WAT has high expression of 4E-BP1, a protein important for the posttranscriptional regulation of protein synthesis. Mice lacking 4E-BP1show a reduction of the total fat mass and a brown phenotype of their adipose organ, suggesting that a posttranscriptionally regulated protein can be responsible for the white phenotype. The author suggests that PGC1 (a cofactor of PPARL) is the protein whose posttranscriptional synthesis is blocked by 4E-BP1 (55). We recently reported a completely new example of adipose organ plasticity, with reversible transdifferentiation of adipocytes into epithelial cells.

This action involves probably both SREBP-1c (39) and LXRF, although the actual role of SREBP-1c has been questioned (40). Glucose also stimulates lipogenesis in adipocytes (41) and, as in liver, a full stimulation requires the simultaneous presence of insulin and glucose. The action of glucose could be transmitted by ChREBP, as this transcription factor is expressed in adipocytes (24,35,42,43); however, a stimulatory effect of glucose on ChREBP translocation to nucleus and DNA binding activity in adipocytes has not yet been demonstrated.
