Polyunsaturated fatty acid-phospholipid remodeling and inflammation.
Québec, Canada. In Curr Opin Endocrinol Diabetes Obes, Apr 2015
The expression of specific acyl-CoA synthetase, lysophospholipid acyltransferase and phospholipase A2 isotypes has recently been shown to have an impact on membrane PUFA content, on the production of lipid mediators and on inflammation.
Microbial production of short-chain alkanes.
Taejŏn, South Korea. In Nature, 2013
A modified thioesterase was used to convert short-chain fatty acyl-ACPs to the corresponding FFAs, which were then converted to SCAs by the sequential reactions of E. coli fatty acyl-CoA synthetase, Clostridium acetobutylicum fatty acyl-CoA reductase and Arabidopsis thaliana fatty aldehyde decarbonylase.
