Therefore, acyl groups defined as, for example, 34:1, almost certainly indicate mismatched acyl chains (18-carbon paired with 16-carbon chains) because 17-carbon acyl chains comprise, at best, a small fraction of the fatty acids in wheat plants (Chirkova et al., 1981).
Species differences in response to peroxisome proliferators: increasing human PPAR alpha expression levels in human cells is not sufficient for fatty acyl CoA oxidase responsiveness.
Screening of Plant Seedlings for the Synthesis of (Z)- 3-hexen-1-yl acetate via irreversible acyl transfer reaction
In this study, a total of eight compounds (Scheme-1) were synthesized including C2-C8 acyl and one benzyl derivative (Table-1), and their antimycobacterial activities were determined against M.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of introducing hydrophobic acyl groups with different chain length on the thermal properties of low molecular weight chitosan.

Three grams of acid-treated carbon fibers were immersed into the solution at 70CC for 24 h in order to complete the acyl chloride-functionalization.
The ORF sequence was identified in the gene sequence of Acyl lipid desaturases from Nostoc Sp.
The role of H125 was supported by activity assays that showed it to be critical for acyl transfer [27].
Peaks observed between [delta] 14 and [delta] 29 are due to the acyl side chains of triacylglycerols [24].
Fatty acid desaturases exist in all plants and can be classified into the following three groups according to their catalytic substrates [34]: (1) acyl-carrier protein desaturases, which are present in the plant cytoplasmic matrix, introduce double bonds into acyl carbon chains that bind to ACP; (2) acyl-CoA desaturases, which are present in the endoplasmic reticulum of plant cells, introduce double bonds into the acyl of acyl-CoA; and (3) acyl-lipid desaturases, which are present in the plasma membrane of plant cells, introduce double bonds into the acyl carbon chains of glycerolipids and glycolipids.
In the present study, a A6 fatty acyl desaturase (Fad)-like gene was identified and characterized with a full length of 1,491 bp, including a 39-bp 5'-UTR (untranslated region), a 108-bp 3'-UTR, and a 1,344 bp open reading frame encoding a 448 amino acid protein.
In the gel phase, van der Waals interactions cause highly ordered packing of the acyl chains, which can also be tilted with respect to the lipid bilayer normal, resulting in limited rotational and translational motions.
The identification of decrotonylation activity of Class I HDACs also supports the hypothesis that a histone deacetylase family protein could remove acyl moieties [28, 29].
