Seasonal adjustments in Siberian hamster adiposity are triggered by day length changes [i.e., short "winter-like" days (SDs) elicit body fat decreases vs. long "summer-like" days (LDs)]. These and other white adipose tissue (WAT) mass decreases traditionally have been ascribed to lipolysis triggered by sympathetically mediated, adrenal medullary released epinephrine; however, recent evidence suggests that direct sympathetic innervation of WAT also is important. Therefore, the contributions of… CONTINUE READING
