Desaturation of endogenous and exogenous palmitate in lung tissue in vitro

Abstract

Lung slices from rats fed a fat-free diet supplemented with safflower oil (control) or tripalmitoyl-glycerol (essential fatty acid [EFA]-deficient) were incubated with [14C] acetate, [14C] palmitate, or [14C] stearate. Of the14C recovered in phospholipids after incubation with [14C] acetate, more than 87% was in 16-carbon fatty acids. Desaturation, as… (More)
