Unsaturated fatty acids compositional changes and desaturation during the embryonic development of the chicken (Gallus domesticus)

Abstract

An investigation has been made to correlate the activities of the Δ9- and Δ6-long chain fatty acid desaturation systems with the increased levels of oleic and arachidonic acids in the liver relative to the yolk sac membrane of the chick embryo during the last week of development. The membrane exhibited high levels of both stearic and linoleic acid… (More)
