The influence of dietary rapeseed oil on the lipid classes and fatty acid pattern of rat heart homogenate and mitochondria has been investigated after feeding a diet with 9.8 weight- % erucic acid for 10 days and 1.4 and 2.6% erucic acid for 28 days. The rats treated with 9.8% erucic acid showed a significant increase in the triglycerides of the heart mitochondria. This tendency was much less pronounced in rats treated with 1.4 resp. 2.6% erucic acid. These results confirm those of other… CONTINUE READING
