Chemical Information
name Myristoleic acid
description Occurs in natural fats, e.g. Cottonseed oil Myristoleic acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid that represent approximately 0.3 - 0.7% of the total fatty acid composition of adipose tissue triacylglycerol in human. (PMID 10393134); It has been suggested that his cytotoxic and effective cell death inducer activity could be used for the treatment of prostate cancer. (PMID 11304730); Myristoleic acid, or 9-tetradecenoic acid, is an omega-5 fatty acid. It is biosynthesized from myristic acid by the enzyme delta-9 desaturase, but it is uncommon in nature. One of the major sources of this fatty acid is the seed oil from plants of the genus Myristicaceae, comprising up to 30 per cent of the oil in some species.
