Phospholipids, cholesterol and fatty acids in liver mitochondria and microsomes and red blood cell (RBC) ghosts were estimated for rats after up to 25 weeks on an adequate diet with 30% ethanol or isocaloric sucrose or water to drink. Ethanol did not affect total cholesterol and phospholipids in mitochondria and microsomes after 13 weeks but caused a decrease in total mitochondrial phospholipid after 22 weeks.
