduction: Metabolic control (MC) of patients with type 1 diabetes (DM1) is linked with complications in short and long term follow up. Adolescence is a critical period in the treatment of DM1, making it difficult to achieve good MC. Few studies, all conducted in the United States, have shown an association between mother´s depressive symptoms with poorer MC of their adolescent.Objective: To evaluate the associat...

The experiences of older adults with Variations in Sex Characteristics (VSC or Differences/Disorders in Sex Development/DSD) are well documented. However there has been a gap in the literature with respect to representing the voices of younger people. This qualitative research study has been conducted in collaboration with Intersex Trust Aotearoa New Zealand. Ten young people with VSC were recruited via health professionals, intersex advocates, support groups and social media ...
