25210844 It is insinuated that VAT is associated with late phase obesity CIDEC decrease and insulin resistance, while pioglitazone enhances CIDEC through activation of PPAR-gamma, increases its expression, and decreases lipolysis.
24742676 Data indicate that fat-specific protein 27 (FSP27) increases the inhibitory effect of transcription factor Egr1 on the adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) promoter.

23233732 The results suggest that FSP27 not only modulates LD homeostasis but also modulates the response to osmotic stress via a physical interaction with NFAT5 at the LD surface.
23220584 Fsp27/CIDEC is a CREB target gene induced during early fasting in liver and regulated by FA oxidation rate.
21865223 Results demonstrated that CIDEC-induced apoptosis was independent of FADD, suggesting that CIDEC-induced apoptosis might be in a death-receptor-independent, caspase-8-dependent manner.
21636835 Insulin regulates CIDEA and CIDEC expression via PI3K, and it regulates expression of each protein via Akt1/2-and JNK2-dependent pathways, respectively, in human adipocytes.
20957525 The expression of CIDE-3 was decreased in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissue, compared to adjacent normal tissues, and CIDE-3 expression and HCC differentiation were positively correlated.
20154362 These results suggest that CIDEA and CIDEC are novel genes regulated by insulin in human adipocytes and may play key roles in the effects of insulin, such as anti-apoptosis and lipid droplet formation.
20089860 Fat-specific protein 27 undergoes ubiquitin-dependent degradation regulated by triacylglycerol synthesis and lipid droplet formation
20049731 CIDEC is required for unilocular lipid droplet formation and optimal energy storage in human.
