Fatty acid metabolism in fasted pregnant ewes
Pethick, D.W. and Lindsay, D.B. (1981) Fatty acid metabolism in fasted pregnant ewes. In: Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia, V6, Sixth Annual Scientific Meeting, November-December, Canberra, ACT, Australia p. 105.
The quantitative significance of ketone bodies and nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) to the energy metabolism of fasted pregnant ewes is poorly understood. Metabolism of specific substrates can be determined in the whole animal by combining the techniques of isotope dilution and open circuit calorimetry (see Linzell and Annison 1975) . This report summarises the results obtained from the measurement of NEFA and ketone body metabolism in fasted pregnant ewes.
