  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. Interaction between dietary factors and genetic risk for lipoprotein traits and cardiovascular disease

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Sophie Hellstrand; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diet; polyunsaturated fatty acids; diet quality index; fatty acid desaturase; blood lipids; lipoproteins; polymorphisms; genetic risk score; gene-diet interaction; cohort; epidemiology; cardiovascular disease;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Sambanden mellan kostens sammansättning och risk för hjärt-kärlsjukdom är i många fall oklara. En kost rik på fleromättade fettsyror har ansetts kunna ge skydd mot hjärt-kärlsjukdom, men resultaten från olika studier är motstridiga. READ MORE

  4. 4. Early steps of Eicosanoid precursor absorption and tissue distribution

    University dissertation from Gastroenterology Division, Dept Internal Medicine, University Hospital, S-221-85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Tor Melin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lipids; mebran; steroider; Lipider; steroids; membranes; Gastro-enterology; Gastroenterologi;

    Abstract : Eicosanoids are important for a wide range of physiological and pathophysiological processes.How their essential fatty acid precursors are absorbed and tissue distributed is not well charactherized. When given orally to rats, arachidonic acid (20:4) was retained in the small intestine to a larger extent than linoleic acid (18:2). READ MORE

  5. 5. Influence of oilseed supplementation on ruminant meat and milk with emphasis on fatty acids

    University dissertation from Gastroenterology Division, Dept Internal Medicine, University Hospital, S-221-85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Tyler Turner; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In the human diet, long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA, ≥ C20) are supplied almost exclusively from animal sources. Red meat represents a significant source of LC-PUFA in many areas of the world. READ MORE
