Its expression is increased by fasting and glucocorticoids and reduced by refeeding (105). ATGL expression increases during the differentiation of human preadipocytes in adipocytes, simultaneously with HSL expression, and the expression of these two lipases appears coregulated in human adipose tissue (107). Its expression is also reduced in the adipose tissue of ob/ob and db/db mice (105). To our knowledge, no data on ATGL expression in human obesity are available. ATGL contains in its N-terminal part a patatin domain and belongs thus to a large family of proteins with patatin domains that have acylhydrolase activity (see ref.
