Description
It has been found that fat oxidation is reduced in the skeletal muscle of obese humans. This study aims to identify the mRNA of proteins involved in fat oxidation that may be reduced in obese and morbidly obese individuals. Information gathered will help in understanding how obesity contributes to cardiovascular disease via insulin resistance. Samples were obtained from patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery.
