Post Lipogenesis in a Neurone



Good morning everyone,

I can't seem to find answers to these questions in my books.

1/ Does a neuron use lipogenesis?
2/ Can fatty acids pass the blood-brain barrier?
3/ What is the role of the Smooth Endoplasmic reticulum in a neurone?

Thanks in advance for future answers!

Default Re: Lipogenesis in a Neurone

The human brain is more than 60% of the fat composition, which is intertwined by the one billion cell composed of a consortium. One of the cells called nerve cells, or neurons, which transmit electrical signals to the brain is responsible for the ministries and other body parts. Around each neuron has a protective film called lipid membrane. The lipid membrane containing two composite layer consists of phospholipids. Each layer has a high degree of phospholipid fatty acids and a highly unsaturated fatty acids. You can guess: that highly unsaturated fatty acid is DHA.
