Adrenaline and cyclic 3,5-AMP induced changes in serum free fatty acid, lipoprotein and acetate-1-C14 uptake by lipoprotein lipid of rhesus monkeys
NK Kapoor, S Nityanand
Administration of adrenaline and cyclic 3'. 5'-adenosine monophosphate to rhesus monkeys caused a significant increase of serum free fatty acids, low density lipoproteins (() and high density lipoproteins (() without any marked change in very low density lipoproteins (pre (). Uptake of acetate-1-C14, into total lipid of lipoprotein fractions was also found to be increased by about two fold in experimental animals. The effect on serum FFA. Lipoproteins and labelled acetate uptake into lipoproteins was found to be more with adrenaline than cyclic AMP. It is likely that initial rise in free fatty acid may be causing a" increase in lipoproteins and further the regulatory role of the hormones on biosynthesis of lipids and enzymes has been discussed.
