Trans 18-carbon monoenoic fatty acid has distinct effects from its isomeric cis fatty acid on lipotoxicity and gene expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.


Epidemiological studies have suggested that an excess intake of trans-unsaturated fatty acids increases the risk of coronary heart disease. However, the mechanisms of action of trans-unsaturated fatty acids in eukaryotic cells remain unclear. Since the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae can grow using fatty acids as the sole carbon source, it is a… (More)
