• fatty acids
  • Fatty acids are small building blocks that create types of fat such as sterols and triglycerides. (fitday.com)
  • Fatty acids, sterols and triglycerides all fall under the category of lipid. (fitday.com)
  • Fatty acids are simply chains of carbon and hydrogen that can join together to form larger molecules such as triglycerides, sterols, saturated and unsaturated fats which will interact in our bodies. (fitday.com)
  • A variety of healthy foods will provide you with the lipids including fatty acids, sterols and triglycerides you need for health. (fitday.com)
  • triglycerides
  • 1. A composition comprising a semi-refined fish oil, wherein the composition comprises less than about 2 mg of sterol per gram of composition, at least about 97% triglycerides, less than about 2% diglycerides, and less than about 1% monoglycerides and wherein the composition has a p-Anisidine value of from about 10 to about 25, as determined by ISO 6885:1998.

  • Delta24
  • The systematic name of this enzyme class is sterol:NADP+ Delta24-oxidoreductase. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other names in common use include sterol Delta24(28)-methylene reductase, and sterol Delta24(28)-reductase. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other names in common use include Delta24-methyltransferase, Delta24-sterol methyltransferase, zymosterol-24-methyltransferase, S-adenosyl-4-methionine:sterol Delta24-methyltransferase, SMT1, 24-sterol C-methyltransferase, S-adenosyl-L-methionine:Delta24(23)-sterol methyltransferase, and phytosterol methyltransferase.

  • desaturase
  • C-5 sterol desaturase couples sterol oxidation to the oxidation of NAD(P)H and the reduction of molecular oxygen. (wikipedia.org)
  • In plants such as Arabidopsis thaliana, C-5 sterol desaturase catalyzes the dehydrogenation of episterol and avenasterol in a pathway thought to lead to a variety of membrane components as well as a class of hormones called brassinosteroids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Based on its amino acid profile C-5 sterol desaturase appears to have four to five membrane-spanning regions, suggesting that it is a transmembrane protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • Consequently, in both the pathogenic fungus Candida albicans and model organism S. cerevisiae mutations in the gene encoding C-5 sterol desaturase (ERG3) allow the cell to avoid synthesizing the toxic sterol products and have been shown to confer azole resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • In at least one patient, a deficiency in C-5 sterol desaturase activity (termed lathosterolosis) was associated with multiple malformations, metal retardation, and liver disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Scientists have found that tomato plants engineered with the C-5 sterol desaturase from the mushroom Flammulina velutipes show improved drought tolerance and fungal pathogen resistance as well as increased iron and polyunsaturated fat content. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell membrane
  • Sterols are a critical part of digestion in the form of bile salts and also are found in the cell membrane, or outer wall of cells in the body. (fitday.com)
  • lipids
  • Once in the nucleus, SREBP can bind to specific DNA sequences (the sterol regulatory elements or SREs) that are found in the control regions of the genes that encode enzymes needed to make lipids. (wikipedia.org)
