Ethynyl-estradiol was shown to decrease the rate of biosynthesis of saturated, mono-, di-, tri- and tetraenic fatty acids in liver tissue and to increase the esterification of the newly synthesized fatty acids into triglycerides and phospholipids. The most distinct activation of esterification was found, if newly synthesized saturated fatty acids changed to triglycerides and tetraenic acids--into phospholipids. Ethynyl-estradiol stimulated also in liver tissue the esterification of exogenous saturated and unsaturated fatty acids into triglycerides and phospholipids, while relative esterification of unsaturated fatty acids into phospholipids tended to increase. The data obtained suggest that stimulation of endo- and exogenous fatty acids esterification into triglycerides and phospholipids of liver tissue may be important in pathogenesis of estrogen-induced hypertriglyceridemia.
