Bringing together the research and findings of leading experts from across the world, Adipose Tissue and Inflammation focuses on the contribution of adipose tissue to local and systemic inflammation. Demonstrating the endocrine like nature of adipose tissue, this book— Looks at the direct relation between adipokines and inflammation. The field of adipose tissue biology has been expanding at a very rapid pace in the last few years. Numerous advances have been made since publication of the first edition of this book, in terms of basic adipocyte biology, understanding of the determinants of obesity, distribution of body fat and weight loss, as well as the mechanisms linking excess adiposity to various co-morbidities. The expression of mRNA MCP-1 in visceral adipose tissue was positively correlated with body mass index (r = , p = ) but not with HOMA-IR, whereas TNF-α in visceral adipose tissue was.

In book: Adipose Tissue Inflammation and Metabolic Disorders we describe how the cross talk between adipose tissue inflammation and the non-adipocyte resident cells present in tissue is.

Adipose Tissue Inflammation. In obesity, adipose white tissue is the target of major cellular and structural modification. Macrophages are major components of the stromal vascular fraction of adipose tissue and contribute to the low-grade inflammation that occurs with obesity. Adipose tissue has traditionally been classified into white- and brown-type adipose tissue, although a third type of inducible brownlike adipose tissue or {"}beige{"} has emerged. Chronic nutrient excess leads to the expansion and dysfunction of white adipose tissue, especially in the visceral : Xavier S. Revelo, Helen Luck, Shawn Winer, Daniel A. Winer.

Following a look at adipose tissue development and morphology, the authors go on to examine its metabolic and endocrine functions and its role in disease. The final section deals with comparative and evolutionary aspects of the tissue. This book brings together many leading experts in the field to provide an up to date and comprehensive review of the key aspects of adipose tissue. It therefore includes chapters on evolution, development and inflammation together with a detailed review of brown and beige adipose tissue biology and their potential significance in preventing or.   Juge-Aubry CE, Somm E, Giusti V, Pernin A, Chicheportiche R, Verdumo C, et al. Adipose tissue is a major source of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist: upregulation in obesity and inflammation. Diabetes. ;52(5)–Cited by: 6. Adipose tissue is located in several anatomical locations. These include subcutaneous adipose tissue, which is located under the skin and stores ~ 80% of total body fat with the major stores found in the upper (abdominal, subscapular fat) and lower body (gluteal–femoral fat). Intraabdominal adipose tissues include the visceral adipose tissue located around the digestive organs (mesenteric.
