Innervation of white and brown adipose tissue: dual viral transneuronal tracing study

Dénes Ádám , Darida Miklós , Boldogkoi Zsolt , Kovacs Krisztina

Central control of body weight involves coordinated regulation of food intake and energy metabolism. White (WAT) and brown (BAT) adipose tissue represent functionally distinct compartments of lipid storage and fuel consumption, respectively. Both adipose tissues are innervated by the sympathetic nervous system. Tyrosine hydroxylase positive fibers were found in between fat cells. To determine the extent to which the control of different fat compartments is provided by the same...

Laterality in the supraspinal innervation of the adrenal gland: a dual-virus tracer study

Tóth Ida , Wiesel Ory , Tóth Dorina , Boldogkoi Zsolt , Bálint Kamill , Gerendai Ida

Recent studies using the viral transneuronal tracing technique allowed to reveal brain neurons synaptically connected with the adrenal gland, via specific infections within functionally related chains of neurons. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether cerebral neurons involved in the innervation of the adrenal gland exhibit asymmetry or not. In order to label simultaneously the supraspinal neurons connected with the right- and left-sided adrenal glands, dual-v...
