Contrasting effects of arachidonic acid and docosahexaenoic acid membrane incorporation into cardiomyocytes on free cholesterol turnover.


The preservation of a constant pool of free cholesterol (FC) is critical to ensure several functions of cardiomyocytes. We investigated the impact of the membrane incorporation of arachidonic acid (C20:4 ω6, AA) or docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6 ω3, DHA) as ω6 or ω3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) on cholesterol homeostasis in primary cultures of neonatal… (More)
