How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
How the mole-rat lost its pain Pain alerts our bodies that something is amiss and typically we stop the pain-causing activity. Numerous species of plants and prey animals take advantage of this response by producing pain-causing substances that are released during predation attempts. In turn, species that encounter these substances often evolve way...

Objective: Energy metabolism and insulin action follow a diurnal rhythm. It is therefore important that investigations into dysregulation of these pathways are relevant to the physiology of this diurnal rhythm. Methods: We examined glucose uptake, markers of insulin action, and the phosphorylation of insulin signaling intermediates in muscle of...

Maximal lifespan of mammalian species, even if closely related, may differ more than 10-fold, however the nature of the mechanisms that determine this variability is unresolved. Here, we assess the relationship between maximal lifespan duration and concentrations of more than 20,000 lipid compounds, measured in 669 tissue samples from 6 tissues of...
Article
Safe anaerobic metabolism Naked mole-rats live in large colonies deep underground in hypoxic conditions. Park et al. found that these animals fuel anaerobic glycolysis with fructose by a rewired pathway that avoids tissue damage (see the Perspective by Storz and McClelland). These results provide insight into the adaptations that this strange socia...
Article
The African naked mole-rat’s ($\textit{Heterocephalus glaber}$) social and subterranean lifestyle generates a hypoxic niche. Under experimental conditions, naked mole-rats tolerate hours of extreme hypoxia and survive 18 minutes of total oxygen deprivation (anoxia) without apparent injury. During anoxia, the naked mole-rat switches to anaerobic met...

The naked mole-rat is a subterranean rodent lacking several pain behaviors found in humans, rats, and mice. For example, nerve growth factor (NGF), an important mediator of pain sensitization, fails to produce thermal hyperalgesia in naked mole-rats. The sensitization of capsaicin-sensitive TRPV1 ion channels is necessary for NGF-induced hyperalges...
Article
Energy metabolism follows a diurnal pattern responding to the light/dark cycle and food availability. This study investigated the impact of restricting feeding to the daylight hours and feeding a high fat diet on circadian clock (bmal1, dbp, tef and e4bp4) and metabolic (pepck, fas, ucp3, pdk4) gene expression and markers of energy metabolism in mu...

To determine if acute overexpression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor, gamma, coactivator 1 beta (Pgc-1β [also known as Ppargc1b]) in skeletal muscle improves insulin action in a rodent model of diet-induced insulin resistance. Rats were fed either a low-fat or high-fat diet (HFD) for 4 weeks. In vivo electroporation was used to overex...

A hallmark feature of the metabolic syndrome is abnormal glucose metabolism which can be improved by exercise. Recently the orphan nuclear receptor subfamily 4, group A, member 1 (NUR77) was found to be induced by exercise in muscle and was linked to transcriptional control of genes involved in lipid and glucose metabolism. Here we investigated if...
