AIM: Very long chain saturated fatty acid (VLCFA) levels in erythrocytes are associated with metabolic syndrome (MS). However, the relationship between levels of the VLCFA ligonoceric acid (C24:0) in erythrocytes and the atherogenic lipoprotein profiles and inflammatory state in MS remain unclear. METHODS: Based on the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) definition of MS, 195 apparently healthy males were assigned to either an MS group (n=38) or a non-MS group (n=157). Fatty acid composition of erythrocytes was determined by gas liquid chromatography. RESULTS: Erythrocytes from the MS group had a significantly higher level of C24:0 than cells from the non-MS group (4.06±0.48% versus 3.88±0.34%; p=0.03). C24:0 levels were significantly correlated with several components of MS. The C24:0 levels showed a significant negative correlation with LDL and HDL particle size. Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that C24:0 levels were independently correlated with LDL particle size after adjusting for age and each MS criterion. C24:0 levels were also positively correlated with log-transformed high-sensitivity CRP levels (p=0.04). CONCLUSION: C24:0 levels in erythrocytes are associated with specific atherogenic lipoprotein profiles and inflammation status in subjects with MS.
