    ..In contrast, continuous MCT treatment produces a higher skeletal muscle content of long-chain acylcarnitines after exercise and increases hepatic lipid storage in VLCAD KO mice. ..

    ..An increase in dietary fat is safe at rest with respect to the muscle but results in a significant muscular acylcarnitine increase after exercise. ..
