These findings indicated that adipocytes and preadipocytes express TSH receptors and that TSH induces preadipocytes to release adipokines which plays an important role in the onset of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases.
Adipogenesis process consists of the differentiation of preadipocytes to mature adipocytes which involves the accumulation of lipid droplets, changes in gene expression and cellular morphology (Bae et al.

Like neural development, adipogenesis --the process by which preadipocytes proliferate and differentiate into mature adipocytes--is tightly regulated by a cascade of transcription factors that are expressed in response to stimuli, including nutrients.
