World of Fat

Brian Cha, Graduate Student, Molecular and Integrative Physiology, University of Michigan Medical School

Pictured is a microscope image of cells that express a gene (C/EBPα) that directs them to become fat cells. Many of the cells contain spherical lipid/fat droplets. Because of the growing problem of obesity and diabetes, how fat cells form has become an increasingly important subject for research. Although the general perception is that fat cells are just depots for caloric excess, in fact, they are essential for the regulation of energy balance.
