The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database.

Definition:The volume of a single isolated fat cell, a connective tissue cell specialized for the synthesis and storage of fat; such cells consist of a large cytoplasmic vesicle filled with globules of triglycerides with the nucleus displaced to one side and the cytoplasm seen as a thin line around the fat vesicle.
Comment:This is not to be used for measurement of a tissue. For tissue-level measurements use terms from the "body fat" branches of the ontology.
