Dietary supplementation of N-3 fatty acids and hydroperoxide levels in rat retinas


Dietary supplementation of N-3 fatty acids and hydroperoxide levels in rat retinas

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) plays an important role in visual and neural development in mammals. In the present study, effect of dietary supplementation with n-3 fatty acids, primarily docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) with high purity, on the fatty acid composition of photoreceptor cells of young rats (fed from 4 weeks) was investigated. DHA in rod outer segment (ROS) membranes was significantly increased in the group of high DHA feeding (9.69% total energy).
