The effects of dexamethasone (dex) on newly differentiated adipocytes in primary culture derived from mesenteric, retroperitoneal, epididymal, and inguinal subcutaneous adipose tissues of male rats were studied. The degree of differentiation was similar in these adipose precursor cells derived from different regions as assessed by lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity, an early marker of adipocyte differentiation. LPL activity was increased by addition of dex, and no differences in degree of… CONTINUE READING
