Recombinant human tumor necrosis factor does not inhibit lipoprotein lipase in primary cultures of isolated human adipocytes.


Previous studies have demonstrated that cachectin/tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibits lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity in cultures of 3T3-L1 cells. To determine whether TNF also inhibits LPL in human adipocytes, primary cultures of isolated human adipocytes were exposed to a spectrum of concentrations of recombinant human TNF. TNF concentrations up to… (More)
