Figure 1: Pathways of LC-PUFA synthesis from omega-6 and omega-3 essential PUFAs. ALA = α-Linoleic acid; AA = arachidonic acid; DGLA = dihomo-gamma-linoleic acid; DHA = docosahexaenoic acid; EPA = eicosapentaenoic acid; GLA = gamma-linoleic acid; LA = linoleic acid; SA = stearidonic acid; LC-PUFA = Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids
