Tissue-specific regulation of guinea pig lipoprotein lipase; effects of nutritional state and of tumor necrosis factor on mRNA levels in adipose tissue, heart and liver.

Levels of mRNA for lipoprotein lipase (LPL) in guinea pig epididymal adipose tissue, heart and liver were determined by dot blot analysis of total RNA using a cDNA probe complementary to the coding region, and compared to the LPL activity. For adipose tissue we also measured the incorporation of radioactivity into immunoprecipitable LPL after pulse-labeling… CONTINUE READING
