Adiponutrin is a recently identified gene of unknown function that is expressed exclusively in adipose tissues. To provide information about its physiological regulation and possible function, the effect of meal-feeding rats on the expression of adiponutrin mRNA in white adipose tissue was studied. A high-sucrose meal increased adiponutrin mRNA levels by at(More)
A number of adipose-specific genes, including adiponutrin and the adipocytokines, appear to be involved in regulating overall energy balance, as their expression is dysregulated in various obese states and is responsive to feeding. This study determined the effect of meal-feeding diets of markedly different macronutrient composition (70% by weight protein(More)
