Conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs) are biologically active lipid compounds exerting anti-atherogenic actions in vivo without exact knowledge about the underlying mechanisms. Recently, CLAs were shown to lower the release of vasoactive prostanoids from vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) which play a central role in atherosclerosis. Since SMCs from different vascular locations were shown to exert differential actions in response to a common stimulus, the present study aimed to explore potential… 
Metabolism and actions of conjugated linoleic acids on atherosclerosis-related events in vascular endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells.
TLDR
It can be concluded that CLAs exert several beneficial actions including inhibition of inflammatory and vasoactive mediator release from ECs and SMCs, which may help explain the anti-atherogenic effect of CLAs observed in vivo.
Influence of conjugated linoleic acids on functional properties of vascular cells
TLDR
Results from in vitro studies dealing with the effects of CLA isomers and CLA mixtures on functional properties of cells of the vascular wall, such as endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and monocyte-derived macrophages, which are amongst the major cells contributing to atherosclerotic lesion development are summarized.
Conjugated linoleic acid isomers inhibit platelet-derived growth factor-induced NF-κB transactivation and collagen formation in human vascular smooth muscle cells
TLDR
CLA isomers inhibit PDGF-stimulated collagen production by vascular SMCs, which is considered to be a hallmark of atherosclerosis, in a PPARγ-dependent manner.
Cis-9, trans-11-conjugated linoleic acid but not its precursor trans-vaccenic acid attenuate inflammatory markers in the human colonic epithelial cell line Caco-2
TLDR
It is established that TVA treatment can alter SCD desaturation indices and induce compositional changes in the fatty acid profile of the Caco-2 cell model of the human intestinal epithelium but this is not associated with functional effects on markers of the inflammatory response.
Effects of 9cis,11trans and 10trans,12cis CLA on osteoclast formation and activity from human CD14+ monocytes
TLDR
9,11 CLA inhibits osteoclast formation and activity from human cells, suggesting that this isomer may prevent bone resorption in humans.
Trans-10, cis-12-conjugated linoleic acid modulates NF-κB activation and TNF-α production in porcine peripheral blood mononuclear cells via a PPARγ-dependent pathway.
TLDR
Results suggest that t10c12-CLA can modulate TNF-α production and NF-κB activation by a PPARγ-dependent pathway in porcine PBMC.
Role of Free Fatty Acids in Physiological Conditions and Mitochondrial Dysfunction
TLDR
Understanding of FFA functions in the body is crucial for developing new therapeutic strategies against several metabolic disorders, and a review presents information on broad range of FFAs actions of prime importance for physiological processes.
