Effects of marine oil-enriched diets on guinea pig megakaryocyte and platelet lipids: effects on thromboxane synthesis and platelet function.

The effects of marine oil-enriched diets on the fatty acid composition of lipids in guinea pig megakaryocytes (MK) and platelets were studied to obtain a better understanding of the mechanisms for changes in platelet fatty acid composition and platelet function. Animals were fed 2%, 5% and 10% menhaden oil-enriched diets for up to 35 days. Platelets and MK… CONTINUE READING
