Fasting-induced changes in prostaglandin binding in isolated hepatocytes and liver plasma membranes.


The effects of fasting on hepatic prostaglandin E (PGE) receptor characteristics were studied in Sprague-Dawley rats. Plasma membranes were isolated from liver homogenates of animals after 0, 12, 18, 24, and 48 h of fasting.
