Özet

Objective: Obesity is a public health problem, but the struggle against obesity continues to increase every day. Lipin-1 is an adipokine that modulates lipid metabolism and glucose homeostasis. The aims of the current study were to compare the levels of lipin-1 in serum and tissues (liver, lung, heart, pancreas and kidney) in rat fed with low fat diet (LFD), high fat diet (HFD) and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) supplemented HFD, and to determine the relationships of the lipin-1 levels in serum and tissues with the levels of serum glucose and lipid parameters.
