The high-arctic Svalbard reindeer (SR) deposit great amounts of body fat in autumn for subsequent use during winter when food is often in short supply. Captive SR and, for comparative reasons, the sub-arctic Norwegian reindeer (NR) were offered 15% of their ad libitum food intake during a 21-day period in September/October and its effect on fat metabolism was investigated. Plasma free fatty acids (FFA), glycerol, glucose, insulin and urea as well as lipogenic and lipolytic activity of isolated… CONTINUE READING
