Transcriptional activation of adipogenesis

Zhidan Wu, Pere Puigserver, Bruce M. Spiegelman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Studies from the past several years have revealed that adipogenesis is controlled by an interplay of transcription factors, including members of the CCAAT/enhancer binding protein family and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor γ. In addition to providing a new understanding of this aspect of the energy balance systems, these factors provide potential new targets for therapeutic intervention in metabolic diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
