lipogenesis

the formation of fats from nonfatty sources.

lipogenesis

formation of fatty acids from carbohydrate, mainly in the liver. The fatty acids can then be combined with glycerol to form triglycerides (TG) which are incorporated in very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), passed into the circulation and taken up by adipose and muscle tissue; thus excess of ingested carbohydrate that is not used immediately for metabolic purposes is taken up and stored as TG in adipose tissue and muscle. See also free fatty acids, lipoprotein lipase.
