Obestatin is a 23-amino-acid peptide encoded by the same gene as ghrelin. Because there is a paucity of data concerning the effects of exercise on obestatin, this study investigated the effect of anaerobic exercise training-detraining on obestatin and growth hormone (GH) plasma levels. Ten young female volunteers participated. Blood was collected 24 h before, and 24 h, 48 h and 7 days after the training. The data indicate that anaerobic training caused a significant reduction in GH levels but had no effect on plasma obestatin concentrations.

    Abstract??Brd2 is a novel protein kinase and plays a role in cell cycle-responsive transcription. Recent studies show that Brd2 contributes to E2F-1 regulated cell cycle progression. In this process, Brd2 exhibits scaffold or transcriptional adapter functions and mediates recruitment of both...

    The serine protease plasmin can efficiently degrade amyloid peptide in vitro, and is found at low levels in the hippocampus of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The cause of such paucity remains unknown. We show here that the levels of total brain plasminogen and plasminogen-binding...
