In order to examine the time course of lipid metabolism in the epidermis, pairs of sites on each of two pigs were given seven intradermal injections of 10 microCi of [1-14C]-acetate at 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 h before the animals were killed. A second time course was obtained with two other pigs at 1 h and 3.5, 7, 10.5, 14, 17.5, and 21 d after(More)
