Targeted control of adipocyte differentiation by specific peptide-mediated internalization of modulators (Prof. Dr. Annette G. Beck-Sickinger, completed)

This study examines the proliferation of fat cells (adipocytes) and their enlargement by fatty deposits as well as the influence of genetic factors on these processes. Enlarged adipocytes are associated with a higher risk for a decreased insulin sensitivity and for type 2 diabetes.
