Lipid structure of rat adipocyte plasma membranes following dietary lard and fish oil.

We have determined the changes in the lipid structure of the adipocyte plasma membranes of rats receiving lard or fish oil in their diet. For this purpose, mature Wistar rats were fed 20% (w/w) lard or fish oil diets for 22 days, when the plasma membranes of the epididymal and perirenal adipocytes were prepared. Detailed analysis of the membrane lipids by… CONTINUE READING
