ChREBP is a key lipogenic transcription factors responsible for the induction of gene encoding enzymes involved in fatty acid and triacylglyceride synthesis in the liver (Filhoulaud et al., 2013).
Most of the studies have focused on isolipidic diets evaluation, testing different degrees of soybean oil substitution, nevertheless, those studies do not consider the effects between lipid levels and source type on parameters such as growth, survival, activity of digestive enzymes and expression of lipogenic genes, particularly during larval stages.

Literature review shows that both undifferentiated adipose tissue stem cells and bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells have osteogenic, chondrogenic and lipogenic differentiation potential which can help in defect repair in reconstructive surgeries.
Stearoyl-coA desaturase 1 gene expression is necessary for fructose-mediated induction of lipogenic gene expression by sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1c-dependent and -independent mechanisms.
Upstream regulators of de novo lipogenesis (i.e., carbohydrate response element-binding protein [ChREBP] and sterol regulatory element-binding protein 1c [SREBP-1c]) were measured by polymerase chain reaction and key lipogenic enzymes (acetyl-CoA carboxylase [ACC], fatty acid synthase [FAS], and stearoyl-CoA desaturase-1 [SCD-1]) by Western blotting.
Accordingly, there is increasing evidence that RT stimulates lipid oxidation in the liver due to the activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) (6, 35, 38) and down regulation of lipogenic gene expression by liver enzymes (39).
In this sense, there is evidence that RT stimulates lipid oxidation, due to the activation of protein kinase (AMP) and the negative regulation of the pathway of lipogenic enzymes by expression of the hepatic gene (9,18).

The triglyceride lowering effect could explain at least in part the inhibition of de novo fatty acid synthesis and downregulation of lipogenic enzymes as has been suggested for oligofructose [59].
