Figure 2: Adipose tissue: cellular components and molecules synthesized. Expansion of the adipose tissue during weight gain leads to the recruitment of macrophages through various signals, which might include chemokines synthesized by adipocytes, such as CC-chemokine ligand 2. Various mediators synthesized by adipocytes and resident macrophages might contribute to local and systemic inflammation. The overall “adipocytokine–cytokine cocktail” might favor a pro-inflammatory milieu. (Courtesy: Herbert Tilg, Nature Reviews, Immunology, 2006, vol. 6)
