The specificity of triglyceride synthesis from diglycerides in chicken adipose tissue.

The evidence presently available indicates that the final step in the synthesis of triglycerides in liver is the esterification of an Q: ,/3-diglyceride by an activated fatty acid (I, 2). Weiss, Kennedy, and Kiyasu (1, 3) have demonstrated this esterification reaction in a particulate preparation of chicken liver with palmityl coenzyme A and various… (More)
