Catecholamine-induced lipolysis in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle in obesity.

Abstract

Increased fat storage in adipose and non-adipose tissue (e.g. skeletal muscle) characterizes the obese insulin resistant state. Disturbances in pathways of lipolysis may play a role in the development and maintenance of these increased fat stores. A reduced catecholamine-induced lipolysis may contribute to the development and maintenance of increased… (More)
