Different metabolism of saturated and unsaturated long chain plasma free fatty acids by intestinal mucosa of rats

Abstract

During fat absorption, unsaturated long chain fatty acids are esterified at a higher rate than saturated fatty acids of similar chain length. This phenomenon has been attributed to differences in the binding affinity of fatty acids to a cytosolic fatty acid-binding protein. As intestinal mucosa utilizes plasma free fatty acids as well, we investigated… (More)
