Lipid metabolism is central to the function of white adipose tissue, with the tissue having a central role in storing triacylglycerides following feeding and releasing free fatty acids and monoacylglycerides during periods of fasting. In addition, lipid species have been suggested to play a role in lipotoxicity and as signaling molecules during adipose tissue inflammation. This chapter details how mass spectrometry (MS) can be used to profile a range of lipid species found in adipose tissue. Th
