Interaction Information:

Comment Although CD14 and TNF-alpha were expressed at equal levels in resident and recruited adipose tissue macrophage (ATM) pools, IL-6, iNOS, and CCR2 were expressed at higher levels in the recruited ATMs. Expression of these inflammatory genes in both recruited and resident high-fat diet ATM populations were higher than ATMs from normal diet mice. This suggests that ATMs newly recruited to adipose tissue have an increased inflammatory capacity compared with resident ATMs.
