Lipolysis in human adipose tissue (author's transl)

Wiener klinische Wochenschrift
H J LischS Sailer


Lipolytic activity was measured under different conditions in isolated fat cells and homogenates of human adipose tissue of the greater omentum. It was demonstrated that lipolysis took place in isolated fat cells at an optimum pH of 7.4 and was markedly stimulated by noradrenaline, but not by blood serum. By contrast lipolysis was significantly stimulated by blood serum, but not by noradrenaline, in homogenates of adipose tissue. Serum-stimulated lipolysis exhibited optimum activity at pH 8 and was inhibited by 1M sodium chloride. It is concluded that lipolytic activity in isolated fat cells can mainly be ascribed to the action of hormone-sensitive lipase, whereas lipolysis in homogenates of adipose tissue in the presence of serum is mostly regulated by lipoprotein lipase.

ApoE, Lipids & Cholesterol

Serum cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (APOB)-containing lipoproteins (very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), immediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein A (LPA)) and the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio are all connected in diseases. Here is the latest research.
