Conjugated linoleic acid is a mixture of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid with two conjugated unsaturated double bonds at various carbon positions in the fatty acid chain. An increasin g interest on CLA is attributed to its potential health benefits such as anticarcinoge nic, antiatherogenic, antidiabetic and antiadipogenic effects. More than a dozen isomers of CLA are present in ruminant fat. Of the two isomers known for their physiological importance, c-9, t-11 is the most… Expand

ABSTRACT The conjugated linoleic acid is one of the many lipid molecules that had proven to be beneficial to the human health. Conjugated linoleic acid is reported to have anticancer andExpand
Advances in Research on cis-9, trans-11 Conjugated Linoleic Acid: A Major Functional Conjugated Linoleic Acid Isomer
TLDR
An overview of the available data on cis-9, trans-11 CLA, including its isomer-specific effects, biosynthesis, in vivo/in vitro research models, quantification, and the factors influencing its content in ruminant products are provided. Expand

TLDR
Evidence suggests that c9, t11-CLA is responsible for the anti-inflammatory effect attributed to CLA while t10, t12-CLA appears to be responsible for anti-adipogenic effects. Expand
Derivatization of fatty acids and its application for conjugated linoleic acid studies in ruminant meat lipids
Conjugated linoleic acid (c9, t11 CLA) is a dietary fatty acid produced mainly by ruminant animals and exhibits promising health-promoting biological effects. For lipid fatty acid compositionExpand
The Metabolic Effects of Conjugated Linoleic Acids (CLA) in Chickens: A Review
TLDR
There are inconsistent reports of the effects of dietary CLA on chicken’s performance; however, the majority of previous reports cite anti-lipogenic effects of CLA, so diets could be formulated to increase n-3 fatty acid (FA) concentration in chicken meat by feeding n- 3 FAs as a replacement for n-6 FA rich ingredients.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid in Rumen Liquor: Their Relation with Other Carbon 18 Fatty Acids and Rumen pH
TLDR
Assessment of the relationship between CLAs and other carbon 18 fatty acids and rumen pH of cattle slaughtered for meat consumption indicated that CLAs production in theRuminal pH was positively correlated with the amount of c9, t11 and total CLA and negatively correlated with t10, c12 CLA isomer.

Effects of nutrition on the conjugated linoleic acid content of milk
TLDR
The CLA levels in the milk from both cow breeds on both production systems were on the low side, but within the range of reported values. Expand
Influences of Conjugated Linoleic Acid on Poultry Products
TLDR
Conjugated linoleic acid has a potential role in the prevention of cancer tumors of the skin, breast, stomach and intestine and attempts to enrich poultry production via CLA as an appropriate method for improving human nutrition by organic sources will cause the useful results. Expand

In 1979, a research group from the University of WisconsinMadison detected a compound with anti-mutagenic activity in ground beef extract (Pariza and Hargraves, 1985); because of its structuralExpand

TLDR
Meat samples from different animal species were characterised for their contents in c9,t11 and t10,c12 CLA and provided information to estimate the average daily intake of CLA from meats in an Italian cohort, which can be used in epidemiological studies. Expand

Modulation of lipid metabolism and vitamin A by conjugated linoleic acid.
TLDR
A regular intake of CLA, or/and vaccenic acid as its precursor, should work as an excellent preventive agent by modulating lipid metabolism in target tissues thus conferring protection against the attack of insults of different type. Expand
Antimutagenic and some other effects of conjugated linoleic acid
TLDR
Since CLA is derived from the milk of ruminant animals and is found primarily in their meat and in products derived from their milk there is a concerted world-wide effort to increase CLA content of milk by dietary means. Expand
Conjugated linoleic acid: an anticarcinogenic fatty acid present in milk fat
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a mixture of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid containing conjugated unsaturation. The cis-9, trans-11-octadecadienoic acid isomer is produced inExpand
Conjugated Linoleic Acid Is Synthesized Endogenously in Lactating Dairy Cows by Δ9-Desaturase
TLDR
Results demonstrate that endogenous synthesis of CLA from trans-11 18:1 represented the primary source of CLA in milk fat of lactating cows. Expand
Conjugated linoleic acid is synthesized endogenously in lactating dairy cows by Delta(9)-desaturase.

Results demonstrate that endogenous synthesis of CLA from trans-11 18:1 represented the primary source of CLA in milk fat of lactating cows. Expand
Identification of the conjugated linoleic acid isomer that inhibits milk fat synthesis.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that trans-10,cis-12 CLA is the isomer responsible for inhibition of milk fat synthesis, and de novo synthesized fatty acids were extensively reduced. Expand
Trans-vaccenic acid is desaturated to conjugated linoleic acid in mice.
TLDR
Similar bioconversion of TVA in humans would increase current estimates of CLA available for the general population by 6- to 10-fold. Expand
Observations on the pattern on biohydrogenation of esterified and unesterified linoleic acid in the rumen.
TLDR
Comparisons are made with the changes which occurred in the fatty acid compositions of rumen free fatty acids and plasma triglycerides of sheep given intraruminal infusions of linoleic acid or maize oil to suggest the possibility that biohydrogenation of 18:2 derived from the triglyceride proceeds by a different pathway from that of18:2 presented as the free acid.

Conjugated linoleic acid
TLDR
The recent evidence from animal studies for anti-tumourigenic, anti-lipogenic and anti-atherogenic effects of CLA are summarized and may open new avenues of research in several normal and disease states. Expand
The role of Δ9-desaturase in the production of cis-9, trans-11 CLA
TLDR
Ex vivo endogenous synthesis was the major source of cis-9, trans-11 CLA in milk fat of lactating cows and quantified its importance by increasing substrate supply using partially hydrogenated vegetable oil (PHVO) as a source of trans- 11 C18:1 and blocking endogenous synthesis using sterculic oil (SO) asA source of cyclopropene fatty acids which specifically inhibit Δ9-desaturase.
