Induction of fatty liver in cows by ethionine administration and concomitant decreases of serum apolipoproteins B-100 and A-I concentrations.

Abstract

Ethionine, an analogue of methionine, induces fatty liver in rats by inhibiting protein synthesis, including that of apolipoproteins in liver. Ethionine was administered to cows to elucidate the participation in fatty liver development of impaired triglyceride secretion from liver attributable to decreased apolipoprotein synthesis. The administration… (More)
