1. 1. Adrenergic inhibition of lipogenesis was examined in vitro using hepatocytes isolated from chickens 2-9 weeks old. 2. 2. Lipogenesis was inhibited by β1, β2 and α1 agonists. Greatest inhibition occurred when more than one type of receptor was stimulated. 3. 3. Clonidine (α2-agonist) may have stimulated lipogenesis. 4. 4. Responsiveness to the agonists decreased as the chickens got older.
