The relationship between interscapular brown adipose tissue (IBAT) thermogenic potential and vitamin A status was investigated by studying the effects of feeding a vitamin A-deficient diet and all-trans retinoic acid (tRA) treatment on body weight and IBAT parameters in mice. Feeding a vitamin A-deficient diet tended to trigger opposite effects to those of tRA treatment, namely increased body weight, IBAT weight, adiposity and leptin mRNA expression, and reduced IBAT thermogenic potential in… CONTINUE READING
