Effects of fish oil and n-3 fatty acids on the regulation of Δ9-fatty acid desaturase mRNA and -activity in rat liver

Abstract

This study was designed to study the effects of treatment with dietary fish oil, or with long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, on A9-desaturase in rat liver. The desaturase activity was measured in isolated microsomes in parallel with measurements of liver content of Ag-desaturase mRNA. Fish-oil diet [20% (w/w) of dietary tat] led to 85% decrease in… (More)
