    Abstract : Fatty acids are important regulators in the control of mammalian energy homeostasis. They are ingested in the diet but a significant amount are also endogenously produced by de novo lipogenesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Endocannabinoid metabolism the impact of inflammatory factors and pharmacological inhibitors

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Abstract : The endocannabinoid (eCB) system is an endogenous signaling system consisting of ligands (referred to as endocannabinoids, eCBs), receptors and metabolic enzymes. The eCB system is involved in homeostatic control of a variety of biological functions such as neuronal signaling, mood, appetite and pathological conditions such as pain, inflammation and tumour progression.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish I alla flercelliga organismer behövs utbyte av information mellan cellerna, som bygger upp kroppen. För detta ändamål är cellerna försedda med små antenner, som kan ta emot signaler och kallas därför receptorer. Receptorer kan vara uppbyggda på olika sätt. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dietary fat quality influences the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A low-grade inflammation is suggested to contribute to the disease development, often accompanied by obesity. Whereas n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have been considered anti-inflammatory, n-6 PUFA have been proposed to act pro-inflammatory. READ MORE
