In a previous modeling study we identified an angle iron-shaped conformation of docosahexaenoic acid and showed that an sn-1-stearoyl diacylglycerol (DG) that contained an sn-2-docosahexaenoyl group in this conformation could adopt a highly regular shape. In the present study we compared the properties of this DG with those of sn-1-stearoyl DGs that contained other unsaturated fatty acyl groups in the sn-2 position. The major findings were that: 1) sn-1-stearoyl DGs that contain polyenoic fatty… CONTINUE READING
