Effect of BPF on ACAT activity in the liver of hyperlipemic rats. ACAT activity was assayed in microsomes isolated from liver samples of normolipemic as well as in hyperlipemic rats either untreated or treated with BPF (20 mg/Kg daily × 90 days). Activity is reported as nmol [14C] oleoyl-CoA per mg microsomal protein per min. Data are expressed as Mean ± SEM. *: p < 0.05 vs normolipemic. §: p < 0.05 vs hyperlipemic
