The 3-thia fatty acids, tetradecylthioacetic acid and 3,10-dithiadicarboxylic acid are mitochondrion and peroxisome proliferators. Administration of these promotes an increased transport of endogenous fatty acids to these organelles and a higher capacity of beta-oxidation. Administration of 3-thia fatty acids to rats resulted in a significant decrease of the hepatic level of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (17-24%) and especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (40-80%) accompanied by increased gene… CONTINUE READING
