Dispersed epithelial cells from lactating bovine and goat mammary glands incorporated acetate into all fatty acids (C4 to C16) that were incorporated into mainly triacylglycerols. The cells secreted free fatty acids only into the incubation medium, and this secretion was dependent on the concentration of albumin and the type and amount of exogenous fatty(More)
Acyl-CoA-binding protein (ACBP) was purified from rat liver. The Mr was determined as 9932 +/- 10 by mass spectrometry and calculated as 9937.8 from the sequence. The protein binds acyl-CoA esters (C8-C16) with high affinity, but was unable to bind fatty acids. ACBP was found mainly (86%) in the soluble fraction, and the concentration was highest in liver,(More)
Goat mammary-gland microsomal fraction by itself induces synthesis of medium-chain-length fatty acids by goat mammary fatty acid synthetase and incorporates short- and medium-chain fatty acids into triacylglycerol. Addition of ATP in the absence or presence of Mg2+ totally inhibits triacylglycerol synthesis from short- and medium-chain fatty acids, and(More)
A study of the effect of aromatic substitution on D1 and D2 affinity in a series of previously reported trans-1-piperazino-3-phenylindans shows similar structure-activity relationships for the two receptor sites. 6-Substituted derivatives have affinity for both receptors, and 6-chloro-or 6-fluoro-substituted derivatives show preference for D1 receptors. D1(More)
We investigated the effect of exogenously added fatty acids on de novo synthesis of individual fatty acids and their incorporation into triacylglycerols by dispersed lactating ruminant mammary gland epithelial cells. Palmitate addition strongly stimulated synthesis and incorporation of butyrate and, to a smaller extent, palmitate synthesis and(More)
Bovine liver was shown to contain a hitherto undescribed medium-chain acyl-CoA-binding protein. The protein co-purifies with fatty-acid-binding proteins, but was, unlike these proteins, unable to bind fatty acids. The protein induced synthesis of medium-chain acyl-CoA esters on incubation with goat mammary-gland fatty acid synthetase. The possible function(More)
The induction of acyl-CoA-binding protein (ACBP) and ACBP mRNA was investigated in 3T3-L1 cells during growth and insulin-induced differentiation. The level of ACBP relative to both total soluble protein and DNA increased during insulin-stimulated conversion of 3T3-L1 cells from preadipocytes into fully developed adipocytes. So did the total rate of(More)
1. The fatty acid composition of the triglyceride fraction of mink milk sampled during mid-lactation (day 28 post partum) from two nursing mink was compared to that of plasma samples and to the fatty acid composition of the feed rations used. 2. Chemical analysis of the triglyceride composition of mink milk demonstrated only minute concentrations of fatty(More)
A number of 3-isoxazolol bioisosteres, 7a-i, of (S)-glutamic acid (Glu), in which the methyl group of (RS)-2-amino-3-(3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazol-4-yl)propionic acid (AMPA, 1) was replaced by different 5-membered heterocyclic rings, were synthesized. Comparative in vitro pharmacological studies on this series of AMPA analogues were performed using receptor(More)
The method now described for preparation of dispersed lactating goat mammary-gland cells gives a high yield of morphologically and functionally normal mammary cells. The cells synthesize specific goat milk fatty acids in the right proportions, and they respond to hormones by increased protein synthesis. The cells can be frozen and thawed without losing the(More)
