Hepatic beta-hydroxy-beta-methylglutaryl CoA (HMG-CoA) reductase, cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase (7 alpha-hyd), and fatty acid synthetase (FAS) activities and cholesterol levels were determined in chicks fed isonitrogenous corn- and high-protein barley flour (HPBF) based diets. HMG-CoA reductase (-27%), 7 alpha-hyd (-30%), and serum cholesterol (-13%) were… CONTINUE READING
