Glycerophospholipid composition in the liver of tadpoles. Tadpoles (n = 6/group) were reared in dechlorinated tap water at 26 °C with or without 5 nM 3,3′,5-triiodothyronine (T3; 26C and 26T, respectively) or 4 °C with or without 5 nM T3 (4C and 4T, respectively) for 3 days (A) or 7 days (B). Glycerophospholipids analyzed were phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylinositol (PI), phosphatidylglycerol (PG), and cardiolipin (CL). Each glycerophospholipid sample was extracted from the livers of two animals. Glycerophospholipid composition is expressed as a percentage of the total moles of glycerophospholipids investigated in each sample. Values are mean ± SEM (n = 3)
