To identify cells developing into adipocytes by accumulation of triglyceride, rat epididymal fat pad cells from small rats were exposed to (3)H-labeled chylomicron fatty acids in vivo and then liberated with collagenase. Tissue remnants were removed by filtration and mature fat cells by flotation. Aggregating cells were then removed by filtration through a… CONTINUE READING
