Transgenic mice overexpressing nesfatin/nucleobindin-2 are susceptible to high-fat diet-induced obesity


Background:Nesfatin/Nucleobindin-2 (Nesf/NUCB2), a precursor of nesfatin-1, an anorexigenic protein, is ubiquitously expressed in peripheral tissues in addition to the hypothalamus. However, the role of intracellular Nesf/NUCB2 has not been established in the periphery.Methods:Nesf/NUCB2-transgenic (Tg) mice were generated, and chronological changes of body… (More)
