Monoethylenic isomers in cardiac lipids of rats fed partially hydrogenated herring oil
- 15 Downloads
Compositional studies have been carried out to compare the monoethylenic fatty acid isomers of a partially hydrogenated herring oil with those found in the cardiac lipid of young rats fed this oil for 1 or 16 weeks. In general, all geometrical and positional isomers with chain lengths C16, C18, C20 and C22 found in the hydrogenated oil were also observed in cardiac lipid. Evidence was also obtained for the occurrence of β-oxidation in the catabolism of thecis andtrans isomers of these long chain acids.
