(1992) studied 0 and 10ppm of ractopamine and observed increased concentrations of the fatty acids palmitoleic acid, oleic acid, and a-linolenic acid, as well as decreased concentrations in other unidentified fatty acids.

This phenomenon might be associated with the decrease conversion of palmitic acid into palmitoleic acid and stearic acid into oleic acid or the reduction in the supply of these acids in the diet.
Regarding the concentration of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), palmitoleic acid (C16:1) exhibited higher concentration in the postfermentation and postripening phases for treatment [C.sup.+].

In decreasing order, linolenic acid (LA, 18:2n-6), oleic acid (18:1n-9), palmitic acid (16:0), alpha linoleic acid (18:3n-3), vaccenic acid (18:1n-7), palmitoleic acid (16:1n-7) and myristic acid (14:0) were the most abundant fatty acids detected.
In ruminants the SCD gene encodes for Stearoyl-CoA desaturase, an enzyme that regulates the proportions of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), considered healthy fatty acids, through the desaturation of palmitic acid (C16:0) to palmitoleic acid (C16:1) and the desaturation of stearic acid (C18:0) to oleic acid (C18:1) (Izadi et al., 2014).
There was a significant difference in the presence of saturated fatty acids, long-chain saturated fatty acids, palmitic acid, and palmitoleic acid, with higher levels at the time of diagnosis.
Moreover, palmitic acid (C16:0) and palmitoleic acid (C16:1) accounted together for more than 72.51% of fatty acids.
