Mitochondria obtained from hyperthyroid rabbit liver contained an approximately 4-fold greater amount of free fatty acids (FFA) than preparations from the control animals. The temperature dependence of FFA accumulation (29--38 degrees C) showed that the activation energy of mitochondrial lipid hydrolysis for control and experimental animals was 7 kcal/mole and 29 kcal/mole, respectively. The mitochondria were kept at 3 degrees C for 48 h. During this period there was an accumulation of fatty… CONTINUE READING
