Table 3 Alkylglycerol composition of tumor tissue

From: Antitumor and anti-cachectic effects of shark liver oil and fish oil: comparison between independent or associative chronic supplementation in Walker 256 tumor-bearing rats

Alkylglycerols (ng/mg of tumor tissue) Groups
W WSLO WFO WSLO + FO
Hexadecylglycerol (C16:0)+     
Octadecylglycerol (C18:0)+ 4.6 ± 0.7 7.6 ± 0.3a 2.8 ± 0.2 2.2 ± 0.3
Octadecenylglycerol (C18:1)     
  1. Tumor tissue from Walker 256 tumor-bearing rats fed regular chow (W), supplemented with SLOil (WSLO), FOil (WFO) or both (WSLO + FO), determined by GC-MS (gas chromatography – mass spectrometry). Data are presented as mean ± SEM of 3 independent measurements (GC-MS) of 3 rats per group (n = 9). ap < 0.05 compared to other groups.
