Adipocyte dedifferentiation has recently gained attention as a process underpinning adipocyte plasticity; however, a lack of suitable experimental platforms has hampered studies into the underlying mechanisms. Here, we developed a microscope-mountable ceiling culture chip that provides a stable yet tunable culture environment for long-term live-imaging of dedifferentiating adipocytes. A detailed spatiotemporal analysis of mature adipocyte dedifferentiation utilizing the culture platform and Cre-recombinase tracers revealed the involvement of dynamic actin remodeling for lipid droplet (LD) secretion during adipocyte dedifferentiation. Additionally, Hippo, Hedgehog, and PPAR gamma signaling pathways were identified as potent regulators of adipocyte dedifferentiation. Contrary to the belief that adult adipocytes are relatively static, we show that adipocytes are very dynamic, relying on actin-driven mechanical forces to execute LD extrusion and intercellular LD transfer processes.
