Lipoprotein lipase (LPL)-catalyzed hydrolysis of plasma lipoproteins is a rate-limiting step in the transport of lipids into the peripheral tissues of broiler chickens. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether LPL mRNA expression in adipose tissue is affected by age or nutritional treatments, with a view to reducing fat accumulation in broiler chickens. The study found that chicken LPL mRNA expression in abdominal adipose tissue did not differ significantly between chickens aged… CONTINUE READING
