Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, and the Adipose Organ: A Comprehensive Pictorial Atlas
Explore the Intricacies of the Adipose Organ and its Connection to Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes
Delve into the fascinating world of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and the adipose organ with this comprehensive pictorial atlas. Authored by Saverio Cinti, an esteemed researcher and expert in the field, this book offers a detailed and visually captivating exploration of the adipose organ, shedding light on its role in these prevalent health conditions.
A Visual Journey through the Adipose Organ:
This atlas takes readers on a visual journey through the adipose organ, providing a deep understanding of its gross anatomy, light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, and electron microscopy. The author presents findings from studies conducted on mice with varying genetic backgrounds, including those prone to obesity and those resistant to it. These studies encompass a range of physiological and pathological conditions, such as chronic cold exposure, fasting, pregnancy-lactation, and obesity.
Unveiling New Insights:
This atlas presents groundbreaking research and discoveries regarding the adipose organ. It explores the concept of white-to-pink transdifferentiation, a process where white adipocytes transform into pink adipocytes, and its potential implications for breast cancer tumor biology. Furthermore, it examines the possibility of using browning of the adipose organ as a therapeutic tool for obesity. The book also delves into the unique features of the fetal adipose organ and presents relevant findings from transgenic mice.
Navigating the Human Adipose Organ:
Several chapters of the atlas are dedicated to the human adipose organ, providing valuable insights into its anatomy and function. Magnetic resonance imaging and fetal findings are explored, offering a comprehensive understanding of the human adipose organ’s characteristics and its role in obesity and related disorders.
