Therefore, we reviewed the recent literature regarding the mechanisms linking the development of PCOS and obesity in adolescent girls. We found that excess abdominal adipose tissue (AT) initiates metabolic and endocrine aberrations...

In adipose tissue, lipoprotein lipase (LPL), in the presence of insulin, is expressed via a glucocorticoid receptor, increasing transcription and stabilizing the enzyme. This process is efficiently inhibited by GH via...
