- ... Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) possesses various bioactivities. However, the effects of DHA on adipocyte homeostasis remain unclear. Here the effects of DHA (0, 50, 100, 150 µM) on the apoptosis of mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes was investigated in order to elucidate potential mechanisms. It was shown that DHA decreased adipocyte viability, induced apoptosis, and reduced the cellular lipid content. DHA trea ...
