Abstract

1. 1. Tritiated water was found to rapidly equilibrate with the body water of chicks after injection. 2. 2. The 3H also rapidly appeared in both liver and carcass fatty acids, with the greatest rates of incorporation occurring in the initial time periods of measurement. 3. 3. Incorporation of 3H into fatty acids in the liver appeared to proceed primarily via de novo synthesis whereas incorporation of 3H into fatty acids in the carcass occurred primarily via chain elongation.
