Abstract

Purpose. To characterize the molecular species composition of ethanolamine glycerophospholipids (EGP) in the primate retina and to examine the effects of different dietary fats, the authors fed rhesus monkeys diets containing widely ranging amounts of n-3 fatty acids. Methods. From birth, infant monkeys were fed either a control soybean oil diet, containing 8% of total fatty acids as 18:3(n-3), or a safflower oil-based n-3 fatty acid deficient diet containing
