The Effects of Fasting and Refeeding on in Vitro Lipogenesis and Glycogen Synthesis from U-14C-Glucose in the Rat Aorta
Tissues of animals fasted for two to three days and subsequently refed a high carbohydrate diet exhibit an extremely high capacity for lipogenesis from non-fat precursors. This adaptive hyperlipogenesis of refeeding has been studied extensively in adipose tissue and liver and is associated with a number of striking changes in enzyme profiles. Increased circulating levels of insulin are considered to play a major role in this phenomenon.
