Obesity is an important background of metabolic syndrome progression. Our previous study demonstrated that chemokine CCL2 expression was suppressed in liver of obese mice that were highly susceptible to Listeria monocytogenes infection. We investigated the role of adiponectin in CCL2 expression in obese mice after L. monocytogenes infection. When leptin-deficient obese ob/ob mice were infected intraperitoneally with L. monocytogenes, the elimination of bacteria from spleen, liver, mesenteric… CONTINUE READING
