Marine Polar Lipids with Antithrombotic Activities

In our team, we have a strong interest on lipids that can inhibit platelet aggregation.
Few years ago, we had found these structures in sea bass.




Two days ago, we published our first salmon paper where the lipid structures have some striking similarities...


There is a theme there...
Nature is making polar lipids for a reason...
The more structural data we have on this theme make the "omega 3" and cholesterol approach weaker and weaker...
The polar head looks like an indispensable part of our approach linking polarity of lipids to their antithrombotic activities .
