Effect of chlorophenoxyisobutyric acid (CPIB) on fat-mobilizing lipolysis and cyclic AMP levels in rat epididymal fat

High concentrations of chlorophenoxyisobutyric acid (CPIB) reduced basal glycerol release from rat epididymal fat pads in vitro and antagonized the lipolytic effects of noradrenaline. Furthermore, very high concentrations of CPIB significantly antagonized the effects or noradrenaline or ACTH on cyclic AMP accumulation by isolated rat adipocytes. These data are not incompatible with the hypothesis that a primary mechanism in the hypolipidemic action of CPIB is to lower the levels of cyclic AMP in adipose tissue, resulting in decreased hormone-sensitive lipase activity and/or increased lipoprotein lipase activity.
