Gene pathway development in human epicardial adipose tissue during early life (2016)
Journal Article
Ojha, S., Fainberg, H. P., Wilson, V., Pelella, G., Castellanos, M., May, S., …Budge, H. (in press). Gene pathway development in human epicardial adipose tissue during early life. JCI insight, 1(13), doi:10.1172/jci.insight.87460. ISSN 2379-3708

Studies in rodents and newborn humans demonstrate the influence of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in temperature control and energy balance and a critical role in the regulation of body weight. Here, we obtained samples of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT)... Read More

Molecular characterization of adipose tissue in the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) (2014)
Journal Article
Nilsson, E. M., Fainberg, H. P., Choong, S. S., Giles, T. C., Sells, J., May, S., …Yon, L. (2014). Molecular characterization of adipose tissue in the African elephant (Loxodonta africana). PLoS ONE, 9(3), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0091717. ISSN 1932-6203

Adipose tissue (AT) is a dynamic and flexible organ with regulatory roles in physiological functions including metabolism, reproduction and inflammation; secreted adipokines, including leptin, and fatty acids facilitate many of these roles. The Afric... Read More
