Abstract

It has been shown that dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids stimulate the liver microsomal mixed function oxidase system. The influence of different levels of dietary lard, soybean oil and sardine oil on the mixed function oxidase system was investigated in rats. The diet containing 5% sardine oil rich in eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids stimulated the mixed function oxidase system, but the diet containing 5% lard in which lard consisted of 10.7% linolenic acid and 1.5% linolenic acid seemed unlikely to stimulate enough the mixed function oxidase system. On the other hand, no definite effects of large doses of dietary lipids, 25% in the diets, on the mixed function oxidase system were observed.
