Hormonal control of metabolic rate can be important in regulating the imbalance between energy intake and expenditure that underlies the development of obesity. In mice fed a high-fat diet, human fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19) increased metabolic rate [1.53 +/- 0.06 liters O(2)/h.kg(0.75) (vehicle) vs. 1.93 +/- 0.05 liters O(2)/h.kg(0.75) (FGF19); P <(More)
A survey of genes differentially expressed in the brown adipose tissue (BAT) of mice exposed to a range of environmental temperatures was carried out to identify novel genes and pathways associated with the transition of this tissue toward an amplified thermogenic state. The current report focuses on an analysis of the expression patterns of 50 metabolic(More)
