  • Bisphenol A exposure increases liver fat in juvenile fructose-fed Fischer 344 rats
  • 2013

    • BACKGROUND:Prenatal exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) has been shown to induce obesity in rodents. To evaluate if exposure also later in life could induce obesity or liver damage we investigated these hypothesises in an experimental rat model.METHODS: From five to fifteen weeks of age, female Fischer 344 rats were exposed to BPA via drinking water (0.025, 0.25 or 2.5mgBPA/L) containing 5% fructose. Two control groups were given either water or 5% fructose solution. Individual weight of the rats was determined once a week. At termination magnetic resonance imaging was used to assess adipose tissue amount and distribution, and liver fat content. After sacrifice the left perirenal fat pad and the liver were dissected and weighed. Apolipoprotein A-I in plasma was analyzed by western blot.RESULTS:No significant effects on body weight or the weight of the dissected fad pad were seen in rats exposed to BPA, and MRI showed no differences in total or visceral adipose tissue volumes between the groups. However, MRI showed that liver fat content was significantly higher in BPA-exposed rats than in fructose controls (p=0.04). BPA exposure also increased the apolipoprotein A-I levels in plasma (p<0.0001).CONCLUSION: We found no evidence that BPA exposure affects fat mass in juvenile fructose-fed rats. However, the finding that BPA in combination with fructose induced fat infiltration in the liver at dosages close to the current tolerable daily intake (TDI) might be of concern given the widespread use of this compound in our environment.

  • Communicative skills in relation to gender, birth order, childcare and socioeconomic status in 18-month-old children
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Psychology. - 0036-5564. ; 46:6, s. 485-491
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Variation in communicative skills, defined as gestures, vocabulary comprehension and vocabulary production, was examined as a function of gender, birth order, childcare and socioeconomic status (SES) in 1,019 18-month-old children. The children were recruited at their regular check-up at a number of randomly selected Child Health Care centers in a Swedish county. The participation rate was 88%. The children were assessed by their mothers using a short version of the Swedish Early Communicative Development Inventories. The results demonstrate significant effects of gender and birth order on vocabulary comprehension and vocabulary production. Girls scored higher than boys and first-born children scored higher than later-born children. Type of childcare (family care, care at home and day-care centers) interacted with gender and birth order on vocabulary production and indicated that family care is not as advantageous as care at home or at day-care centers. SES had no effect on children's communicative skills at this age.

  • Assessment of mRNA levels for matrix molecules and TGF-B1 in rabbit flexor and peroneus tendons reveals regional differences in steady-state expression
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: Journal of Hand Surgery - British and European Volume. - 0266-7681. ; 29:2, s. 165-169
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This study analysed the differences on a molecular level between two segments of the deep flexor tendon, and compared the intrasynovial flexor tendon with the tendon sheath and the extrasynovial peroneus tendon in a rabbit model. The TRIspin method of RNA extraction was combined with the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction to assess mRNA levels in the tissue segments. Significant differences were detected for all genes studied. mRNA levels for aggrecan, biglycan and collagen III were significantly higher in the fibrocartilaginous proximal segment of the flexor tendon. Collagen I was higher in the flexor tendon than the sheath and the peroneus tendon, and TGF-beta1 was significantly lower in the peroneus tendon. This study demonstrates differences at the mRNA level between different segments of tendon, indicating that the tendon tissue may be adapted to its environment.

  • Growth Factor and Protease Expression during Different Phases of Healing after Rabbit Deep Flexor Tendon Repair
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Journal of Orthopaedic Research. - 0736-0266. ; 29:6, s. 886-892
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The purpose of the study was to contribute to the mapping of molecular events during flexor tendon healing, in particular the growth factors insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and nerve growth factor (NGF), matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-3 and MMP-13) and their inhibitors (tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases, TIMP-1 and TIMP-3, and the protease cathepsin K. In a rabbit model of flexor tendon injury, the mRNA expression for the growth factors, MMPs and TIMPs were measured in tendon and tendon sheath tissue at several time points (3, 6, 21, and 42 days) representing different phases of the healing process. We found that MMP-13 remained increased during the study period, whereas MMP-3 returned to normal levels within the first week after injury. TIMP-3 was down-regulated in the tendon sheaths. Cathepsin K was up-regulated in tendons and sheaths after injury. NGF was present in both tendons and sheaths, but unaltered. IGF-1 exhibited a late increase in the tendons, while VEGF was down-regulated at the later time points. In conclusion, we have demonstrated the presence of NGF in flexor tendons. MMP-13 expression appears to play a more protracted role in flexor tendon healing than MMP-3. The relatively low levels of endogenous IGF-1 and VEGF mRNA following injury support their potential beneficial role as exogenous modulators to optimize tendon healing and strength without increasing adhesion formation.

  • Neuropeptide, mast cell and myofibroblast expression after rabbit deep flexor tendon repair
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Journal of Hand Surgery-American Volume. - 0363-5023. ; 35:11, s. 1842-1849
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • PURPOSE: Increased numbers of myofibroblasts, mast cells, and neuropeptide-containing nerve fibers have been found in a number of fibrotic processes in connective tissues. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the occurrence of factors implicated in a hypothesized profibrotic neuropeptide-mast cell-myofibroblast pathway in deep flexor tendon healing.METHODS: In a rabbit model of flexor tendon injury, with repair of the sharply transected deep flexor tendon using a modified Kessler and a running circumferential peripheral suture, segments of flexor tendons and sheaths were analyzed. The time points chosen-3, 6, 21, and 42 days after tendon repair-represent different stages in tendon healing. The messenger RNA levels of transforming growth factor-β1 and α-smooth muscle actin were measured with conventional reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, and the numbers of myofibroblasts, mast cells, and neuropeptide-containing nerve fibers were determined with immunohistochemistry.RESULTS: The messenger RNA levels for transforming growth factor-β1 and the myofibroblast marker α-smooth muscle actin were significantly increased in deep flexor tendons after injury and repair, at all studied time points, but remained unchanged or even down-regulated in the sheaths. Myofibroblasts, mast cells, and neuropeptide-containing nerve fibers all increased significantly in the healing tendons, exhibiting similar patterns of change in percentages of total cell number over time, reaching levels resembling that of the tendon sheaths with 33% to 50% of the total cell population.CONCLUSIONS: After injury to the deep flexor tendon in a rabbit model, the proportion of myofibroblasts, mast cells, and neuropeptide-containing nerve fibers increases significantly. These findings support the hypothesis that the profibrotic neuropeptide-mast cell-myofibroblast pathway is activated in deep flexor tendon healing.
