In order to evaluate the relative importance of groups of tissues containing lipoprotein lipase (LPL) in the removal of serum triacylglycerols during development, LPL activity was determined in cardiac and skeletal muscle, brown (BAT) and white adipose tissue (WAT), lung and kidney of rats aged 0-60 days, either fed or fasted for 6 h. On fasting, LPL activity did not change in lung and kidney, decreased in WAT except at 14 days and to a lesser extent in BAT, whereas muscle LPL decreased at 0, 3… CONTINUE READING
