The relationship between linoleic/linolenic acid ratio in the diet of periparturient cows, the activity of phospholipase A2, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances in placental tissues at calving

Abstract

The studies were undertaken on examining the influence of different linoleic/linolenic acid ratios in the diet of pregnant cows on some parameters which are involved in metabolism of prostaglandins in their placentas. Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) which provides arachidonic acid (AA), superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) the two being… (More)
