N-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids differentially enhance B-cell mediated immunity in lean and obese mice
(East Carolina University, 2014)
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are bioactive n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in fish oil that exert immunomodulatory effects. The general paradigm suggests n-3 PUFAs exert immunosuppressive ...
Using TIRF microscopy to analyze stimulated and basal state B-cell MHC II clustering in response to ageing and dietary fish oil
(East Carolina University, 2013)
This research focused on developing an efficient TIRF microscopy approach to evaluate membrane protein organization. More specifically, the data demonstrate that TIRF microscopy can detect changes in ex vivo B-cell MHC II ...
Fish oil disrupts B cell plasma membrane lateral organization and immunological synapse formation
(East Carolina University, 2012)
Fish oil has immunosuppressive properties that could provide treatment for numerous inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. The primary bioactive components of fish oil, which are the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) ...
