Abstract

Fatty acids are a major source of lipids in the diet. Dietary fatty acids are able to significantly influence the concentration of serum cholesterol and thereby influence the risk of atherosclerosis. This brief review on fatty acids will present information on the structure and nomenclature of fatty acids, the metabolic pathways for fatty acids in cells, and the influence of dietary fatty acids on serum cholesterol levels.
