It was previously known that lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity in plasma rises after infusion of a fat emulsion. To explore the mechanism we have compared the release of LPL by emulsion to that by heparin. After bolus injections of a fat emulsion (Intralipid) to rats, plasma LPL activity gradually rose 5-fold to a maximum at 6-8 min. During the same time… CONTINUE READING
