NEFA, non-esterified fatty acids; NL, neutral lipids; PL, phospholipids. Nd, not detected; ta, trace amounts.

Only fatty acids contributing >1% of total fatty acid concentration in at least one lipid fraction are tabulated. For each fraction, total concentration (in nmol FA ml-1 plasma) is also indicated (bottom line).

Values are means ± s.e.m. (N=5).
