Abstract
A 19-carbon conjugated diene, conjugated nonadecadienoic acid (CNA), inhibited heparin-releasable lipoprotein lipase and reduced lipid stores in 3T3-L1 adipocytes similarly to conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). When fed to growing mice (0.3% of diet) CNA reduced body fat by 81% whereas CLA reduced body fat by 25%. CLA and CNA differ in length by one carbon atom so they are unlikely to share a common metabolite to account for these observations.
