Abstract

Hepatic cholesterol synthesis, hepatic cyclic AMP, and portal and peripheral insulin and glucagon levels were investigated in nine dogs and three baboons after complete portacaval shunt. Cholesterol synthesis as measured with acetate incorporation was reduced in both species. Hepatic cyclic AMP increased in dogs. Changes in portal and systemic insulin were inconsistent, but hyperglucagonemia occurred regularly. Diminished hepatic cholesterol synthesis is apparently one factor, although probably not the only one, in the antilipidemic effect of portacaval shunt. This altered cholesterol metabolism may be due to a change in the hormonal environment of the liver caused by portal diversion.
