Extreme decrease of linoleic acid in renal medulla from rats after a diet supplemented with cod liver oil.Prostaglandins Leukot Essent Fatty Acids. 1990 Apr; 39(4):329-35.PL
Spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and normotensive rats were fed a diet supplemented with linseed oil or cod liver oil for 22 weeks. The most remarkable finding was an extreme fall of linoleic acid in lipids from renal medulla after cod liver oil supplementation. In free fatty acids (FFA) eicosatrienoic acid (C2): 3n-9) appeared increased as a sign of essential fatty acid (EFA) deficiency.
