Currently, at the beginning of the 21st century, obesity has become the leading metabolic disease in the world. It is a serious health problem in industrialized countries. Previous research has suggested that decreased preadipocyte differentiation and proliferation and decreased lipogenesis are mechanisms to reduce obesity. In the present study, the effects of capsaicin on the induction of apoptosis and inhibition of lipid accumulation in 3T3-L1 preadipocytes and adipocytes were investigated… 

Ellagic Acid Reduces Adipogenesis through Inhibition of Differentiation-Prevention of the Induction of Rb Phosphorylation in 3T3-L1 Adipocytes

EA is capable of inhibiting adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes possibly through reduction of Cyclin A protein expression and Rb phosphorylation and Alterations in cell cycle-associated proteins may be important with respect to the antiadipogenic action of EA.

The Inhibitory Effect of Betanin on Adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 Adipocytes

Betanin may be a mediator of adipocyte accumulation, leading to the inhibition of lipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and betanin is therefore potentially useful for designing new antiadipogenic agent.

Sulforaphane and myricetin act synergistically to induce apoptosis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes

The results of the present study suggest that the mechanism of SNF/Myr-induced apoptosis involved activation of the Akt-mediated mitochondrial apoptotic pathway, which may aid treatment of animal models of obesity and preclinical testing.

Effects of Capsaicin on Adipogenic Differentiation in Bovine Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cell

Overall, capsaicin inhibits fat deposition by triggering apoptosis by suppressing fat deposition significantly during adipogenic differentiation of bovine bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner.

Effect of capsaicin on transcription factors in 3T3-L1 cell line

It was demonstrated that capsaicin treatment inhibited the adipogenesis through the down-regulation of transcription factors, especially PPARγ, which may involve cell cycle arrest and the induction of apoptosis.

Inhibitory effects of baicalin in the early stage of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes differentiation by down-regulation of PDK1/Akt phosphorylation

Results indicate that the anti-adipogenesis effect of baicalin involves down-regulation of major transcription factors in 3T3-L1 adipocyte differentiation including PPAR-γ, C/EBP-β, and C/ EBP-α through the down- regulation of PDK1/Akt phosphorylation.

Pear pomace water extract inhibits adipogenesis and induces apoptosis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes

Results indicate that pear pomace water extract inhibits adipogenesis and induces apoptosis of adipocytes and thus can be used as a potential therapeutic substance as part of prevention or treatment strategy for obesity.

Capsanthin Inhibits both Adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 Preadipocytes and Weight Gain in High-Fat Diet-Induced Obese Mice

Capsanthin also dose-dependently increased adiponectin and p-AMPK activity in high fat diet animals, suggesting that capsanthin has both anti-obesity and insulin sensitizing activities.



Inhibitory effect of phenolic acids on the proliferation of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes in relation to their antioxidant activity.

In this in vitro study, the inhibitory effect of phenolic acids on 3T3-L1 preadipocytes was evaluated, and a relationship analysis indicated that there is a significant linear correlation between the influence of phenolics on cell population growth and their antioxidant activity.

Esculetin induces mitochondria-mediated apoptosis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes

The results indicate that esculetin mediated adipocyte apoptosis involves the mitochondrial pathway, andEsculetin thus decreases adipocyte number by initiating this apoptotic process in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

Capsaicin inhibits preferentially the NADH oxidase and growth of transformed cells in culture.

The findings correlate capsaicin inhibition of cell surface NADH oxidase activity and inhibition of growth that correlate with Capsaicin-induced apoptosis.

Apoptosis: mechanisms and relevance in cancer

Dysregulation of apoptosis contributes to many diseases, including cancer, on the other hand, apoptosis-regulating proteins also provide targets for drug discovery and new approaches to the treatment of cancer.
