Specific effect of arachidonic acid on inducible nitric oxide synthase mRNA expression in human osteoblastic cells.

A specific modulatory effect of PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids) on gene expression of some cytokines involved in bone remodelling has been reported previously. In particular, although a direct action of AA (arachidonic acid) on bone cytokine gene expression has been shown in human osteoblastic cells, OA (oleic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) were… CONTINUE READING
