What exactly is a “fat cell”? Are they comprised of the same structures as any other animal cells (other than sex cells)? And, do fat cells undergo mitosis (cellular division of non-sex cells)…or is our body’s population of fat cells totally dependent on our fat intake?
FYI: I did Google some images of fat cells with a distinct nucleus, but no mention or portrayal of other typical cellular structures. And, instead of finding info on fat cell anatomy, I found repeated info on how the body breaks down fats to pass through the cell membrane for fat storage. Wikipedia, for one, echoed this same info found repeated through many previously Googled links. Can the SD provide me some insight? Just curious.
