Lipolysis was studied in subcutaneous fat from obese and lean individuals. Glycerol was released at similar rates using pieces of fat weighing 40 or 100 mg. Isolated fat cells offered no advantage over segments of fat for the study of lipolysis. The lipolytic effects of epinephrine and norepinephrine were potentiated by phentolamine (an α-adrenergic blocking drug) and blocked by propranolol (a β-adrenergic blocking drug). Isoproterenol-stimulated lipolysis was also blocked by propranolol but was not potentiated by phentolamine. Thyrotrophin and a lipid-mobilizing factor from human pituitaries were lipolytic in vitro. Human growth hormone with or without dexamethasone had no effect on lipolysis.
EJE is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
The two types of article metrics we measure are (i) more traditional full-text views and pdf downloads, and (ii) Altmetric data, which shows the wider impact of articles in a range of non-traditional sources, such as social media.
