The effects of 6,9,12,15-hexadecatetraenoic acid (C16:4n-1, HDTA), an n-1 polyunsaturated fatty acid (FA), on plasma and liver lipid content and distribution in blood and tissues were investigated. Mice were fed experimental diets containing 10% HDTA or eicosapentaenoic acid in ethyl ester form based on corn oil for four weeks. Dietary HDTA intake lowered plasma triacylglycerol content without affecting plasma total cholesterol content. HDTA barely accumulated in the epididymal white adipose tissue (eWAT), while C18:4n-1, an HDTA metabolite, was detected in small amounts (< 1% of total FAs) in the plasma, liver, and eWAT.
