Five human adenovirus subtypes, Ad5, Ad9, Ad31, Ad36, and Ad37, and a non‐human adenovirus, SMAM1, are linked to increased adiposity in vitro or in vivo. Experimental infection with Ad5, Ad36, and Ad37 produced excess adiposity or weight gain in animals. Ad9 and Ad31 increase fat storage in tissue culture but are not associated with animal or human obesity. Ad36 is the most extensively studied adipogenic adenovirus and is correlated with some measure of overweight/obesity in humans from… Expand
Infectobesity: the evaluation of adenovirus-36 infection and obesity
TLDR
A large-scale study incorporating various ethnicities and age groups is required to investigate the worldwide epidemic of obesity and its links with viruses. Expand
Mouse adenovirus type 1 infection of adipose tissue.
TLDR
The data indicate that MAV-1 is not associated with obesity in infected mice and does not detect long-term adipose inflammation, increased adipose tissue mass, or body weight in infected animals. Expand
Using rats as a research model to investigate the effect of human adenovirus 36 on weight gain
TLDR
Rats can be used as a good animal model for further investigations about Ad-36-induced obesity, provided not to rely merely on weight measurements, and longer follow-up duration is needed to develop a significant weight gain in the infected rats. Expand
Adenovirus 36 improves glycemic control and markers of Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis.
TLDR
A proof of concept study shows that in a mouse model of AD, Ad36 improves glycemic control and ameliorates cognitive decline. Expand
Adenovirus 5 produces obesity and adverse metabolic, morphological, and functional changes in the long term in animals fed a balanced diet or a high-fat diet: a study on hamsters
TLDR
The chronic effects of Ad-5 infection on golden (Syrian) hamsters fed either a balanced diet (BD) or a high-fat diet (HFD) and an obesity paradox is presented: at the end of the study, the animals that had the most morphological and functional changes had the lowest body weight. Expand
Viral Infections and Interferons in the Development of Obesity
TLDR
Evidence is examined indicating that gut microbiota uphold intrinsic IFN signaling, which is extensively involved in the regulation of lipid metabolism, and the prolonged IFN responses during persistent viral infections and obesogenesis comprise reciprocal causality between virus susceptibility and obesity. Expand
Viral Infections and Obesity
TLDR
The evidence for a role in the genesis of obesity for viral agents in five broad categories is addressed: adenoviridae, herpesviridae, phages, transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (slow virus), and other encephalitides and hepatitides. Expand
E4orf1: A protein for enhancing glucose uptake despite impaired proximal insulin signaling
TLDR
E4 bypasses the proximal insulin signaling but uses the distal insulin signaling to activate pAkt and in turn Glut4 translocation to improve cellular glucose uptake, and offers a promising template to improve glycemic control when the proxy insulin signaling is impaired. Expand
Virome-wide serological profiling reveals association of herpesviruses with obesity
TLDR
The results suggest that obesity among Qataris may be associated with a higher prevalence of herpesvirus infections, in particular HSV-1. Expand
Virome-wide serological profiling reveals association of herpesviruses with obesity
TLDR
Significant association HSV-1 with obesity in the adult population only is indicated and a set of HSV peptides are identified as candidate obesogenic factors for future studies, in agreement with limited data on the adipogenic properties of HSVs observed in vitro. Expand

Genomic stability of adipogenic human adenovirus 36
TLDR
There were no mutations in the E4orf1 gene, the critical gene for producing obesity, and the very-low-variation rate of Ad36 should reduce concerns about genetic variability when developing Ad36 vaccines or developing assays for detecting Ad36 infection in populations. Expand
Adipogenic potential of multiple human adenoviruses in vivo and in vitro in animals.
TLDR
Ad-37 is another human adenovirus that increases adiposity and reduces serum triglycerides in an animal model, however, the response of serum cholesterol is opposite that of Ad-36. Expand
Obesity-independent Association of Human Adenovirus Ad37 Seropositivity With Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
TLDR
Because fatty liver improves even without weight loss by a “healthy” diet, and not only by lower food caloric intake, Ad37+ may be an adjunctive hallmark of an unfavorable clinical-metabolic profile, if not a causative factor of NAFLD. Expand
Human obesity relationship with Ad36 adenovirus and insulin resistance
TLDR
The results do not support that any Ad36 adipogenic adenovirus effect is operating in human obesity through an insulin-resistance-related mechanism, and a significant association of Ad36 seropositivity with obesity and with essential hypertension in human beings is suggested. Expand
Adipogenic human adenovirus-36 reduces leptin expression and secretion and increases glucose uptake by fat cells
TLDR
The in vitro and ex vivo studies show that Ad-36 modulates adipocyte differentiation, leptin production and glucose metabolism, and whether such a modulation contributes to enhanced adipogenesis and consequent adiposity in Ad- 36 infected animals or humans needs to be determined. Expand
Human adenovirus-36 is associated with increased body weight and paradoxical reduction of serum lipids
TLDR
Ad-36 is associated with increased body weight and lower serum lipids in humans and Prospective studies are indicated to determine if Ad-36 plays a role in the etiology of human obesity. Expand
Human adenovirus Ad-36 promotes weight gain in male rhesus and marmoset monkeys.
TLDR
It is illustrated that the adiposity-promoting effect of Ad-36 occurs in two nonhuman primate species and demonstrates the usefulness of nonhuman primates for further evaluation ofAd-36-induced adiposity. Expand

TLDR
The proposition that virus-induced inflammation is the cellular mechanism underlying Ad36-induced obesity is supported and it is suggested that MCP-1 plays a critical role in Ad36 -induced obesity and that M CP-1 may be a therapeutic target in preventing virus- induced obesity. Expand

TLDR
Ad36 E4orf1 offers a research opportunity to develop a new anti-diabetic agent with multiple potential advantages and conceptually advances the use of a rather unconventional source, microbial proteins, for anti-Diabetic drug development. Expand
Human adenovirus Ad-36 induces adipogenesis via its E4 orf-1 gene
TLDR
Ad-36 E4 orf-1 is a novel inducer of rodent and human adipocyte differentiation process and spanned the entire adipogenic cascade ranging from the upregulation of cAMP, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and p38 signaling pathways, and downregulation of Wnt10b expression. Expand
