Sphingomyelins and ceramides with very-long-chain PUFA are excluded from lowdensity, raft-like domains in differentiating spermatogenic cells
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2017-01-12)
Rat spermatogenic cells contain sphingomyelins (SM) and ceramides (Cer) with very long chain (VLC) PUFA, in nonhydroxylated (n-V) and 2-hydroxylated (h-V) forms. How these atypical species distribute among membrane fractions ...
Phylogenomic analysis of integral diiron membrane histidine motif-containing enzymes in ciliates provides insights into their function and evolutionary relationships
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2017-09)
The Integral Membrane Histidine Motif-containing Enzymes (IMHME) are a class of binuclear non-heme iron proteins widely distributed among prokaryotes and eukaryotes. They are characterized by a conserved tripartite motif ...
Microsomal and peroxisomal fatty acid oxidation in streptozotocin diabetic rat liver
Microsomal lauric acid hydroxylation and fatty acid peroxisomal β-oxidation were studied in hepatic subcellulant preparations from streptozotocin-induced diabetic and diabetic insulin-treated rats. The liver microsomes of ...
Effect of the degree of hydrogenation of fish oil on the enzymatic activity and on the fatty acid composition of hepatic microsomes from young and aged rats
By modifying the degree of hydrogenation of dietary fat, it is possible to modify the fatty acid composition and the biochemical activity of cellular tissues. The age can be another variable influencing these modifications. ...
Evaluation of chronic omega-3 fatty acids supplementation on behavioral and neurochemical alterations in 6-hydroxydopamine-lesion model of Parkinson`s disease
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTD, 2010)
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 PUFAs) have been widely associated to beneficial effects over different neuropathologies, but only a few studies associate them to Parkinson`s disease (PD). Rats were submitted ...

A Novel Sterol Desaturase-Like Protein Promoting Dealkylation of Phytosterols in Tetrahymena thermophila
(American Society For Microbiology, 2011-01)
The gene TTHERM_00438800 (DES24) from the ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila encodes a protein with three conserved histidine clusters, typical of the fatty acid hydroxylase superfamily. Despite its high similarity to sterol ...
