Figure 3

The effect of high sucrose consumption on indicators of hepatic DNL. Newly synthesized palmitic, stearic and oleic acid (expressed as concentration) at each time point in the postprandial period. A) Plasma newly synthesized palmitic acid, normalized to baseline natural enrichment. The proportion and absolute concentration of newly synthesized palmitic acid was higher at each time point measured in the postprandial period. B) Plasma newly synthesized stearic acid, normalized to baseline natural enrichment. The proportion and absolute concentration of newly synthesized stearic acid was higher at each time point measured in the postprandial period. C) Plasma newly synthesized oleic acid, normalized to baseline natural enrichment. The proportion and absolute concentration of newly synthesized oleic acid was higher at each time point measured in the postprandial period. Data are expressed as means ± SEM; n = 6. * indicates p < 0.036 at each time point for High Sucrose versus Control.
