Adipose, skeletal, and hepatic muscle tissues are the main endocrine organs that produce adipokines, myokines, and hepatokines. These biomarkers can be harmful or beneficial to an organism and still perform crosstalk, acting through the endocrine, paracrine, and autocrine pathways. This study aims to review the crosstalk between adipokines, myokines, and hepatokines. Far beyond understanding the actions of each biomarker alone, it is important to underline that these cytokines act together in the body, resulting in a complex network of actions in different tissues, which may have beneficial or non-beneficial effects on the genesis of various physiological disorders and their respective outcomes, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2), obesity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Overweight individuals secrete more pro-inflammatory adipokines than those of a healthy weight, leading to an impaired immune response and greater susceptibility to inflammatory and infectious diseases. Myostatin is elevated in pro-inflammatory environments, sharing space with pro-inflammatory organokines, such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), interleukin-1 (IL-1), resistin, and chemerin. Fibroblast growth factor FGF21 acts as a beta-oxidation regulator and decreases lipogenesis in the liver. The crosstalk mentioned above can interfere with homeostatic disorders and can play a role as a potential therapeutic target that can assist in the methods of diagnosing metabolic syndrome and CVD.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the implemented lockdown strongly impact on everyone’s daily life. Stressful situations are known to alter eating habits and increase the risk for obesity. In our study, we aimed to investigate the effect of the lockdown measures on nutrition behavior among young adults. In this cross-sectional study, we enrolled 1964 voluntary participants from Bavarian universities. All participants were asked to complete an online questionnaire, semi-quantitatively evaluating the amo...

Myokines are muscle-derived cytokines and chemokines that act extensively on organs and exert beneficial metabolic functions in the whole-body through specific signal networks. Myokines as mediators provide the conceptual basis for a whole new paradigm useful for understanding how skeletal muscle communicates with other organs. In this review, we summarize and discuss classes of myokines and their physiological functions in mediating the regulatory roles of skeletal muscle on other organs and th...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Aging is associated with progressive metabolic dysregulation. Rutin has reported as a metabolic regulating chemical with a poor solubility. At present, we use Na-Rutin investigating the effect and mechanisms of rutin in aging process. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH Wildtype male mice were treated with or without NaR at the dosage of 0.2mg/ml in drinking water from 8-month-old until life end or sacrificed as indicated. Kaplan-Meier survival curve were used for lifespan assay, aging-...

ABSTRACT The liver is a key regulator of systemic energy homeostasis and can sense and respond to nutrient excess and deficiency through crosstalk with multiple tissues. Regulation of systemic energy homeostasis by the liver is mediated in part through regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism. Dysregulation of either process may result in metabolic dysfunction and contribute to the development of insulin resistance or fatty liver disease. The liver has also recently been recognized as an endoc...

Different forms of physical activity—endurance, resistance or dynamic power—stimulate cytokine release from various tissues to the bloodstream. Receptors for exercise-induced cytokines are present in muscle tissue, adipose tissue, liver, brain, bones, cardiovascular system, immune system, pancreas, and skin. They have autocrine, paracrine and endocrine activities. Many of them regulate the myocyte growth and differentiation necessary for muscle hypertrophy and myogenesis. They also modify energy...

A recent study has reported that tsukushi (TSKU) may be related to the development of lung cancer. However, few studies focused on if TSKU associated with the prognosis and immune infiltration cells in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The effect of TSKU expression on prognosis with NSCLC was analyzed in the PrognoScan database and validated in The Cancer Genome Atlas. The composition of tumor infiltrating cells was quantified by methylation and expression data. We combined levels of tumor inf...

Background: Asprosin is a hormone that was first discovered in 2016 by Romere et al. Its secretion is induced in case of starvation. Asprosin promotes hepatic glucose release. There is no literature information available in humans to demonstrate how blood and saliva asprosin levels of patients with newly diagnosed T2DM changed after metformin treatment. We aim to examine these changes and contribute to the literature in this sense. Methods: A total of 60 individuals, 30 healthy volunteers, and 3...

BACKGROUND Leptin, adiponectin, secreted frizzled-related protein 5 (Sfrp5) and wingless-type family member 5a (Wnt5a) are novel adipokines that are involved in insulin sensitivity and atherosclerosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the serum and periarterial adipose tissue leptin/adiponectin and Sfrp5/Wnt5a levels in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD). METHODS A total of 75 patients with PAOD and 39 control subjects were recruited. The serum concentratio...

Abstract In the current work we have investigated the cellular and molecular regulation of resistin secretion in cultured and primary mouse adipocytes. Resistin is an adipose tissue hormone proposed to contribute to metabolic disease. In rodents, resistin is secreted from white adipocytes whereas it is in humans synthesised and released from other cell types within white adipose tissue. The metabolic importance of resistin has been studied in both mouse and man, but the regulation of its release...

Adropin is a nutritionally regulated peptide hormone, secreted primarily by the liver, which modulates metabolic homeostasis in a number of tissues. Growing evidence suggests that adropin is an important regulatory component in a number of cardiovascular pathologies, and may be central to the control of cardiac fuel metabolism and vascular function. In this mini-review, we examine the known facets of adropin biology, discuss open questions in the field, and speculate on the therapeutic potential...

In obesity, abdominal fat, especially accumulation of visceral adipose tissue, increases the risk of metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), cardiovascular disease (CVD) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Excessive amount of abdominal fat is associated with adipose tissue dysfunction leading to systemic low-grade inflammation, fat overflow and ectopic lipid deposition and reduced insulin sensitivity. Physical activity is recommended as the primary prevention and treatment...

The estimated cost of acute injuries in college-level sport in the USA is ∼1.5 billion dollars per year, without taking into account the cost of follow up rehabilitation. In addition to this huge financial burden, without appropriate diagnosis and relevant interventions, sport injuries may be career-ending for some athletes. With a growing number of females participating in contact based and pivoting sports, middle aged individuals returning to sport and natural injuries of ageing all increasing...
