Increased arachidonic acid concentration in the brain of Flinders Sensitive Line rats, an animal model of depression.

Depression may be associated with impaired membrane PUFA composition, especially decreased n-3 PUFA. This assumption has not been tested at the level of brain tissue. Moreover, most studies were confounded by dietary variability. We examined the FA composition of selected brain areas in an animal model of depression, the Flinders Sensitive Line (FSL) rat… CONTINUE READING
