Caption: Figure 3: MTT cell viability assay of control adipocytes and adipocytes treated with Pingmu Decoction serum.
Using HPLC, four PFs (1, 2, 3, and 4), ranging from 3 kDa to 10 kDa, were fractionated and investigated for their inhibitory activity on adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. The most effective PF2 was then further purified, generating two peptides, pOh1 and pOh2.
In the present study, we analyzed the effect of FGF21 on adipose tissue lipolysis in a murine model of DSS-induced colitis and in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. We showed that absence of FGF21 attenuates experimental colitis-induced adipose tissue lipolysis, and the effect may be mediated by IL-6 pathway.
Differentiation of preadipocytes to mature adipocytes is characterized by the accumulation of lipid over the course of 1-2 weeks in vitro where the cell progresses through multiple stages characterized by key changes to gene expression [5].
One branch was MSCs to adipocyte progenitors to pre-adipocytes.
Immunohistochemical (perilipin) and histologic (H and E) examination of samples showed better-maintained integrity of adipocytes in fat grafts treated with topical curcumin, and less cellular infiltration, hemorrhage, cyst/vacuole formation, and more vascularization in both the early and the late period.
In very recent work, we successfully developed defined media for the differentiation and maintenance of adipocytes derived from ASCs (Volz and Kluger, 2018).
IRX3 promotes the browning of white adipocytes and its rare variants are associated with human obesity risk.
Moreover, MAPK pathway is closely related to the differentiation of preadipocytes to adipocytes [15,16].
The white adipocytes 3T3-L1 cells were purchased from ATCC and cultured in DMEM medium containing 10% newborn calf serum (NBCS).
Adult BMSCs can differentiate into many cell types such as adipocytes, osteoblasts, and chondrocytes in the bone.
Briefly, adipose for cell fractionation was minced, collagenase-digested, and fractionated into adipocytes and stromal vascular fractions (SVF) as previously described [24].
