  1. The compound and specific tissue compared between IM and SM are listed. Compounds include 3-keto petromyzonol sulfate (3kPZS), 3-keto allocholic acid (3kACA), petromyzonol sulfate (PZS), allocholic acid (ACA), and petromyzonamine disulfate (PADS). Actual concentrations can be seen in Figure 3 and 4. Bold font indicate significant differences between IM and SM (ANOVA and post-hoc Tukey’s HSD; α = 0.05).
