The fatty acid composition of phospholipids in peritoneal exudate cells and spleen cells was assessed in five rat strains fed four test diets of differing fatty acid composition. Distinctive patterns of fatty acids were seen in the total phospholipid preparations in both cell types in response to the diets which contained either olive, sunflower, linseed or fish oil. In general, similar fatty acid profiles were seen in each of the rat strains fed the same diet with the only evidence of possible genetic (strain) variation being a relative deficiency of delta 4 desaturase in Dark Agouti rats.
