Studies on the triglyceride - fatty acid cycle

Abstract:

The triglyceride-free fatty acid (TG-FFA) cycle was studied in white adipose tissue. The major aims of the study were 1) to see if the rate of TG-FFA cycling (i.e. FFA reesterification) and the sensitivity properties (see Newsholme and Crabtree, 1976, Biochem. Soc. Symp. 41, 61-109) were affected by various treatments, and 2) to measure the rate of cycling in vivo and assess its contribution to the metabolic rate of an animal.

There are two ways of estimating the rate of TG-FFA cyc...
