Influence of some plasma fatty acids on the phospholipid fatty acid pattern of human platelets--an "ex vivo" experience.

Some correlations between plasma and platelet fatty acids (FA) were evaluated "ex vivo" in 94 normal subjects. The highest relationships between total FA from plasma and platelets were found for 18:1 (r = 0.74) and 18:2 (r = 0.67). Low correlations were obtained for free fatty acids (FFA). The most significant correlations between fatty acids esterifying… CONTINUE READING
