Unraveling the mode of action of an obesogen: mechanistic analysis of the model obesogen tributyltin in the 3T3-L1 cell line.


Obesogenic compounds are chemicals that have an influence on obesity development. This study was designed to unravel the molecular mechanisms of the model obesogen TBT, using microarray analysis in the 3T3-L1 in vitro system, and to evaluate the use of toxicogenomics for obesogen screening. The microarray results revealed enrichment of Gene Ontology terms… (More)
