Term Detail
MP term:abnormal brown fat cell morphology
Synonym: abnormal brown adipocyte morphology
Synonym: abnormal brown lipocyte morphology
MP id: MP:0009116
Definition: any structural anomaly of cells from the thermogenic form of adipose tissue found in newborns of many species, including humans, and in hibernating mammals; brown fat is capable of rapid liberation of energy and seems to be important in the maintenance of body temperature immediately after birth and upon waking from hibernation; brown adipocytes contain multiple small droplets of triglycerides and a high number of mitochondria
