Background and Aim: To investigate the association of adipose tissue transcript levels of IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-α, and MCP-1 with various adiposity indices in obese women.
Methods: Real-time PCR was carry out to investigate the mRNA expression level of the mentioned genes in VAT and SAT from all participants.
Results: The results presented higher mRNA levels of IL-6 and MCP-1 in SAT and VAT of obese women, compared to normal-weight women. As well, results showed a positive correlation of IL-6 and MCP-1 with HOMA-IR. Obesity indices including BMI, hip, and WHtR were considerably higher in the obese group in comparison with the control group. More importantly, we observed a positive correlation of mRNA expression of these pro-inflammatory factors in adipose tissues with some obesity indices.
Conclusion: We have shown here that adipose tissue transcript levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines were significantly higher in obese participate than non-obese participants. In obese individuals, this proinflammatory molecules was significantly correlated with various obesity indices. These results suggest that targeting obesity and adipose tissue could prevent the high expression of cytokine.
