The relationship of developing obesity and hyperinsulinaemia to fatty acid synthesis in whole body and major tissues has been studied in two strains of genetically obese (ob/ob) mice using in vivo incorporation of 3H2O into fatty acids. Rates of fatty acid synthesis were not increased in pre-weaning C57BL/6J obese mice even though hyperinsulinaemia and… CONTINUE READING
