Introduction: Widespread changes occur in gene expression in obesity, contributing to metabolic and inflammatory abnormalities. Epigenetic mechanisms play a role in obesity by altering gene expression patterns, and connecting environmental factors to genetic alterations. Histone acetylation is a crucial epigenetic modification that impacts chromatin structure and regulates gene expression. Adipogenesis has been associated with gene-specific increases in histon...
