Human serum-derived hydroxy long-chain fatty acids exhibit anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activity.
Bottom Line: Enriched fractions resulted in poly-ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) cleavage, suppression of NFκB, induction of IκBα, and reduction in NOS2 mRNA transcript levels.Our results show that human serum extracts enriched with endogenous long-chain hydroxy fatty acids possess anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activity.These findings support a hypothesis that the reduction of these metabolites with age may result in a compromised ability to defend against uncontrolled cell growth and inflammation, and could therefore represent a significant risk for the development of CRC.

Mentions: We repeated the studies in MCF7 cells, which upon treatment with GTA+ve fraction showed gross cellular changes visible through phase-contrast microscopy including the appearance of apoptosomes and enlarged nuclei that were not observed with vehicle or GTA-ve treatments (Figures 4A, B and 4C). GTA+ve treatment in MCF-7 cells also resulted in the exclusive induction of the 24 kDa PARP cleavage product relative to vehicle or GTA-ve treatment (Figure 4D), further suggesting a pro-apoptotic activity of GTA-containing extracts.
