Lymphatic transport of a physical mixture of medium- and long-chain TAG in rats

, : Lymphatic transport of a physical mixture of medium- and long-chain TAG in rats. Lipids 41(1): 63-66

Lymphatic transport of a mixture of medium-chain TAG (MCT) and long-chain TAG (LCT) was studied in lymph-cannulated rats. Animals were administered a test emulsion containing either triolein, tricaprylin, or a 1:1 mixture of triolein and tricaprylin, and the lymph was collected for 24 h. The lymphatic recovery rate of medium-chain FA (MCFA) was significantly higher in rats given the TAG mixture than in those given MCT alone. The lymphatic recovery rate of long-chain FA (LCFA) also was significantly higher in rats given the TAG mixture than in those given LCT alone. No TAG containing three MCFA (i.e., MCT) was detected, and 37.7% of TAG containing one or two MCFA was detected in the lymph TAG when rats were given the TAG mixture. These results indicate that lymphatic transport of MCFA and LCFA can be modified by the combination of MCT and LCT.

Leptin, a cytokine secreted by adipose tissue, has been implicated in the insulin resistance associated with obesity. Here we examined the acute influence of leptin at physiological (10 ng/ml) and supraphysiological (50 ng/ml and 100 ng/ml) concen...
