Possible Interaction: Copper and Fatty Acids, Monounsaturated

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Copper supplementation in the pig and rat and copper deficiency in the rat, mouse and human indicates that inadequate copper intake (… brindled mouse and in Menke's disease) impairs the ability to monounsaturate long chain saturated fatty acids and that, conversely, copper supplementation (greater than … increases monounsaturated fatty acids.

A positive effect on the fatty acid profile was found, as the saturated fatty acid (SFA) and monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) content improved when the copper concentration was higher than 0.1 mmol L−1, which can potentiate the production of high-quality biodiesel.
