Methyl U-14C oleate was fed to mature male and female gouramis (Trichogaster cosby) and the radioactivity in lipids measured over a period of four months. Initial incorporations were 70–80% and more than half of that was still in the lipids at the end of the experiment. Very little conversion of the 18∶1 chain had occurred. Main storage of the labeled 18∶1… CONTINUE READING
