  1. 1. Fatty Acid Desaturase Activities in Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiovascular Disease : Special Reference to Stearoyl-CoA-Desaturase and Biomarkers of Dietary Fat

    Author : Eva Warensjö; Ulf Risérus; Bengt Vessby; Tommy Cederholm; David Laaksonen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Nutrition; Fatty acids; Dietary fat; Biomarker; Metabolic Syndrome; Mortality; Obesity; Insulin Sensitivity; Epidemiology; Estimated desaturase activities; Stearoyl-CoA-desaturase; delta-6-desaturase; delta-5-desaturase; Single Nucleotide Polymorphism; Dietary Intervention; Rapeseed oil; Saturated fat; SCD1; Näringslära;

    Abstract : The development of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiovascular diseases have been suggested to be influenced more by the quality than the amount of dietary fat. The FA composition of serum lipids may be used as biomarkers of dietary fat quality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Intestinal Gene Expression Profiling and Fatty Acid Responses to a High-fat Diet

    Author : Jonathan Cedernaes; Helgi B Schiöth; Robert Fredriksson; Anders Jacobsson; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) regulates nutrient uptake, secretes hormones and has a crucial gut flora and enteric nervous system. Of relevance for these functions are the G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and the solute carriers (SLCs). READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic engineering of Yarrowia lipolytica for the sustainable production of food oils

    Author : Oliver Konzock; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : tolerance; cocoa butter; filamentation; yeast; RNA-seq; triacyclglycerols; desaturase; hydrolysate;

    Abstract : The human population and its demand for food oils is constantly growing. However, increasing food oil production currently requires the deforestation of mostly tropical rainforests to allow the plantation of oil crops. READ MORE

  4. 4. C. elegans PAQR-2 ‒ A Regulator of Membrane Homeostasis

    Author : Emma Svensk; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : PAQR; LRRIG; glucose; membrane fluidity; desaturase; homeoviscous adaptation;

    Abstract : The progestin and adipoQ receptor (PAQR) protein family is characterized by a 7-transmembrane domain, and a topology reversed that of G-protein coupled receptors, i.e. the N-terminus resides in the cytoplasm. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sources of Arachidonic Acid in Platelets, Bone, Marrow and Gastrointestinal Tract

    Author : Li Zhou; Lund Medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Phospholipids; Megakaryocyte; Lysophosphatidylcholine; Lipoproteins; Linoleic acid; Intralipid; Interconversion; Gastrointestinal tract; Plasma free fatty acids; Fasting; Dietary fatty acids; Desaturase; Cholesterol; Chylomicron remnant; Chylomicron; Arachidonic acid; Bone marrow; Platelets; Protein S; Prothrombin; Triglycerides.; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Abstract : This study investigates pathways by which the eicosanoid precursor pools in the platelets, bone marrow and the gastrointestinal (GI) mucosa are acquired and regulated, and in this context some aspects on the interaction between triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins and platelets. 1.
