  • Linoleic and linolenic acids are precursors for the biosynthesis of prostaglandins (PG) and related compounds. In man augmented linoleic acid intake results in stimulation of PG-biosynthesis, for PG originating from the kidney a stimulation only is found for PGE2. Dietary linolenic acid inhibits PG biosynthesis to a tenfold lesser degree than eicosapentaenoic acid. Renal PGE2 is depressed by linolenic acid intake, while no effect is found for PGF2 alpha up to 8 energy% of linolenic acid supply… CONTINUE READING
