Hormonal regulation of lipogenic enzymes in chick embryo hepatocytes in culture. Thyroid hormone and glucagon regulate malic enzyme mRNA level at post-transcriptional steps.


Mechanisms involved in stimulation of the synthesis of malic enzyme by insulin and triiodothyronine and in inhibition of synthesis by glucagon have been investigated by assessing levels and rates of synthesis of malic enzyme mRNA in chick embryo hepatocytes in culture. Insulin alone had no effect on the level of malic enzyme mRNA, whereas triiodothyronine… (More)
