The effect of insulin on the synthesis of free fatty acids from glucose in the skeletal and heart muscles of chicken is examined. 10 min after glucose-(U-14C) administration, labeled free fatty acids (FFA) appeared in both skeletal and heart muscles. 0.75 IU of insulin kg−1 b. wt significantly increased the labeled FFA at the 30, 60 and 120 min intervals, with a maximum at 60 min.
