Brown/Beige Fat Activation after Skeletal Muscle Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury

SUMMARY Objective. Skeletal muscle Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury (IRI) is a commonly seen orthopedic injury. However, the role of The Brown/Beige Adipose Tissue (BAT) in muscle regeneration after IRI remains unknown. In this study, we assessed the role of BAT in muscle regeneration using UCP-1 reporter and Knockout (KO) mice. We hypothesize that UCP-1 expression increases in … Continued
