The impact of adipocytes and adipose tissue on systemic metabolism

Scherer Philipp E

A number of different cell types contribute to the cellular architecture of fat tissue. While the fat cell is making important functional contributions to the systemic metabolic well-being, several additional cell types contribute a supportive role to bestow maximal flexibility on the tissue with respect to many biosynthetic and catabolic processes. The adipocyte has morphed into a cell type whose complexity we only start to appreciate. We now understand that: 1) the contribut...
