Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a known endotoxin and a potent immune modulator. LPS induction leads to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). ARDS is a threatening disease with high mortality rate. The immunological effect of LPS on spleen and thymus is well documented; conversely membrane phospholipid (PL) importance has not yet been studied. We aimed to investigate the influence of LPS on spleen and thymus phospholipid, their fatty acid composition by [32P]-labeling in rats, it showed significant alterations.
