BACKGROUND Vascular growth is a prerequisite for adipose tissue (AT) development and expansion. Some AT cytokines and hormones have effects on vascular development, like vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-A), angiopoietin (ANG-1), ANG-2 and angiopoietin-like protein-4 (ANGPTL-4). METHODS In this study, the independent and combined effects of diet-induced weight loss and exercise on AT gene expression and proteins levels of those angiogenic factors were investigated. Seventy-nine obese… CONTINUE READING
