Human adipose CIDEA mRNA levels in relation to features of the metabolic syndrome. A total of 186 obese and nonobese men and women were divided into low (▪), intermediate (▒), and high (□) tertiles based on ratios of CIDEA to β-2 microglobulin (β2-MG) mRNA expression in adipose tissue. Waist circumference (A), fat cell volume (B), insulin resistance (C) (HOMA index), and adipose tissue glycerol release (D) were compared between the tertiles. P ≤ 0.005 for all four parameters, Kruskal-Wallis.
