Development and use of a DNA microarray to follow up the gene expression in adipose tissue in murine models of atherosclerosis

Project: Research

Description

Development of a DNA microarray to follow up the gene expression in adipose tissue in murine models of atherosclerosis. The investigated genes (82) encoded proteins involved in adiposyte differentiation and metabolism as well as in the pro-inflammatory response.
