  1. Hamsters were fed fish oil (FO), monounsaturated fatty acid rich (MUFA) or N6:N3 diets for 4 weeks. Lipids were analysed as described under materials and methods section. Values are means SEM, (n = 6 for F1B, n = 6 for GS). Groups were compared by two-way ANOVA, p = 0.05. D, S represents diet and strain respectively.
