  • Validation of a Rapid Method to Assess Habitual Beverage Intake Patterns 

    Hedrick, Valisa E.; Myers, Emily A.; Zoellner, Jamie M.; Duffey, Kiyah J.; Davy, Brenda M. (MDPI, 2018-01-13)
    The Healthy Beverage Index (HBI) is an emerging approach to assess beverage pattern quality. HBI total scores range from 0 to 100, with higher scores indicating greater adherence to proposed beverage recommendations. ...

  • Skeletal muscle autophagy and mitophagy in endurance-trained runners before and after a high-fat meal 

    Tarpey, Michael D.; Davy, Kevin P.; McMillan, Ryan P.; Bowser, Suzanne M.; Halliday, Tanya M.; Boutagy, Nabil E.; Davy, Brenda M.; Frisard, Madlyn I.; Hulver, Matthew W. (Elsevier, 2017-10-24)
    Objective: We tested the hypothesis that skeletal muscle of endurance-trained male runners would exhibit elevated autophagy and mitophagy markers, which would be associated with greater metabolic flexibility following a ...
  • Remodeling Lipid Metabolism and Improving Insulin Responsiveness in Human Primary Myotubes 

    Sparks, Lauren M.; Moro, Cedric; Ukropcova, Barbara; Bajpeyi, Sudip; Civitarese, Anthony E.; Hulver, Matthew M.; Thoresen, G. Hege; Rustan, Arild C.; Smith, Steven R. (PLOS, 2011-07-08)
    Objective: Disturbances in lipid metabolism are strongly associated with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes (T2D). We hypothesized that activation of cAMP/PKA and calcium signaling pathways in cultured human myotubes ...
  • The molecular mechanism linking muscle fat accumulation to insulin resistance 

    Dohm, G. Lynis; Hulver, Matthew W. (The Nutrition Society, 2004)
    Skeletal muscle insulin resistance is a co-morbidity of obesity and a risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Insulin resistance is associated with the accumulation of intramyocellular lipids. ...
  • Fish oil and indomethacin in combination potently reduce dyslipidemia and hepatic steatosis in LDLR⁻/⁻ mice 

    Murali, Ganesan; Milne, Ginger L.; Webb, Corey D.; Stewart, Ann B.; McMillan, Ryan P.; Lyle, Brandon C.; Hulver, Matthew W.; Saraswathi, Viswanathan (ASBMB, 2012-07-29)
    Fish oil (FO) is a potent anti-inflammatory and lipid-lowering agent. Because inflammation can modulate lipid metabolism and vice versa, we hypothesized that combining FO with cyclooxygenase inhibitors (COXIBs), well-known ...
  • Control of mitochondrial metabolism and systemic energy homeostasis by microRNAs 378 and 378* 

    Carrer, Michele; Liu, Ning; Grueter, Chad E.; Williams, Andrew H.; Frisard, Madlyn I.; Hulver, Matthew W.; Bassel-Duby, Rhonda; Olson, Eric N. (NAS, 2012-09-18)
    Obesity and metabolic syndrome are associated with mitochondrial dysfunction and deranged regulation of metabolic genes. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1β (PGC-1β) is a transcriptional coactivator ...
  • Therapeutic effects of adropin on glucose tolerance and substrate utilization in diet-induced obese mice with insulin resistance 

    Gao, Su; McMillan, Ryan P.; Zhu, Qingzhang; Lopaschuk, Gary D.; Hulver, Matthew W.; Butler, Andrew A. (Elsevier, 2015-01-17)
    Objective: The peptide hormone adropin regulates fuel selection preferences in skeletal muscle under fed and fasted conditions. Here, we investigated whether adropin treatment can ameliorate the dysregulation of fuel ...
  • Is increased water consumption among older adults associated with improvements in glucose homeostasis? 

    Clark, Adrienne G.; Dennis Parker, Elizabeth A.; Savla, Jyoti S.; Davy, Kevin P. (Scientific Research, 2013-08)
    Obesity and impaired glucose homeostasis in older adults place these individuals at risk for diabetes. Dehydration, glucose homeostasis, and insulin resistance are related; while aging and dehydration are associated with ...
  • Dietary biomarkers: advances, limitations and future directions 

    Hedrick, Valisa E.; Dietrich, Andrea M.; Estabrooks, Paul A.; Savla, Jyoti; Serrano, Elena; Davy, Brenda M. (BMC, 2012-12-14)
    The subjective nature of self-reported dietary intake assessment methods presents numerous challenges to obtaining accurate dietary intake and nutritional status. This limitation can be overcome by the use of dietary ...
  • Predictors of Successful Weight Loss Maintenance: A Qualitative Comparative Analysis 

    Baugh, Mary E.; Savla, Jyoti; Akers, Jeremy D.; Raynor, Hollie A.; Davy, Kevin P.; Davy, Brenda M. (Scientific Research, 2014-05)
    Individuals successful at weight loss maintenance (WTLM) utilize similar behaviors but in varying amounts and combinations. Research identifying characteristics which predict WTLM success could be used to develop effective ...
