Sequence studies of citrate cleavage enzyme activity and fatty acid synthesis in rat liver during starvation demonstrated sharp dissociation in the two parameters and indicate that depressed lipogenesis in starvation is not due to decreased levels of citrate cleavage enzyme. Citrate synthase activity was not impaired by a twenty-four hour fast at a time when significant ketosis was observed.
