In man only catecholamines and insulin have pronounced and acute effects on lipolysis in fat cells. In obesity the effects of these hormones seem to be normal or even increased. When the rate of lipolysis is expressed per cell there is a strong association between hormonal effect and cell size. Indicating that catecholamines and insulin may be involved in the regulation of adipocyte volume. There are, however, site variations in the effects of the regulatory hormones, which may be of importance… CONTINUE READING
