Chronic angiotensin AT2R activation prevents high-fat diet-induced adiposity and obesity in female mice independent of estrogen.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Obesity is a known risk factor for various metabolic disorders and cardiovascular diseases. Recently we demonstrated that female angiotensin AT2 receptor (AT2R) knockout mice on high-fat diet (HFD) had higher body weight and adiposity with a parallel reduction in estrogen (17,β-estradiol/E2). The present study investigated whether the anti… (More)
