    • Differential expression of microRNAs in adipose tissue after long-term high-fat diet-induced obesity in mice 

      Chartoumpekis, Dionysios V.; Zaravinos, Apostolos; Ziros, Panos G.; Iskrenova, Ralitsa P.; Psyrogiannis, Agathoklis I.; Kyriazopoulou, Venetsana E.; Habeos, Ioannis G. (2012-04-04)
      Obesity is a major health concern worldwide which is associated with increased risk of chronic diseases such as metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease and cancer. The elucidation of the molecular mechanisms involved ...
    • Hepatic gene expression profiling in Nrf2 knockout mice after long-term high-fat diet-induced obesity 

      Chartoumpekis, Dionysios V.; Ziros, Panos G.; Zaravinos, Apostolos; Iskrenova, Ralitsa P.; Psyrogiannis, Agathoklis I.; Kyriazopoulou, Venetsana E.; Sykiotis, Gerasimos P.; Habeos, Ioannis G. (2013-05-13)
      Introduction. The transcription factor NFE2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a central regulator of antioxidant and detoxification gene expression in response to electrophilic or oxidative stress. Nrf2 has recently been shown ...
    • MicroRNA profiling in murine liver after partial hepatectomy 

      Chaveles, Ioannis G.; Zaravinos, Apostolos; Habeos, Ioannis G.; Karavias, Dimitrios; Maroulis, Ioannis C.; Spandidos, Demetrios A.; Karavias, Dionissios (2012-05-01)
      Liver is uniquely capable to repair itself after injury. Multiple molecular and biochemical processes initiated after partial hepatectomy, lead to proliferation of all cells within the liver. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class ...
    • Nrf2 activation diminishes during adipocyte differentiation of ST2 cells 

      Chartoumpekis, Dionysios V.; Ziros, Panos G.; Sykiotis, Gerasimos P.; Zaravinos, Apostolos; Psyrogianis, Agathoklis I.; Kyriazopoulou, Venetsana E.; Spandidos, Demetrios A.; Habeos, Ioannis G. (2011-11-01)
      Adipocyte differentiation (adipogenesis) is a highly controlled process known to be affected, among other factors, by the redox status of the cell. Nrf2 (NFE2-related factor 2) is a transcription factor that orchestrates ...
