The present study was designed to determine if dietary supply of long-chain fatty acid (LCFA, C20∶4n-6, and/or C22∶6n-3), reflecting levels that might be incorporated into infant formulas, influences the fatty acid composition of the visual cell membrane. The rod outer segment (ROS) of the retina was analyzed from rats fed diets varying in the ratio of 18… CONTINUE READING
