Effects of volatile fatty acids on propionate metabolism and gluconeogenesis in caprine hepatocytes.


Isolated caprine hepatocytes were incubated with fatty acids of various chain lengths. Short-chain fatty acids effects on rates of gluconeogenesis and oxidation from [2-14C]propionate were determined. Additions of glucose (2.5 mM) had no effect on hepatic [2-14C]propionate metabolism in the presence and absence of amino acids. A complete mixture of amino… (More)
