Introduction A chronic low-grade inflammatory state of adipose tissue has been implicated in the development of insulin resistance in non-pregnant (NP) obese subjects ( Weisberg et al . 2003 , Xu et al . 2003 ). Adipocytes in obesity increase

Introduction The brown adipose tissue (BAT) is the main site of non-shivering thermogenesis in mammals and it responds to environmental stimuli such as cold and increased lipid-rich hypercaloric caloric intake, a process referred to as adaptive

Introduction Brown adipose tissue (BAT) contributes to the control of body temperature by the production of heat in response to cold. Brown adipocytes have numerous mitochondria that contain uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1). Activation of brown
