Abstract
Prevalence of obesity and obesity-associated type 2 diabetes has become a major economic and medical burden worldwide. While white adipose tissues (WATs) function as a storage depot of lipids, brown adipose tissues (BATs) dissipate energy as heat by thermogenesis. Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling pathway has been reported to play a key role in adipogenesis and osteogenesis. BMP-4, BMP-7, and BMP-8b have been reported to modulate brown adipogenic gene expression and suppress obesity. We observed that BMP-9 enhanced brown adipogenesis of human adipose tissue derived stem cells. With our observation of cell culture system, we hypothesized that BMP-9 may be able to improve glucose metabolism by regulating expression of brown adipogenic genes. We reported that intraperitoneal injection of BMP-9 suppressed weight gaining in high fat diet-induced obese mouse model and decreased 16 h fasting blood glucose levels. Systemic injection of BMP-9 enhanced brown adipogenic gene expression in the subcutaneous WAT but not in the visceral WAT. However, BMP-2 rather increased fat mass and insulin resistance. In addition to BMP ligands, we also analyzed effects of activin, a TGF-β family ligand along with BMP, on high fat diet-induced obesity.
