Arachidonic acid Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionArachidonic acid belongs to a kind of polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, which is highly biologically relevant. It is abundantly distributed in brain, muscles and liver. It is the precursor for all prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes. Most cellular arachidonic acid is esterified in the membrane phospholipids. It is an important second messenger of cellular signalling participating in the regulation of signaling enzymes including PLC-γ, PLC-δ, and PKC-α, -β, and -γ isoforms. In addition, arachidonic acid acts as key inflammatory intermediate as well as avasodilator. Generally, the body can synthesize the arachidonic acid through linoleic acid. However, upon linoleic acid deficiency, it is necessary to supplement arachidonic acid from the diets. Food sources of arachidonic acid include meat, eggs and some fishes. Alternatively, we can also have arachidonic acid supplements.
Chemical Propertiesliquid
UsesAn unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid constituent of the phospholipids of cell membranes
UsesArachidonic Acid is an essential fatty acid and a precursor in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes. Arachidonic Acid occurs in liver, brain, glandular organs, and depot fats of animals, in small amounts in human depot fats, and Arachidonic Acid is also a constituent of animal phosphatides.
Usesarachidonic acid is an ingredient with skin-smoothing, emollient, and healing properties. Arachidonic acid is an omega-6 essential fatty acid naturally occurring in the skin and considered critical for appropriate skin metabolism. It is a constituent of vitamin F.
DefinitionChEBI: A long-chain fatty acid that is a C20, polyunsaturated fatty acid having four (Z)-double bonds at positions 5, 8, 11 and 14.
Biological ActivityEndogenous free fatty acid released from phospholipids by phospholipase A 2 . Important cellular signaling mediator and precursor of eicosanoids. Metabolized by lipoxygenases, cyclooxygenases and cytochrome P450 monooxygenases.
