The effect of conjugated linoleic acid on lipid metabolism in the hamster and the sheep
Flux, Claire Louise (2005) The effect of conjugated linoleic acid on lipid metabolism in the hamster and the sheep. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The term conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) refers to a range of geometric and positional isomers of linoleic acid. Recent research suggests a variety of potential health benefits with consumption of dietary CLA. These include a reduction in body fat deposition that has been demonstrated in a number of monogastric species including the mouse, rat, hamster and pig. This thesis describes the effects of CLA on lipid metabolism in sheep, where CLA may be useful in reducing carcass fat and improving fatty acid profile. The results are contrasted with those in the hamster, a model monogastric species, previously shown to respond to CLA.
