The spontaneously hypertensive stroke-prone (SHRSP) rat is a commonly used model of cerebrovascular disease and hypertension. SHRSP rats have been shown to develop stroke-related symptoms (SRS) by age 14 weeks when fed a purified diet, such as AIN-93G, supplemented with 1% NaCl. We conducted a patho...

Human milk TAG contain 20–25% 16:0, with over 70% of the 16:0 at the TAG sn-2 position. The benefits of TAG sn-2 16:0 have been ascribed to reducing 16:0 excretion as insoluble fatty acid soaps. This study builds on knowledge that infants conserve milk TG sn-2 16:0 post-absorption. Comparison of p...
