The purpose of this study was to examine effects of dietary triacylglycerols on beta-carotene 15,15'-dioxygenase (EC 1.13.11.21) activity and cellular retinol-binding protein [CRBP (II)] in rats. Six groups of eight rats (7-wk old) were fed one of the following diets: standard (STD; 2.5% soybean oil), saturated (SFA; 15% hydrogenated soybean oil), monounsaturated (MUFA; 15% olive oil), polyunsaturated (PUFA; 15% soybean oil) or clofibrate (CLF; 2.5% soybean oil + 0.2% clofibrate) for 3 wk.
