Figure 4

Basal and insulin-stimulated rates of acetate (Panel A) and glucose (Panel B) incorporation in fatty acids of triacylglycerol and maximal activities of ATP citrate lyase (ACL, Panel C), fatty acid synthase (FAS, Panel D) and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH, Panel E), in differentiated 3 T3-L1 cells treated for 24 h with either vehicle, palmitic acid (16:0, 200 μM) or palmitoleic acid (16:1n7, 200 μM). Results are means ± SE (n = 6-8/group). *P < 0.05 vs. vehicle and #P < 0.05 vs. 16:0.
