We defined abnormal lipids as elevated lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides, or fatty acids) in blood or liver, increased liver weight (as surrogate measurement of hepatic steatosis), and increased activity of liver lipogenic enzymes.

However, high CHO levels in the diets can promote fat deposition by stimulation of lipogenic enzymes in fish liver [19].
Enhanced lipid synthesis results from a higher expression of lipogenic enzymes and cytokines (see table 2) that are encoded by genes regulated by two transcription factors, sterol regulatory element binding protein-1c (SREBP-1c) and early growth response-1 (Egr-1).
In situations where, for example, a person with very difficult-to-treat hypertriglyceridemia is taking a lipogenic protease inhibitor, it may be reasonable to try switching to something else.
