    Neurosecretory protein GL stimulates food intake, de novo lipogenesis, and onset of obesity

    Eiko Iwakoshi-Ukena et al.
    Neurosecretory protein GL, a previously unknown mammalian neuropeptide, is a novel hypothalamic factor which regulates feeding behavior and peripheral lipogenesis in animals.

    Long non-coding RNAs in regulation of adipogenesis and adipose tissue function

    Tiziana Squillaro et al.
    An update on the role of lncRNAs in adipogenesis and adipose tissue function, aimed at promoting the identification of new drug targets for obesity and metabolic diseases.

    ATF4 licenses C/EBPβ activity in human mesenchymal stem cells primed for adipogenesis

    Daniel M Cohen et al.
    The transcription factor C/EBPβ binds to different DNA sequences depending on whether it binds to ATF4, which enables C/EBPβ to conduct diverse transcriptional programs during adipocyte differentiation by exploiting an expanded motif repertoire.

    Targeting senescent cells enhances adipogenesis and metabolic function in old age

    Ming Xu et al.
    Senescent cells contribute to age-related fat dysfunction and can directly impair healthy fat progenitor function, in part, via the secretion of activin A.

    Identification of the transcription factor ZEB1 as a central component of the adipogenic gene regulatory network

    Carine Gubelmann et al.
    A large-scale transcription factor screen reveals over twenty novel adipogenic regulators: most notably ZEB1, which exerts essential transcriptional control of fat cell differentiation.

    Dual functions of TAF7L in adipocyte differentiation

    Haiying Zhou et al.
    A combination of cellular, biochemical, genetic and genomic techniques have revealed a new molecular player in the production of fat cells in mice, which could improve our understanding of obesity.

    Dynamic control of adipose tissue development and adult tissue homeostasis by platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha

    Sunhye Shin et al.
    Combined fate mapping and genetic deletion studies reveal that PDGFRα+ cells and PDGFRα gene itself are required for adipose tissue development but not for adult tissue homeostasis.

    Identification of functionally distinct fibro-inflammatory and adipogenic stromal subpopulations in visceral adipose tissue of adult mice

    Chelsea Hepler et al.
    Fibro-inflammatory progenitors represent a subpopulation of perivascular cells in visceral adipose tissues of mice that promote inflammation and fibrosis.

    Hedgehog signaling via Gli2 prevents obesity induced by high-fat diet in adult mice

    Yu Shi, Fanxin Long
    Targeted activation of Hedgehog signalling via Gli2 facilitated the reduction of high-fat-diet-induced obesity and improvement of whole-body glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in adult mice.

    H3K4 mono- and di-methyltransferase MLL4 is required for enhancer activation during cell differentiation

    Ji-Eun Lee et al.
    MLL4 (KMT2D) is a major mammalian H3K4 mono- and di-methyltransferase that is essential for enhancer activation, cell-type-specific gene expression, and cell differentiation.
