IL-6-Type Cytokine Signaling in Adipocytes Induces Intestinal GLP-1 Secretion.

We recently showed that interleukin (IL)-6-type cytokine signaling in adipocytes induces free fatty acid release from visceral adipocytes, thereby promoting obesity-induced hepatic insulin resistance and steatosis. In addition, IL-6-type cytokines …

Mesenteric Fat Lipolysis Mediates Obesity-Associated Hepatic Steatosis and Insulin Resistance.

Hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance are among the most prevalent metabolic disorders and are tightly associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes. However, the underlying mechanisms linking obesity to hepatic lipid accumulation and insulin …

Glycoprotein 130 receptor signaling mediates alpha-cell dysfunction in a rodent model of type 2 diabetes.

Dysregulated glucagon secretion accompanies islet inflammation in type 2 diabetes. We recently discovered that interleukin (IL)-6 stimulates glucagon secretion from human and rodent islets. IL-6 family cytokines require the glycoprotein 130 (gp130) …

Neuronal gp130 expression is crucial to prevent neuronal loss, hyperinflammation, and lethal course of murine Toxoplasma encephalitis.

The obligate intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii infects and persists within neurons of approximately one-third of the human population. Intracerebral control of T. gondii largely depends on interferon (IFN)-gamma-producing T cells, which induce …

gp130 on macrophages/granulocytes modulates inflammation during experimental tuberculosis.

gp130 is a common receptor chain for cytokines such as interleukin (IL)-27 and IL-6. During experimental tuberculosis (TB), IL-27 prevents optimal antimycobacterial protection and limits the pathological sequelae of chronic inflammation. The …

Gp130-dependent astrocytic survival is critical for the control of autoimmune central nervous system inflammation.

Astrocytes are activated in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and have been suggested to either aggravate or ameliorate EAE. However, the mechanisms leading to an adverse or protective effect of astrocytes on the course of EAE are …

Continuous glycoprotein-130-mediated signal transducer and activator of transcription-3 activation promotes inflammation, left ventricular rupture, and adverse outcome in subacute myocardial infarction.

BACKGROUND: In patients with myocardial infarction, high serum levels of interleukin-6 cytokines predict a poor outcome. The common receptor of interleukin-6 cytokines, glycoprotein-130 (gp130), signals via janus kinase/signal transducer and …

Preconditioning-induced protection of photoreceptors requires activation of the signal-transducing receptor gp130 in photoreceptors.

Retinal degenerations are a class of neurodegenerative disorders that ultimately lead to blindness due to the death of retinal photoreceptors. In most cases, death is the result of long-term exposure to environmental, inflammatory, and genetic …

Hepatocyte gp130 deficiency reduces vascular remodeling after carotid artery ligation.

Inflammation and vascular remodeling are hallmarks of atherosclerosis, hypertension, and restenosis after angioplasty. Here we investigated the role of the hepatocyte gp130-dependent systemic acute phase response on vascular remodeling after carotid …

T-cell-specific deletion of gp130 renders the highly susceptible IL-10-deficient mouse resistant to intestinal nematode infection.

Gp130 is the common receptor of the IL-6 family of cytokines and is involved in many biological processes, including acute phase response, inflammation and immune reactions. To investigate the role of gp130 under inflammatory conditions, …
