Example sentences for: desaturation

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

  • With regard to the metabolism of fatty acids mentioned above, the activities of the enzymes that are responsible for the elongation and desaturation of the essential fatty acids to produce the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids may vary between SCD subjects and controls.

  • Numerous hepatic genes containing SRE promoters were regulated by LC-PUFA in the present experiments, including SREBP-1 itself (consistent with [ 35 36 ] ). Also regulated were genes involved in triacylglycerol synthesis (Gpam), FA synthesis and elongation (Acas1, Acly, FA synthase, Spot14, Elovl2; Elovl2 may speculatively contain an SRE as described by Moon and colleagues [ 35 ] ), FA desaturation (Scd1), gluconeogenesis (Pck1), cytochrome p450 metabolism (Cyp4a-10 and -14), FA transport (Cd36), cholesterol metabolism and transport (Fpps), and ketone body formation (mitochondrial Hmgcs2).

  • Feeding our diets affected various genes containing a PPRE, with roles in triacylglycerol synthesis (mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase, Gpam), FA oxidation (carnitine palmitoyl transferase, Cpt1; dienoyl CoA isomerase, Ech1), FA desaturation (stearoyl-coenzyme A desaturase, Scd1 or Δ9 desaturase), gluconeogenesis (cytosolic phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase 1, Pck1 or PEPCK; glucose-6-phosphatase, G6pc), cytochrome p450 metabolism (Cyp4a-10 and -14), FA transport (Cd36; FA binding protein, Fabp5), cholesterol metabolism and transport (apolipoprotein A4, Apoa4; apolipoprotein B-100, ApoB-100), and ketone body formation (mitochondrial 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A synthase 2, Hmgcs2).

  • Hepatic desaturation of LC-PUFA

  • In the present work, mice were fed control diets adequate in 18:2n6 and 18:3n3 but lacking LC-PUFA; or a diet enriched in fungal oil (FUNG) enriched in AA, the n6 elongation and desaturation product of 18:2n6; or a diet containing fish oil (FISH) enriched in 22:6n3 and 20:5n3, the major n3 LC-PUFA elongation and desaturation products of 18:3n3; or a diet containing both fungal oil and fish oil (FUNG+FISH).
