Hepatic lipase activity increases after liver denervation in the rat

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We have investigated the effects of hilar denervation of rat liver upon the activity of hepatic lipase determined in tissue extracts. Denervated animals had an enzyme activity of 7.89 +/- 0.37 mU/mg protein, compared to 6.45 +/- 0.43 in sham-operated controls (mean +/- S.E.; P less than 0.05). We conclude that hepatic innervation may contribute to the regulation of hepatic lipase activity.
