Introduction

guidelines
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)
