We tested, with 14-wk-old baboons before weaning, the hypothesis that bile acid metabolism is differentially affected by breast feeding or by feeding formulas with a high polyunsaturated:saturated fatty acid ratio or with a low ratio, similar to that of breast milk. Bile lipid content, bile acid pool size, fractional turnover rate, synthetic rate and conjugate composition were measured in a single bile sample 9 d after an injection on d 1 of a mixture of [14C]cholic and [14C]chenodeoxycholic… CONTINUE READING
