Interstitial transudate of isolated isometrically working perfused rat hearts was analyzed to investigate fatty acid (FA) release and transfer across the capillary wall. Unsaturated FA were released under certain conditions. Lowering medium FA (16:0) with constant or varying FA/A-ratio (A: albumin) decreased interstitial FA-concentration down to 17% of arterial FA-concentration. This was accompanied by reduced uptake-rate. Transcapillary diffusion-resistance, unless markedly altering, cannot be… CONTINUE READING
