Abstract

Essential fatty acid (EFA) -deficient rats showed a higher sensitivity to lipolytic agents than control animals. Norepinephrine released more free fatty acid in vivo and in vitro, both from adipose tissue slices and isolated fat cells. Similarly, theophylline and cyclic 3′, 5′ AMP (dibutyryl ester) were more active on EFA-deficient fat cells than on control cells. Also, the combination of norepinephrine with theophylline was more effective in EFA-deficient fat cells. PGE1 was able to inhibit the lipolytic effect of norepinephrine on EFA-deficient fat cells as well as on controls. The results are discussed with reference to the possible physiological role of EFA as precursors of prostaglandins.
