  • For fatty acid labeling, cells in a 6 cm dish were incubated with 1 ml of DMEM containing 10% dialyzed fetal bovine serum, 5 mM sodium pyruvate, and [9,10- 3H]palmitic acid (1 mCi/ml) or [9,10- 3H]myristate (0.

  • In a recent study of Nigerian children with SCD, we determined the fatty acid composition of serum phospholipids and correlated fatty acid proportions with the phase angle [ 18 ] . The percentage of palmitic acid and oleic acid correlated inversely with phase angle, whereas, in contrast, three polyunsaturated fatty acids of the n-3 series (eicosapentaenoic, 20:5n-3; docosapentaenoic, 22:5n-3; and docosahexaenoic, 22:6n-3) were positively correlated with phase angle.

  • Of the major saturated fatty acids that were found to be significantly different between the phospholipids of the SCD patients and controls, only palmitic acid exhibited a significant inverse correlation with phase angle (p = 0.03).

  • However, the percentages of the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids derived from these two essential fatty acids were significantly decreased whereas the proportions of saturated fatty acids, namely oleic acid and palmitic acid, were significantly increased.

  • As shown in Table 2, the red cell phospholipids of the SCD subjects contained significantly higher proportions of the two major saturated fatty acids, palmitic acid (C16:0) and stearic acid (C18:0), than the controls.
