  • Abstract:

    Background Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an essential fatty acid required for brain function. The brain has limited ability to synthesise DHA and therefore plasma-derived DHA must be transported across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Given the low aqueous solubility of DHA, an intracellular carrier protein may be essential to shuttle DHA across the ..
