Expression of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LC-PUFA) biosynthesis genes during zebrafish Danio rerio early embryogenesis.

Abstract

Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) are essential in important physiological processes, many of which are particularly vital during embryonic development. This study investigated the expression of genes encoding enzymes involved in LC-PUFA biosynthesis, namely fatty acyl desaturase (Fad) and Elovl5- and Elovl2-like elongases, during early… (More)
