In order to elucidate the direct effect of glucose on lipolysis in isolated rat adipocytes, cells were incubated in a buffer with different concentrations of this sugar: 2, 8 or 16 mmol/l. The increase in glucose concentration from 2 mmol/l to 8 or 16 mmol/l enhanced basal lipolysis by 30% and 47%, respectively. Epinephrine-induced lipolysis (1 micromol/l… CONTINUE READING
