cis-10-Heptadecenoic acid is a C17:1 monounsaturated fatty acid which is a minor constituent of ruminant fats. It has been inspected for potential antitumor activity and reported to inhibit HL-60 cell proliferation having an IC50 value of 302 µM and prevent LPS-induced tumor necrosis factor production from mouse macrophages.
10Z-Heptadecenoic acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid along with an unsaturated double bond at the 10th carbon. Heptadecanoic acid also known as margaric acid is a saturated fatty acid. The molecular formula of Heptadecenoic acid is CH3(CH2)15COOH. It forms as a trace component of the fat and milkfat of ruminants but does not occur in any natural vegetable or animal fat at concentrations over half a percent. Salts and esters of heptadecanoic acid are called heptadecanoates.
