Lean and adipose tissue growth are two of the most important targets for manipulation in commercial livestock. Adipose tissue growth occurs by both hyperplasia and hypertrophy. The processes involved in adipocyte hypertrophy are relatively well understood but much less is known about adipocyte hyperplasia. The mature adipocyte has little capacity for cell division and the hyperplastic capacity of adipose tissue resides in a population of fibroblast-like adipocyte precursor cells. The origin of… CONTINUE READING
