Dietary lipids, gut microbiota and lipid metabolism.

Summary of "Dietary lipids, gut microbiota and lipid metabolism."

The gut microbiota is a central regulator of host metabolism. The composition and function of the gut microbiota is dynamic and affected by diet properties such as the amount and composition of lipids. Hence, dietary lipids may influence host physiology through interaction with the gut microbiota. Lipids affect the gut microbiota both as substrates for bacterial metabolic processes, and by inhibiting bacterial growth by toxic influence. The gut microbiota has been shown to affect lipid metabolism and lipid levels in blood and tissues, both in mice and humans. Furthermore, diseases linked to dyslipidemia, such as non-alcoholic liver disease and atherosclerosis, are associated with changes in gut microbiota profile. The influence of the gut microbiota on host lipid metabolism may be mediated through metabolites produced by the gut microbiota such as short-chain fatty acids, secondary bile acids and trimethylamine and by pro-inflammatory bacterially derived factors such as lipopolysaccharide. Here we will review the association between gut microbiota, dietary lipids and lipid metabolism.

Phytic acid actions on hepatic lipids and gut microbiota in rats fed a diet high in sucrose is influenced by dietary fat level.

Phytic acid (PA) or myoinositol intake was recently reported by our group to suppress hepatic lipogenic gene expression and modulate gut microbiota in rats fed a high-sucrose diet (HSC). The aim of th...

Gut Microbiota Functional Biomolecules With Immune-Lipid Metabolism for a Prognostic Compound Score in Epstein-Barr Virus-Associated Gastric Adenocarcinoma: A Pilot Study.

Increasing evidence has indicated an association between gut microbiota in gastrointestinal cancer and clinical outcome. Herein, we aim to develop a prognosis-prediction tool based on an immune-lipid ...

Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids affect volume and metabolism of Drosophila melanogaster sperm.

Dietary fatty acids can accumulate in sperm and affect their function in vertebrates. As Drosophila melanogaster shares several pathways of lipid metabolism and shows similar lipid-dependent phenotype...

Functional diversity of glycerolipid acylhydrolases in plant metabolism and physiology.

Most current knowledge about plant lipid metabolism has focused on the biosynthesis of lipids and their transport between different organelles. However, lipid composition changes during development an...

The relationship between microwave radiation injury and abnormal lipid metabolism.

Microwave radiation can lead to some biological effects, mainly involving the nervous and reproductive systems. However, its lipid metabolic mechanism remains unclear. Here, we performed an untargeted...

A Molecular Pharmacodynamic Dose-titration Trial of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA; Clarinol®) in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

It has become apparent that many cancers depend on specific fats (lipids) for their continued growth. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a safe, popular, and well-tolerated dietary suppleme...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The metabolic process of breaking down LIPIDS to release FREE FATTY ACIDS, the major oxidative fuel for the body. Lipolysis may involve dietary lipids in the DIGESTIVE TRACT, circulating lipids in the BLOOD, and stored lipids in the ADIPOSE TISSUE or the LIVER. A number of enzymes are involved in such lipid hydrolysis, such as LIPASE and LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE from various tissues.

Dynamic cytoplasmic organelles found in almost all cells. They consist of a central core of LIPIDS surrounded by a phospholipid monolayer studded with surface proteins, and are involved in LIPID METABOLISM and storage.

Substances that alter the metabolism of LIPIDS.

Errors in the metabolism of LIPIDS resulting from inborn genetic MUTATIONS that are heritable.

Physiological processes in biosynthesis (anabolism) and degradation (catabolism) of LIPIDS.
