  • 18 carbon atoms, 2 double bonds, 6 carbon atoms beyond last double bond) was normal and 18:3 omega 6 was increased, but all subsequent omega 6 acids were subnormal (P less than 0.001), indicating impairment of chain elongation. (biomedsearch.com)
  • synthesis
  • Loss of polyunsaturated fatty acids and replacement by nonessential acids lowered mean chain length and raised mean melting point significantly, suggesting that lowered membrane fluidity was only partially compensated by endogenous synthesis of lower-melting, nonessential acids.

  • plasma
  • The liver converts unburned food metabolites into very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and secretes them into plasma where they are converted to intermediate density lipoproteins(IDL), which thereafter are converted to low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles and non-esterified fatty acids, which can affect other body cells.

  • blood
  • proBNP is subsequently cleaved between arginine-102 and serine-103 by a specific convertase (probably furin or corin) into NT-proBNP and the biologically active 32-amino acid polypeptide BNP-32, which are secreted into the blood in equimolar amounts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Short- and medium chain fatty acids are absorbed directly into the blood via intestine capillaries and travel through the portal vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • After a meal, some of the fatty acids taken up by the liver is converted into very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and again secreted into the blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • amino acid
  • ANP is a 28-amino acid peptide with a 17-amino acid ring in the middle of the molecule. (wikipedia.org)
  • ANP is closely related to BNP (brain natriuretic peptide) and CNP (C-type natriuretic peptide), which all share a similar amino acid ring structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • When the cells are stimulated, pro-ANP is released and converted to the 28-amino-acid C-terminal mature ANP on the cell surface by the cardiac transmembrane serine protease corin. (wikipedia.org)
  • BNP is synthesized as a 134-amino acid preprohormone (preproBNP), encoded by the human gene NPPB. (wikipedia.org)
  • carbon
  • Esterification of the hydroxyl group at carbon 3 with fatty/organic acids or carbohydrates results in plant sterol esters, i.e. oleates, ferulates and (acyl) glycosides. (wikipedia.org)
