[Fetal and neo-natal development of brown adipose tissue in guinea pigs and rats. Feto-maternal or milk transfer of essential fatty acids : lipogenesis and morphology (author's transl)].


Brown adipose tissue (BAT) lipogenesis (fatty acid, glycerol and CO2 synthesis) and its morphology determined by optical microscopy, were studied in guinea pigs and rats during intra-uterine life and during the suckling period. Following the receptor induction and after the commencement of the hormone sensitive adenylate-cyclase/lipase system (i.e. on the… (More)
