Long-chain fatty acids and ethanol affect the properties of membranes inDrosophila melanogaster larvae

Abstract

The larval fatty acid composition of neutral lipids and membrane lipids was determined in three ethanol-tolerant strains ofDrosophila melanogaster. Dietary ethanol promoted a decrease in long-chain fatty acids in neutral lipids along with enhanced alcohol dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.1) activity in all of the strains. Dietary ethanol also increased the… (More)
