Table 4 Ratios of FA in hepatic PL pools with a Δ9 double bond/equivalent FA without a Δ9 double bond. There was some evidence to indicate Δ9 desaturase activity may have been impaired, as explained in the text. Abbreviations: FA, fatty acid; PL, phospholipid; see Table 1 for additional abbreviations. Δ9 desaturase is also known as stearoyl-Coenzyme A desaturase (Scd1). Groups sharing a superscript in common are not statistically significant, ANOVA, P < 0.05.
