Fatty acids are known as modulators of the vasoactive properties of the vessel wall and can influence the physical and functional properties of cell membrane. The membrane-bound enzyme Na,K-ATPase plays a central role in endothelial function such as vasoconstriction. In a previous study, we have shown that omega3 fatty acids inhibited Na,K-ATPase activity in human endothelial cells. As Mediterranean diet is known to protect from cardiovascular diseases, we have investigated the effects of Omegacoeur, a Mediterranean nutritional complement consisting of omega3, omega6, omega9 fatty acids, garlic and basil, on Na,K-ATPase activity in human endothelial cells (HUVECs). Cells were incubated for 18 hr with pure lecithin liposomes or Omegacoeur-enriched emulsions (4 mg lecithin/ml). Na,K-ATPase and 5'-nucleotidase activities were determined using coupled assay methods on microsomal fractions obtained from HUVECs. Cell fatty acid composition was evaluated by gas chromatography after extraction of lipids and fatty acids methylation. The results showed that Omegacoeur (0.1 mM) increased Na,K-ATPase activity by 40% without changes in 5'-nucleotidase activity. Cells incubated with Omegacoeur preferentially incorporated linoleic acid. Therefore, linoleic acid or others constituents of Omegacoeur could be responsible of the stimulation of the Na,K-ATPase activity that might be related to changes in endothelial membrane fluidity.
