Interaction Information:

Comment Incubation with Ang II or AGT resulted in a dose-dependent inhibition of adipogenic differentiation, despite concomitant stimulation with the differentiation cocktail (insulin plus hydrocortisone plus T3).
Formal Description
Interaction-ID: 15597

Angiotensin II

in adipose tissue
Comment In contrast to stimulation with Ang II, AT1 receptor blockade with irbesartan increased lipid accumulation. Increased lipid accumulation was attributable to both an increased number of differentiated cells and an increase in intracytoplasmic lipid accumulation.

Comment Inhibition of adipogenic differentiation by Ang II and stimulation by AT1 receptor blockade with irbesartan was also accompanied by a respective decrease or increase in expression of the adipogenic marker genes PPAR-gamma and FAS.
