    Interleukins as a Common Indicator for the Effects of Both Weather and Obesity on Human Health
    Author(s): Hiroshi MorimotoHiroshi Morimoto

    The influence of weather on human health has been studied for diseases including stroke and ischemic heart disease. The effect of obesity on human health has also been reported, and a connection to insulin resistance has been discussed as a main cause of ischemic diseases. Thus meteorological factors and obesity threaten human health leading to disease such as stroke and ischemic heart diseases. However, there has been no common measure to evaluate the effects both of meteorological factors and obesity simultaneously. In this paper, we propose, as a candidate for this measure, the evaluation of gene expression of interleukins including interleukin 6 (IL-6). Interleukins are a group of small proteins and a subgroup of cytokines, which are important for communications among cells. We extracted from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database several datasets of experiments associated wit.. Read More»
