Adipose tissue is mainly made of adipocytes.
Fat is stored in the form of globule in the cytoplasm of adipocytes.
Due to large amount of stored fat cytoplasm of the cell is restricted to the periphery of cell.
It forms a store house of fats called panniculus.
Brown fat is also a type of adipose tissue found in children in which a fat cell has many globules.
Adipose tissue is a loose fibrous connective tissue.
To store triglycerides(fats) in the form of single large droplet that occupies the major part of the cell.
To provide mechanical protection around some major organs. eg: kindney
Acts as an insulating layer. i.e. prevents the loss oof heat from the body.
It also acts as a means of energy storage.(the food excess to requirement is stored in the form of fat in adipocytes.)
it serve as a fat reservior.
provide shape to the limbs and the body .
keeps visceral organs in position.
acts as insulator.
there are three main ways that molecules can pass through a phospholipid membrane. the first way requires no energy input by the cell and is called passive transport. the second way requires that the cell uses energy to pull in or pump out certain molecules and ions and is called active transport.
living organisms respond to their environment. response to stimuli is an important characteristic of life. that causes a living organism to react is called a stimulus (plural is stimuli) stimuli can be external or internal. it the organism to stay in balance.
