Striking differences were found in the compartmentalization of fatty acids into liver lipid fractions. The saturated fatty acids—lauric, myristic, palmitic and stearic—were incorporated into phosphoglycerides at faster rates with increasing chain lengths, while triglyceride incorporation was almost uniform. The degree of incorporation of the unsaturated fatty acids into phosphoglycerides (structural) compared to triglyceride (storage and energy) was the converse of their oxidation rates.
