The adipocyte plays a critical role in energy balance. Adipose tissue growth involves an increase in adipocyte size and the formation of new adipocytes from precursor cells. For the last 20 years, the cellular and molecular mechanisms of adipocyte differentiation have been extensively studied using preadipocyte culture systems. Committed preadipocytes undergo growth arrest and subsequent terminal differentiation into adipocytes. This is accompanied by a dramatic increase in expression of… Expand

TLDR
This work has shown that in vitro preadipocyte culture systems that recapitulate most of the critical aspects of fat cell formation in vivo have allowed a meticulous dissection of the cellular and molecular events involved in the adipogenesis process. Expand
Hormonal signaling and transcriptional control of adipocyte differentiation.
TLDR
Knowledge concerning the transcriptional events mediating adipocyte differentiation provides a basis for understanding the physiologic processes associated with adipose tissue as well as for the development of therapeutic interventions in obesity and its related disorders. Expand
Symposium : Adipocyte Function , Differentiation and Metabolism Hormonal Signaling and Transcriptional Control of Adipocyte Differentiation 1 , 2
Recent advances regarding the biology of adipose tissue have identified the adipocyte as an important mediator in many physiologic and pathologic processes regarding energy metabolism. ConsiderationExpand
Connective tissue growth factor inhibits adipocyte differentiation.
TLDR
Data show that CTGF inhibits the adipocyte differentiation program in primary cultures of mouse preadipocytes and Expression of CTGF mRNA was twofold higher in the central fat depots of mice compared with subcutaneous fat, suggesting a potential role for CTGF in vivo. Expand
Adipose Development: From Stem Cell to Adipocyte
TLDR
Following commitment to the adipose lineage, growth-arrested preadipocytes can differentiate to adipocytes by treatment with insulin-like growth factor 1, glucocorticoid and an agent that increases cAMP level. Expand
Adipocyte differentiation and gene expression.
TLDR
This article discusses the various models used for studying the preadipocyte differentiation process and focuses on those genetic events that link effectors to induction of adipocyte gene expression, with the mouse 3T3-L1 cell culture line described in detail. Expand
The calcium-sensing receptor promotes adipocyte differentiation and adipogenesis through PPARγ pathway
TLDR
Activation of CaSR in adipocytes is observed to be involved in the pathogenesis of obesity by promoting adipocyte differentiation and adipogenesis, which might be achieved by upregulating PPARγ and its downstream gene expressions. Expand
Adipocyte and adipogenesis.
TLDR
Adipogenesis is the process during which fibroblast like preadipocytes developed into mature adipocytes, a well-orchestrated multistep process that requires the sequential activation of numerous transcription factors, including the CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP) gene family and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ). Expand
Adipocyte Growth and Factors Influencing Adipocyte Life Cycle
TLDR
Several factors affect adipocytes in their life cycle, and in the current chapter, major factors that influence the adipocyte life cycle are categorized into adipokines, transcription factors, hormonal factors, and nutritional and environmental factors. Expand
The calcium-sensing receptor promotes adipocyte differentiation and adipogenesis through PPARc pathway
TLDR
It is observed that activation of CaSR significantly promoted adipocyte dif- ferentiation and adipogenesis in human SW872 adipocytes, which might be achieved by upregulating PPARc and its downstream gene expressions, which may be involved in the pathogenesis of obesity. Expand

The role of growth hormone/insulin-like growth factors in adipocyte differentiation.
TLDR
It can be concluded that GH is able to enlarge the pool of adipocyte precursor cells capable of differentiating into mature adipocytes, which occurs under the control of other adipogenic hormones, and thus the net result of its biological action is aimed at reducing body fat. Expand

The adipose cell is now known to play a complex role in energy homeostasis, energy storage and signaling to other tissues concerning the state of energy balance. The past few years have seen anExpand
Transcriptional regulation of gene expression during adipocyte differentiation.
TLDR
Cell culture models (e.g. 3T3-L1 cells) have been developed and transcription factors coordinate the expression of genes involved in creating and maintaining the adipocyte phenotype including the insulin-responsive glucose transporter (GLUT4), stearoyl CoA desaturase 1 (SCD1), and the fatty acid binding protein (422/aP2).

ADD1/SREBP1 promotes adipocyte differentiation and gene expression linked to fatty acid metabolism.
TLDR
Data indicate that ADD1 plays an important role in fat cell gene expression and differentiation, and suggest that it may function by augmenting a step in PPARgamma-mediated transcription. Expand
Analysis of gene expression during differentiation of adipogenic cells in culture and hormonal control of the developmental program.
TLDR
It is found that hormone treatment leads to a precocious accumulation of specific RNA for all of the clones studied, and analysis of the temporal control of RNA accumulation during differentiation indicates that there are different categories of RNAs, some of which accumulate by day 1 after treatment while others are not apparent until day 3.

This review largely focuses on the control of fat cell acquisition and loss and the influence of these processes on adipose tissue mass and regional distribution. Expand

TLDR
The effects of TNF-alpha on collagen mRNA levels were dependent upon the state of differentiation of 3T3-L1 cells, and the abundance of type IV procollagen transcripts was elevated in adipocytes. Expand

TLDR
The adipose precursor cells derived from the stromal-vascular fraction of adipose tissues from various species, including the human, are diploid but have a limited life span and when transplanted into animals, cells from both sources develop into mature fat cells. Expand

TLDR
The expression pattern of pref-1 in embryonic tissues and its presence in tumors indicate that in addition to its function in adipocyte differentiation,Pref-1 may have a broader role in differentiation and development. Expand
