From: The brown adipocyte differentiation pathway in birds: An evolutionary road not taken

  Volume density (μm3/100 μm3 of cell)
Cell type Cytoplasm Nuclei Mitochondria Lipid droplets
ABALCs 73.17 ± 4.1* 7.88 ± 2.5 4.18 ± 0.58* 14.8 ± 3.9*
Abdominal fat 5.91 ± 1.0* 2.44 ± 1.1 0.71 ± 0.14* 90.9 ± 1.6*
  1. *Significantly different at α = 0.05. One-way ANOVA; Kruskal-Wallis on ranks.
