Identification of shellfish fatty acids and their effects on lipogenic enzymes

The fatty acids which are common to and characteristic of shellfish, were identified by mass spectrometry and NMR spectral analyses as being: octadecatetraenoioc acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, docosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid. When the fatty acids isolated by high performance liquid chromatography were separately intubated into rats, hepatic glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (EC, malic enzyme (EC and acetyl-CoA carboxylase (EC were reduced more effectively as compared with linoleic acid intubation. These enzymes were reduced most markedly by eicosapentaenoic acid-intubation. The fatty acids seem to be effective components in reduction of triacylglycerol and lipogenic enzyme levels in rats fed on shellfish.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
