Obesity is crucially involved in many metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Regulating the number or size of adipocytes has been suggested to be a potential treatment for obesity. In this study, we investigated the effect of pyrocincholic acid 3β-O-β-d-quinovopyranosyl-28-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (PAQG), a 27-nor-oleanolic acid saponin extracted from Metadina trichotoma, on adipogenesis and lipid metabolism in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. The 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes…

Adipogenesis Inhibitory Activity of Hypersampsone P from Hypericum subsessile
The treatment of cells at the early stage of adipogenesis by hypersampsone P induced the greatest blunting of adipocyte differentiation and the effect might be involved in the LKB1-AMPK signaling pathway.


Fipronil promotes adipogenesis via AMPKα-mediated pathway in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
Rutaecarpine analogues reduce lipid accumulation in adipocytes via inhibiting adipogenesis/lipogenesis with AMPK activation and UPR suppression.
The results suggest that rutaecarpine analogues may have therapeutic potential for obesity and related metabolic disorders and the mechanism involves the suppression of adipogenic/lipogenic proteins and the suppressed of the UPR pathway possibly via the AMPK.
A Citrus bergamia Extract Decreases Adipogenesis and Increases Lipolysis by Modulating PPAR Levels in Mesenchymal Stem Cells from Human Adipose Tissue
Citrus bergamia extract suppressed the accumulation of intracellular lipids in mesenchymal stem cells during adipogenic differentiation and promoted lipolysis by repressing the expression of adipogenic genes and activating lipolytic genes.
Berberine Suppresses Adipocyte Differentiation via Decreasing CREB Transcriptional Activity
It is found that berberine significantly suppressed the expressions of CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP)α, peroxisome proliferators-activated receptor γ2 (PPARγ2), and other adipogenic genes in the process of adipogenesis.
Transcriptional Regulation of Adipocyte Differentiation: A Central Role for CCAAT/Enhancer-binding Protein (C/EBP) β*
Advances toward elucidation of the function and roles of the post-translational modification of C/EBPβ during adipogenesis will greatly improve the understanding of the molecular mechanisms governing adipogenesis.
Regulation of Visceral and Subcutaneous Adipocyte Lipolysis by Acute AICAR‐induced AMPK Activation
Despite different fat depots eliciting distinct rates of lipolysis, acute AICAR‐induced AMPK activation suppressed HSL phosphorylation/activation and exerted similar antilipolytic effects on both VC and SC adipocytes.
Adipocyte differentiation and gene expression.
This article discusses the various models used for studying the preadipocyte differentiation process and focuses on those genetic events that link effectors to induction of adipocyte gene expression, with the mouse 3T3-L1 cell culture line described in detail.
Arctigenin Inhibits Adipogenesis by Inducing AMPK Activation and Reduces Weight Gain in High‐Fat Diet‐Induced Obese Mice
It is demonstrated that ARC can reduce key adipogenic factors by activating the AMPK in vitro and in vivo and suggests a therapeutic implication of ARC for obesity treatment.
