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...
The objective of this study was to determine the genetic relationship between the oleic acid and protein content. The genotypes having high oleic acid and elevated protein (HOEP) content were crossed ...
Binding of clopidogrel to serum albumin has been characterized in the presence and absence of linoleic acid by equilibrium dialysis method where ranitidine and diazepam were used as specific probes. O...
The Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito is a vector of several diseases, and its control has been performed with synthetic insecticides, which may have human and environmental side effects. Thus, the use ...
Long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase (ACSL)-dependent upper small intestinal lipid metabolism activates pre-absorptive pathways to regulate metabolic homeostasis, but whether changes in the upper small inte...
(Kakadu plum) is a native Australian fruit. Industrial processing of fruits into puree generates seeds as a by-product, which are generally discarded. The aim of our present study was to process the ...
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.
