This book presents a comprehensive account of our current understanding of the mechanisms of obesity by analyzing obesity genotypes and phenotypes, genes and gene mutations, and current results from animal model research and genetic studies in different human types and populations. By helping readers understand the impact of genetic factors in the development of obesity and key molecules related to the pathophysiology of the disease, this source hopes to pinpoint new pathways for the prevention and management of obesity in various populations.
