The fungicide triflumizole also acts through PPAR[gamma] to induce adipogenesis in MSCs and preadipocytes in vitro through a PPAR[gamma]-dependent mechanism and promotes increased WAT depot size and altered MSC programming in vivo (Li et al.
Considering that oxidative stress leads to a release of zinc from MT and to cellular zinc depletion, this condition as well as zinc deficiency due to decreased absorption, increased excretion or increased requirements could possibly lead to diabetes mellitus Furthermore, zinc increased phosphorylation of serine residues and therefore activation of Akt in preadipocytes and adipocytes thereby enhancing GLUT translocation.
Adipose tissue engineering strategies have commonly involved the use of seeding preadipocytes on appropriate polymeric scaffolds.
Although adipocytes are the main cells in WAT, this tissue also contains preadipocytes (adipocytes precursor cells, 15-50%), macrophages, fibroblasts, leukocytes and many collagen fibers, which provide structural support.
Over a period of 10 days or more, immature fat cells, called preadipocytes, go through several stages to become mature fat cells, or adipocytes.
