Palmitic acid (PA) is the most abundant saturated fatty acid in human milk, where it is heavily concentrated in the sn-2-position (termed beta palmitate, BPA) and as such is conserved in all women, regardless of their diet or ethnicity, indicating its physiological and metabolic importance. We hypothesized that BPA improves the efficiency of nutrition-induced catch up growth as compared to sn-1,3 PA, which is present in vegetable oil. Pre-pubertal male rats were subjected to a 17 days food restriction followed by re-feeding for nine days with 1,3 PA or BPA-containing diets...

Using the classical emulsified system and the monomolecular film technique, the substrate specificity of recombinant Gibberella zeae lipase (rGZEL) that originates from Gibberella zeae was characterized in detail. Under the emulsified reaction system, both phospholipase and glycolipid hydrolytic activities were observed, except for the predominant lipase activity. The optimum conditions for different activity exhibition were also determined. Compared with its lipase activity, a little higher ratio of glycolipid hydrolytic activity (0...

We present a complete methodology to consistently estimate redox potentials strictly from first principles, without any experimental input. The methodology is based on (i) ab initio molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, (ii) all-atom explicit solvation, (iii) the two-phase thermodynamic (2PT) model and (iv) the use of electrostatic potentials as references for the absolute electrochemical scale. We apply the approach presented to compute reduction potentials of the following redox couples: Cr(+2/+3), V(+2/+3), Ru(NH3)6(+2/+3), Sn(+2/+4), Cu(+1/+2), FcMeOH(0/+1) and Fe(+2/+3) (in aqueous solution) and Fc(0/+1) (in acetonitrile)...

BACKGROUND: Photosynthetic oleaginous microalgae are considered promising feedstocks for biofuels. The marine microalga, Nannochloropsis oceanica, has been attracting ever-increasing interest because of its fast growth, high triacylglycerol (TAG) content, and available genome sequence and genetic tools. Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) catalyzes the last and committed step of TAG biosynthesis in the acyl-CoA-dependent pathway. Previous studies have identified 13 putative DGAT-encoding genes in the genome of N...

Microbial oils (MOs) have gained widespread attention due to their functional lipids and health promoting properties. In this study, 1,3-dioleoyl-2-arachidonoylglycerol-rich structured lipids (SLs) were produced from MO and oleic acid (OA) via solvent-free acidolysis catalyzed by Lipozyme RM IM. Under the optimal conditions, the content of unsaturated fatty acids (UFAs) increased from 60.63 to 84.00%, while the saturated fatty acids (SFAs) content decreased from 39.37 to 16.00% at sn-1,3 positions in SLs. Compared with MO, arachidonic acid (ARA) content at the sn-2 position of SLs accounted for 49...

Plasma n-3 fatty acids are important as the supplying pool of n-3 fatty acids to various tissues including the brain, although the relationship between dietary n-3 fatty acids and their molecular species in the plasma are not fully clarified. We investigated the intestinal absorption of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) derived from fish roe phospholipid (Roe-PL) and compared it with fish oil triacylglycerol and free DHA using unanesthetized lymph-cannulated rats. The DHA absorption from intraduodenally administered three samples were not significantly different, whereas Roe-PL administration resulted in a significantly higher level of DHA in the phospholipid fraction than the other two samples administrations...

Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) belongs to class of lipolytic enzymes (EC 3.1.1.4). Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and free fatty acids (FFAs) are the products of PLA2 catalyzed hydrolysis of phosphoglycerides at sn-2 position. LPA and FFA that act as second mediators involved in the development and maturation of plants and animals. Mining of flax genome identified two phospholipase A2 encoding genes, viz., LusPLA 2 I and LusPLA 2 II (Linum usitatissimum secretory phospholipase A2). Molecular simulation of LusPLA2s with already characterized plant sPLA2s revealed the presence of conserved motifs and signature domains necessary to classify them as secretory phospholipase A2...

Gastrointestinal tolerance and fat and calcium (Ca) absorption are different between breast-fed (BF) and formula-fed (FF) infants. Certain components and/or structural particularities in human milk (HM), can contribute to favorable outcomes in BF infants. In HM, the long-chain saturated fatty acid (LCSFA) palmitic acid has a different stereospecific distribution (sn-2 position) compared to most infant formula (IF) (primarily sn-1, 3 positions), which may contribute to unfavorable outcomes. Evidence suggests palmitic acid is important in the formation of stool FA-mineral (or FA-Ca) soaps, associated with harder stools in FF infants...

RlmN is a radical S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) enzyme that catalyzes the C2 methylation of adenosine 2503 (A2503) in 23S rRNA and adenosine 37 (A37) in several Escherichia coli transfer RNAs (tRNA). The catalytic reaction of RlmN is distinctly different from that of typical SAM-dependent methyltransferases that employs an SN 2 mechanism, but follows a ping-pong mechanism which involves the intermediate methylation of a conserved cysteine residue. Recently, the x-ray structure of a key intermediate in the RlmN reaction has been reported, allowing us to perform combined quantum mechanics and molecular mechanics (QM/MM) calculations to delineate the reaction details of RlmN at atomic level...

The enzyme phospholipase A2 (PLA2) is overexpressed in the inflamed intestine in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients, and in this work we aimed to exploit PLA2 as a prodrug-activating enzyme for a novel PL-drug conjugate, thereby liberating the free drug specifically in the targeted diseased tissue(s). The proposed prodrug contains a drug moiety covalently bound through a linker to the sn-2 position of a phospholipid (PL). The NSAID diclofenac was used as model molecule, and four different linker lengths (2, 4, 6 and 8 -CH2 units) were studied...

RATIONALE: The position of C=C within fatty acyl chains affects the biological function of lipids. Ozone induced dissociation-mass spectrometry (OzID-MS) has great potential in determination of lipid double bond position, but has only been implemented on low resolution ion trap mass spectrometers. In addition, most of the OzID-MS experiments carried out so far were focused on the sodiated adducts of lipids, fragmentation of the most commonly observed protonated ions generated in LC-MS based lipidomics workflow has been less explored...

In this work, the synthesis of acylglycerides with high nutritional value was carried out by enzymatic esterification at sn-2 position of 1,3-dicaprin with palmitic acid. A comparative study of the performance of several biocatalysts according to the obtained products was carried out. The results obtained with several of the biocatalysts evaluated are very interesting, and it would be possible to use them to obtain a mixture of acylglycerides to act as a fat substitute. The final product was composed of about 90% of nutritionally attractive glycerides...

High-purity isohexane containing 88.12% 2-methylpentane, which has a higher polarity than industrial hexane, was selected to selectively fractionate mango kernel fat to produce 1,3-distearoyl-2-oleoyl-glycerol (SOS)-rich fat. The three-stage fractionation process was optimized by considering the stearin yield and its SOS content to obtain a third stearin (TS). This fat contained a high percentage of SOS (69.2%) with only 0.8% diacylglycerol. Mass spectra and sn-2 fatty acid analyses further revealed that the TS was mainly composed of symmetrical monounsaturated triacylglycerols...

Protein molecular dynamics interpretation of the standard R1, R2, and heteronuclear NOE relaxation measurements has typically been limited to a single S(2) order parameter which is often insufficient to characterize the rich content of these NMR experiments. In the absence of exchange linebroadening, an optimized reduced spectral density analysis of these measurements can yield spectral density values at three distinct frequencies. Surprisingly, these three discrete spectral density values have proven to be sufficient for a Larmor frequency-selective order parameter analysis of the 223 methine and methylene H-C bonds of the B3 domain of Protein G (GB3) to accurately back-calculate the entire curve of the corresponding bond vector autocorrelation functions upon which the NMR relaxation behavior depends...

Thermodynamic information about the metal-ligand interaction between Fe(3+), Zn(2+), Cu(2+) and Sn(2+), and a biodegradable ligand as MGDA is reported. The speciation scheme was obtained by means of potentiometric measurements and isothermal titration calorimetry (to determine enthalpy changes) in NaCl medium. The formation of the ML and MLOH species was evidenced for all the metal cations, and for Fe(3+) also the ML2 and ML(OH)2 were found. The relative stability, for the ML species, follows the order: Sn(2+) > Fe(3+) > Cu(2+) > Zn(2+)...

Streptococcus equi subsp. equi (S. equi) is the causative agent of strangles, one of the most frequently diagnosed infectious diseases of horses worldwide. Phospholipase A2 toxins (PLA2) cleave phospholipid molecules at position sn-2 contributing to the production of leukotrienes that are important inflammatory mediators. Two homologous phospholipases, SlaA and SlaB are encoded by the S. equi genome suggesting that PLA2 toxins may contribute to its pathogenicity. Here we report the immunogenicity and role of PLA2 toxins during natural and experimental infection of horses with S...
