Toll‑like receptor 2 mediates deposition of collagen I in adipose tissue of high fat diet‑induced obese mice.

Abstract

Obesity is marked by deposition of collagen I in adipose tissue. Toll like receptor (TLR)2 is involved in lipid metabolism, however the association between TLR2 and collagen I remains unclear. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of TLR2 knockout on collagen I in adipose tissue in obese mice. TLR2 knockout and C57BL/6J mice (aged 4 weeks… (More)
