Objective. Both oleic acid (OA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) have been proposed to down-regulate cell proliferation of prostate, breast, and bladder cancer cells. However, direct evidence that OA and/or ALA suppresses to the development of esophageal cancer has not been studied. Also, no previous studies have evaluated how OA and/or ALA regulates malignant potential (cell proliferation, migration, colony formation and adhesion) and intracellular signaling pathways, and whether their effects might be synergistic and/or additive in esophageal cancer cells has not yet been elucidated.
