Effect of castration and anatomical site on the plasma membrane structure and the activities of adenylate cyclase and 5'-nucleotidase in pig adipocytes.


The effects of castration on fat cell plasma membrane structure and enzyme activities (adenylate cyclase and 5'-nucleotidase) were studied in pig adipose tissues in two fat deposits (subcutaneous and perirenal). Castration induced a fat cell enlargement in both tissues. Membrane cholesterol content was reduced and fluidity was increased in perirenal fat… (More)
