  1. aThe lists of differentially-expressed genes in porcine perirenal (PRAT) or subcutaneous (SCAT) adipose tissues in response to diet were automatically confronted to the academic information on regulations and reactions in mammalian cell signaling. Genes that were able to regulate a significant number of the differentially-expressed genes were proposed as upstream regulatory candidates. The biological processes in which these genes could be involved were indicated as referenced in the gene ontology (GO) Entrez database. The complete lists of candidates are given in Additional file 5: Table S5 for PRAT and Additional file 6: Table S6 for SCAT
