High fat diet and fgf21 cooperatively promote thermogensis

Bhattacharya A. Ruth M. Despite cold-induced FGF21 expression and increased circulating levels in some studies, which co-occur with brown fat thermogenesis, recent studies in cold-acclimated mice demonstrate the dispensability of FGF21 for maintenance of body temperature, thereby questioning FGF21’s role for thermogenesis. Raised FGF and triglycerides accompany increased energy intake driven by protein leverage in… Read More »
