While the cold effect in part may be mediated by IL-4 and its receptor IL-4Ra in the adipocyte precursors, in mature adipose cells a reduction in the IL4Ra is observed and probably this effect may include diverse mediators, including IL-33 and Met-enkephalin [47, 48].
In previous studies, performed by our group, primary human adipose cells were evaluated and observed that a reduction on temperature from 37[degrees]C to 30[degrees]C during a period may resemble a cold induction with an increase of thermogenic proteins, UCP-1 and PGC-1[alpha].
TNF[alpha] acts as a paracrine mediator to enhance insulin resistance in adipose cells. Furthermore, it is an important mediator of several cardiovascular events, such as heart failure and atherosclerosis [60].
Generally, the adipose tissue is composed in large part of adipose cells and the adipose cells could be divided into white adipose cells and brown adipose cells that differ in the microscopic morphologies and functions (Saito 1997).
We found that c-Kit + ASCs had an intrinsic proangiogenic capability and stimulated IL-3 release, which could promote the proliferation of 4T1 breast cancer cells or the growth of mature adipose cells. However, the tumor microenvironment in solid tumors is hypoxic, and c-Kit has been reported to participate in the formation of the tumor vasculature via promoting HIF-1[alpha]-mediated VEGF expression [46,47].
On the other hand, the capillary number was determined in relation with the number of adipose cells in both tissues at a magnification of 40x (Figures 1(a) and 1(b)).
