Irisin as a muscle-derived hormone stimulating thermogenesis - A critical update.
Berlin, Germany. In Peptides, 26 Feb 2014
UNLABELLED: The recently described myokine, irisin is cleaved from fibronectin type III domain containing protein 5 (FNDC5) and has been proposed to be secreted upon exercise to promote the browning of beige fat cells in white adipose tissue that results in enhanced thermogenesis and increased energy expenditure.
Epithelial bridges maintain tissue integrity during collective cell migration.
Singapore, Singapore. In Nat Mater, 31 Jan 2014
Here, we show that monolayers of human keratinocytes migrating along functionalized micropatterned surfaces comprising alternating strips of extracellular matrix (fibronectin) and non-adherent polymer form suspended multicellular bridges over the non-adherent areas.
