Immunity & Ageing is calling for submissions to our collection on Obesity and Immunosenescence. Aging and obesity are high risk factors for multiple conditions and diseases. The term “adipaging” recently introduced indicates that they are both associated with inflammaging, and ameliorated by a healthy life style, clearly indicating that they may have several cellular and molecular pathways and underlying mechanisms in common.
Image: Immunofluorescence images of adipocytes from the human obese adipose tissue stained with CD1d (right) and DAPI (4’,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole), which stains the nuclei of immune cells, localized in the crown-like structures around the adipocytes. CD1d is involved in the presentation of lipids and lipoproteins to immune cells.
