Objective:To analyze, in morbid obese patients, the expression of several human genes regulating cortisol metabolism, such as glucocorticoid receptor (GR), 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11βHSD1), 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (11βHSD2), stearoyl-acute regulatory protein (StAR), 5α-reductase type I (5α-R) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) in two different adipose depots. A second objective was to characterize the circadian rhythmicity of these genes in… 
Circadian Rhythm of Clock Genes in Human Adipose Explants
TLDR
Data demonstrate the presence of peripheral circadian oscillators in human AT independently of the central circadian control mechanism, which paves the way for a better understanding of the circadian contribution to medical conditions such as obesity and MetS.
An approximation to the temporal order in endogenous circadian rhythms of genes implicated in human adipose tissue metabolism
TLDR
An overall view of the internal temporal order of circadian rhythms in human adipose tissue is provided including genes implicated in metabolic processes such as energy intake and expenditure, insulin resistance, adipocyte differentiation, dyslipidemia, and body fat distribution.
Site-specific circadian expression of leptin and its receptor in human adipose tissue.
TLDR
Circadian rhythmicity has been demonstrated in leptin and its receptor in human AT cultures in a site-specific manner and paves the way for a better understanding of the autocrine/paracrine role of leptin in human adipose tissue.
Adipose Tissue as a Peripheral Clock
TLDR
Investigation of circadian rhythms in adipose tissues will provide insight into the physiology of energy homeostasis and the etiology of metabolic diseases such as obesity.
Altered Clock Gene Expression in Obese Visceral Adipose Tissue Is Associated with Metabolic Syndrome
TLDR
Obese subjects with MS exhibited positive correlation in the PER2 gene with LDL cholesterol, whereas REV-ERB ALPHA was correlated with waist circumference in the obese population, and CRY2 and REv-ERb ALPHA are identified as the clock genes upregulated in obesity during the 24 h period.
Glucocorticoids Affect 24 h Clock Genes Expression in Human Adipose Tissue Explant Cultures
TLDR
ClOCK, BMAL1 and PER2 expression exhibited circadian patterns in both VAT and SAT explants that were adjusted to a typical 24 h sinusoidal curve and these patterns were altered by dexamethasone exposure.
Expression Profile of mRNAs Encoding Core Circadian Regulatory Proteins in Human Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue: Correlation with Age and Body Mass Index
TLDR
These data confirm and extend findings that link the CCRP and circadian mechanisms to the risk of obesity.
Diurnal Variation in Vascular and Metabolic Function in Diet-Induced Obesity
TLDR
It is concluded that vascular tissues are less sensitive to pathological disruption of diurnal rhythms during obesity than metabolic tissues and suggested that cellular disruption of clock gene rhythmicity may occur by mechanisms shared with inflammation but distinct from those leading to insulin resistance.
De Novo and Depot-Specific Androgen Production in Human Adipose Tissue: A Source of Hyperandrogenism in Women with Obesity
TLDR
It is hypothesize that AT is a de novo site of androgen production and the backdoor pathway of steroidogenesis might be a new pathomechanism for hyperandrogenism in women with obesity.

Regulation of 11beta-HSD genes in human adipose tissue: influence of central obesity and weight loss.
TLDR
Increased expression of the 11beta-HSD1 gene is associated with metabolic abnormalities in obese women and that increased expression of this gene may contribute to the previously reported increased local conversion of cortisone to cortisol in adipose tissue of obese individuals.
Regulation of Expression of 11β-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 1 in Adipose Tissue: Tissue-Specific Induction by Cytokines.
TLDR
It is suggested that the increased activity and expression of the enzyme 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11βHSD1) generating active cortisol from cortisone within adipose tissue may be crucial in the pathogenesis of obesity.
Regulation of expression of 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 in adipose tissue: tissue-specific induction by cytokines.
TLDR
Tissue-specific 11betaHSD1 regulation offers the potential for selective enzyme inhibition within adipose tissue as a novel therapy for visceral obesity.
Expression of 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 in adipose tissue is not increased in human obesity.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the enzyme 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11beta-HSD1), by converting inactive cortisone to active cortisol in adipose tissue, might be an important autocrine regulator of fat mass.
Glucocorticoids and 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 in obesity and the metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
Inhibition of this enzyme appears to be an attractive option to treat metabolic disease, and selective 11beta-HSD1 inhibitors in rodents cause weight loss, improve insulin sensitivity and delay progression of cardiovascular disease.
Regulation of 11β‐HSD Genes in Human Adipose Tissue: Influence of Central Obesity and Weight Loss
TLDR
Increased expression of the 11 -HSD1gene is associated with metabolic abnormal-ities in obese women and that increased expression of this gene may contribute to the previously reported increased local conversion of cortisone to cortisol in adipose tissue ofobese individuals.
Effect of DHEA-sulfate on adiponectin gene expression in adipose tissue from different fat depots in morbidly obese humans.
TLDR
DHEA-S treatment is shown for the first time in humans to be a strong upregulator of adiponectin gene expression in omental adipocytes, suggesting that the positive effects observed by DHEA -S treatment in humans suffering from metabolic syndrome could be exerted through overexpression of adip onectin in the visceral depot.
Understanding the role of glucocorticoids in obesity: tissue-specific alterations of corticosterone metabolism in obese Zucker rats.
TLDR
Compared corticosterone metabolism in vivo and in vitro in male obese and lean Zucker rats, aged 9 weeks, concludes that greater inactivation of glucocorticoids by 5alpha-reductase in liver and 11betaHSD2 in kidney combined with impaired reactivation of gluc Cocorticoidoids by 11 betaHSD1 in liver may increase the MCR of gluccorticoidal concentrations and decrease local glucoc Corticoid concentrations at these sites.
