Human lipid intake contains various amounts of trans fatty acids. Refined vegetable and frying oils, rich in linoleic acid and/or alpha-linolenic acid, are the main dietary sources of trans-18:2 and trans-18:3 fatty acids. The aim of the present study was to compare the oxidation of linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and ...

The hypothesis that the Delta9 desaturase of Chlorella vulgaris might operate by a synchronous mechanism has been tested using a kinetic isotope effect (KIE) approach. Thus the intermolecular primary deuterium KIE on the individual C-H bond cleavage steps involved in Delta9 desaturation have been determined by incubating growing cultures of ...

Oxidation of lipoproteins, particularly low-density lipoprotein, is thought to play a major role in the development of atherosclerosis. We set out to identify and quantitate the major fatty acid oxidation products in human atherosclerotic plaque obtained from individuals undergoing carotid endarterectomy. Oxidized lipids were extracted from plaque homogenate under conditions ...

Seed from maize (corn) Zea mays provides a ready source of 9-lipoxygenase that oxidizes linoleic acid and linolenic acid into 9(S)-hydroperoxy-10(E),12(Z)-octadecadienoic acid and 9(S)-hydroperoxy-10(E),12(Z),15(Z)-octadecatrienoic acid, respectively. Corn seed has a very active hydroperoxide-decomposing enzyme, allene oxide synthase (AOS), which must be removed prior to oxidizing the fatty acid. A simple ...

We investigated the efficacy of a 4-wk supplementation of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) as free fatty acid (FFA) or triacylglycerol (TG) on serum leptin concentration, body-fat accumulation, and mitochondrial beta-oxidation in Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rats. A significant reduction of serum leptin concentration (42%) and a decrease in the ...

P450 epoxidation of linoleic acid has been associated with many pathological conditions that often lead to acute renal failure. However, there is only suggestive evidence that linoleic acid monoepoxides and/or linoleic diols directly induce mitochondrial dysfunction. Using isolated rabbit renal cortical mitochondria (RCM), we found that linoleic acid (50 microM) ...

In soybean (Glycine max L.) vegetative tissue at least five lipoxygenase isozymes are present. Four of these proteins have been localized to the paraveinal mesophyll, a layer of cells that is thought to function in assimilate partitioning. In order to determine the role of the lipoxygenase isozymes within the soybean ...

Linoleic acid monoepoxides have been correlated with many pathological conditions. Studies using insect cells derived from Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf-21 cells) have suggested that conversion of the epoxides to the diols is required for toxicity. However, more recent studies using rabbit renal proximal tubules have suggested that linoleic acid monoepoxides are ...

Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) are important components of cellular structure and function. Most of LC-PUFA are derived from linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid. In plants and fungi, these two acids can be synthesized from oleic acid via the action of two enzymes, delta12 and delta15-desaturases. Due to lack of ...

Four different methods for methylating conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) were compared. The HCl/MeOH and BF(3)/MeOH methods were tested under different time and temperature combinations. Increasing temperature and/or incubation time for either method decreased the cis-9,trans-11 and trans-10,cis-12 isomers, but trans-9,trans-11/trans-10,trans-12 isomers and artifacts (allylic methoxide) were increased. In addition, the ...

Ketotifen fumarate is effective in low doses in the treatment of bronchial asthma particularly of allergic origin. However, it is substantially metabolized in the liver when administered orally. Hence transdermal patches of combination of ethylcellulose/polyvinylpyrrolidone and Eudragits RS 100/RL 100 were prepared and their drug release kinetics and skin permeation ...
