In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults and 18 years and older were overweight, and over 340 million children and adolescents age 5-19 were overweight or obese [1]. Obesity is defined as abnormal or excess fat accumulation that may be closely associated with various human diseases, such as hypertension cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and certain cancers [2]. Adipocytes are the cells that primary compose adipose tissue. Thus, obesity results from the factor which adipocytes… Expand

Figures from this paper


Effects of flavonoids and phenolic acids on the inhibition of adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
The results suggest that o-coumaric acid and rutin targeted for adipocyte functions could be effective in improving the symptoms of metabolic syndrome. Expand
Regulation of adipocytokine secretion and adipocyte hypertrophy by polymethoxyflavonoids, nobiletin and tangeretin.
The results suggest that nobiletin and tangeretin are promising therapeutic candidates for the prevention and treatment of insulin resistance by modulating the adipocytokine secretion balance. Expand
Antiproliferative effect of sweet orange peel and its bioactive compounds against human hepatoma cells, in vitro and in vivo
EESP could be a potential useful source for the future application of EESP in liver cancer therapy and its antiproliferative effect is suggested. Expand
Polymethoxyflavones activate Ca2+-dependent apoptotic targets in adipocytes.
It is demonstrated that the apoptotic molecular targets activated by PMFs in adipocytes are Ca(2+)-dependent calpain and caspase-12, and the results provide rationale for evaluating the role of PMF in the prevention and treatment of obesity. Expand
Avicularin, a plant flavonoid, suppresses lipid accumulation through repression of C/EBPα-activated GLUT4-mediated glucose uptake in 3T3-L1 cells.
It is found that avicularin suppressed the accumulation of intracellular lipids through repression of glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4)-mediated glucose uptake in mouse adipocytic 3T3-L1 cells. Expand
Nobiletin suppresses adipogenesis by regulating the expression of adipogenic transcription factors and the activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK).
The results suggest that nobiletin exerts antiadipogenic effects through modulation of the PPARγ and AMPK signaling pathway and, therefore, may be a promising antiobesity agent. Expand
Structure-activity relationship of citrus polymethoxylated flavones and their inhibitory effects on Aspergillus niger.
The structure-activity relationship analysis revealed that, for good inhibitory effect, the 5-OH, 3-OCH₃, and 8-Och₁ functionalities were essential, while the presence of 3-OH and 3'-OCH ₃ greatly reduced inhibition. Expand
Identification of nobiletin metabolites in mouse urine.
By comparing the SFC profiles of metabolite mixtures with the synthesized standard compounds, the major nobiletin metabolite of mouse urine is identified as 4'-dem methylnobiletin, whereas 3'-demethylnobile tin is a minor metabolite. Expand
Hydroxylated polymethoxyflavones and methylated flavonoids in sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) peel.
The isolation and characterization of PMFs from sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) peel will lead to new applications of the byproducts from orange juice processes and other orange consumption in nutraceutical and pharmaceutical products. Expand
Understanding adipocyte differentiation.
Characterization of regulatory regions of adipose-specific genes has led to the identification of the transcription factors peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma and CCAAT/enhancer binding protein (C/EBP), which play a key role in the complex transcriptional cascade during adipocyte differentiation.
