  1. 1. Enzymatic Synthesis of Mixed Acid Phospholipids

    Author : Dietlind Adlercreutz; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lysophosphatidylcholine; phosphatidylcholine; acyl migration; equilibrium; organic solvent; lipase; phospholipase; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Mixed acid phospholipids are valuable compounds, which are used mainly in membrane- and lipoprotein research and in liposome technology. The chemical synthesis of these special lipids is rather difficult and involves both toxic chemicals and harsh reaction conditions, which makes the products less attractive for medical and biological applications.

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. LIPASES AND PHOSPHOLIPASES IN PHOSPHOLIPID SYNTHESIS

    Author : Carmen Virto; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transphosphatidylation; acylation; vinyl ester; Phospholipid synthesis; lysophospholipid; kinetics; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : The synthesis of phospholipids with defined fatty acid and polar head composition catalysed by lipases and phospholipases was investigated. Lipases from Rhizopus arrhizus and Candida antarctica were used for the direct acylation of DL-a-glycerophosphate and L-a-glycerophosphatidylcholine, with different fatty acids. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on the atherogenicity of apoB-containing lipoproteins in type 2 diabetes

    Author : Camilla Pettersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Type 2 diabetes; metabolic syndrome; atherosclerosis; VLDL; LDL; secretory phospholipase A2 group V; inflammation; complement; apolipoprotein; lysozyme;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and the metabolic syndrome (MetS), two conditions that are rapidly increasing in prevalence, as well as the dyslipoproteinemia and subclinical inflammation characteristic for these conditions, are associated with an increased risk for developing and dying of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The aim of this thesis was to investigate possible atherogenic properties of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in T2D and MetS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enzymatic synthesis of lipids containing omega-3 fatty acids

    Author : Ann-Marie Lyberg; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; enzymologi; Proteiner; enzymology; Proteins; Enzymes; DHA; EPA; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are omega-3 fatty acids, which have health promoting effects. Since they are highly prone to oxidation, they should be protected, in particular DHA. READ MORE
