Dietary α-linolenic acid diminishes experimental atherogenesis and restricts T cell-driven inflammation

Abstract

AIMS Epidemiological studies report an inverse association between plant-derived dietary α-linolenic acid (ALA) and cardiovascular events. However, little is known about the mechanism of this protection. We assessed the cellular and molecular mechanisms of dietary ALA (flaxseed) on atherosclerosis in a mouse model. METHODS AND RESULTS Eight-week-old male… (More)
