Effects of Dietary myo-Inositol, D-chiro-Inositol and L-chiro-Inositol on Hepatic Lipids with Reference to the Hepatic myo-Inositol Status in Rats Fed on 1,1,1-Trichloro-2,2-bis (p-chlorophenyl) Ethane

The effects of dietary 0.2% inositol stereoisomers on the hepatic lipids and <I>myo</I>-inositol (MI) status in rats fed with 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT) were investigated. Dietary MI reduced the hepatic lipids in the rats fed with DDT. Dietary <small>D</small>-<I>chiro</I>-inositol (DCI) and <small>L</small>-<I>chiro</I>-inositol (LCI) both had a promoting effect on the increase in hepatic lipids due to DDT feeding. Dietary MI enhanced the hepatic free MI level and the phosphatidylinositol/phosphatidylcholine ratio, but dietary DCI reduced the level and ratio.
