The stability of the membrane structure itself is influenced by the composition of the pair of acyl chains.
The peroxisome proliferator (PP) response element (PPRE) upstream of the human acyl CoA oxidase gene is inactive in a sample human population: significance for species differences in response to PPs.
Fang and Wong [32] reported that by using this reaction mode reaction rates increased 10 to 1000 times when compared to reversible acyl transfer.
The acyl and benzyl analogs of coniferyl alcohol were prepared by its reaction with acyl chlorides and benzyl chloride in acetone in presence of K2CO3 under reflux overnight [7].
This is similar to the study of Le Tien (2003) [19] which found that the hydrophobic interaction formed from the self-assembly association of longer acyl chain length (C8-14) could stabilize the chain organization.
Future studies have to address the molecular function of longer fatty acyl chains in HCV RNA replication and why PUFAs are needed for HCV particle production," the researchers concluded.
The mixture was then transferred into a three necked flask at 70[degrees]C for 24 h to complete the acyl chloride functionalization.
The acyltransferase responsible for the addition of this acyl chain was denoted LpxA and was found to be specific for UDP-N-acetylglucosamine and R-3-hydroxymyristoyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP), with little activity toward the S-enantiomer or the coenzyme A adduct of [beta]-hydroxymyristate or toward palmitoyl-ACP, myristoyl-ACP, or acyl chain acceptors with chains more than 3 carbons long at the 2-amine of glucosamine or with uracil substituted with any base other than thymine [21, 22].
In the [sup.1]H NMR data the terminal methyl protons from the acyl side chains of the triacylglycerols were observed at [delta] 0.84 while the methylene protons resonated at [delta] 1.58 (Figure 2, Table 2).
