Formation of 8,11,14-octadecatrienoic acid (18:3 n-4) from naturally occurring unique fatty acid, 9,12-hexadecadienoic acid (16:2 n-4), in animal cell cultures.

Abstract

9,12-Hexadecadienoic acid (16:2 n-4), present in small amounts in fish oils as a naturally occurring unique fatty acid, was incorporated into the phospholipids in rat liver BRL-3A cells to a similar extent as linoleic acid (18:2 n-6). 11,14-Octadecadienoic acid (18:2 n-4) and 8,11,14-octadecatrienoic acid (18:3 n-4) were detected in the cellular lipids of… (More)
