The expression and activity of these transcription factors play an important role in modulating a variety of target genes that are important in conferring lipid accumulation, insulin sensitivity, and endocrine properties in mature adipocytes. Though poorly understood, novel transcriptional regulators and factors that modulate WAT preadipocyte commitment are being identified. Studies by the Spiegelman laboratory have identified two transcription factors, PPARγ and zinc-finger protein 423 (Zfp423), that are expressed in adipogenic fibroblast cells, as opposed to nonadipogenic cells [83].
