Comments The typical mature adipocyte is relatively large (30–50 micron diameter) and can reach a size of greater than 120 µm under certain conditions. See also Morgado E et al., 1990, PMID 2152294, p.25 right column top paragraph: "Another exceptional cell type is the adipocyte (type N° 6). Its soma is comparatively larger (mean diameter between 30 and 50 µm)."
