12) White adipocytes may grow in size but not in number.

13) Adipocines are molecules released by fibroblasts of the connective tissue present in the adipose tissue that affect the function of adipocytes.

14) Multilocular adipocytes of the brown adipose tissue are smaller that those of the white adipose tissue.

15) Brown fat adipocytes contain more mitochondria than those of the white fat.
