Hypertriglyceridemia associated with decreased post-heparin plasma hepatic triglyceride lipase activity in hypoxic rats.

Exposure of sated rats to 45% N2 in air for 5h increased serum triglyceride levels by 212% over the levels in normoxic rats. This increase in triglyceride levels was accompanied by a decrease in plasma triglyceride hydrolase activity after intravenous injection of heparin. Further fractionation of the activity by inhibition of lipoprotein lipase indicated… CONTINUE READING
