BAT by repetitive cold exposure enhances energy expenditure and lowers fat mass ( van der Lans et al . 2013 , Yoneshiro et al . 2013 ), underscoring the role of BAT in energy metabolism in humans. Brown-like or ‘beige/brite’ adipocytes can also be

the phenotypic plasticity of beige fat cells in adults has increased interest in the development of potential drugs to treat obesity and metabolic diseases ( Cannon & Nedergaard 2004 , Rosen & Spiegelman 2014 ). The origin of beige fat is unclear, but
