Abstract:

The effect of carbohydrates on the oxidation of various fatty acids was studied in liver slices from normal and cold-fasted rats. The resulting evidence indicates that, while carbohydrate metabolism appears to be necessary for an optimal rate of fatty acid oxidation, it apparently is not a function of the sparking action of oxalacetate or other Krebs cycle intermediates.
