Table 1 Mean ± S.D for the absolute (mmoles/gm brain tissue) and relative concentrations of propionic, acetic and butyric acids in the brain homogenates of the control and PPA-intoxicated rats

From: Relative abundance of short chain and polyunsaturated fatty acids in propionic acid-induced autistic features in rat pups as potential markers in autism
