In conditions such as obesity and lipodystrophy, insulin resistance and diabetes are associated with the dysregulation of lipid metabolism in adipose tissue, skeletal muscle and liver. One factor that influences lipid homeostasis in all three of these tissues is lipin 1. Studies in mouse models and humans have established a relationship between lipin 1 levels and both triglyceride storage in adipose tissue and insulin sensitivity. Thus, lipin 1 deficiency in the mouse results in lipodystrophy… CONTINUE READING
