Fig. 110. Developing fat from subcutaneous tissue of pig embryo 5 inches long

Small artery breaking up into capillary network' groups of fat cells developing in embryonic connective tissue.


Fat cells usually develop in groups or masses around blood vessels (Fig. 10). The neighboring groups gradually enlarge and approach each other, but do not fuse, thus leaving more or less fibrous connective tissue between them, which constitutes the interlobular tissue seen in adult adipose tissue. Among the individual cells in a lobule there is also a small amount of fibrous tissue present. From the mode of development a small artery usually affords the blood supply for each lobule.
