Thermoadaptation and fatty acid composition of main phospholipids of the small-scaled redfin Tribolodon brandti under natural and experimental conditions

Thermoadaptation and fatty acid composition of main phospholipids of the small-scaled redfin... The fatty acid (FA) composition of the main membrane phospholipids, phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), was investigated in the muscle, gills, and liver of the small-scaled redfin Tribolodon brandti (Dybowskii, 1872) at different temperatures under natural and experimental conditions. It was established that a water temperature decrease in the natural habitat was accompanied by an increase in polyunsaturated fatty acid contents and the unsaturation index, mainly at the expense of FAs of the ω3 series (20:5ω3 and 22:6ω3), and by a decrease in saturated fatty acid levels in PC and PE. A similar, but less pronounced tendency was revealed in experiments with a rapid lowering of water temperature. These findings suggest the weak adaptation ability of the small-scaled redfin to a drastic shift of environmental temperature. Temperature changes produced the greatest alterations in the FA composition of phospholipids in the liver and the smallest changes occurred in muscle tissue. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
