Differentiation of newborn rat preadipocytes in culture: effects of insulin and dexamethasone.

Abstract

A preadipocyte cell population isolated from the inguinal tissue of 3-day-old rats converts at confluence into mature adipocytes when cultured with insulin (10(-9) M). Insulin is necessary only from Day 4 postplating. If the addition of insulin is further delayed, the proportion of cells which will undergo adipose conversion decreases. A loss of the… (More)
