Catecholamines and glucagon are known inducers of the lipolytic activity, while the stimulation of lipolysis is attenuated by adenosine and protaglandin E2. Interestingly, HSL deficiency leads to male sterility and adipocyte hypertrophy, but not to obesity, with an unaltered basal lipolytic activity suggesting that other lipases may also play a relevant role in fat mobilization. The lipid droplets contained in adipocytes are coated by structural proteins, such as perilipin, that stabilize the single fat drops and prevent triglyceride ADIPOSE TISSUE hydrolysis in the basal state.

At the sites of early fat development, a multilocular morphology of adipocytes predominates, reflecting the early developmental stage. Microscopic studies have shown that the second trimester may be a critical period for the development of obesity in later life. At the beginning of the third trimester, adipocytes are present in the main fat depots but are still relatively small. During embryonic development it is important to emphasize the temporospacial tight coordination of angiogenesis with the formation of fat cell clusters.
