OBJECTIVE Brite adipocytes are inducible energy-dissipating cells expressing UCP1 which appear within white adipose tissue of healthy adult individuals. Recruitment of these cells represents a potential strategy to fight obesity and associated diseases. METHODS/RESULTS Using human Multipotent Adipose-Derived Stem cells, able to convert into brite(More)
It is well established now that adult humans possess active brown adipose tissue (BAT) which represents a potential pharmacological target to combat obesity and associated diseases. Moreover thermogenic brown-like adipocytes ("brite adipocytes") appear also in mouse white adipose tissue (WAT) upon β3-adrenergic stimulation. We had previously shown that(More)
