Abstract

Adipocyte differentiation and function have become areas of intense focus in the field of energy metabolism; however, understanding the role of specific genes inthe establishment and maintenance of fat cell function can be challenging and complex. In this review, we offer practical guidelines for the study of adipocyte development and function. We discuss improved cellular and genetic systems for the study of adipose biology and highlight recent insights gained from these new approaches.
