Male weanling Wistar rats were maintained on one of two semisynthetic diets, differing only in the type of oil used: (i) 10% by weight marine fish oil (MFO group) containing 20% eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 17% docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), or (ii) 10% by weight sunflower oil (SFO group). The control group was kept on standard diet for 4 weeks. Blood-free microvessels were isolated from brain cortex by a rapid micromethod, and their fatty acid composition was determined by gas chromatography… CONTINUE READING
