Biosynthesis of n-3 fatty acids in Nile tilapia

 

n-3 essential fatty acids in Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus: Bioconverting LNA to DHA is relatively efficient and the LC-PUFA biosynthetic pathway is substrate limited in juvenile fish


This paper is an excellent study on the biosynthesis of n-3 fatty acids  inn Nile tilapia and gives us some insight how we could enhance this anabolism of fatty acids with the view to improve cardioprotective properties.
