Title : Gut microbiota: a factor in energy regulation - Wolf_2006_Nutr.Rev_64_47

Abstract : Studies of germ-free and conventional mice revealed that the intestinal bacterial population of the latter contributed to the provision of calories to the host by hydrolysis of indigestible plant polysaccharides to absorbable monosaccharides. The gut microbiota at the same time caused the suppression of a circulating inhibitor of lipoprotein lipase, resulting in increased lipoprotein lipase activity and thus fat deposition. Both of these effects bring about a significantly increased body fat deposition in conventional mice compared with germ-free mice. Therefore, the intestinal microbiota, living in mutual beneficial symbiosis with the host organism, is an important regulator of energy uptake and storage.

Title : The mechanism and regulation of fat mobilization from adipose tissue: desnutrin, a newly discovered lipolytic enzyme - Wolf_2005_Nutr.Rev_63_166
Author(s) : Wolf G
Ref : Nutr Rev , 63 :166 , 2005
Abstract : A new member of a family of proteins functioning in the regulation of lipolysis in adipose tissue has been discovered and named "desnutrin." Desnutrin is transiently induced by fasting and decreased by re-feeding. A close homolog, termed adiponutrin, has the opposite expression pattern, being induced by feeding and disappearing upon fasting. Desnutrin functions by acting as the first enzyme in lipolysis, hydrolyzing triglycerides to diglycerides, whereas the well-known hormone-sensitive lipase takes the diglycerides to monoglycerides and on to free fatty acids.
