Forms of lipoprotein lipase in rat tissues: in adipose tissue the proportion of inactive lipase increases on fasting.


Previous studies have shown that the ratio of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) catalytic activity to LPL mass in tissues differs in different conditions, but it is not clear whether this occurs by a change in the catalytic efficiency of the LPL molecules, or because of a shift in the relation between active and inactive forms of the enzyme. To explore this, we have… (More)
