OBESITY TYPE 2 DIABETES AND THE ADIPOSE ORGAN
16 in stock
A Pictorial Atlas from Research to Clinical Applications Describes anatomic and morphologic aspects of adipose tissues relevant to obesity therapy Presents new results regarding adipose organ anatomy in different physiologic conditions Introduces white-to-pink transdifferentiation of adipocytes and its implications This richly illustrated book provides a detailed description of the gross anatomy, light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, and electron microscopy of the adipose organ, which comprises subcutaneous and visceral fat depots. Findings in mice of different genetic backgrounds (obesity-prone and resistant) and maintained in standard and various physiologic and pathologic conditions are presented. The latter conditions include chronic cold exposure, warm exposure, fasting, pregnancy–lactation, and obesity. Features of the fetal adipose organ are described in a separate chapter, and results from transgenic mice are also presented when relevant.
