Convertible adipose tissue in mice

  title={Convertible adipose tissue in mice},
  author={Dragutin Lon{\vc}ar},
  journal={Cell and Tissue Research},
Ability to express uncoupling protein (UCP) and establish UCP-dependent thermogenesis was analyzed in anatomical areas of mice that are generally considered to be white adipose tissue: mesenterial, perimetral, epididymal, inguinal, and superficial layer of interscapular white adipose tissue. The mice were acclimatized for 1 week to 4° C; the following week they were exposed to cold stress (1 h at-20° C, 2–3 times daily). In such conditions in inguinal adipose tissue, slot-blot analysis detected… CONTINUE READING
