Isolation of Lymphocytes from Murine Visceral Adipose Tissue
Authors:  Sonja Valentić, Felix M. Wensveen and Bojan Polić, date: 12/05/2015, view: 4449, Q&A: 0
Several studies have shown that the detrimental influence of abdominal obesity on metabolic processes is mediated by the intra-abdominal fat depot. Visceral adipose tissue has been shown to be an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease, ...
Excision of Visceral Adipose Tissue from Live Mice (VATectomy)
Authors:  Marko Šestan, Felix M. Wensveen and Bojan Polić, date: 12/05/2015, view: 3057, Q&A: 0
The visceral adipose tissue (VAT) has been shown to play an important role in various biological functions. It is a storage depot for nutrients and it is an important endocrine organ producing hormones that control systemic metabolism (McGown et al. ...
