Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Docosahexaenoic Acid



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

However, the presence of ethanol in the perfusate at a concentration of 2 mg/ml significantly reduced (P<0.01) the absolute rate of transfer of the two n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, alphaLN and DHA.

These data demonstrate that DHA , versus arachidonic acid, is particularly vulnerable to oxidative damage in ethanol withdrawal.

Previously, we have shown in C6 glioma cells that ethanol inhibits the accumulation of PS caused by DHA supplementation.
We found that Neuro 2A cells exposed to ethanol accumulated considerably less PS in response to the DHA enrichment and were less effective at phosphorylating Akt and suppressing caspase‐3 activity under serum‐starved or staurosporine‐treated conditions.
