    Adiponectin is one of the most thoroughly studied adipocytokines. Low plasma levels of adiponectin are found to associate with obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and many other human diseases. From animal experiments and human studies, adiponectin has been shown to be a key regulator of...

    Because the role of lipocalin 2 (LCN2) in morbid obesity is still not well defined, the aim of this study was to evaluate the circulating levels and the expression of LCN2 in visceral (VAT) and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) in severely obese (SO) women. We also analyzed its relationship with...

    Obesity is correlated with low-grade inflammation, which provides a potential link between insulin resistance and the endothelial dysfunction present in the early stages of the atherosclerotic process. Adipose tissue has been considered until recently, just a depot for energy storage, which has...

    “Nutrigenomics” refers to the ability of nutrients to alter gene expression. Insulin secreting β-cells exhibit genomic and molecular changes that enhance their function when acutely exposed to physiological concentrations of glucose and fatty acids. However, chronic exposure, such...

    Aims/hypothesis: Autotaxin is a lysophospholipase D that is secreted by adipocytes and whose expression is substantially up-regulated in obese, diabetic db/db mice. The aim of the present study was to depict the physiopathological and cellular mechanisms involved in regulation of adipocyte...

    Obese white adipose tissue (AT) is characterized by large-scale infiltration of proinflammatory macrophages, in parallel with systemic insulin resistance; however, the cellular stimulus that initiates this signaling cascade and chemokine release is still unknown. The objective of this study was...

  • MicroRNAs in adipose tissue: their role in adipogenesis and obesity. Hilton, C; Neville, M J; Karpe, F // International Journal of Obesity;Mar2013, Vol. 37 Issue 3, p325 

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous small RNAs that posttranscriptionally regulate gene expression and that have been shown to have important roles in numerous disease processes. There is growing evidence for an important role of miRNAs in regulating the pathways in adipose tissue that control a...

    TSP1 is an endogenous anti-angiogenic factor and regulator of TGF-β activity and is implicated in the biology of tumor progression, atherosclerosis and arthritis. Major sources of TSP1 are platelets, megakaryocytes, endothelial cells, and macrophages. TSP1 expression has been noted in adipose...
