Abstract

Rainbow trout were used to evaluate the activation of adipose tissue lipolysis in fish. Triacylglycerol lipase, isolated and partially purified from adipose tissue, was activated up to 137% in the presence of cAMP, ATP, and MgCl2. Activation of the adipose tissue triacylglycerol lipase enzyme was reversible. Activation of the adipose tissue triacylglycerol lipase resulted in cAMP-dependent phosphorylation of the enzyme.
