Free fatty acid storage in human visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue: role of adipocyte proteins.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Because direct adipose tissue free fatty acid (FFA) storage may contribute to body fat distribution, we measured FFA (palmitate) storage rates and fatty acid (FA) storage enzymes/proteins in omental and abdominal subcutaneous fat. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Elective surgery patients received a bolus of [1-(14)C]palmitate followed by omental and… (More)
