Hepatic fatty acid metabolism in the rat is sexually differentiated. Rates of esterification by the liver of fatty acid into triglyceride and other esterification products (phospholipid, diglyceride, cholesteryl esters) are higher in the female than in the male. There is evidence to suggest that GH feminizes other hepatic systems that exhibit sexual dimorphism, including hepatic steroid metabolism, PRL receptors, and estrogen binding. To investigate the role of GH in maintenance of the high… CONTINUE READING
