White to brite adipocyte transition and back again.

Abstract

Identification and characterization of a third type of adipocyte known as brite (brown-in-white) adipocytes has drawn considerable attention, as these cells are thought to regulate energy expenditure and may help combat obesity. Remarkably, white adipocytes can adopt the characteristics of brite adipocytes following cold stimulation, and this process is reversible in vivo.
