Transport of subcutaneously injected [1-14C]-stearic acid through the blood-brain barrier is compared with endogenous biosynthesis (within the brain) during postnatal brain development in mice. The uptake is very important during glial cell multiplication and myelination; endogenous microsomal synthesis is most active during myelination, soluble de novo mechanism is prominent during cell multiplication (mitochondrial systems are not directly related to these events). A parallel is drawn between… CONTINUE READING
