Effect of sex (gender), spaying/neutering (time) and their interaction (gender x time) on species distribution of phosphatidylcholine (means ± SD). The major phosphatidylcholine (PC) species were determined in liver biopsies (a) and plasma (b). PC36:4 and PC38:4 contain arachidonic acid (20:4). PC38:6 and PC40:6 contain docosahexaenoic acid (22:6). a = P < 0.05 male vs female (gender), b = P < 0.05 intact vs spayed/neutered (time), c = P < 0.05 interaction between gender and time
