Differentiation of ovine brown adipocyte precursor cells in a chemically defined serum-free medium. Importance of glucocorticoids and age of animals.


The rapid apparent conversion of brown adipose tissue into white adipose tissue in newborn offspring of large mammals, such as sheep and cattle is not explained at the cellular level. To study the differentiation of lamb brown adipocyte, a genomic fragment corresponding to the uncoupling protein was cloned from an ovine DNA library. Stromal vascular… (More)
