Abstract:
Obesity is currently a worldwide health problem associated with conditions such as type 2 diabetes. It has been reported that connexins may be involved in adipogenesis but the underlying mechanism remains unresolved. Adipose tissue from male Zucker fatty rats (falfa), male lean rats (fa-I-) and 3T3-Ll cells were investigated for connexin (Cx) and pannexin expression profiles, Cx localization and function and lipid accumulation during the differentiation programme.
