These mice do not develop obesity and have a reduced fat mass (100,101). They always have a marked basal lipolysis and a response of lipolysis to G-adrenergic stimuli (100–102). These findings suggested than another lipase was present and active in the absence of HSL. The finding that DAG accumulates in adipocytes of these mice (103) suggested that this lipase had a preference for the hydrolysis of TAG, and was rate-limiting for this first step of lipolysis, whereas HSL was limiting for the hydrolysis of DAG.

Between that of “white” mitochondria and that of “brown” mitochondria. We think that this type of multilocular adipocyte rich in mitochondria is the morphological equivalent of a white adipocyte transdifferentiating into a brown adipocyte. Some of these cells, also found in white areas of the adipose organ of cold-exposed animals, are immunoreactive for UCP1. Of note, 80 to 95% of these cells are BrdU negative, suggesting that their development is independent from mitotic processes (42,43). Recently, it has been shown that Sv129 mice are quite resistant to obesity and diabetes in comparison with B6 mice (44).
