T/F
Palmitic acid is the main FA in coconut oil.
Arachidonic acid is synthesized in body from linoleic acid.
Prostaglandins contain a cyclopentane ring.
Oleic acid is a polyunsaturated FA.
Cholesterol esters have amphipathic properties.
In phosphoglycerides FA is attached to the 1st & 3rd carbons of glycerol.
Lecithin is a major reserve of choline.
Iodine number is measurement of the unsaturation of a FA.
Cerebroside is made up of sphingosine ,fatty acid & galactose.
Cardiopilin is a diphosphatidyl glycerol.
Phosphoglycerides are made up of glycerol ,phosphate & choline.
Gangliosides are phospholipids.
Sphingomyelin is derived from glycerol.
Head of phosphoglycerides are hydrophobic.
Cholesterol esters are amphipathic.
Cerebrosides are sphingolipids.
