Adipose tissue microcirculation is unique within the vascular system because of a capacity for this tissue to grow throughout most of adult life. A review of the microcirculation of adipose tissue has included a historical review of the early studies, which served as a foundation for later investigations on this topic, including basic hemodynamic measurements in mammalian adipose tissue. The various methods for measuring blood flow in white and brown adipose tissue are discussed with respect to… Expand
Adipose tissue angiogenesis: impact on obesity and type-2 diabetes.
TLDR
A substantial amount of data points to a deficit in adipose tissue angiogenesis as a contributing factor to insulin resistance and metabolic disease in obesity, and emerging findings support the concept of the adipOSE tissue vasculature as a source of new targets for metabolic disease therapies. Expand
Adipose tissue angiogenesis.
A review of adipose tissue angiogenesis includes the morphological and cytochemical development of adipose tissue vasculature and the concept of primitive fat organs. Spatial and temporalExpand
Adipose Tissue Biology: An Update Review
TLDR
It is now clear that adipose tissue is a complex and highly active metabolic and endocrine organ that causes adiposes tissue dysfunction and results in obesity-related disorders. Expand
Update on adipose tissue blood flow regulation.
TLDR
The current state of knowledge on adipose tissue vascular bed behavior under physiological conditions and the various factors that contribute to its regulation as well as the possible participation of altered ATBF in the pathophysiology of metabolic syndrome are summarized. Expand
The development and endocrine functions of adipose tissue
TLDR
Evaluation of known adipokines suggests these factors secreted from adipose tissue play roles in several pathologies, and there is little doubt that there will be a greater appreciation for a tissue once thought to simply store excess energy. Expand
Differential Role of Adipose Tissues in Obesity and Related Metabolic and Vascular Complications
TLDR
In order to combat obesity and its related complications, as a complement to conventional treatments, a new insight is focusing on the role of the thermogenic function of brown and perivascular adipose tissues as a promising therapy in humans. Expand
The biology of white adipocyte proliferation
TLDR
Together, these multiple regulatory controls orchestrate overall and region‐specific adipose tissue cellularity responses associated with the development of hyperplastic obesity. Expand
Adipose tissue angiogenesis assay.
TLDR
A method to study angiogenesis from adipose tissue fragments obtained from mouse and human tissue is described and this assay can be used to define effects of diverse factors added in vitro, as well as the role of endogenously produced factors on angiogenic potential. Expand

TLDR
The result of the defense mechanism for adipose tissue, localized vasoconstriction, may help develop a more generalized pathologic response within the metabolic syndrome parameters, extending its effects to the whole body. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary studies suggest that the neovasculature originates by sprouting from larger, host‐derived blood vessels that run parallel to peripheral nerves and that endothelial progenitor cells play little, if any, role in this process. Expand

This hypothesis is discussed by examining the integral relationship between the cardiovascular system and adipocyte metabolism, hopefully providing new insight into control of the pathophysiological processes of an expanding adipose organ. Expand

TLDR
The arterio-venous difference technique allows easier quantification of substrate uptake and release, and allows the study of hydrophobic molecules (e.g. fatty acids, triacylglycerol), while the microdialysis technique does not allow theStudy of more than one depot, nor the local introduction of effectors of metabolism.

TLDR
The ultimate determinant of function in white adipose tissue is the maintenance of adequate perfusion and exchange processes in the microcirculatory bed. Expand
Adipose tissue blood flow and cellularity in the growing rabbit.
TLDR
The results indicate that changes in adipose tissue composition and cellularity, resulting from growth and from accumulation of lipid in enlarging adipocytes, are important determinants of blood flow regulation to adiposes tissue. Expand

TLDR
The increase in IBAT blood flow with dose of NE was associated with a progressive decline in tissue ATP, increases in ADP and AMP at high doses of NE, and progressive increases in L/P and GP/DHAP, the latter increases indicating increased reduction of the cytosolic NAD+-NADH system. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of subcutaneous depots in newborn and young rats indicates that the adipose tissue capillary may play an important role in adipocyte hypertrophy and metabolism. Expand
Cellular and molecular aspects of adipose tissue development.
TLDR
Considerable evidence now supports the view that BAT and WAT are distinct organs; in addition, the existence of distinct BAT precursor cells is demonstrated by their unique ability to express the UCP gene. Expand
Vasoconstrictor effect of high FFA/albumin ratios in adipose tissue in vivo.
TLDR
The results support the previous findings in perfused fat pads that high molar FFA/albumin ratios increase vascular resistance in adipose tissue and give further support to the suggestion that this vasoconstriction may be a link in a negative-feedback mechanism regulating FFA-mobilization in relation to FFA utilization.

Cytochemical studies of adipose tissue-associated blood vessels in untreated and thyroxine-treated hypophysectomized pig fetuses.
TLDR
Estimation of qualitative traits of the adipocyte-associated vasculature after fetal hypox with and without T4 treatment demonstrates that endocrine regulation of the differentiation of the lipid accretion in adipose tissue is more complex than the endocrineregulation of adipocyte differentiation per se. Expand
Adipocyte blood flow: influence of age, anatomic location, and dietary manipulation.
TLDR
The results suggest that adipocyte blood flow is dependent in part on anatomic location, may be further influenced by age or dietary manipulation, and is not a limiting factor in the enlargement of adipocytes during the development of spontaneous obesity. Expand
