Is Omega-3 Fatty Acid Red Blood Cell (RBC) Saturation Product Dependent?

2014-08-27 03:15:03 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To demonstrate that RBC saturation of the Omega-3 fatty acids reaching cardioprotective levels as proven with the HS-Omega-3 Index test will be achieved most efficiently depending on a specific product utilized within this study.

Description

To demonstrate that RBC saturation of the Omega-3 fatty acids reaching cardioprotective levels as proven with the HS-Omega-3 Index test will be achieved most efficiently depending on a specific product utilized within this study. The HS-Omega-3 Index is a new test that measures blood levels of the cardioprotective omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. RBS saturation is being measured to identify how much Omega 3 is in the blood.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

FATTY ACIDS which have the first unsaturated bond in the sixth position from the omega carbon. A typical American diet tends to contain substantially more omega-6 than OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS.

A neurotoxic peptide, which is a cleavage product (VIa) of the omega-Conotoxin precursor protein contained in venom from the marine snail, CONUS geographus. It is an antagonist of CALCIUM CHANNELS, N-TYPE.

A group of fatty acids, often of marine origin, which have the first unsaturated bond in the third position from the omega carbon. These fatty acids are believed to reduce serum triglycerides, prevent insulin resistance, improve lipid profile, prolong bleeding times, reduce platelet counts, and decrease platelet adhesiveness.

Peptide neurotoxins from the marine fish-hunting snails of the genus CONUS. They contain 13 to 29 amino acids which are strongly basic and are highly cross-linked by disulfide bonds. There are three types of conotoxins, omega-, alpha-, and mu-. OMEGA-CONOTOXINS inhibit voltage-activated entry of calcium into the presynaptic membrane and therefore the release of ACETYLCHOLINE. Alpha-conotoxins inhibit the postsynaptic acetylcholine receptor. Mu-conotoxins prevent the generation of muscle action potentials. (From Concise Encyclopedia Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 3rd ed)

A competitive inhibitor of nitric oxide synthetase.
