The recent technological innovations in the area of functional genomics, gene expression/transcriptomic profiling can provide new insights to understand the molecular basis of adipogenesis. The focus of this review is to highlight the recent advances in our understanding of the complex interplay...
Characterization of microRNA expression in bovine adipose tissues: A potential regulatory mechanism of subcutaneous adipose tissue developmentDownload
Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a family of small non-coding RNA molecules, appear to regulate animal lipid metabolism and preadipocyte conversion to form lipid-assimilating adipocytes (i.e. adipogenesis). However, no miRNA to date has been reported to modulate adipogenesis and lipid deposition...
Lipid metabolism, adipocyte depot physiology and utilization of meat animals as experimental models for metabolic researchDownload

Meat animals are unique as experimental models for both lipid metabolism and adipocyte studies because of their direct economic value for animal production. This paper discusses the principles that regulate adipogenesis in major meat animals (beef cattle, dairy cattle, and pigs), the definition...
Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs found to regulate several biological processes including adipogenesis. Understanding adipose tissue regulation is critical for beef cattle as fat is an important determinant of beef quality and nutrient value. This study analyzed the...
Background The fat components of red meat products have been of interest to researchers due to the health aspects of excess fat consumption by humans. We hypothesized that differences in protein expression have an impact on adipose tissue formation during beef cattle development and growth....
