Cell size is, alongside sex and depot of origin, the key determining factor of adipocyte function. Ther e is large variation in this parameter between the di fferent compartments of this adipose organ, owing to differences in cell turn-over, mechanisms of adi pose tissue expansion and a plethora of other physiological causes. The current study aims to ass ess the differences in size and number between adipocytes from two of the most metabolically signi ficant body fat depots, the visceral… Expand
Female adipocyte androgen synthesis and the effects of insulin
TLDR
The results showed the potential for localised adipocyte androgen synthesis through the presence of the androgen precursor progesterone, as well as the steroid-converting enzyme 17α-hydroxylase, and the controlled secretion of androstenedione in vitro and that insulin treatment caused levels to increase. Expand
Enhanced Leptin Synthesis and Secretion In Vitro by Human Adipocytes from Type 2 Diabetic Donors Occurs only under Hyperinsulinaemic Conditions
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that both normal and supraphysiological insulin concentrations directly stimulate secretion of leptin by adipocytes from bothnormal and type 2 diabetic donors, but the effect is greatest for type 1 diabetic adipocytes following extended periods of supraphyiological insulin treatment.

A plea for interdisciplinarity : Cardiodiabetology-Arterial Hypertension Branch
the term "interdisciplinarity," which is relatively recent. However, we must remember that the concept of medicine in all that time was a mixture between philosophy, religion, astrology, etc.Expand

Regional differences in adipose tissue metabolism in obese men.
TLDR
In normal-weight to morbidly obese men, although adipocyte size and lipolysis tended to increase with higher waist circumference, no difference was observed between the omental and subcutaneous fat depot. Expand
Regional variation in adipose tissue metabolism of severely obese premenopausal women.
TLDR
In massively obese premenopausal women, omental and round ligament adipose tissues show distinct metabolic properties that may contribute to limit the impact of intraabdominal obesity. Expand
The Relationship of Omental and Subcutaneous Adipocyte Size to Metabolic Disease in Severe Obesity
TLDR
It is proposed that adipocyte size might be a key factor in the protection of metabolically healthy obese (MHO) individuals from the adverse effects of obesity, and possibly progression from hepatic steatosis to fibrosis. Expand
Adipocyte Turnover: Relevance to Human Adipose Tissue Morphology
TLDR
Adipose tissue morphology correlates with insulin measures and is linked to the total adipocyte number independently of sex and body fat level, whereas low generation rates of adipocytes associate with adipose tissue hypertrophy, whereas high generation rates associate with adipose hyperplasia. Expand
Metabolism of adipose tissue in intraabdominal depots of nonobese men and women.
TLDR
Two types of responses to catecholamine-stimulated lipolysis were observed: a similar response from mesenteric and omentalFat depots and from retroperitoneal and subcutaneous abdominal (nonportal) fat depots. Expand
Regional Differences in Adipose Tissue Metabolism in Women
TLDR
Compared with adipocytes from the omental fat compartment, subcutaneous adipocytes are larger, have higher LPL activity, and are more lipolytic on an absolute basis, which may reflect a higher fat storage capacity in this depot in women. Expand
In vitro lipid synthesis in human adipose tissue from three abdominal sites.
TLDR
Investigation of cellular mechanisms that might contribute to enlargement of intra-abdominal adipocytes, lipolysis, triacylglycerol (TG), and diacyl Glyceride (DG) synthesis from [14C]glucose was measured in abdominal subcutaneous, omental, and mesenteric adipose tissue from severely obese women and men.

Qualitative regional differences in adipose tissue growth and cellularity in male Wistar rats fed ad libitum.
TLDR
Major and unexpected regional differences in the modulation of adipose tissue growth within aging animals fed ad libitum are uncovered and suggest local, region-specific regulatory controls of this growth are suggested. Expand
Expression of TNF-α protein in omental and subcutaneous adipose tissue in obesity
TLDR
TNF-α protein expression was higher in omental than in subcutaneous adipose tissue and could play a key role in contributing to cardiovascular risk in central obesity subjects. Expand
Differential proteomics of omental and subcutaneous adipose tissue reflects their unalike biochemical and metabolic properties.
TLDR
Tissue-specific molecular differences in the protein makeup of the two analyzed fat depots mainly related to metabolic processes such as glucose and lipid metabolism, lipid transport, protein synthesis, protein folding, response to stress and inflammation suggest higher metabolic activity as well as increased cell stress in the omental compared to the subcutaneous fat.
