Cowan and colleagues have demonstrated the expression of mitoregulin (MTLN) in murine adipose tissue as well as human stem cell-derived adipocytes. MTLN affects triglyceride accumulation and lipolysis in adipocytes. It does so through mitochondrial localization and interaction with complexes involved in fatty acid oxidation.
