Fatty acid composition of equine plasma.
Fatty acid composition of plasma lipids of normal horses was determined. Four fatty acids (C16:0, C18:0, C18:1, and C18:2) comprised 86.73% of the total, with C18:2 comprising 44.04% of the total. Eight other fatty acids were found in small amounts. Unsaturated fatty acids constituted 66% of the total. Marked variation was demonstrated in fatty acid occurrence and distribution in the sterol ester, triglyceride, phospholipid, and free fatty acid fractions.
