Submitter Supplied Information

The white adipose tissue (WAT) rapidly loses mass when mice are fed a diet containing trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (t10c12 CLA). A microarray analysis of WAT due to CLA feeding was performed to better define the processes and genes involved. WAT weight decreased by ca. 80% over 17 days of feeding a 0.5% t10c12 CLA diet. The lipid volume decreased by 90% and the number of adipocytes and total cells were reduced by15% and 47%, respectively. Microarray profiling of replicated pools of control and treated mice (n=140) at seven time points over the 17day feeding indicated between 2798 to 4318 genes showed mRNA changes of 2-fold or more. Transcript levels for genes of glucose and fatty acid import or biosynthesis were significantly reduced. A prolific inflammation response was indicated by the 2 to100-fold induction of many cytokine transcripts, including those for IL-6, IL1?, TNF ligands, and CXC family members
