Abstract

1. 1. The effects of glucagon alone and glucagon plus stress on lipid levels in various organs were studied. 2. 2. Stress added to glucagon produced no significant change in cholesterol levels of the kidney, liver, and aorta. There were also no significant changes in the triglyceride levels of liver, aorta and serum. 3. 3. Stress did raise the level of diaphragm and serum cholesterol. 4. 4. Stress lowered kidney and diaphragmatic triglyceride in glucagon treated animals. 5. 5. The significance of these results are discussed.
