Compartmental modeling to quantify alpha-linolenic acid conversion after longer term intake of multiple tracer boluses.


To estimate in vivo alpha-linolenic acid (ALA; C18:3n-3) conversion, 29 healthy subjects consumed for 28 days a diet providing 7% of energy from linoleic acid (C18:2n-6) and 0.4% from ALA. On day 19, subjects received a single bolus of 30 mg of uniformly labeled [(13)C]ALA and for the next 8 days 10 mg twice daily. Fasting plasma phospholipid concentrations… (More)
