Interaction Information:

Comment MCP-1 and IL-6 are adipokines believed to initiate macrophage infiltration in the WAT and involved in systemic insulin resistance. Indeed, a significant increase in MCP-1 mRNA levels was seen in wild-type mice on HFD compared with ND (fourfold). MCP-1 expression in C3aR-/- mice on HFD was 1.7-fold lower than wild-type controls. A definitive trend toward decreased IL-6 expression was seen in both the C3aR-/- and C3aR-/- mice on HFD compared with wild type.
