Allometric scaling of fatty acyl chains in fowl liver, lung and kidney, but not in brain phospholipids.


The phospholipid (PL) fatty acyl chain (FA) composition (mol%) was determined in the kidney, liver, lung and brain of 8 avian species ranging in body mass from 150g (Japanese quail, Coturnix coturnix japonica) to 19kg (turkey, Meleagris gallopavo).
