Differential gene expression in adipose tissue from obese human subjects during weight loss and weight maintenance

submitted by: tekn-ada
Background: Differential gene expression in adipose tissue during diet-induced weight loss followed by a weight stability period is poorly characterized. Markers of these processes may provide a deeper understanding of underlying mechanisms. Objective: We aimed to identify differentially expressed genes in human adipose tissue during weight loss and weight maintenance after weight loss. Design: RNA from subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue from 9 obese subjects was analyzed by using a...
