Groups of rats bearing Morris minimal deviation hepatoma 7288CTC were fed a fat-free diet supplemented with either 0.5% safflower oil (diet A), 15% safflower oil or free acids (diets Band C), or 15% safflower oil or free safflower fatty acids (diet D) for 4 weeks. A group of normal rats was also fed diet D. Triglycerides, cholesteryl esters,(More)
Dietary methyl-2-hexadecynoate appeared to inhibit fatty acid elongation in intact animals (Wood, R., Lee, T., and Gershon, H. (1980) Lipids 15, 141-150). Data from the present in vitro studies indicate that the microsomal elongation system is inhibited preferentially to the mitochondrial system. A series of metabolic acyl-CoA thioester intermediates has(More)
The previously unidentified neutral lipid present in tumor tissues has been isolated from Ehrlich ascites cells and unequivocally identified as a lipid class of glyceryl ether diesters containing various degrees of unsaturation, and ranging in approximate molecular weight from 760 to 990. The glyceryl ether diester fraction was shown to be free from neutral(More)
Phospholipids from homogenate, nuclei, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum (ER), plasma membrane (PM), and cytosol of liver and hepatoma 7288CTC (from inbred male BUF rats) were analyzed for their concentrations, fatty acid compositions of individual lipid classes, and levels of octadecenoate positional isomers. The phospholipid concentrations of hepatoma(More)
The sources of octadecenoic acid (18:1) and the importance of the stearoyl-CoA desaturase system in maintaining elevated levels of this fatty acid in the Morris hepatoma 7288C have been investigated. Sterculic acid, an inhibitor of the stearoyl-CoA desaturase system, when added to the culture medium, inhibited the production of monoenoic fatty acids through(More)
Previous studies from this laboratory have established that acquired resistance of murine L1210 leukemia cells to L-phenylalanine mustard (L-PAM) and other alkylating agents is accompanied by a two-to threefold elevation in their glutathione (GSH) concentration (Biochem. Pharm. 31:121). In an attempt to gain insight into the mechanism by which resistant(More)
