Phosphatidate, Phosphatidylinositol, Diacylglycerols, and Free Fatty Acids in the Brain Following Electroshock, Anoxia, or Ischemia
The first changes clearly established to occur in membrane lipids of the adult brain in situ at the onset of ischemia or after electroshock are the production of free fatty acids (Bazán, 1970; Bazán & Rascowski, 1970; Bazán, 1976) and of diacylglycerols (Aveldaño & Bazán, 1975). On the other hand, in the CNS of newborn mammalians (Bazán, 1971) and of an adult poikilotherm (Aveldaño & Bazán, 1975) ischemia produces free fatty acids at rates lower by several-fold. Thus it was deemed of interest to study the composition and labeling of lipids in newborn brain during anoxia and in the adult brain after electroshock or ischemia.
