The objective of this study was to investigate whether dietary trans fatty acids (TFA) during the pre- and postnatal periods would exacerbate the effects of marginal essential fatty acid (EFA) status on growth, brain long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) and behavioral development in B6D2F(2) mice. Pregnant B6D2F(1) females were randomly assigned to one of the following three diets: marginal EFA plus 22% trans 18:1 (mEFA + TFA); marginal EFA (mEFA); and control (CON). The total 18:1… CONTINUE READING
