Fatty acid oxidation in hepatic peroxisomes and mitochondria after treatment of rats with di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate.


Rats were fed a diet containing di(2-ethylhexyl)-phthalate, which increases the number of peroxisomes and mitochondria in the liver. This proliferation does not change the ratio of phospholipid to protein in mitochondria or microsomes, but causes certain changes in the fatty acid composition of the phospholipids. The highest rates of peroxisomal and… (More)
