Histological changes of adipocytes after treatment with CL 316,243
What is it about?
The objective of this experiment was to study the effect of CL 316,243 (CL) (a highly selective β3-adrenergic receptor agonist) on cellular changes occurring in retroperitoneal white adipose tissue (RWAT) of lean and obese rats.
Why is it important?
Development of thermogenic drugs for the treatment of obesity has now focused on selective β3-adrenergic agonists. It has been postulated that thermogenic drugs might stimulate thermogenesis in BAT and induce lipolysis of WAT.
