Lipolysis and Reesterification

Adipose Tissue Interstitial Space

Adipocytes are highly differentiated cells specialized in handling large quantities of long-chain FA Fig. 11.1 . During lipid storage in the fed state, FA are released by LPL bound to the endothelial capillary wall into the blood from chylomicrons and lipoproteins assembled and secreted by intestinal and liver cells, respectively step 1 , or from albumin, move through the endothelium via passage through tight junctions or endothelial cells step 2 , bind to the outer leaflet of the plasma...
