Mice deficient in acyl-CoA:diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1), a key enzyme in triacylglycerol (TG) biosynthesis, are resistant to high-fat (HF) diet-induced hepatic steatosis and obesity. DGAT1-deficient (Dgat1-/-) mice have no defect in quantitative absorption of dietary fat; however, they have abnormally high levels of TG stored in the cytoplasm of enterocytes, and they have a reduced postprandial triglyceridemic response. We generated mice expressing DGAT1 only in the intestine… CONTINUE READING
