  • Two inhibitors of fatty acid oxidation, 2-bromopalmitic acid (Br-C16) and 4-bromocrotonic acid (Br-C4) were examined for their effect on lipolysis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Both agents inhibited in a dose-dependent manner the rate of oxidation of exogenously added [1-1 4 C] palmitate with similar time-courses, reaching a plateau at 3-9 h. While Br-C16 at 50 μM and 100 μM inhibited palmitate...
