Hepatocytes from obese and lean Zucker rats adapted to a control (C) or a high-fat (HF) diet were prepared for the study of fatty acid (FA) uptake, partition between oxidation and esterification, and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) production. A first 2-h kinetic study showed higher oleate uptake on a C diet by obese rat cells and an almost exclusive(More)
The effect of three calcium antagonists on the synthesis of prostacyclin (PGI2, assayed as 6-Keto-PGF1 alpha) and PGE2 by cultured rat cardiac myocytes and fibroblasts was investigated. In myocytes only, bepridil, diltiazem and verapamil (10(-9) to 10(-7) M) stimulated PGs synthesis by two- to three-fold, dose-dependently. At a concentration of 10(-6) or(More)
Triacylglycerol (TG) stored in cytoplasmic lipid droplets of hepatocytes was labeled by in vivo [1-(14)C]oleic acid injection to study the effect of a high-fat diet on its incorporation into very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL). Compared with the control diet, hepatocytes of fat-fed rats 1) contained 7.6 times more cytoplasmic (floating fat) TG and 1.9(More)
The effect of a high-protein (HP) diet on hepatic very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) secretion was studied in obese and lean Zucker rats. With the control (C) diet, isolated hepatocytes from obese as compared with lean rats displayed higher uptake of [1-14C]oleate 0.7 mmol/L, 95% of which was esterified to glycerolipids; greater oleate incorporation into(More)
Young male rats, Wistar CF strain, weighing about 100 g, were fed during 14 days with a well-balanced diet, but containing either 275 p.p.m. nabame, either 600 p.p.m. thirame or 3 600 p.p.m. zinebe. The animals given the non-contaminated diet were the controls. On the evening before the experiment, they were all fasted and some of them, forced to walk(More)
