Abstract

Adipose tissue is the main site of storage and mobilization of lipid. In a recent study published in Nature, Arner et al. (2011) report that high storage and low removal of adipose triglycerides promotes obesity, whereas low storage and low removal favor the development of dyslipidemia in humans.
