Adipocyte differentiation in relation to tumor cell development. Diagram summarizing the relationships between differentiation of normal adipose cells (midcolumn) and several types of adipose tissue tumors (lateral columns). Each type of adipose tissue tumor exhibits a predominant cell type that resembles one of the stages of differentiation of normal adipose cells. Solid-line arrows indicate the most frequently occurring cell type in each kind of tumor. Dotted-line arrows indicate the less frequently occurring cell type in that tumor.
