Loss of fat mass in cancer cachexia is linked to increased adipocyte lipolysis; however, the fate of the excess fatty acids (FA) generated by lipolysis is not known. We investigated if the adipocyte-specific gene cell death-inducing DNA fragmentation factor-alpha-like effector A (CIDEA) could be involved. CIDEA mRNA expression was assessed in s.c. white(More)
BACKGROUND Mice lacking Receptor-interacting protein 140 (RIP140) have reduced body fat which at least partly is mediated through increased lipid and glucose metabolism in adipose tissue. In humans, RIP140 is lower expressed in visceral white adipose tissue (WAT) of obese versus lean subjects. We investigated the role of RIP140 in human subcutaneous WAT,(More)
