Influence of the degree of ripeness of cotton seeds on the fatty acid composition of the lipids

  • S. G. Yunusova
  • S. D. Gusakova


The total fatty acids of cotton seeds include 31 components. The 18:3 acid that is the main component of the early-ripe seeds is present mostly in the mono-, di-, and triacylglycerides. The distribution of the fatty acids in the triacylglycerides of the early-ripe seeds is not characterized by selectivity.
