Nature-Publikation from PZB-Speaker Prof. Dr. A. Pfeifer

5th July 2022: Apoptotic brown adipocytes enhance energy expenditure via extracellular inosine

Brown adipose tissue (BAT) dissipates energy and promotes cardio-metabolic health. In this publication, Nieman et al. identifiy inosine as novel tissue-messenger in brown fat (BAT). They show that treatment of mice with inosine increased BAT-dependent energy expenditure and induced “browning” of white adipose tissue. This work is funded by the DFG.
