(To the liver, from the epithelial cells of the small intestine) In what form are the fats? (Triglycerides) What enzyme must be activated in adipose tissue in order for VLDLs and IDLs to deposit lipids? (Lipoprotein Lipase) What activates lipoprotein lipase in adipose cells? (Insulin) What happens if an LDL particle is oxidized in the arteries? (WBC cannot leave artery wall either, so they are both stuck and form a foam cell) Atherosclerosis True/False: Atherosclerotic buildup does not begin until around age 30 in most individuals (False - most individuals have buildup by late adolescence) Where does atherosclerotic buildup usually begin in the arteries?

(False – not a 1:1 ratio) Explain what might happen to an LDL after it is trapped in arterial walls. (WBC might “save” it from the arterial walls, HDL might “save” it from the arterial walls and take it back to the liver for repackaging as a VLDL, or it might become oxidized with a WBC and form a foam cell in the arterial wall) What three nutrients are important to maintain dietary requirements to prevent atherosclerosis? (B6, B12, and folic acid) What nutrient is necessary in the formation of preprothrombin? (Vitamin K) What are AGE particles and what disease causes them to be formed?

(True) How long after a heart attack do you have to get to a hospital? (5 minutes) What is the term for when RBCs block an artery anywhere in your body? (Thrombosis) Measuring Energy What does a bomb calorimeter measure? (Caloric content in foods) What does an RQ of 1 tell you about an individual’s energy use? (You are using purely carbohydrates as a substrate for energy) Why is/isn’t BMI an effective measure of body composition? (Doesn’t take muscle mass into account, so it’s not a good indicator of an individual’s body composition, but is good for population studies in general) Theories of Eating What dietary effect is observed in mice after a lesion of the LH? (Anorexia, reduced
