Concentrations of very long-chain fatty acid in whole blood are associated with cardiovascular risk factors in children.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Fatty acid metabolism has a close relationship with metabolic syndrome. Saturated very long-chain fatty acid (hexacosanoic acid; C26:0) was recently reported to be associated with cardiovascular risk factors in adults.
