Series: Biochemistry Research Trends, Nutrition and Diet Research Progress

In this book, the authors present topical research from across the globe in the study of the types, roles and health effects of fatty acids. Topics discussed include the chemical structure and classification of fatty acids; n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in brain resistance to aging; the role of dietary fatty acids for developmental and disease states in domestic animals; the effects of fatty acid synthase on fatty acids biogenesis in metabolic syndrome and lipotoxicity on human pancreatic beta-cells.
