Abstract

1. 1. Membrane phospholipid and its fatty acid compositions have been analyzed in 3- and 9-week-old rat salivary glands. 2. 2. When compared between the three major glands (parotid, submandibular, sublingual) in adult rats, phospholipid compositions were similar, but for their fatty acid, characteristic properties from each phospholipid were shown. 3. 3. Alterations in their compositions were also observed during development of the salivary glands.
