Rates of hepatic lipogenesis and secretion of plasma triglyceride-rich lipoproteins in 6- to 7-wk-old broiler chickens were similar to the overall rate of fat deposition in these birds, although approximately 20% of [14C]-labeled VLDL was oxidized to CO2 within 8 h. Only 6-7% of VLDL and portomicron triglyceride was taken up by the abdominal fat pad, but this proportion of total triglyceride flux could account for about 80-85% of the total fatty acids accumulating in that depot. The rate of… CONTINUE READING
