Interstitial glycerol concentration in human skeletal muscle and adipose tissue is close to the concentration in blood.
1. The suggestion that the interstitial glycerol concentration in both adipose tissue and skeletal muscle is around 3 mmol/I (Maggs DG, Jacob R, Rife F, et al. J Clin Invest 1995; 96: 370-7), rather than close to the blood concentration as previously supposed, was tested by independent methods. 2. Free glycerol was infused, as part of a triacylglycerol emulsion, into six normal subjects and the arteriovenous difference for glycerol across the forearm was measured. In addition the relative int...Expand abstract
