Chronic hypoxia alters fatty acid composition of phospholipids in right and left ventricular myocardium


Adult male Wistar rats were exposed to intermittent high altitude hypoxia of 7000 m simulated in a hypobaric chamber for 8 h/day, 5 days a week; the total number of exposures was 25. The concentration of individual phospholipids and their fatty acid (FA) profile was determined in right (RV) and left (LV) ventricles. Adaptation to hypoxia decreased the… (More)
