Differences in biochemical and hormone profiles between two strains of rats provide insights into the relationships between insulin response, inositol phosphoglycans and lipid metabolism in adipose tissue. The results suggest the apparent anomaly of a higher rate of lipogenesis and response to insulin with a lower fat pad weight in the Charles River vs. Harlan Olac group relates to: (i) enzyme pre-programming with IPG-A, (ii) faster turnover of lipid, (iii) effects of leptin and cAMP.
