Abstract:

Preli inary evidence was report i dicating that lipogenesis may be regulated to a great extent by the generation of an inhibitor. Part of the basis for this conclusion was the finding th t, when homogenates from fed rats living at 25 C were separated into a particle-free supernatant fraction by centrifugation at 105,000 x g for 1 hour, the resulting superna nt had less lipogenic activity than the whole homogenate itself. Experiments were carri d out with liver homogenate from cold-fasted rats, and the opposi e as tru --the supernatant was considerably more active in lipogenesis than the whole homogenate itself.
