The paper details a modified method for isolation and culture of adipocyte precursors from pig adipose tissue. We modified the ceiling culture method for pig mature adipocytes, which use their buoyant property to allow them better adhere to a floating glass surface, where they remain viable for several weeks. The optimized conditions for adipose more cell culture is the collagenase concentration of 1mg/ml, digestion duration of two hours and FBS concentration of 15%. The method which overcomes the shortcomings of adipocyte suspension culture, can be used to study adipocyte cell biology.
