Impaired in vivo stimulation of lipolysis in adipose tissue by selective beta2-adrenergic agonist in obese adolescent girls.

Abstract

Studies performed in adults with long-standing obesity suggest a reduced lipolytic sensitivity to catecholamines in subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue (AT). We used microdialysis to study the in situ lipolytic effects of dobutamine (selective beta1-agonist) and terbutaline (selective beta2-agonist) on glycerol release (lipolytic index) in abdominal… (More)
