      Ibrahim, Mohammad Madani; Fjære, Even; Lock, Erik-Jan; Naville, Danielle; Amlund, Heidi; Meugnier, Emmanuelle; Battistoni, Brigitte Le Magueresse; Frøyland, Livar; Madsen, Lise; Jessen, Niels; Lund, Sten; Vidal, Hubert; Ruzzin, Jérôme (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-09-23)
      Background: Dietary interventions are critical in the prevention of metabolic diseases. Yet, the effects of fatty fish consumption on type 2 diabetes remain unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a diet ...
    • Effects of Frozen Storage on Phospholipid Content in Atlantic Cod Fillets and the Influence on Diet-Induced Obesity in Mice 

      Fauske, Kristin Røen; Bernhard, Annette; Fjære, Even; Myrmel, Lene Secher; Frøyland, Livar; Kristiansen, Karsten; Liaset, Bjørn; Madsen, Lise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-05-30)
      A large fraction of the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in cod fillet is present in the form of phospholipids (PLs). Freezing initiates hydrolysis of the PLs present in the fillet. Here, we compared the effects of ...
    • The impact of different animal-derived protein sources on adiposity and glucose homeostasis during ad libitum feeding and energy restriction in already obese mice 

      Myrmel, Lene Secher; Fauske, Kristin Røen; Fjære, Even; Bernhard, Annette; Liisberg, Ulrike; Hasselberg, Astrid Elise; Øyen, Jannike; Kristiansen, Karsten; Madsen, Lise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-05-23)
      Low-fat diets and energy restriction are recommended to prevent obesity and to induce weight loss, but high-protein diets are popular alternatives. However, the importance of the protein source in obesity prevention and ...
    • One-Year Treatment with Olanzapine Depot in Female Rats: Metabolic Effects 

      Ersland, Kari Merete; Myrmel, Lene Secher; Fjære, Even; Berge, Rolf Kristian; Madsen, Lise; Steen, Vidar Martin; Skrede, Silje (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-05)
      Background: Antipsychotic drugs can negatively affect the metabolic status of patients, with olanzapine as one of the most potent drugs. While patients are often medicated for long time periods, experiments in rats typically ...
    • Role of the Neutral Amino Acid Transporter SLC7A10 in Adipocyte Lipid Storage, Obesity and Insulin Resistance 

      Jersin, Regine Å.; Tallapragada, Divya Sri Priyanka; Madsen, André; Skartveit, Linn; Fjære, Even; McCann, Adrian; Dyer, Laurence; Willems, Aron; Bjune, Jan-Inge; Bjune, Mona S.; Våge, Villy; Nielsen, Hans Jørgen; Thorsen, Håvard Luong; Nedrebø, Bjørn Gunnar; Busch, Christian; Steen, Vidar M.; Blüher, Matthias; Jacobson, Peter; Svensson, Per-Arne; Fernø, Johan; Rydén, Mikael; Arner, Peter; Nygård, Ottar; Claussnitzer, Melina; Ellingsen, Ståle; Madsen, Lise; Sagen, Jørn V.; Mellgren, Gunnar; Dankel, Simon N (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Elucidation of mechanisms that govern lipid storage, oxidative stress, and insulin resistance may lead to improved therapeutic options for type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related diseases. Here, we find that adipose ...
    • UCP1 induction during recruitment of Brown Adipocytes in White Adipose tissue is dependent on Cyclooxygenase activity 

      Madsen, Lise; Pedersen, Lone M.; Lillefosse, Haldis Haukaas; Fjære, Even; Brønstad, Ingeborg; Hao, Qin; Petersen, Rasmus Koefoed; Hallenborg, Philip; Ma, Tao; De Matteis, Rita; Araujo, Pedro; Mercader, Josep; Bonet, M. Luisa; Hansen, Jacob B.; Cannon, Barbara; Nedergaard, Jan; Wang, Jun; Cinti, Saverio; Voshol, Peter; Døskeland, Stein Ove; Kristiansen, Karsten (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2010-06-30)
      Background The uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) is a hallmark of brown adipocytes and pivotal for cold- and diet-induced thermogenesis. Methodology/Principal Findings Here we report that cyclooxygenase (COX) activity and ...
