Possible Interaction: Fatty Acids, Monounsaturated and Long Chain Fatty Acid

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Many patients with x-linked ALD have benefitted from the supplementation of the diet with long chain monounsaturated fatty acids like erucic acid or oleic acid with the simultaneous restriction of very long chain fatty acids.
Annals of medicine  •  1992  |  View Paper
The addition of monounsaturated fatty acids including oleic acid and erucic acid specifically lowered the formation rate of VLFA without any significant effect on degradation activities of VLFA both in ALD and control fibroblasts.
The results suggest that the mechanism of decrease of VLFA by administration of monounsaturated fatty acids is based on the inhibition of fatty acid elongation activity.
