Researchers from the University of Massachusetts and the University of Copenhagen describe four human adipocyte fat cell subtypes, along with the corresponding mesenchymal progenitor cells giving rise to them. Using RNA sequencing, the team profiled gene expression patterns in mesenchymal progenitor cells generated at different stages of differentiation in the lab, uncovering four specialized adipocyte subtypes that showed distinct tissue functions in follow-up experiments.
