Nervous and Pharmacological Regulation of Vascular Reactions in Adipose Tissue

Abstract

During the last 10–15 years a considerable amount of information has been accumulated concerning the biochemistry of adipose tissue. In contrast, the physiological regulation of circulation and metabolism in the intact adipose tissue is less well known. This may be due to the fact that adipose tissue is diffusely distributed in the body and therefore difficult to isolate with blood flow and nervous supply still intact. Recently, however, Heim and Hull (1) have been able to measure blood flow in brown adipose tissue in newborn rabbits. They found resting blood flow values to be about 90 ml/min x 100g, which could be increased to above 3 00 ml/min x 100g during exposure to cold. These very large blood flow values support the assumption that brown adipose tissue plays a role in thermoregulation.
