VARIATIONS in the growth-response of vitamin A-deficient rats to carotene dissolved in different oils has been partly attributed to their linoleic acid content1. While trying to discover the causes of the variations, it was felt that it would be of interest to test this hypothesis by equalizing the intake of linoleic acid. Rats depleted of vitamin A reserves on a low-fat diet similar to that of Sherman1 were divided into five groups and fed the supplements indicated in the accompanying table by a and b by means of calibrated droppers.
