The expansion of adipose tissue is regulated by insulin and leptin through sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1c (SREBP-1c), up-regulating lipogenesis in tissues by Stearoylcoenzyme A desaturase 1 (SCD1) enzyme, while adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) enzyme is key in lipolysis. The research objective was to evaluate the expression of Sterol Regulatory Element Binding Transcription Factor 1 (SREBF1), SCD1, Patatin Like Phospholipase Domain Containing 2 (PNPLA2), and leptin (LEP) genes in hepatic-adipose …
