Intracelluläre Lokalisation von Fettsubstanzen bei experimenteller Leberverfettung

  • 9 Accesses

  • 7 Citations


The intracellular localization of lipids in the rat liver cells has been studied. Fatty degeneration of liver was developed by yellow phosphorus, carbon tetrachloride, ethionine, rare earths, infection, β-diethylaminoethylphenyldiallylacetate (CFT 1201) and a special diet.

In general fatty degeneration has been combined with an increased concentration of lipids in the microsomal fraction. Certain experimental conditions (CFT 1201, rare earths) also produce a high lipide content in the mitochondria.

The significance of these results is discussed.
