Accumulation of deuterium-labeled C16:0 (d 31 C16:0) and C18:0 (d 35 C18:0) in blood. Exogenous d 31 -C16:0 and d 35 -C18:0 in the blood on day 7 are shown in relative amount (as a percentage of the total blood fatty acids) (a) and in absolute amount (b) among control, n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid groups. One-way ANOVA analysis was performed by SPSS (IBM SPSS Statistics, Ver. 20) and those were of significance (P < 0.05) were marked with an asterisk (N = 5)
