We previously showed conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) inhibited TNF-alpha-induced monocyte (THP-1) adhesion to human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) in vitro which involved an increase in platelet activating factor (PAF). Here we show adhesion molecule (ADM) regulation by fatty acids and the differing role of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) activation in HUVEC and vascular smooth muscle cells (vSMC). CLA and omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) (FA) reduced TNF-alpha… CONTINUE READING
