Application

Oleic Acid-Albumin from bovine serum has been used: as a component of the Dulbecco′s modified Eagle′s medium (DMEM) to study adipogenic differentiation in chicken embryonic fibroblast cell lines, to study its effects on benign prostate epithelial cells as a component of the cell culture medium to quantify triglycerides in human epithelial colorectal adenocarcinoma cells

Biochem/physiol Actions

Fatty Acid-Albumin - complexes are used as alternative sources of lipids in the development of serum-free media. Fatty acids bind to serum proteins in high proportions. Serum proteins may help in the release of beneficial fatty acids and bind those that are inhibitory. Oleic acid bound to bovine serum albumin (BSA) shows a positive effect on the growth of various cells.
