, making chromatin ‘accessible’ or ‘inaccessible’ for transcription factor binding and therefore influencing gene expression (e.g. P66 , MMP-9 , IL-6 , Rac1 ). This series of events leads to ‘metabolic memory’, oxidative stress, inflammation

Introduction Inflammation in adipose tissue is intimately linked with the onset and progression of insulin resistance. The link between insulin resistance and obesity is not completely understood. Recent studies suggest that insulin sensitivity is

CRH ( Esposito et al. 2002 ). Such findings have implicated stress and mast cells in brain inflammation, including multiple sclerosis ( Goodin et al. 1999 , Mei-Tal et al. 1970 , Theoharides & Cochrane 2004 ), but did not prove that CRH had a
