NADPH oxidase 4 (NOX4) is a reactive oxygen species (ROS) producing NADPH oxidase that regulates redox homeostasis in diverse insulin-sensitive cell types. In particular, NOX4-derived ROS is a key modulator of adipocyte differentiation and mediates insulin receptor signaling in mature adipocytes in vitro. Our study was aimed at investigating the role of NOX4 in adipose tissue differentiation, whole body metabolic homeostasis and insulin sensitivity in vivo.
