Abstract

Intra-abdominal fat is an established risk factor for the metabolic syndrome. In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Tran et al. (2008) test the cell-autonomous and location-related properties of transplanted intra-abdominal and subcutaneous fat depots. While subcutaneous fat seems to confer metabolic benefits, species differences in adipose biology justify caution in interpreting the results.
