Adrenalectomy increases brown adipose tissue metabolism in ob/ob mice housed at 35 degrees C.

Abstract

Adrenalectomy arrests the development of obesity in ob/ob mice fed a high-starch diet and housed at a normal room temperature (20-25 degrees C) partly by stimulating the low thermogenic activity of brown adipose tissue (BAT). The present study was undertaken to determine if adrenalectomy would also lower energy retention and stimulate BAT metabolism in ob… (More)
