Preadipocytes are multipotent adipogenic precursor cells that can be isolated from mature adipose tissue. They have been receiving increasing attention in the context of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other nutrition-associated diseases. Understanding the physiological and pathophysiological processes in fat neo-formation, energy homeostasis, and adipose(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Obesity is correlated with chronic low-grade inflammation. Thus the induction of inflammation could be used to stimulate adipose tissue formation in tissue-engineering approaches. As nitric oxide (NO) is a key regulator of inflammation, we investigated the effect of NO and its downstream signaling molecule guanosine 3',5'-cyclic(More)
