  • This study was conducted to confirm that medium chain triglyceride (MCT) feeding itself would increase hepatic lipogenic enzyme activity without causing a lack of essential fatty acids (EFA) in the liver. Male weaning rats were fed for 11 weeks on diets containing 2% corn oil and 13% various fats: MCT, corn oil, tripalmitin or beef tallow, respectively. MCT feeding was clearly shown to increase the activities of fatty acid synthetase (FAS) and malic enzyme (ME) in the liver. Rats weighing 170 g… CONTINUE READING
