Application

γ-linolenic acid has been used as an analytical standard in gas chromatography. It may be used in nutritional studies regarding weight regain and as a possible tumor suppression agent. γ-linolenic acid is used in studies on the mechanisms and prevention of oxidation/peroxidation of unsaturated fatty acids.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Gamma-linolenate (C18:6,9,12) differs from α-linolenate (C18:9,12,15) in the positions of the double bonds.

γ-Linolenic acid , a polyunsaturated fatty acid, exerts anti-inflammatory effect by decreasing both interleukin (IL) 6 and IL-8 production in the human enterocyte-like cell line Caco-2 and humandendritic cells in vitro .
