Our newest paper on the LncRNA HOTAIR and adipogenesis is out!

The lncRNA HOTAIR is the most differentially expressed gene between upper- and lower-body adipose tissue, but its significance in adipogenesis is unclear. We report that HOTAIR expression is transiently induced during early adipogenic differentiation of gluteofemoral adipose progenitors and is repressed in mature adipocytes. Upon adipogenic commitment, HOTAIR regulates protein synthesis pathways and cytoskeleton remodeling…
