Abstract

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.
