This study investigated the potential of adipose-derived matrices to induce adipogenesis in vitro and in vivo. Solutions containing basement membrane proteins and growth factors were extracted from subcutaneous adipose tissue and were induced to form gels. The authors suggested potential use for adipose tissue engineering.
