(1) Male Wistar, and Zucker (lean and obese) rats aged 7 weeks of age were divided into three groups; warm acclimated (25 degrees C for 11 weeks), cold acclimated (10 degrees C for 11 weeks), and deacclimated (10 degrees C for 9 weeks and 25 degrees C for 2 weeks) groups. (2) Density of lipid droplet in brown adipose tissue (BAT) of obese rats was the greatest and that in lean rats was less than that in Wistar rats. (3) Mass of brown adipose tissues (BATM) per body mass (BM) was greater in obese rats than lean rats. (4) Marked weight-reducing effect observed in obese rats during cold acclimation is partly resulted from greater BATM/BM.
