  • Subsequently, we showed that the expression of genes known as adipogenic mediators, including PPARγ1/γ2, FABP-4 and adiponectin was similar in both TAT and SAT.

  • It was also noticed that it can inhibit the cytoplasmic lipid accumulation and adipogenic differentiation of preadipocytes.

  • Conversely, the hMSCs in adipogenic medium under hypoxic conditions have significantly more FP than their normoxic counterpart after day 4.

  • Higher magnification transmission images of HA and NA (bottom images, bar = 50 µm) before staining reveal larger, more numerous lipid droplets in hMSCs cultured in adipogenic differentiation medium at 20% oxygen.

  • Furthermore, one of the adipogenic transcription factor, adipocyte determination and differentiation dependent factor 1/sterol regulatory element-binding protein 1c (ADD1/SREBP1c) was shown to bind to the hres gene promoter and ectopic expression of ADD1/SREBP1c significantly increased the expression of resistin mRNA in mouse adipocytes

  • That PPARγ binds to an enhancer located ~8. 8 kb upstream of the mouse resistin gene transcriptional start site and this confers adipogenic expression of mouse resistin has recently been reported

  • We identify distinct patterns of changes in these quantitative biomarkers as a function of differentiation pathway (i.e. adipogenic vs. osteogenic) and of ambient oxygen concentration.

  • In adipogenic differentiation, growth arrest, which can be mediated by cell contact inhibition when cells reach confluence, is a prerequisite for the initiation of differentiation
