The long-chain monounsaturated cetoleic acid improves the efficiency of the -3 fatty acid metabolic pathway in Atlantic salmon and human HepG2 cells.

Br J Nutr 2019 10 3;122(7):755-768. Epub 2019 Jul 3.

Nofima, NO-1431 Ås, Norway.

The present study aimed to determine if the long-chain MUFA cetoleic acid (22 : 1n-11) can improve the capacity to synthesise the health-promoting n-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in human and fish models. Human hepatocytes (HepG2) and salmon primary hepatocytes were first enriched with cetoleic acid, and thereafter their capacities to convert radio-labelled 18 : 3n-3 (α-linolenic acid, ALA) to EPA and DHA were measured. Increased endogenous levels of cetoleic acid led to increased production of radio-labelled EPA + DHA in HepG2 by 40 % and EPA in salmon hepatocytes by 12 %. Read More

Chemical and Biological Technologies for Health (UTCBS), CNRS UMR8258, INSERM U1022, Paris Descartes University, Sorbonne-Paris-Cité, Chimie ParisTech, PSL Research University, School of Pharmacy, Paris, France. Electronic address:

Lactosylated albumin is currently used as a radiopharmaceutical agent to image the liver asialoglycoprotein receptors and quantify hepatic liver function in various diseases. A lactosylated protein (LACTAL) conjugate showed excellent liver uptake compared to non-lactosylated protein and a high signal to noise ratio, based on the biodistribution in mice using Tc-scintigraphy. However, in the laboratory, it is useful to have a method that can be used in daily practice to quantify cellular targeting or biodistribution. Read More

Research group Requirement and Welfare, Institute of Marine Research, Nordnes gaten 50, 5005, Bergen, Norway.

Several feeding trials with Atlantic salmon fed naturally high phytosterol concentrations due to dietary rapeseed oil inclusion have shown changes in lipid metabolism and increased hepatic lipid storage in the fish. An in vitro trial with Atlantic salmon hepatocytes was, therefore, performed to study the possible direct effects of phytosterols on lipid storage and metabolism. The isolated hepatocytes were exposed to seven different sterol treatments and gene expression, as well as lipid accumulation by Oil Red O dyeing, was assessed. Read More

National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research, Nordnesboder 1-2, N-5005 Bergen, Norway.

An emerging focus in environmental toxicology is how climate change will alter bioavailability and uptake of contaminants in organisms. Ectothermic animals unable to adjust their temperature by local migration, such as farmed fish kept in net pens, may become more vulnerable to contaminants in warmer seas. The aim of this work was to study cadmium (Cd) toxicity in cells obtained from fish acclimated to sub-optimal growth temperature. Read More

National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research, Norway.

Extended use of plant ingredients in Atlantic salmon farming has increased the need for knowledge on the effects of new nutrients and contaminants in plant based feeds on fish health and nutrient-contaminant interactions. Primary Atlantic salmon hepatocytes were exposed to a mixture of PAHs and pesticides alone or in combination with the nutrients ARA, EPA, α-tocopherol, and γ-tocopherol according to a factorial design.

Aquaculture 2015 Jul;444:1-12

Institute of Aquaculture, School of Natural Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling FK9 4LA, United Kingdom.

Currently, one alternative for dietary fish oil (FO) in aquafeeds is vegetable oils (VO) that are devoid of omega-3 (n-3) long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs). Entirely new sources of n-3 LC-PUFA such as eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids through de novo production are a potential solution to fill the gap between supply and demand of these important nutrients. was metabolically engineered to produce a seed oil (ECO) with > 20% EPA and its potential to substitute for FO in Atlantic salmon feeds was tested.
