Potential links between metabolic derangements and adipose tissue (AT) inflammation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are unexplored. We investigated AT expressions of interleukin (IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, CD68 (macrophage cell surface receptor), caspase-3, and Bax, and their relationships to the metabolic phenotype(More)
Recently we observed increased adipose tissue (AT) expression of CD40-related signaling proteins but no activation of tumor necrosis factor-α or CD68 in patients with chronic sustained hypoxia resulting from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Transcription factor nuclear factor-κB (NFκB) is involved in cellular responses to hypoxia and activates(More)
