Abstract Chronic inflammation is closely associated with metabolic disorders such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, however, the underlying mechanism is unclear. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a key role in innate immune response as well as inflammatory signals. Here, we observed that mRNA level of TLR4 was induced during adipocyte differentiation and remarkably enhanced in fat tissues of obese db/db mice. In addition, activation of TLR4 with either LPS or free fatty acids stimulated NFkappaB signaling and expression of inflammatory cytokine genes, such as TNFalpha and IL-6 in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Furthermore, we discovered that TLR4 activation in 3T3-L1 adipocytes provoked insulin resistance. Taken together, these results suggest that activation of TLR4 in adipocyte might be implicated in the onset of insulin resistance in obesity and type 2 diabetes.
