BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The antiobesity effects of suppressed endocannabinoid signaling may rely, at least in part, on changes in lipid fluxes. As fatty acids exert specific effects depending on their level of saturation, we hypothesized that the dietary fatty acid composition would influence the outcome of treatment with a CB(1)-receptor antagonist(More)
BACKGROUND Overactivity and/or dysregulation of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) contribute to development of obesity. In vitro studies indicate a regulatory role for the cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) in adipocyte function and CB1-receptor deficient (CB1-/-) mice are resistant to high fat diet-induced obesity. Whether this phenotype of CB1-/- mice is related(More)
