Decrease in adhesion of cells cultured in polyunsaturated fatty acids.


The addition of long chain unsaturated fatty acids (linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids) to BHK cells reduces the cell to substrate adhesion, causes morphological changes and alters the cellular growth properties. The new characteristics are similar to those of transformed cells. The data indicate that the effects are probably due to actual changes in… (More)
