  • Long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) are not only important metabolites but contribute to many cellular functions including activation of protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms and nuclear transcription factors such as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAPs). To assert their diverse effects LCFAs have first to traverse the plasma membrane, a process that can occur either through diffusion or be mediated by proteins. Considerable evidence has accumulated to show that in addition to a diffusional… CONTINUE READING
