1 We observed that certain cytokine and growth factors [such as TNF alpha, basic fibroblast growth factor, transforming growth factor beta, and protein kinase C-activating agents plus calcium ionophore], when added to differentiated adipocytes, cause rapid down-regulation of PPARgamma mRNA expression with concomitant decrease in adipocyte-specific gene expression but fail to increase Pref-1 mRNA expression.
