24985009 Minor allele homozygotes and heterozygotes of rs174455 in FADS3 gene had lower levels of 22:5 omega-3, 20:4 omega-6, and Delta5desaturase activity in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
22877655 genetic association study in maternal/child dyads in England: Data suggest that SNPs in FADS3 (and in FADS1/FADS2) influence fetal fatty acid metabolism; both maternal and child FADS genotypes/haplotypes influence cord plasma long-chain fatty acids.
22398025 Data suggest that FADS3 alternative transcripts/splicing are up-regulated in liver by dietary docosahexaenoic/arachidonic acids by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARg)-dependent mechanism unrelated to other desaturases (FADS1/2).
22082156 Knockdown of fatty acid desaturase 3 (FADS3) by siRNA enhances the early stages of HIV-1 replication in HeLa-CD4 cells infected with viral pseudotypes HIV89.6R and HIV8.2N
