Cover: Adipose tissue is a highly heterogeneous organ that consists of adipocytes, nerves, vascular endothelial cells, immune cells, and fibroblasts. The cover image illustrates the microenvironment in adipose tissue, similar to complex traffic and road networks, that involves dynamic cell–cell communication and circulating factors from other organs to modulate the development of beige adipocytes. See pages 466–479 by Cheong and Xu for details.
