Fig. 1. Human FA elongation pathways. The FA elongation pathways of SFAs, MUFAs and PUFAs are illustrated. ELOVL isozymes (E1-E7) responsible for each elongation step are indicated. Parentheses denote ELOVLs that exhibit weak activity toward the indicated substrates. Δ5, Δ6 and Δ9 represent Δ5-, Δ6- and Δ9-desaturase, respectively. FA: fatty acid; SFA: saturated FA; MUFA: monounsaturated FA; PUFA: polyunsaturated FA.
