Compared with fatty acid synthesis and metabolism in the liver, the regulation of triacylglycerol (TAG) synthesis
and metabolism is not so clear, particularly in epididymal adipose tissue (adipose tissue). It is likely that most of the
newly made fatty acids are subsequently transported to the extrahepatic tissues for storage and use.
