Abstract: Diet-induced obesity predisposes individuals to insulin resistance, and adipose tissue has a major role in the disease. Insulin resistance can be induced in cultured adipocytes by a variety of treatments, but it is unknown what aspects of the in vivo responses are captured by these models. We use global RNA-sequencing (RNA-Seq) to investigate changes induced by TNFα, hypoxia, dexamethasone, high insulin, and a combination of TNFα and hypoxia, comparing the results to the changes in white adipose tissue from d…
