Biochem/physiol Actions

Myristate (tetradecanoic acid) is a saturated (C14:0) medium-chain fatty acid. Sodium myristate is used in surfactant, cholloidal and hydrophobic/absorption chemistry involving molecules such as proteins.
Myristic acid is commonly added via a covalent linkage to the N-terminal glycine of many eukaryotic and viral proteins, a process called myristoylation. Myristoylation enables proteins to bind to cell membranes and facilitates protein-protein interactions. Myristolyation of proteins affect many cellular functions and thus has implications in health and disease .

Aqueous sodium myristate solutions have been shown to have unusually low dynamic tensions (1-10 mN/m) under pulsating area conditions. These solutions have no sharp solubility limit, evidently because they are protonated (or "hydrolyzed") to form the much less soluble myristic

The competitive adsorption of proteins and surfactants has applications to chromatographic systems and biological materials. Adsorption for systems of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and sodium myristate (SM) was investigated with in-situ ATR-IR spectroscopy and ex-situ ellipsometry. The results were used

Colloidal two-dimensional (2D) nanoplatelet heterostructures are particularly interesting as they combine strong confinement of excitons in 2D materials with a wide range of possible semiconductor junctions due to a template-free, solution-based growth. Here, we present the synthesis of a ternary
