On the role of placental growth factor in murine adipogenesis.

Abstract

The potential role of placental growth factor (PlGF) in early stages of adipogenesis was investigated in vivo using a murine model of obesity, as well as in vitro using cultured preadipocytes. PlGF-deficient (PlGF-/-) and wild-type (WT) mice, kept on high fat diet (HFD) for 3 weeks, had comparable body weight and weight of subcutaneous (SC) and gonadal (GON… (More)
