To investigate the changes of lipid synthesis in adipose tissue; radioactive acetic acid was administered to weaned rat; fed with 12%-lipid diet or 45% butter of diet.
After 8 weeks of feeding; growth of 12%-normal lipid diet group was slightly more decreased than that of 4596 bulter fat diet group. Lipid content in abdominal adipose tissue was higher in high lipid diet group than control group.
Rate of lipid biosynthesis in liver was slowly decrdased as aging in both group; on the othorhand; in adipose tissue the rate of lipid biosynthesis revealed maximum value at 12th weeks after birth; thereafter decreased significantly.
These findings are compatible with the view that the rate of lipid biosynthesis in both liver and adipose tissue decreases slowly as aging.
