... ), and for proper physical growth and immune system function in vertebrates generally ( Bauer et al., 2014 ; Calder, 2015 ; Castro et al., 2016 ; Dyall, 2015 ; Pappas et al., 2007 ; Speake and Wood, 2005 ). The main n-3 LCPUFAs providing these benefits are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid...

... docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and metabolic rate. We tested this hypothesis using a novel model, altricial red-winged blackbird nestlings, predicting that the proportion of DHA in muscle and liver membranes should increase with the increasing metabolic rate of the nestling as it develops endothermy. We also used...

... on Corophium volutator , an amphipod containing high amounts of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA), particularly eicosapentaenoic (20:5) and docosahexaenoic acid (22:6). In mammals, high dietary intake of n-3 PUFA is known to increase capacity for oxidative metabolism. Therefore, we hypothesized...

... from both endothermic classes were dominated by the long chain n- 3 polyunsaturate, docosahexaenoic acid [22:6( n- 3)], which accounted for an average of 28% and 34% of the total fatty acids in the mammals and birds respectively. Bird membranes also contained a relatively large percentage of 22:5 ( n...

... of total polyunsaturates in bird muscle. The relative content of the highly polyunsaturated docosahexaenoic acid (22:6 n -3) showed the greatest scaling with body mass, having an allometric exponent of -0.28. The contribution of this n -3 polyunsaturate to the unsaturation index varied with body size...
