Myristoleic acid, a cytotoxic component in the extract from Serenoa repens, induces apoptosis and necrosis in human prostatic LNCaP cells[1].

In Vitro

Myristoleic acid induces both apoptosis (100 μg/mL, 89.5%) and necrosis (100 μg/mL, 81.8%) in LNCaP cells[1].
Myristoleic acid inhibited RANKL-induced osteoclast formation in vitro, especially, at later stages of differentiation[2].

Cell Proliferation Assay[1]

Cell Line: Human prostatic carcinoma LNCaP cells.
Concentration: 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 μg/mL.
Incubation Time: 24 h.
Result: When LNCaP cells were treated with 130 μg/mL extract or 100 μg/mL myristoleic acid for 24 hr, the proportion of apoptotic cells was 16.5 and 8.8%, and that of necrotic one was 46.8 and 81.8%, respectively.
In Vivo

Myristoleic acid (2 mg/kg, IP every 24 h for 4 days) prevents RANKL-induced bone loss and osteoclast formation in mice[2].

Animal Model: C57BL/6 mice at 5 weeks[2].
Dosage: 0.2, 2 mg/kg
Administration: IP every 24 h for 4 days.
Result: Co-administration of myristoleic acid suppressed generation of TRAP-positive osteoclasts induced by sRANKL and attenuated the increases in osteoclastic indices of Oc.S/BS, N.Oc/B. Pm and ES/BS in a dose-dependent manner.
