Rats were fed diets providing either 0.3% (low EFA), 3% (control) or 10% (high EFA) of the energy as essential fatty acids. (All diets provided 20 energy percent of fat.) Both the experimental groups had a lower body weight than the controls. Small differences were found between the groups in many traditional parameters of brown adipose tissue activity (wet weight, protein content, mitochondrial content, cytochrome c oxidase activity). A specific increase in the mitochondrial concentration of… CONTINUE READING
