Maintained by creativebioarray
Adipocytes are cells specialized in storing energy in the form of fat, mainly triglycerides, in organelles called lipid droplets. There are two major types of adipocytes in mammals: white adipocytes contain one large lipid droplet and are involved in fat storage, while brown adipocytes have many smaller lipid droplets and numerous mitochondria that generate energy, maintaining body temperature.  |
