Effects of diets containing medium-chain and long-chain triacylglycerols in the genetically obese Zucker fa/fa rat. Composition of fatty acids and triacylglycerols of the liver and adipose tissues



Effects of diets containing medium-chain and long-chain triacylglycerols in the genetically obese Zucker fa/fa rat. Composition of fatty acids and triacylglycerols of the liver and adipose tissues



Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism 27(5): 404-414



The effects of a hyperlipidic diet containing medium-chain triacylglycerols (MCT) or long-chain triacylglycerols (LCT) and a control diet on the lipid composition of liver and adipose tissue in the Zucker fa/fa and Fa/- rat are compared. The weights of liver and adipose tissues of the rats fed the MCT diet are little different from those of the two other groups, but they are always higher in obese rats than in lean rats. After feeding the MCT diet, the amounts of the constituent octanoic and decanoic acids in liver and adipose tissues are higher in the fa/fa rat than in the Fa/- rat. The rate of lipogenesis in liver and adipose tissues of the obese rat fed the MCT diet remains high.
