... MOTS-c also increases insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle from aged, and high-fat fed, mice [1]. Furthermore, MOTS-c dramatically decreases weight gain during high-fat-diet-induced obesity in mice, and prevents fat accumulation in liver, making it a potential target in NASH (Fig. 1) [1,19]. The paper by Lu and colleagues suggests that brown adipose tissue (BAT) may also be a direct target of MOTS-c, affecting mitochondrial number and function in this tissue [3]. ...
