Brown and white fats: development in the hamster.


Sites occupied by multilocular brown fat in the adult hamster are occupied by unilocular cells in very young animals. Immature brown fat cells are laid down in the unilocular cell matrix at 3 to 5 days of age. White fat in the hamster does not develop from cells closely resembling mature brown fat.
