Neutrophils are generally the first immune cells recruited during the development of sterile or microbial inflammation. As these cells express many innate immune receptors with the potential to directly recognize microbial or endogenous signals, we set out to assess whether
Raissa Lerner et al.

Beside diverse therapeutic properties of palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) including: neuroprotection, inflammation and pain alleviation, prophylactic effects have also been reported in animal models of infections, inflammation, and neurological diseases. The availability of PEA as (ultra)micronized nutraceutical formulations with reportedly no side

Biomedicines, 8(9) (2020-09-17)
Dry eye syndrome (DES) is characterized by decreased tear production and stability, leading to desiccating stress, inflammation and corneal damage. DES treatment may involve targeting the contributing inflammatory pathways mediated by polyunsaturated fatty acids and their derivatives, oxylipins. Here, using

The identification of new biomarkers (e.g., metabolic biomarkers) will facilitate not only the diagnosis of stroke but also the differentiation of stroke subtypes, especially the discrimination of ischaemic stroke from intracerebral hemorrhage. Herein, we develop for the first time an

Vitamin E (α-tocopherol; VitE) is a lipophilic antioxidant required for normal embryonic development in vertebrates, but the long-term effects of embryonic VitE deficiency, and whether they are ameliorated by feeding VitE-adequate diets, remain unknown. We addressed these questions using a
Valentina Spigoni et al.
Food & function, 5(8), 1881-1890 (2014-06-20)
Recent data suggest that n-3 PUFA exert beneficial effects on endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) biology. We sought to investigate whether these effects might be mediated by enhanced EPC in vitro function and/or in vivo bioavailability. CACs and late-outgrowth EPCs were
Gregory G Martin et al.
Lipids, 54(10), 583-601 (2019-09-06)
Brain endocannabinoids (EC) such as arachidonoylethanolamine (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) primarily originate from serum arachidonic acid (ARA), whose level is regulated in part by a cytosolic ARA-binding protein, that is, liver fatty acid binding protein-1 (FABP1), not expressed in the
Measurement of Enzymatic and Nonenzymatic Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Oxidation Products in Plasma and Urine of Macular Degeneration Using LC-QTOF-MS/MS.
Leung, et al.

Ian de Bus et al.
Biochimica et biophysica acta. Molecular and cell biology of lipids, 1866(6), 158908-158908 (2021-02-22)
Docosahexaenoyl ethanolamide (DHEA), the ethanolamine conjugate of the n-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid, is endogenously present in the human circulation and in tissues. Its immunomodulating properties have been (partly) attributed to an interaction with the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2)
Tivadar Orban et al.
FASEB journal : official publication of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, 29(11), 4579-4588 (2015-07-19)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a neurodegenerative disease that causes adult-onset blindness. There are 2 forms of this progressive disease: wet and dry. Currently there is no cure for AMD, but several treatment options have started to emerge making early
Jennifer T Wolstenholme et al.
Alcoholism, clinical and experimental research (2018-05-23)
Complex interactions between environmental and genetic factors influence the risk of developing alcohol use disorder (AUD) in humans. To date, studies of the impact of environment on AUD risk have primarily focused on psychological characteristics or on the effects of
Subhadip Senapati et al.
Biochimica et biophysica acta, 1860(6), 1403-1413 (2018-04-08)
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is enriched in photoreceptor cell membranes. DHA deficiency impairs vision due to photoreceptor cell dysfunction, which is caused, at least in part, by reduced activity of rhodopsin, the light receptor that initiates phototransduction. It is unclear how
Zhiying Wang et al.
Analytica chimica acta, 984, 151-161 (2017-08-28)
Lipid mediators (LMs) are a class of bioactive metabolites of the essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), which are involved in many physiological processes. Their quantification in biological samples is critical for understanding their functions in lifestyle and chronic diseases, such
Suzumi M Tokuoka et al.
Rapid communications in mass spectrometry : RCM, 34(13), e8814-e8814 (2020-04-21)
The electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) methodology often shows poor ionization reproducibility in the analysis of biological samples. Therefore, normalization of the measured peak intensities is essential. It is believed that quantitative data with high reproducibility can be obtained by
Song Hong et al.
American journal of physiology. Cell physiology, 307(11), C1058-C1067 (2014-10-03)
Dysfunction of macrophages (MΦs) in diabetic wounds impairs the healing. MΦs produce anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving neuroprotectin/protectin D1 (NPD1/PD1, 10R,17S-dihydroxy-docosa-4Z,7Z,11E,13E,15Z,19Z-hexaenoic acid); however, little is known about endogenous NPD1 biosynthesis by MΦs and the actions of NPD1 on diabetic MΦ functions in
Mauro Toledo Marrelli et al.
Malaria journal, 19(1), 254-254 (2020-07-16)
Malaria is one of the most prevalent infectious disease in the world with 3.2 billion humans at risk. Malaria causes splenomegaly and damage in other organs including skeletal muscles. Skeletal muscles comprise nearly 50% of the human body and are

Pro-resolving lipid mediators are a class of endogenously synthesized molecules derived from different fatty acids, such as arachidonic, docosahexaenoic or eicosapentaenoic acid, which are derived into four different product families: lipoxins, resolvins, maresins and protectins. For quantitation of these compounds
