We have examined the effects of starvation, normal lab chow and low-fat carbohydrate-rich diet on rat fatty acid synthase (FAS, EC Under each of the dietary conditions the amount of FAS mRNA is different, the most being produced after a low-fat carbohydrate-rich diet. There is also an increase in the amount of FAS protein under the same conditions. To complete the picture we determined the incorporation of [14C]acetate into palmitate as a measure of enzyme activity. Data for cardiac and renal tissue also reflect a dietary influence on FAS. Therefore FAS mRNA, FAS protein and FAS activity are all responsive to dietary-induced signals, and our results suggest a pre-translational regulation.
