Regulation of fatty acid delivery in vivo.

Abstract:

Adipose tissue triacylglycerol (TG) constitutes by far the largest energy store in the body. In order for this TG to be used as a substrate for oxidative metabolism, it has to be exported from adipose tissue and transported to the tissues where it will be used. Following hydrolysis of stored TG, non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) leave the adipocyte and enter the plasma. Unlike tissues such as skeletal muscle which extract plasma NEFA, in adipose tissue the flow of fatty acids across the cell ...
