Acute effect of fatty acids on metabolism and mitochondrial coupling in skeletal muscle.

Biochim. Biophys. Acta 2006 Jan;1757(1):57-66.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

Acute effects of free fatty acids (FFA) were investigated on: (1) glucose oxidation, and UCP-2 and -3 mRNA and protein levels in 1 h incubated rat soleus and extensor digitorium longus (EDL)...oleus and EDL muscles. Palmitic acid increased oxygen consumption by anesthetized rats. These results suggest that long-chain FFA acutely lead to mitochondrial uncoupling in skeletal muscle.
