Adipose tissue development in the fetal pig after decapitation.


The effect of fetal decapitation on adipose tissue development in utero was studied in the pig. Pig fetuses were decapitated at 45 days of gestation, and dorsal subcutaneous adipose tissue was analyzed at 110 days of gestation. The histology, histochemistry, ultrastructure, size and lipoprotein lipase activity of adipocytes from decapitated and sham… (More)
