Female Sprague-Dawley rats (220-240 g) were ovariectomized
and seven days later were either treated as controls or received a
single injection of either 0.1 μg, 100 μg, or 2 mg of estradiol-17β dissolved in 0.1 cc propylene glycol. These rats were autopsied
either 1, 3, 6, 24, 48, or 72...
Cyclopropenoid fatty acids (CPFA) are natural components of
cottonseed oil, a major food oil in the United States. The ability of
CPFA to cause abnormal biochemical and physiological effects when
fed to laboratory and farm animals has prompted an investigation of
their effects on mice.
Between 0.05 and 0.55% CPFA...
The effect of vitamin B-6 (B-6) status on plasma fatty acids (FA) levels and lipid
metabolism was investigated in this metabolic study. Eight female subjects were fed for 28
days. For the first 7 days, they were fed a constant diet containing 2.10 mg of B-6. For the
In this study subcutaneous, inter- and intramuscular fats from 42
Hereford steers were analyzed for their fatty acid composition using
gas-liquid chromatography. The same tissues were analyzed from one
pair each of identical twins of Angus and Shorthorn breeding. Muscle
and liver lipids from these latter four animals were fractionated...
During the 21 day incubation period, the fertile egg provides nutrients such as fatty acids for energy and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) for membrane synthesis to the developing chick. The hypothesis tested in the present study is that the type of PUFA fed to the breeder hen can alter tissue...
Cyclopropenoid fatty acids (CPFA), which are a group of
fatty acids produced by plants of the order Malvales, are known
to induce adverse physiological effects when administered to a
variety of animal species. A structurally strained cyclopropene
ring is present in all CPFA and is believed responsible for the
