Disease relevance of FA-C14:0

  • Labeling experiments with [3H]palmitic and [3H]myristic acids of African swine fever virus-infected Vero cells have shown that 11 proteins induced during infection are covalently bound to myristic acid and that palmitic acid was not attached to viral proteins [1].
  • On the other hand, Bu2-cyclic GMP did not affect the respiration induced by phagocytosis whereas it inhibited the respiration induced by the addition of myristic acid was inhibited by Bu2-cyclic AMP, which was similar to that with E. coli [2].
