CLA is of considerable interest because of reported potentially beneficial effects in animal studies. CLA, while not yet unambiguously defined, is a mixture of octadecadienoic acids with conjugated double bonds. The major isomer in natural products is generally considered to be cis-9,trans-11-octadecadienoic acid (c9,t11), which represents > 75% of the ...

The mono trans geometrical isomer of eicosapentaenoic acid, 5c,8c,11c,14c,17t-eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5delta5c,8c,11c,14c,17t), was synthesized by fatty acid microbial conversion using a delta12-desaturase defective mutant of an arachidonic acid (AA)-producing fungus, Mortierella alpina 1S-4. The substrate for the bioconversion, a geometrical isomer of linolenic acid, was prepared by isomerization of linseed oil ...

Simvastatin enhances the conversion of linoleic acid to their long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid derivatives, e.g. arachidonic acid, in addition to typically inhibiting the de novo cholesterol synthesis, in cultured cells. The dose-response relationships for the above effects show that simvastatin, atorvastatin and fluvastatin affect linoleic acid conversion and the ...

Two isomers of cis-aconytil-daunomycin (cAD) were isolated after the reaction of daunomycin with cis-aconitic-anhydride. The structure of the isomers was identified by MS-spectroscopy and 1H and 13C NMR experiments. In contrast with the assumptions described earlier, our results show that the two isomers belong to the cis- and trans-isomers of ...

An isomer of the conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) produced from linoleic acid by Lactobacillus plantarum was identified as cis-9,trans-11-octadecadienoic acid by proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Together with earlier results, we concluded that the bacterium produces two CLA isomers, cis-9,trans-11- and trans-9,trans-11-octadecadienoic acid from linoleic acid. The addition of L-serine, ...

Hepatic ACMSD [EC4.1.1.45] plays a key role in regulating NAD biosynthesis from tryptophan. We previously reported that ingestion of polyunsaturated fatty acids by rats leads to a decrease in their hepatic ACMSD activity. We purified ACMSD and cloned cDNA encoding rat ACMSD. Therefore, in this study, we examined whether dietary ...

Adrenal steroidogenesis is under complex control, and clinical observations suggest that not all regulators have been identified. We postulated that fatty acid oxidation products found in the diet or formed in the body could affect steroidogenesis. Linoleic acid is a prominent constituent of animal fat and is readily oxidized. We ...

For the biosynthesis of punicic acid (18:3Delta9Z,11E,13Z) a (11,14)-linoleoyl desaturase activity has been proposed. To isolate this acyl-lipid-desaturase, PCR-based cloning was used. This approach resulted in the isolation of two complete cDNAs. The first isolated full-length cDNA harbors a sequence of 1350 bp encoding a protein of 395 amino acids. ...

While conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is regarded as an essential fatty acid with anticarcinogenic effects, conventional linoleic acid (LA) is reported to promote tumour growth in various experimental studies probably caused by high sensitivity to non-enzymatic lipid peroxidation. In order to evaluate the impact of dietary LA and CLA on ...

Ricinoleic acid (12-hydroxy-cis-9-octadecaenoic acid) was an effective substrate for conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) production by washed cells of Lactobacillus plantarum AKU 1009a. The CLA produced was a mixture of cis-9,trans-11- and trans-9,trans-11-octadecadienoic acids. Addition of alpha-linolenic acid to the culture medium increased the CLA productivity of the washed cells. In ...

Production of conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) using castor oil as starting material involves conversion of ricinoleic acid to methyl 12-mesyloxy-octadec-9-enoate (MMOE) followed by dehydration. This process usually uses 1,8-diazabicyclo-(5.4.0)-undec-7-ene (DBU) as an expensive dehydrating reagent. The present study reports that potassium hydroxide (KOH) can serve as a dehydrating reagent in ...

In addition to a previously characterized 13-lipoxygenase of 100 kDa encoded by LOX2:Hv:1 [Vörös et al., Eur. J. Biochem. 251 (1998), 36-44], two full-length cDNAs (LOX2:Hv:2, LOX2:Hv:3) were isolated from barley leaves (Hordeum vulgare cv. Salome) and characterized. Both of them encode 13-lipoxygenases with putative target sequences for chloroplast import. ...
