Abstract:

A preliminary survey of tissue lipid composition in acrylamide intoxicated rats is reported. The animals were injected intraperitoneally with acrylamide 50 mg/kg body weight per day for 10 days. Liver cholesterol, mainly in the ester fraction, was decreased in treated rats. When fatty acid composition of liver cholesterol esters was examined, the proportions of linoleate and stearate were found to be decreased and were compensated by the increase of palmitate. Atrophy of epididymal fat pad resulted in severe triglyceride depletion and a relative increase in the proportion of phospholipids and cholesterol. There was also a reduction of linoleate, palmitate and palmitoleate in triglycerides and phospholipids of this tissue. There were, however, only minor changes in the fatty acid profile of the sciatic nerve.
