We compared the uptake of bound palmitate by rat hepatocytes to its uptake by polyethylene using beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) as the binding protein. The experiments were designed to supply a direct measure of the protein-dependent change in the diffusive conductance of extracellular fluid without determining the diffusion coefficients for free and bound fatty acid or the off-rate constant for protein binding. Rate-limiting dissociation in the stirred phase of extracellular fluid was excluded. The… Expand
