The size, number, and rate of formation of mature adipocytes were studied in the epididymal pads and retroperitoneal adipose depots of the Sprague-Dawley rat. Early growth of these depots was accompanied by progressive enlargement of adipose cells as well as by increases in number. Beyond the 15th wk of life, the depot grew exclusively by the process of cellular enlargement, with no further change in cell number. Severe starvation during the 6th wk of life followed by normal feeding had no… CONTINUE READING
