BACKGROUND Palmitoleic acid has been shown to regulate adipokine expression and systemic metabolic homeostasis in animal studies. However, its association with human metabolic diseases remains controversial. OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate associations of erythrocyte palmitoleic acid with adipokines, inflammatory markers, and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in a Chinese population. DESIGN Erythrocyte fatty acids were measured in a population-based sample of 3107 men and women aged 50-70 y, for… CONTINUE READING
