Adipocyte differentiation (adipogenesis) plays an important role in obesity and energy homeostasis. Adipose tissue secretes multiple cytokines and adipokines which can cause the complications of obesity,(More)
During the development of obesity, adipose tissue releases a host of different adipokines and inflammatory cytokines, such as leptin, resistin, tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), Interleukin-6 (IL-6), and adiponectin, which mediate insulin resistance. Recently, some microRNAs (miRNAs) regulated by adiponectin were identified as novel targets for controlling(More)
