Adipose Tissue in Health and Disease

Todd Leff (Editor), James G. Granneman (Editor)
ISBN: 978-3-527-31857-5
530 pages
April 2010, Wiley-Blackwell
Adipose Tissue in Health and Disease (3527318577) cover image
This timely and most comprehensive reference available on the topic covers all the different aspects vital in the fight against the global obesity epidemic.
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.
The result is an essential resource for cell and molecular biologists, physiologists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and those working in the pharmaceutical industry.
