Vitamin C inhibits leptin secretion and some glucose/lipid metabolic pathways in primary rat adipocytes.

Abstract

Antioxidant-based treatments are emerging as an interesting approach to possibly counteract obesity fat accumulation complications, since this is accompanied by an increased systemic oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to analyze specific metabolic effects of vitamin C (VC) on epididymal primary rat adipocytes. Cells were isolated and incubated for… (More)
