Table 3 Ratios of FA with n+2 carbons/FA with n carbons in the diet and various hepatic PL pools. There was some evidence to indicate elongase activity may have been impaired in some cases, as explained in the text. n, refers to the number of carbons in the FA chain length; Eth, Ether; refer to previous Tables for other abbreviations. Groups sharing a superscript in common are not statistically significant, ANOVA, P < 0.05.
