Scientists in Sweden conducted a study "to examine whether cold-induced VEGF gene expression in brown adipose tissue involved generation of hypoxic oxygen levels by thermogenic processes, we cold-exposed wild-type mice, as well as uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1)-ablated mice in which no thermogenesis in brown adipocytes can be induced."
"Cold exposure stimulated VEGF expression in both wild-type and UCP1-ablated mice. Unexpectedly, the effect was 3-fold higher in UCP1-ablated animals, whereas cultured brown adipocytes from both genotypes...
