Totowa, NJ 21 22 Part I / Adipose Tissue: Structure and Function ketone bodies, but also TAG synthesis, storage, and secretion as very-low-density lipoprotein [VLDL]-TAG), and adipose tissue (re-esterification). These processes of TAG storage and hydrolysis in WAT are highly regulated by hormonal (mainly insulin and catecholamines), metabolic (glucose, NEFA), and nutritional (energy intake, contribution of carbohydrates and lipids to this intake) factors. These regulations are essential to maintain body weight homeostasis; alterations in these processes, resulting in imbalance between storage and mobilization of TAG in WAT, may result in obesity.
