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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Warensjö; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonathan Cedernaes; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Emma Svensk; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

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

    University dissertation from Department of Internal Medcine, University Hospital of Lund

    Author : Li Zhou; [1999]
    Keywords : 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.

  5. 5. On the way of making plants smell like moths - a synthetic biology approach

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Author : Bao-Jian Ding; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; moth pheromone; transcriptome; fatty acyl desaturase; fatty acyl reductase; acetyltransferase; chain shortening; chain elongation; heterologous expression; synthetic biology; plant expression;

    Abstract : Moth caterpillars are major agricultural pests in many parts of the world. In general female moths attract male mates with their pheromone over long distance. Most of the described moth pheromones belong to the same class of chemical compounds, fatty acid derivatives that are produced de novo in the pheromone gland. READ MORE
