Adipose Tissue Definition
What Is Adipose Tissue?

Adipose Tissue is a type of connective tissue which is focused for the storage of neutral fats (lipids). Based on the gross physical appearance adipose tissue has different names. They are white fat, which can be yellowish if the animal's diet is rich in carotenoids, and brown fat, containing vascularization and respiratory pigments. Among them the most common type of adipose cell is white fat. The adipose tissue is present in different sites of the mammalian body and their functions vary according the location. Brown adipose tissue is mainly found in subscapular, interscapular, and mediastinal areas. Brown adipose cells are associated with thermogenesis (heat production), mainly in hibernating and newborn mammals. In humans, adipose tissue is located beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat), around internal organs (visceral fat), and in the bone marrow (yellow bone marrow). Adipose tissue is found in specific locations which are referred to as 'adipose depots.' Adipose tissue contains several cell types, with the highest percentage of cells being adipocytes, which contain fat droplets. Adipose tissue is derived from lipoblasts. The main function of the adipose tissue is to store energy in the form of fat, although it also cushions and insulates the body.
