Hepatic phosphatidylcholine synthesis in deficiency of lysine and threonine: effect of malathion.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Rats fed on a rice diet deficient in lysine and threonine showed increased activities of CDP-Choline pathway enzymes and incorporation of (methyl-3H)-choline into hepatic microsomal phosphatidylcholine, compared to rats fed on the same diet supplemented with lysine and threonine. However, the amount of microsomal phosphatidylcholine was significantly decreased in rats fed a deficient rice diet. These results suggest an enhanced phosphatidylcholine catabolism in rats fed on a rice diet deficient in lysine and threonine. Malathion administration reduced the amount of phosphatidylcholine in all the groups.
