Explants of human adipose tissue were maintained in culture for 1 wk in different glucose concentrations with or without the addition of insulin. After this period of time the explants were carefully washed and then subjected to short-term incubations in the same glucose concentration and in the absence of insulin. With this experimental design the influence of long-term exposure to insulin and different glucose concentrations on adipose tissue metabolism could be studied.
