Mitofusin 2 in Mature Adipocytes Controls Adiposity and Body Weight.

We found that exposure of adult animals to calorie-dense foods rapidly abolished expression of mitofusin 2 (Mfn2), a gene promoting mitochondrial fusion and mitochondrion-endoplasmic reticulum interac...

Mature Human White Adipocytes Cultured under Membranes Maintain Identity, Function, and Can Transdifferentiate into Brown-like Adipocytes.

White adipose tissue (WAT) is a central factor in the development of type 2 diabetes, but there is a paucity of translational models to study mature adipocytes. We describe a method for the culture of...

miR-107 inhibits CDK6 expression, differentiation, and lipid storage in human adipocytes.

MicroRNA-107 (miR-107) plays a regulatory role in obesity and insulin resistance, but the mechanisms of its function in adipocytes have not been elucidated in detail. Here we show that overexpression ...

Strength training and aerobic exercise alter mitochondrial parameters in brown adipose tissue and equally reduce body adiposity in aged rats.

With aging, there is a reduction in mitochondrial activity, and several changes occur in the body composition, including increased adiposity. The dysfunction of mitochondrial activity causes changes a...

Effect of Curcumin and α-Lipoic Acid in Attenuating Weight Gain and Adiposity.

Obesity is growing at epidemic proportions worldwide. Natural compounds curcumin and α-lipoic acid have been shown to reduce body-weight gain in both preclinical and clinical studies. This study exam...

Grains Reduce Adiposity and Improve Nutrition Study

Whole grain intake beneficially affects body weight, body fat and glucose metabolism, and the investigators' previous work has shown that a high whole grain intake significantly reduced bo...

Body Weight-Based Interval Training in Sedentary Overweight and Obese Adults

Body-weight based interval training (IT) performed 3 times per week will lead to reductions in abdominal adiposity and reduce overall body fat percentage in overweight and obese sedentary ...

Central and Peripheral Adiposity and Iron Absorption

Adiposity is a state of sub-clinical inflammation, thus hepcidin is increased in adiposity, often leading to iron deficiency in this population group. Central adiposity is generally consid...

Changes in Body Adiposity by Dual Probiotic Strains Positively Correlated With Changes in Lp-PLA2 Activity in Overweight Adults

The objective was to evaluate the effect of the consumption of dual probiotic strains containing Lactobacillus curvatus (L. curvatus) HY7601 and Lactobacillus plantarum (L. plantarum) KY10...

Integrating the Genetic and Metabolic Faces of Obesity

The goal of this study is to determine why some obese individuals develop insulin resistance and others do not. We hypothesize that an impairment in differentiation of fat cells (adipocyt...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The differentiation of pre-adipocytes into mature ADIPOCYTES.

The amount of fat or lipid deposit at a site or an organ in the body, an indicator of body fat status.

Cells in the body that store FATS, usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES. WHITE ADIPOCYTES are the predominant type and found mostly in the abdominal cavity and subcutaneous tissue. BROWN ADIPOCYTES are thermogenic cells that can be found in newborns of some species and hibernating mammals.

Sustaining BODY WEIGHT after BODY WEIGHT CHANGES have been achieved.

Expected weight of a healthy normal individual based on age, sex, and height. Thus, a malnourished person would weigh less than their ideal body weight.
