The role of bile acids on the plasma lipids in chicks given diets containing medium chain triacylglycerol
R. T. Mabayo, M. Furuse, C-P Yang, J. Okumura
The effects of the prevention of micelle formation and bile acid reabsorption, by using cholestyramine (CHOLN), a bile acid binding polymer, on the plasma lipid of Single Comb White Leghorn male chicks given diets containing medium chain triacylglycerol (MCT) and long chain triacylglycerol (LCT) were investigated. Corn oil and glyceryl tricaprylate were used as LCT and MCT sources, respectively. Plasma HDL cholesterol was reduced by CHOLN in all treatments. Plasma LDL cholesterol was reduced by CHOLN in chicks given LCT diet but not in MCT diet which could be accounted to the reduced plasma total cholesterol in LCT diet with CHOLN. It is concluded that bile acid binding does not alter the cholesteremic effect of MCT in the plasma of chicks.
