Abstract Background: Concomitant supplementation with docosahexaenoic acid (22:6 n-3; DHA) prevented trans-10, cis-12-conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and insulin resistance. The effective dose of DHA and mechanisms involved are poorly understood. Methods: We examined the ability of DHA (0.5% and 1.5%) to prevent increases in NAFLD and homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) induced by CLA (0.5%) when fed concomitantly for 4 weeks to C57BL/6N female mice. We also examined changes in expression of hepatic genes involved in fatty acid synthesis and oxidation. Results: CLA supplementation increased liver triglycerides (TG) and HOMA-IR by 221% and 547%, respectively, and decreased mass of different adipose depots by 65%-90% when compared to those in the control group. When fed concomitantly, DHA prevented CLA-induced increases in liver TG and circulating insulin with varying efficiency, but it did not prevent loss in adipose tissue mass. In the CLA+0.5% DHA group, the liver TG did not differ from those in the control group, but circulating insulin and HOMA-IR were 285% and 264%, respectively. In the CLA+1.5% DHA group, liver TG were 54% lower than those in the control group, but circulating insulin concentration and HOMA-IR did not differ between these two groups. CLA increased the expression of hepatic genes involved in fatty acid synthesis and decreased the expression of genes involved in fatty acid oxidation, and 1.5% DHA prevented changes in the expression of hepatic genes caused by CLA. Conclusions: Response of different tissues to CLA and DHA varied; CLA was more potent than DHA in altering depot fat and insulin concentrations.
