Sex differences in intracellular fatty acid transport: role of cytoplasmic binding proteins.

Abstract

Female liver clears long-chain fatty acids from plasma more rapidly than male liver, and yet the basis for this sex difference is poorly understood. We tested the hypothesis that cytosolic fatty acid binding protein (FABP), which is more concentrated in female liver, may enhance fatty acid utilization by increasing the rate of transport through the… (More)
