Application

Nervonic acid has been used as a synthetic lipid supplement in vitro to study about effect of the developmental diet in Drosophila lifespan.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nervonic acid (C24:1), a component of membrane sphingolipids and phosphatidylethanolamines, may be a useful predictor of chronic kidney disease mortality and diabetes. Nervonic acid oils are being studied for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and industrial applications. Nervonic acid is a major component of Lunaria oil.
