This article, now donated to Citizendium, is modified from one I placed on the Diabesity website [1]. I am a member of the Diabesity consortium and the article was originally written by a student, under my supervision, with the intent that it should be freely available to the public.Gareth Leng 09:24, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

Toward Approval

I see that Gareth, a health science editor has nominated this article, but is the sole author of the page (though it wasn't originally written by him). Unless I'm missing something, we'll need two more editors to come on board for this to be locked. D. Matt Innis 17:24, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

I see that Anthony has signed on. Don't we have one more Biology or Health Sciences editor that can sign on here? Surely there is one somewhere that will come take a look! :) D. Matt Innis 00:42, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
I've removed the template, but will leave the version number and editor endorsements here in case another editor stumbles upon this. D. Matt Innis 02:39, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

The above link to the Diabesity website does not work

The above link to the Diabesity site does not work. That same link to the Diabesity site is also on the image file at Image:Adipocyte.png and also does not work.

The image file summary also needs to have the country of first publication filled in (if known). If not known, just enter "Unknown". It also needs the credit line to be created.

These two items are rather trivial but it would only take a few minutes for Gareth or Anthony to fix. Milton Beychok 00:07, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Adiponutrin needed before approval

A section covering adiponutrin (I do not mean adiponectin) and its link with steatosis should be added to this before approval. The I148M variant apparently correlates well with non-alcoholic fatty acid liver (NAFL). The variant is higher in hispanics > europeans > african americans, which is also the order of NAFL incidence in the general population. I am in no way an expert in this area, and so leave it to others to write this section. It is a transmembrane protein from a gene that is controlled by insulin. David E.

Will you do it, David? Anthony.Sebastian 00:45, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks David - done it - and also taken the opportunity to update in press details and add PMID refsGareth Leng 10:14, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
