Triglyceride-rich lipoproteins from adult rat plasma were labelled in vivo with 3H in the esterified fatty acids and 14C in the labelled glyceride glycerol of neutral lipids by injecting i.v. sodium 9-10 (n)-[3H] palmitate and [U-14C] glycerol, after which the prelabelled lipoproteins were purified by ultracentrifugation and dialysis. The lipoproteins were incubated in vitro, in the presence or not of heparin, with pieces of epididymal fat pads or isolated adipocytes from fed rats. The disappearance of both [3H]- and [14C] lipids from the media was greater when incubations were performed with adipocytes than with fat-pad pieces and it increased with heparin in both preparations. More 3H-label than 14C was found in the tissue lipids, a higher percentage being present in adipocytes than in fat-pad pieces, and the amount of label in tissue lipids was always enhanced by heparin. Some 14C-label appeared as esterified fatty acids in both tissue preparations and it also was enhanced by the presence of heparin. These findings are in agreement with the recognized influence of heparin on the release of lipoprotein lipase and show the direct relationship between heparin action and tissue ability to take up products of lipoprotein triglyceride breakdown. They also demonstrate the ability of adipose tissue to metabolize glycerol coming from the hydrolysis of lipoprotein glycerides.
