Biological aging alters the metabolism and volume of adipose tissue depots. Recent evidence suggests that circadian mechanisms play a role in promoting adipogenesis, obesity, and lipodystrophy. The current study compared cohorts of younger (5-9 months) and older (24-28 months) C57BL/6 mice as a function of biological age and circadian time. Advanced age significantly reduced the weight of the brown, epididymal, inguinal, and retroperitoneal adipose depots but not total body weight. The older mic ...[more]

Project description:In order to select mRNA transcripts strongly enriched in murine white adipocytes versus brown adipocytes or stromal-vascular fraction, gene expression data of the adipocyte and stromal-vascular fractions of the interscapular brown, inguinal subcutaneous as well as visceral epididymal adipose tissue depots of young adult male C57BL/6 mice housed at constant 23°C ambient temperature were obtained. 18 samples: 3 different adipose tissues separated into stromal-vascular fraction and adipocytes, analyzed in biological triplicates.
Project description:Gene expression profiling of supraclavicular brown, interscapular brown, inguinal white, and epididymal white adipose tissues from C57BL/6 male mice was performed by RNA-sequencing. Overall design: Total of 12 RNA samples (3 RNA samples from each adipose tissue type) from adipose tissues were used for RNA-sequencing analysis.
Project description:We applied a deep-sequencing based method – digital gene expression profiling (DGEP), to investigate gene expression in interscapular brown adipose tissue (iBAT), inguinal white adipose tissue (iWAT) and epididymal white adipose tissue (eWAT) in acute cold exposure Examination of gene expression level in 3 different adipose tissues in 3 time points, day0, day2 and day4 in cold exposure.
Project description:Based upon integrated analysis of transcriptomes and cistromes in Rev-erb alpha knock-out mice, we found that beta-Klotho (KLB) mRNA and protein are markedly induced in white adipose tissue but not in brown adipose tissue or liver of mice lacking Rev-erb alpha. In order to address the mechanism of the tissue-specific regulation of Klb transcription by Rev-erb apha, we performed global run-on followed by high-throughput sequencing (GRO-seq) to measure nascent transcription in different tissues in wildtype mice and Rev-erb alpha knock-out mice. Overall design: Nascent RNA transcripts in mouse adipose tissue depots (brown adipose tissue, epididymal white adipose tissue, and inguinal white adipose tissue) were profiled in wildtype mice and Rev-erb alpha knockout mice.
Project description:Mice were kept at RT, thermoneutrality (humanized condition) and thermoneutrality plus high fat diet. Inter scapular brown adipose tissue and inguinal white adipose tissue were used for RNA seq. Illumina Truseq ribosomal RNA depletion protocol was used.
Project description:Examination of PPARg occupancy (GSE41481) and DNA hypersensitive sites (GSE122453) in in vitro differentiatied adipocytes isolated from epididymal and inguinal white adipose tissues, as well as brown adipose tissue. Overall design: Refer to individual Series
