Zsírszövet: a gyorsreagálású energiatároló !

Adipose tissue, which consists of adipocytes (fat cells) (Fig. 22-4), is amorphous and widely distributed in the body: under the skin, around the deep blood vessels, and in the abdominal cavity. It typically makes up about 15% of the mass of a young adult human, with approximately 65% of this mass being in the form of triacylglycerols. Adipocytes are metabolically very active, responding quickly to hormonal stimuli in a metabolic interplay with the liver, skeletal muscles, and the heart.
