mRNA expression levels (arbitrary units) of fatty acid translocase (CD36), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR[gamma]), adipocyte protein 2 (aP2), and fatty acid synthase (FAS) of WT and [ACE2.sup.-/y] mice at the age of 6 months.
In addition, PPAR[gamma] regulates genes involved in fatty acid transport, release, and storage by increasing expression of genes involved in fatty acid import such as cluster of differentiation 36 (CD36) and adipocyte protein 2 (aP2) [21, 26]; therefore, PPAR[gamma] has a major role in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.
We further tested genes that are highly transcribed in adipocytes such as liver X receptor a (LXR-[alpha]), lipoprotein lipase (LPL), adipocyte protein 2 (ap2).
The expression of adipocyte protein 2 (aP2) was similar in all experimental steers.
We further tested genes that are highly transcribed in adipocytes such as liver X receptor [alpha] (LXR[alpha]), lipoprotein lipase (LPL), adipocyte protein 2 (ap2), adiponectin and glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4) (Fig.
