Fatty acid metabolism of ovine skeletal muscle at rest and during exercise
Pethick, D.W. (1982) Fatty acid metabolism of ovine skeletal muscle at rest and during exercise. In: Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia, V7, Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia, V7, Seventh Annual Scientific Meeting, November-December, Canberra, ACT, Australia p. 210.
Traditionally, plasma nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) are considered a predominant fuel for skeletal muscle in non-ruminant animals (Zierler 1976). However, the significance of plasma NEFA as a fuel for ovine skeletal muscle is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the contribution of plasma NEFA to the energy metabolism of ovine skeletal muscle.
