Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The triglycerides of Myrica carolinensis fruit coat fat (bayberry tallow) contain only three fatty acids: myristic (21.5 mole %), palmitic (77.5%), and stearic (1.0%). The component triglycerides of this simple fat were determined by gas-liquid chromatography and pancreatic lipase hydrolysis. Triglycerides with carbon numbers 42, 44, 46, 48, and 50 were found. Lipase hydrolysis showed a preferential but not exclusive esterification of myristic acid at the 2-position. The triglyceride composition calculated from the combined experimental results did not conform to a random or 1,3-random-2-random distribution pattern. Regional differences in fatty acid and triglyceride composition within the fruit coat were also observed. © 1965, American Oil Chemists’ Society. All rights reserved.
