Docosahexaenoate metabolism and fatty-acid composition in developing retinas of normal and rd mutant mice.

Abstract

The fatty-acid composition of retinal lipids in developing control and rd mice (C57BL/6J) was determined. In addition, fatty-acid composition in brain and retina of normal and rd adult animals was compared. At 11 days of postnatal age, rd retinas contained proportionally less docosahexaenoate than controls, whereas the reverse relationship held for oleate… (More)
