 Total LCACoAs (nmol/g)0.83 ± 0.10.54 ± 0.1
Red quadriceps
 Glycogen content (μmol/g)34.4 ± 1.840.9 ± 2.7
 Triglyceride content (μmol/g)3.3 ± 0.23.0 ± 0.2
 Total LCACoAs (nmol/g)2.54 ± 0.53.21 ± 0.6
Liver

 Triglyceride content (μmol/g)17.0 ± 1.216.2 ± 0.7
  • Data are means ± SE. Total LCACoAs represent the sum of the three major species: Linoleoyl-CoA, Palmitoyl-CoA, and Oleoyl-CoA; n = 6 per group.
