Fatty acid composition of phospholipids in epithelium and stroma of human benign prostatic hyperplasia.

BACKGROUND Although it is well known that prostatic 5alpha-reductase is active only in its membrane-bound form, rather limited information is available concerning the composition of cellular lipids in human BPH. Therefore, in the present study, the phospholipid fatty acid composition and content in epithelium and stroma of human BPH have been investigated… (More)
