Obesity is a global epidemic and an increasing concern for health and wellbeing worldwide. It predisposes individuals to numerous medical comorbidities such as Type2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. New research is uncovering the role of epigenetics in obesity . One of the potential epigenetic factors, which appear to play a regulatory role in many biological processes associated with obesity, including adipocyte differentiation and lipid metabolism, are MicroRNAs (miRNAs) . Several miRNA molecules have already been implicated in obesity and Diabetes. Our aim was to study the dysregulated expression of miR-143 and miR-181d in blood circulation and adipose tissue in a cohort of 144 obese and non obese people and assess their possible role in obesity.
