Abstract/Summary Adipose tissue in human can be divided into two main categories, being white adipose tissue and brown adipose tissue. White adipose tissue (WAT) is located in the subcutis (subcutaneous) and in intra-abdominal locations in association with the viscera (visceral). WAT functions as a storage facility, sequestering energy in the form of triglyceride, which is found in the cytoplasmic, unilocular lipid droplet within mature adipocytes. Accumulation or mobilisation of these fat stores occurs in the face of varying energy requirements.
