The distributions of fatty acids in subcutaneous-adipose-tissue aspirates and their relation to intake as assessed by a semiquantitative food-frequency questionnaire were investigated in 1 15 postmenopausal US women free from cancer. Percentages of fatty acids in adipose tissue were significantly correlated with the percentage of total fat intake for polyunsaturated fatty acids (Spearman correlation = 0.37), n-3 fatty acids of marine origin (Spearman correlation = 0.48), and trans fatty acids…

Subcutaneous adipose-tissue fatty acids and vitamin E in humans: relation to diet and sampling site.

The influence of diet and sampling site on subcutaneous adipose-tissue fatty acid composition and vitamin E content was examined in 20 healthy subjects and the content of n - 3 (omega-3) fatty acids in adipose tissue was shown to influence adiposetissue vitamin E negatively.

Relationship of diet to the fatty acid composition of human adipose tissue structural and stored lipids.

Although diet was found to relate to fatty acid composition, the structural lipids in human adipose tissue appear more resistant to compositional change than stored triglycerides.

Relationship between the fatty acid composition of the diet and that of the subcutaneous adipose tissue in individual human subjects.

Analysis of subcutaneous fat biopsies merits consideration as a simple and reproducible measure of the dietary fatty acid composition of free-living individuals.

Validity of the fatty acid composition of subcutaneous fat tissue microbiopsies as an estimate of the long-term average fatty acid composition of the diet of separate individuals.

The weakening effect of the large day-to-day variation in within-person intake on the correlation between a short-term assessment of the nutrient intake of an individual and a biochemical indicator of long-term nutritional status is demonstrated.

Fatty acid composition of adipose tissue in humans: differences between subcutaneous sites.

The results clearly show that the fatty acid composition of the two subcutaneous fat depots differ significantly and it is concluded that abdominal fat is more saturated than buttock fat.

Fatty acid composition of the fat in selected food items with emphasis on trans components1

The fat in 220 samples from 35 food types has been analyzed for component fatty acids by gas liquid chromatography on a 15-m capillary column coated with SP-2340. The methodology permitted the

Studies of arteriosclerosis in Japanese and American men. I. Comparison of fatty acid composition of adipose tissue.

The proportions of fatty acids in lipids of subcutaneous adipose tissue was compared in closely age-matched, urban men from two populations with a great difference in mortality from arteriosclerosis,

The relationship of dietary fat to plasma lipid levels as studied by factor analysis of adipose tissue fatty acid composition in a free-living population of middle-aged American men.

The conclusion is that adipose tissue composition and, by implication, the type of dietary fat intake, explains only a small proportion (1-19%) of the variance in plasma lipids in normolipidemic subjects.

Composition of lipids in human serum and adipose tissue during prolonged feeding of a diet high in unsaturated fat.

Elderly institutionalized men were assigned at random to two groups, one of which received a conventional diet while the other was fed a diet in which the major modification was substitution of
