. Epididymal WAT (eWAT) is located in the lower abdomen, connected to the epididymis, and suitable for evaluating cytokines and proinflammatory markers ( Mandarim-de-Lacerda et al. 2021 ). Therefore, eWAT is male mice’s most commonly studied visceral fat

autotaxin mRNA levels were increased by about four-fold in db/db mice when compared to lean littermates ( Boucher et al. 2005 ). In contrast, depletion of autotaxin could protect against high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity, insulin resistance and glucose

Introduction Thyroid hormone is essential for normal skeletal development and the maintenance of adult bone mass. Recent studies of T 3 receptor (TR) mutant mice have advanced our understanding and demonstrated the relevance of this field to

FGF21 on body growth is evident in transgenic mice overexpressing this factor, which exhibit reduced growth, whereas targeted-disruption of FGF21 blunts food-restriction impairment of growth ( Inagaki et al . 2008 , Kubicky et al . 2012 ). Another

fa/fa rats lacking functional leptin receptor signaling, negligible PrRP mRNA expression was detected ( Ellacott et al . 2002 ). Leptin deficiency in ob/ob mice causes obesity based on hyperphagia and decreased energy expenditure; in addition

, we found that serum GP73 levels were significantly elevated in diabetic mice and humans and that blocking GP73 with a monoclonal antibody (mAb), siRNA knockdown, or genetic deficiency improved glucose homeostasis in streptozotocin (STZ)- and high
