Mice were fed pure trans11 octadecenoic acid (trans-vaccenic acid; TVA) to determine whether it is desaturated to cis9, trans11 octadecadienoic acid, a predominant isomer of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). In a preliminary trial, 12% of the TVA consumed during a 2-wk feeding period was recovered in the carcass as CLA. As a proportion of TVA in the tissues available for bioconversion, 48.8% was desaturated. We tested whether desaturation could be modified by supplementing no modifier, 0.5… CONTINUE READING
