Lipid transport in the hypothyroid rat as reflected by the serum concentrations of free fatty acids, lipoproteins, lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase and lipoprotein lipase activity in adipose tissue.

Abstract

An experimental model was explored for the study of the effect of thyroid hormone on lipid transport and metabolism in the rat. The development of the hypothyroid state was accompanied by an early decrease in free fatty acids (FFA) followed by an increase in the level of cholesterol and a decrease in triglyceride concentration. Simultaneously, the adipose… (More)
