WHAT DOES ADIPOCYTE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

adipocyte

Adipocyte

Adipocytes, also known as lipocytes and fat cells, are the cells that primarily compose adipose tissue, specialized in storing energy as fat. There are two types of adipose tissue, white adipose tissue and brown adipose tissue, which are also known as white fat and brown fat, respectively, and comprise two types of fat cells. Most recently, the presence of beige adipocytes with a gene expression pattern distinct from either white or brown adipocytes has been described. Also another special type of adipose tissue is being studied, pink adipose tissue, which seems to be involved in mammillary duct development in female breasts.

Definition of adipocyte in the English dictionary
