Additional information


Using Myristic acid-BSA (Myr-BSA) conjugate, antibody specificity was performed by using an ELISA test by competition experiments:

Myristic acid-BSA Kd around 10-8 M very high affinity and specificity

Low affinity with close competitors:

Competitors Affinity compared to Myr-BSA
Arachidonic acid-BSA 20 times lower low affinity
Linoleic acid-BSA 30 times lower low affinity
Oleic acid-BSA 35 times lower low affinity
Lauric acid-BSA 160 times lower low affinity
Capric acid-BSA 300 times lower low affinity

The antibody recognizes the conjugated form of the small molecule, not the free form (see protocol for specific tissue preparation).

Additional Information

Host species





Fatty acids & related compounds




Conjugated Myristic acid


Synthetic Myristic acid conjugated to bovine serum albumin (BSA)

Species reactivity

The antibody recognizes the target in all species, vertebrates (included humans) and invertebrates, because of the universality of the small molecule


Polyclonal antibody was preabsorbed on protein carriers and purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation
