Lipid synthesis in permeabilized cultured rat hepatocytes.

Abstract

Hepatic lipid synthesis was verified and studied in lysolecithin-permeabilized cultured rat hepatocytes and compared to that of intact liver cells. Triacylglycerol synthesis in permeabilized cells incubated in the presence of glycerol 3-phosphate and long chain fatty acids approached that of intact hepatocytes. Similarly, phosphatidylcholine synthesis in… (More)
