Hypoxia modulates the production of proteins involved in e.g. inflammation, angiogenesis and glucose utilization and hypoxia may therefore be an important factor underlying adipose tissue dysfunction in obesity. Resveratrol (RSV) is a natural polyphenolic compound and has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects and beneficial effects on several obesity-related complications. Thus, in the present study we investigated whether RSV has effects on hypoxic markers (GLUT-1, VEGF), hypoxia-induced key markers of inflammation (IL8, IL6), and leptin in human adipose tissue in vitro. Hypoxia was induced by incubating human adipose tissue fragments with 1% O2 for 24h as compared to 21% O2 The gene expressions were investigated by RT-PCR and protein release by Elisa. Hypoxia increases the expression of glucose transporter-1 (GLUT-1) (19-fold, p
