The metabolism of lipids in mouse pancreatic islets. The biosynthesis of triacylglycerols and phospholipids.


The rate of incorporation of [U-14C]glucose and [u-14C]palmitate into the lipids of the pancreatic islets of obese-hyperglycaemic mice was examined. The following main observations were made. 1. Both glucose and palmitate were incorporated into lipids in the islets. The fraction of glucose utilized for lipid biosynthesis was calculated to be 3-6% of that… (More)
