The limiting role of diacylglycerol acyltransferase with respect to triacylglycerol synthesis in cultured rat hepatocytes was evaluated by following the inhibition of the overall synthetic flux by 2-bromooctanoate acting as an inhibitor of the diacylglycerol acyltransferase step. The flux-control coefficient of diacylglycerol acyltransferase in intact cultured hepatocytes amounted to 0.76 in the presence of saturating glycerol and either palmitate or oleate as the fatty acyl substrates. The flux-control coefficient of diacylglycerol acyltransferase in lysolecithin-permeabilized cultured hepatocytes amounted to 0.80 and 0.99 in the presence of saturating glycerol 3-phosphate and either palmitate or oleate as the fatty acyl substrate, respectively. Hence, triacylglycerol synthesis in liver cells under the experimental conditions employed is rate-limited by the diacylglycerol acyltransferase.
