The increased white adipose tissue (WAT) mass associated with obesity is the result of both hyperplasia and hypertrophy of adipocytes. However, the mechanisms controlling adipocyte number are unknown in part because the identity of the physiological adipocyte progenitor cells has not been defined in vivo. In this report, we employ a variety of approaches, including a noninvasive assay for following fat mass reconstitution in vivo, to identify a subpopulation of early adipocyte progenitor cells… Expand
Identification of a mesenchymal progenitor cell hierarchy in adipose tissue
TLDR
Single-cell RNA sequencing was used to identify distinct types of progenitor cells in murine and human adipose tissues and to predict lineage relationships in an unbiased manner, identifying a mesenchymal cell hierarchy involved in adipocyte formation. Expand
Seeking the source of adipocytes in adult white adipose tissues
TLDR
It is proposed that PDGFRα+ cells are remodeling stem cells in adult WAT, a subpopulation of those expressing CD34 and Sca1, and have unique morphology whereby long dendritic processes contact numerous cell types in the microenvironment. Expand
Cellular plasticity in white adipose tissue: in vivo identification of bipotent adipocyte progenitors in adult white adipose tissue
TLDR
It is demonstrated that brown adipocytes (BA) that are induced by 3-adrenergic receptor activation (ADRB3) in WAT arise from the proliferation and differentiation of cells that express platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFR), CD34 and Sca1 ( PDGFR⁡+ cells). Expand
Limitation of adipose tissue by the number of embryonic progenitor cells
TLDR
It was found that when chimeric animals were fed a high-fat-diet, animals with low levels of chimerism showed a significantly lower adipose tissue mass than animals with high levels of Chimerism, suggesting that proliferative potential of adipocyte precursors is limited and can restrain the development of obesity.

Origin of White and Brown Adipose Cells From Vascular Endothelium: A Dissertation
TLDR
The results indicate that murine endothelial cells of adipose tissue are pluripotent and can potentially give rise to preadipocytes, and suggest that a considerable number of adipocytes progenitors may have a non-endothelial cell origin. Expand
Identification of Metabolically Distinct Adipocyte Progenitor Cells in Human Adipose Tissues.
TLDR
A mechanistic explanation for the heterogeneity of human white adipose tissue and a potential basis for dysregulated adipocyte function in type 2 diabetes are provided. Expand
Adipose Tissue-Residing Progenitors (Adipocyte Lineage Progenitors and Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ADSC))
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the current knowledge of brown, white, beige, and marrow adipose tissue with a specific focus on the formation of each tissue from tissue-resident progenitor cells. Expand
A stromal cell population that inhibits adipogenesis in mammalian fat depots
TLDR
Single-cell transcriptomics reveals that, in mice and humans, a population of cells in the stromal vascular fraction of adipose tissue regulates adipogenesis by suppressing adipocyte formation in a paracrine manner. Expand
Exploring the activated adipogenic niche: Interactions of macrophages and adipocyte progenitors
TLDR
The cellular elements of adipogenic niches are discussed in greater detail and a strategy to isolate and characterize the subpopulations of macrophages and adipocyte progenitors that actively participate in adrenergic tissue remodeling is reported. Expand
Identification of inducible brown adipocyte progenitors residing in skeletal muscle and white fat
TLDR
A subpopulation of adipogenic progenitors residing in murine brown fat, white fat, and skeletal muscle is identified and a dynamic interplay between these progenitor cells and inductive signals that act in concert to specify brown adipocyte development is demonstrated. Expand

White Fat Progenitor Cells Reside in the Adipose Vasculature
TLDR
The adipose vasculature appears to function as a progenitor niche and may provide signals for adipocyte development in mice used to isolate proliferating and renewing adipogenic progenitors. Expand
A morphological study of the adipocyte precursor.
TLDR
The early preadipocyte (without lipid droplets) and the adipoblast cannot be morphologically distinguished in situ from the fibroblast; therefore it cannot be excluded that fibroblasts and adipoblasts are the same cells in adipose tissue, possibly deriving from the pericyte. Expand
Cellular program controlling the recovery of adipose tissue mass: An in vivo imaging approach
TLDR
A leptin withdrawal protocol was used to induce a state of acute leptin deficiency in wild type mice and revealed that this cellular response was associated with induction of mRNAs for the entire pathway of enzymes necessary to convert glucose into acetyl-CoA and glycerol, key substrates for the synthesis of triglycerides.

TLDR
All together these experiments strongly suggest the possibility to modulate the plasticity of the adipose organ with therapeutic implications for obesity and related disorders. Expand
Mouse adipose-derived stem cells undergo multilineage differentiation in vitro but primarily osteogenic and chondrogenic differentiation in vivo.
TLDR
After induction in conditioned medium, the muADAS cells gained the ability to undergo adipogenic, osteogenic, chondrogenic, myogenic, and hematopoietic differentiation in vitro, but their ability to regenerate muscle or reconstitute bone marrow was found to be limited. Expand
Preadipocytes in the human subcutaneous adipose tissue display distinct features from the adult mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that adipocyte progenitor cells, i.e., the preadipocytes, are included in the CD34+/CD31− cell fraction, which displays distinct features from the adult mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells. Expand

Dynamics of fat cell turnover in humans
TLDR
It is shown that adipocyte number is a major determinant for the fat mass in adults, however, the number of fat cells stays constant in adulthood in lean and obese individuals, even after marked weight loss, indicating that thenumber of adipocytes is set during childhood and adolescence. Expand

TLDR
Examination of the phenotypes and gene expression profile of the human adipose tissue-derived stromal cells (ATSC) in the undifferentiated states, and compared with that of bone marrow stromAL cells (BMSC) shows that ATSC have a marker expression that is similar to that of BMSC. Expand

TLDR
The A-ZIP/F-1 phenotype suggests a mouse model for the human disease lipoatrophic diabetes (Seip-Berardinelli syndrome), indicating that the lack of fat can cause diabetes. Expand
