In a previous work, we calculated the dietary alpha-linolenic requirements (from vegetable oil triglycerides) for obtaining and maintaining a physiological level of (n-3) fatty acids in developing animal membranes as determined by the cervonic acid content [22:6(n-3), docosahexaenoic acid]. The aim of the present study was to measure the phospholipid requirement, as these compounds directly provide the very long polyunsaturated fatty acids found in membranes. Two weeks before mating, eight… CONTINUE READING
