Recent discoveries of essential lipolytic enzymes and characterization of numerous regulatory proteins and mechanisms have fundamentally changed our perception of lipolysis and its impact on cellular metabolism. New findings that lipolytic products and(More)

They are neurally determined in the process of neurulation but finally decide to follow the pigment cell lineage, whereas the adjacent tissue develops into the neuroretina and the optic stalk.
