  1. bone fat

    Bone fat, also known as marrow fat or yellow marrow, refers to the fat tissue found within the medullary cavity of long bones such as the femur and humerus. This type of fat plays a vital role in energy storage, hematopoiesis support (process of creating new blood cells), and regulates bone remodelling and haematopoietic stem cell function. It is different from other fat deposits in the body due to its location and functions. Bone fat is also of significant interest in health and disease research, including obesity, anorexia, osteoporosis, and arthritis.
