The Lipoprotein Lipase Activity of Brown Adipose Tissue during Early Post-Natal Development of the Normal and Hypothyroid Rat.

LP lipase activity was maximal during the perinatal period and decreased later, being practically undetectable in one month old control animals; in contrast, LP lipase activity was still present in cretin rats at this age

Scholarcy highlights

  • LP lipase activity was maximal during the perinatal period and decreased later, being practically undetectable in one month old control animals; in contrast, LP lipase activity was still present in cretin rats at this age
  • The effects of several forms of treatment were tested in weaned rats: a high-fat diet was not able to maintain the high LP lipase activity of suckling rats, but the activity was high if the animals were bred at a cold temperature
  • Thyroxine injections had no effect. These results are discussed in terms of the possible factors regulating the LP lipase activity in BAT
