Fat cells are specialised to store large amounts of fat that act as metabolic energy depots. However, fat cells carry out many other vital functions such as appetite regulation. Fat cells can talk to each other, the brain and the other organs. In this episode, Professor Susanne Mandrup talks about fat cells, as well as the epigenetics and DNA associated with fat cells and metabolic disease.
