The lipid content of mitochondria and mitochondrial membranes isolated from foetal, suckling, and adult rat liver mitochondria were compared. In foetal liver mitochondria triacylglycerol made up 26% of the lipids, while in adult rat liver mitochondria the triacylglycerol content was 7%. Esterified fatty acids originating from non-phospholipid sources(More)
The lipolytic activities of mitochondrial and microsomal fractions ('microsomes') isolated from foetal, suckling and adult rat liver were compared. The catabolism of endogenous phospholipids was followed by measuring the loss of phospholipids and the appearance of non-esterified fatty acids and lysophosphatides. The rate of mitochondrial phospholipid(More)
