Gene context of oleic acid

  • Our screens identified excipients previously reported to inhibit P-glycoprotein, such as PEG stearates, PEG fatty acid esters, polysorbates, and poloxamers [15].
  • Test 1 revealed nearly identical wear rates for acetabular cups with molecular weights in two distinct ranges, as well as for cups with molecular weights in the same range but with or without calcium stearate added [10].
  • In the fatty acyl esters, percentages of stearates (A1--18:0 and A2--18:0) increased at the expense of the other fatty acyl esters [16].
  • The ESR spectra of a series of chain-labelled doxyl stearic acids (5-, 7-, 12- and 16-DSA) and doxyl methyl stearates (5-, 7-, 12- and 16-DMS) bound to the high-affinity binding sites of bovine serum albumin (BSA) have been analyzed using nonlinear least-squares fitting of slow-motional ESR stimulation [17].
