Studies have been conducted on the uptake and metabolism of unesterified fatty acid, free glycerol and 1-hexadecyl glyceryl ether by rat cardiac myocytes, and of fatty acid, intact triglyceride and the glyceryl ether by perfused rat hearts. Cardiac myocytes efficiently extracted, oxidized and esterified oleic acid, but demonstrated little ability to utilize free glycerol. Although the glyceryl ether was efficiently extracted by myocytes, it was neither hydrolyzed or esterified. The perfused… CONTINUE READING
