Endogenous synthesis of milk oleic acid in dairy ewes: In vivo measurement using


PMID 28527806

Abstract

The use of stable isotopes is a reliable and risk-free alternative to radioactive tracers for directly examining in vivo fatty acid (FA) metabolism. However, very limited information is available in ruminants, and none is available in sheep. Therefore, we conducted an experiment in dairy ewes to determine, for the first time in this species, the uptake, Δ
