Twelve Angus X Hereford steers were assigned to either a control high-energy diet or a test diet consisting of 20% rapeseed at the expense of 20% corn. Twelve pigs were allotted to a control diet and two test diets containing either 10 or 20% canola oil (CO). Both CO and oil in the rapeseed contained 60 to 64% oleic acid.

Assay conditions were established for the fatty acid elongation and the delta 9 desaturase enzyme systems of bovine liver and adipose tissue microsomes; rat liver microsomes were used as a reference. Overall fatty acid elongation was determined by measuring the incorporation of [2-14C]malonyl-coenzyme A (CoA) to 14C-labeled stearate. Rat liver elongation(More)
Eight pigs (four sets of littermates) were allotted to either a control sorghum-soybean meal diet or a test diet containing 20% canola oil.
