Effects of insulin and glucose on very low density lipoprotein triglyceride secretion by cultured rat hepatocytes.


The effect of insulin on hepatic triglyceride synthesis and secretion is controversial. Previously, we have described a cell culture system of adult rat hepatocytes that synthesize and secrete very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) triglycerides with small and irreproducible effects of insulin on triglyceride metabolism. To study the primary effects of insulin… (More)
