Abstract

Adipocyte precursor cells generate lipid-filled mature adipocytes in multiple tissues during a high-fat diet and in skin during hair follicle growth. In Science, Plikus et al. report that myofibroblasts can generate lipid-filled adipocytes in large skin wounds that regenerate hair follicles, suggesting a new source of adipogenic progenitor cells.
