Example text

In plasma, CETP participates in the modulation of reverse cholesterol transport by facilitating the transfer of cholesterol esters from high-density lipoprotein (HDL) to triglyceride-rich apoB-containing lipoproteins. VLDLs, in particular, are converted to low-density lipoproteins (LDLs), which are subjected to hepatic clearance by the apoB/E receptor system. Adipose tissue probably represents one of the major sources of CETP in humans. Therefore, WAT represents a cholesterol storage organ, whereby peripheral cholesterol is taken up by HDL particles, acting as cholesterol efflux acceptors, and is returned for hepatic excretion.

In adipose tissue, fat cells are individually held in place by delicate reticular fibers clustering in lobular masses bounded by fibrous septa surrounded by a rich capillary network. In adults, adipocytes may comprise around 90% of adipose mass accounting only for roughly 25% of the total cell population. Thus, adipose tissue itself is composed not only of adipocytes, but also other cell types called the stroma-vascular fraction, comprising blood cells, endothelial cells, pericytes, and adipose precursor cells among others (Figure 5); these account for the remaining 75% of the total cell population, representing a wide range of targets for extensive autocrine-paracrine cross-talk.
