Triacylglycerol (TAG) stored in adipose tissue can be rapidly mobilized by the hydrolytic action of lipases, with the release of fatty acids (FA) that are used by other tissues during times of energy deprivation. Unlike synthesis of TAG, which occurs not only in adipose tissue but also in other tissues such as liver for VLDL formation, hydrolysis of TAG, lipolysis, predominantly occurs in adipose tissue. Until recently, hormone sensitive lipase (HSL) was considered to be the key rate-limiting… CONTINUE READING
