Interrelationship between the dietary regulation of fatty acid synthesis and the fatty acyl-CoA desaturases


In this paper we present further evidence for the close control of fatty acid synthetase and stearoyl-CoA desaturase. Furthermore, we have established that whereas dietary palmitic acid may influence the activity of this desaturase but not of fatty acid synthetase, dietary linoleic acid appears to control both these enzymes. Finally, we have studied the… (More)
