Genetic variance and lipolysis regulation: implications for obesity.

Abstract

Catecholamines are the major lipolytic hormones in human fat cells, and lipolytic catecholamine resistance is described in obesity. Studies on twins and in rare genetic disorders suggest a strong heredity component of catecholamine-induced lipolysis. Polymorphisms in catecholamine receptor signalling pathways have been described, several of which associate… (More)
