From: Hepatic transcriptome analysis of inter-family variability in flesh n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid content in Atlantic salmon

Family Total Lipid (g/100 g flesh) n-3 LC-PUFA ARA

  1. Indicated are levels of total lipid (g/100 g flesh, wet weight), and relative and absolute contents of total n-3 LC-PUFA and of the n-6 LC-PUFA arachidonic acid (ARA) in the flesh (n = 3 pools) of the 4 Atlantic salmon families used in the transcriptomic analysis. Asterisks signify significant differences between the two families with the same total lipid content.
