The balance of contradictory signals experienced by preadipocytes influences whether these cells undergo adipogenesis. In addition to the endocrine system, these signals originate from the preadipocytes themselves or operate as part of a feedback loop involving mature adipocytes. The factors that regulate adipogenesis either promote or block the cascade of transcription factors that coordinate the differentiation process. Some of the positive factors reviewed include insulin-like growth factor… Expand
Adamts1 responds to systemic cues and gates adipogenesis
TLDR
This paper discusses the study that identified an Adamts1 signal as a glucocorticoid and diet responsive regulator of an extracellular relay system that modulates the initiation of this intracellular adipogenesis program in APCs and describes how it was applied to study the early response to high-fat diet in vivo.

The mechanobiology of adipocytes in the context of diabetes
Abstract We describe the mechanobiology of adipocytes in varying stages of their development, from mesenchymal stem cells, to lineage-committed preadipocytes, through the adipogenesis to adipocytes,Expand
Pref-1, a Gatekeeper of Adipogenesis
TLDR
The recent evidence for the role of Pref-1 in adipogenesis is highlighted and it is shown that the preadipocyte state is maintained and brown adipocyte differentiation and its thermogenic function is prevented. Expand
Myostatin modulates adipogenesis to generate adipocytes with favorable metabolic effects
TLDR
Modulation of the final stages of adipogenesis may provide a novel approach to understanding and treating metabolic disease. Expand
Connecting Bone and Fat: the Potential Role for Sclerostin
TLDR
SOST is able to induce adipogenesis in certain preadipocytes, however, bone-specific studies are needed to determine the effect of local SOST concentrations in healthy and disease models on bone marrow adipose tissue. Expand
MicroRNA regulation in mammalian adipogenesis
TLDR
The most recent and relevant findings that support the role of several miRNAs as pro- or anti-adipogenic factors regulating adipogenesis in mice, human and cattle are reviewed to propose the future role of miRNA in adipogenesis of farm animal models. Expand
New insights into inhibitors of adipogenesis

  • Current opinion in lipidology
  • 2004
TLDR
A number of promising extra- and intracellular inhibitors of fat cell formation have been identified, but the modulation of adipose tissue mass may have both advantageous and deleterious health effects. Expand
Adipocyte and adipogenesis.
TLDR
Adipogenesis is the process during which fibroblast like preadipocytes developed into mature adipocytes, a well-orchestrated multistep process that requires the sequential activation of numerous transcription factors, including the CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP) gene family and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ).

ON ENDOCRINE SIGNALLING Tumour necrosis factor : a key regulator of adipose tissue mass
In addition to its established role in the immune system, tumour necrosis factor (TNF ) exerts complex regulatory actions on adipose tissue. TNF is produced in and secreted by the adipocyte and thusExpand
The effect of pleiotrophin signaling on adipogenesis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PTN plays a negative role in adipogensis and that glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK‐3β) and β‐catenin are involved in the regulation of PTN‐mediated preadipocyte differentiation. Expand

Molecular regulation of adipogenesis.
TLDR
The hormonal and transcriptional control of adipogenesis is reviewed, as well as studies on a less well known type of fat cell, the brown adipocyte, which may one day shed light on basic questions of cellular growth and differentiation in addition to possible benefits in human health. Expand
Transcriptional control of adipogenesis.
The major transcriptional factors involved in the adipogenic process include proteins belonging to the CCAAT/enhancer binding protein family, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma, andExpand
Function of GATA transcription factors in preadipocyte-adipocyte transition.
TLDR
It is shown that murine GATA-2 and Gata-3 are specifically expressed in white adipocyte precursors and that their down-regulation sets the stage for terminal differentiation. Expand
Stimulation of adipogenesis in fibroblasts by PPARγ2, a lipid-activated transcription factor
TLDR
The results suggest that the physiologic role of PPAR gamma 2 is to regulate development of the adipose lineage in response to endogenous lipid activators and that this factor may serve to link the process of adipocyte differentiation to systemic lipid metabolism. Expand
Inhibition of Adipogenesis Through MAP Kinase-Mediated Phosphorylation of PPARγ
TLDR
Results indicate that covalent modification of PPARγ by serum and growth factors is a major regulator of the balance between cell growth and differentiation in the adipose cell lineage. Expand
PPARγ Is Required for the Differentiation of Adipose Tissue In Vivo and In Vitro
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that mice chimeric for wild-type and PPARγ null cells show little or no contribution of null cells to adipose tissue, whereas most other organs examined do not require PParγ for proper development. Expand
Prostaglandins Promote and Block Adipogenesis through Opposing Effects on Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor γ*
TLDR
It is reported here that PGF2α blocks adipogenesis through activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase, resulting in inhibitory phosphorylation of PPARγ, a nuclear hormone receptor that is central to adipogenic determination. Expand
Understanding adipocyte differentiation.
TLDR
Characterization of regulatory regions of adipose-specific genes has led to the identification of the transcription factors peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma and CCAAT/enhancer binding protein (C/EBP), which play a key role in the complex transcriptional cascade during adipocyte differentiation.

CREB Activation Induces Adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 Cells
TLDR
The data firmly establish CREB as a primary regulator of adipogenesis and suggest that CREB may play similar roles in other cells and tissues. Expand
Cross-Regulation of C/EBPα and PPARγ Controls the Transcriptional Pathway of Adipogenesis and Insulin Sensitivity
TLDR
Results define multiple roles for C/EBPα in adipogenesis and show that cross-regulation between PPARγ and C/ EBPα is a key component of the transcriptional control of this cell lineage. Expand
