The effect of transient ischemia on fatty acid and lipid metabolism in the gerbil brain.

Abstract

Brain ischemia was produced in gerbils by contemporary occlusion of both carotid arteries. Definite changes of the energy state in brain demonstrated that carotid occlusion was effective. At short time intervals from occlusion the free fatty acid content, their distribution, and their concentration and specific activity in arachidonate were determined in… (More)
