The effect of vasopressin on the short-term regulation of fatty acid synthesis was studied in isolated hepatocytes from rats fed ad libitum. Vasopressin stimulates fatty acid synthesis by 30-110%. This increase is comparable with that obtained with insulin. Angiotensin also stimulates fatty acid synthesis, whereas phenylephrine does not. The dose-response… CONTINUE READING
