Autophagy in adipose tissue of patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Pathophysiology of obesity is closely associated with enhanced autophagy in adipose tissue (AT). Autophagic process can promote survival or activate cell death. Therefore, we examine the occurrence of autophagy in AT of type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients in comparison to obese and lean individuals without diabetes. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS… (More)
