In the present study eicosanoid synthesis was studied in macrophages of guinea pigs fed different amounts of (n-6)- and (n-3)-polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). Three groups of weanling guinea pigs were fed by isocaloric diets differing only in their contents of PUFA: controls with 2.8 Cal% of linoleic acid (LA; 18:2(n-6)); (n-6)-rich fed animals with 15.4… CONTINUE READING
