... that the capacity of adipose tissue to safely store fat may be vital. This paper explores some of the evidence suggesting that the risk of developing metabolic disturbances is not related to how much fat an individual has, but how well their fat can expand to accommodate the caloric excess. If this is true...

...P. Trayhurn; I.S. Wood White adipose tissue (WAT) is a major endocrine and secretory organ, which releases a wide range of protein signals and factors termed adipokines. A number of adipokines, including leptin, adiponectin, tumour necrosis factor α, IL-1β (interleukin 1β), IL-6, monocyte...

...S.W. Coppack This review gives a broad description of some of the changes in adipose tissue seen in obesity. There are multiple changes in adipose tissue in obesity: histological, neural and vascular, relating to lipid and carbo-hydrate metabolism and to adipose tissue's endocrine functions. Some...

...F. Karpe; G.D. Tan Insulin resistance is often seen as a consequence of obesity and there are several possible links between adipose tissue function and insulin resistance determined in other organs such as skeletal muscle or liver. One such link is the regulation of NEFA (non-esterified fatty acid...

... metabolism. To test this, we examined mRNA levels for the three PPAR isoforms in tissues of WT (wild-type) and CD36-deficient mice following the administration of saline, glucose or olive oil by intragastric gavage. Compared with WT mice, CD36-null mice had 5–10-fold increased PPAR mRNA in adipose tissue...

...M. Guerre-Millo It is now recognized that the WAT (white adipose tissue) produces a variety of bioactive peptides, collectively termed ‘adipokines’. Alteration of WAT mass in obesity or lipoatrophy affects the production of most adipose secreted factors. Since both conditions are associated...
