Abstract:
Four lipogenic enzymes were measured in liver and adipose tissues of 2-, 6-, 18- and 27-month-old male Fischer 344 rats. Adipose ATP-citrate lyase (EC 4.1.3.8; ATP-CL) activity increased 1.8-fold between 2 and 6 months of age. Hepatic ATP-CL activity underwent an overall 84% reduction between 2 and 27 months of age with maximum activity at 18 months. Adipose tissue fatty acid synthase (FAS) activity exhibited a linear 54% reduction between 2 and 27 months of age; while hepatic FAS activity declined, biphasically, to 14.2 IU/g protein by 27 months. Opposing age-related patterns of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.49; G6PD) activity were observed in adipose tissue and liver. Adipose activity decreased between 2 and 6 months to 132.9 IU/g protein, and was unchanged thereafter; whereas liver G6PD activity increased to a maximum of 149.0 IU/g protein at 27 months. Malic enzyme (EC 1.1.1.40; ME) activity decreased between 2 and 6 months of age in both tissues. These data suggest diminished lipogenic capacity with age.
