A randomized, clinical trial to provide the first comprehensive investigation of the role of fatty acid desaturate (FADS) genetic determinants on PUFA biosynthesis and metabolism as well a...
There is existing evidence to show that vegetable oils having unsaturated fatty acids in the sn-2 position with predominantly palmitic acid (C16:0) or stearic acid (C18:0) in the sn-1 and ...
To conduct a randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial to determine the independent and combined effects of dietary conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and vitamin D supplementation o...
High intakes of saturated fat are associated with diabetes. Our work has shown that the two most common fatty acids in the North American diet, palmitic acid (saturated fat) and oleic aci...
Building on the findings from the investigators previous study, COMIT I, the purpose of the COMIT II study is to supplement the DEXA measurement of body composition with a supplementary DE...
In China, the high-oleic acid rapeseed has an oil content of ∼42% and oleic acid (18:1) content of ∼80%. Compared to ordinary rapeseed, high-oleic acid rapeseed has higher levels of monounsaturate...
To assess the associations of dietary linoleic acid (LA) and α-linolenic acid (ALA) with type 2 diabetes (T2D) risk in a population-based cohort and further explore the mechanism of action in a high-...
Regulation of cardiac fatty acid metabolism is central to the development of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure. We investigated the effects of some specific fatty acids on the expression of genes ...
Oxidative rancidity is one of the major causes of peanut quality deterioration. The in-shell nut industry's greatest concern is to preserve high quality and extended the shelf life of these products. ...
Analysis of fatty acids from the cyanobacterium Cyanothece sp. PCC 8801 revealed that this species contained high levels of myristic acid (14:0) and linoleic acid in its glycerolipids, with minor cont...
An octanoic acid bridged with two sulfurs so that it is sometimes also called a pentanoic acid in some naming schemes. It is biosynthesized by cleavage of LINOLEIC ACID and is a coenzyme of oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (KETOGLUTARATE DEHYDROGENASE COMPLEX). It is used in DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS.
An unsaturated fatty acid that is the most widely distributed and abundant fatty acid in nature. It is used commercially in the preparation of oleates and lotions, and as a pharmaceutical solvent. (Stedman, 26th ed)
An omega-6 fatty acid produced in the body as the delta 6-desaturase metabolite of linoleic acid. It is converted to dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid, a biosynthetic precursor of monoenoic prostaglandins such as PGE1. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
A colorless, syrupy, strongly acidic liquid that can form detergents with oleic acid.
A family of POTASSIUM and SODIUM-dependent acidic amino acid transporters that demonstrate a high affinity for GLUTAMIC ACID and ASPARTIC ACID. Several variants of this system are found in neuronal tissue.
