Online Inquiry

Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. As the two families of essential fatty acids, animals must ingest linoleic acid from diet because the body requires them but cannot synthesize them by themselves. In the body linoleic acid is a metabolic precursor to some long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids via desaturation and elongation, which happen in the endoplasmic except for the final step which requires translocation to peroxisomes for partial beta-oxidation. Because of this, linoleic acid metabolism can provide many kinds of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which is necessary for good health. Therefore, aberrant linoleic acid metabolism in the procedure of desaturation and elongation lead to various diseases in animals. Scientists at Creative Proteomics utilize a highly quantitative method with LC-MS for the determination of Linoleic Acid levels in various samples.
