1. Palmitic acid induces down-regulation of APOM expression, is mediated via the PPARβ/δ pathway.
2. Palmitic acid induces anxiety-like behavior in mice while increasing amygdala-based serotonin metabolism.
3. Dietary TAGs with an increased proportion of Palmitic acid in the sn-2 position do not have acute adverse effects on the insulin and glucose response to meals in healthy men and women, but they decrease GIP release.
4. Palmitic acid has a significant impact on proliferation and differentiation of NSCs in vitro and may be useful for elucidating the role of SFAs in regulating NSCs fate in physiological and pathological settings.
