Hepatotoxicity and lipid metabolism-IV structure and molecular species of hepatic triglyceride in rats treated with carbon tetrachloride

Effects of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) on the positional distribution of fatty acids and on the molecular species of hepatic triglyceride in female rats were studied. Six hours after a dose of CCl4, the percentages of palmitic and oleic acids were increased at the 1 and 2 positions respectively in comparison to the control, while linoleic acid was decreased… CONTINUE READING
