Determinants of VLDL-triglycerides production

Abstract:

Purpose of Review: Plasma free fatty acids (FFA) are major substrates for hepatic VLDL-triglycerides (VLDL-TG) production. In addition, it is a common belief that VLDL-TG production is a substrate driven process primarily determined by systemic FFA delivery. This review summarizes recent research of our understanding of the regulation of VLDL-TG production. Recent Findings: Recent studies have shown that increasing FFA flux is not inevitably associated with increased VLDL-TG production. Exerc...
