Palmitate and stearate kinetics in the rat during sepsis and trauma.

Abstract

Kinetics of plasma free palmitate and stearate were measured in control and septic-traumatized rats to determine the contribution plasma free fatty acids make to increased resting energy expenditure. Measurements were made at 24 hr after insult using a primed, 4-hr continuous infusion of selected (1-14C) fatty acid. The plasma concentration of palmitate was… (More)
