The purpose of this study was to examine whether n-3 PUFA intake affects n-3 and n-6 FA levels in plasma and red blood cells as well as omega-3 index in old male and female spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and healthy rats. Plasma linoleic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid increased due to n-3 PUFA intake in SHR and healthy rats. Comparing to healthy rats the(More)
Polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids (omega-3 PUFA) are important components of cell membrane affecting its function and their deficiency is deleterious to health. We have previously shown that spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) are prone to life-threatening arrhythmias that are reduced by omega-3 PUFA intake. Purpose of this study was to explore plasma(More)
The role of cis-vaccenic acid (18:1n-7) in the reduction of unsaturated fatty acids toxicity was investigated in baker’s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The quadruple mutant (QM, dga1Δ lro1Δ are1Δ are2Δ) deficient in enzymes responsible for triacylglycerol and steryl ester synthesis has been previously shown to be highly sensitive to exogenous unsaturated(More)
In the original publication of the article, the Figs. 3, 4, 5 and 6 were swapped and published incorrectly. It is now corrected. The correct orders of Figs. 3, 4, 5 and 6 are given below. Fig. 3 Ability to release FA prevents production of cis-vaccenic acid in QM cells. Cells were grown 48 h in YNB complete liquid media and FA content in cells and(More)
