Effect of retinol on the molecular species of hepatic phosphatidyl choline in young rats.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Effect of feeding 1.5 and 12 mg retinol respectively for two days to young rats on the distribution and synthesis of molecular species of PC in liver was studied. A significant decrease was observed in the amounts of trienoic and tetraeonic PC in rats fed 12 mg retinol. Feeding of retinol did not affect the synthesis of PC via CDP - choline pathway but enhanced the synthesis of hexaenoic PC via N-methylation of PE.
