Incorporation of sciadonic acid into cellular phospholipids reduces pro-inflammatory mediators in murine macrophages through NF-κB and MAPK signaling pathways.


Sciadonic acid (SCA; Δ5,11,14-20:3), a non-methylene-interrupted polyunsaturated fatty acid (NMIFA), can substitute for arachidonic acid (AA) and reduce prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) synthesis in macrophages. However, little is known about how SCA exerts its anti-inflammatory effects. The objectives of this study were to purify SCA from seeds of Podocarpus nagi… (More)
