How can you use “acyl” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The incorporation of 20:4n6 and 22:4n6 following feeding of the AA-rich FUNG diet, and the incorporation of 20:5n3, 22:5n3, and 22:6n3 following feeding of the EPA/DHA-rich FISH diet, into whole brain, hippocampal, and hepatic phospholipid (PL) pools (Table 1) was further evidence the diets were consumed, resulting in significant changes to PL acyl composition.

  • The finding of higher proportions of the high melting saturated fatty acids and lesser amounts of the PUFA with lower melting points in the red cell phospholipids of the SCD subjects relative to the controls prompted us to asses the overall impact of these differences on the relative fluidity of the acyl chains of the phospholipids from the red cells of the SCD patients and the controls by estimating the MMP of the phospholipids using the approach of Jensen and Patton [ 20 ] . The calculated MMP of the SCD subjects was significantly higher than for the controls, 29°C vs 24°C, p < 0.001.

  • PTM is the site for attachment of phosphopantetheine (the prosthetic group of acyl carrier proteins in some multienzyme complexes), PTS_HPR_SER is a serine phosphorylation site found in HPr (a protein in the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system in bacteria) and UIM (ubiquitin interaction motif) is a receptor for polyubiquitination of polypeptide chains.

  • Finally, the MP fractions were summed and 100 was subtracted from that sum to provide the estimate of the MMP of the acyl chains of the phospholipid preparation.

  • Although more work is required to examine this issue thoroughly, our results suggest that the large differences in potency between free fatty acids and fatty acyl coenzyme A esters seen using pNPP may not extend to all protein substrates.
