Ubiquitin immunoreactivity was virtually undetectable in control and NDEA-exposed cerebella (Figs. 1-D1, 1-D2), but slightly increased in the Purkinje and granule cell layers of HFD-fed cerebella (Fig. 1-D3). Rats exposed to NDEA, and also chronically fed with the HFD, had prominently increased ubiquitin immunoreactivity in Purk

Ration have soared over the past several decades, suggesting that exposures rather than genetics dictate their etiologies. Our over-arching hypothesis is that shifts in lifestyles and economics have led us to chronically consume excess fat, and get exposed to agents that cause insulin resistance. Consideration given to potential pathogenic agents was focused by the experimental evidence showing th
