High impact information on tridecanoic acid

  • The unusual use of odd-number fatty acids, tridecanoic acid and deuterium-labeled tridecanoic acid, in these experiments showed the existence of a large isotope effect for the carbon-hydrogen bond cleavage at C11, but no isotope discrimination occurred in the removal of C12-H [1].
  • Cluster 1A strains also had a characteristic cellular fatty acid profile containing cyclo-(11,12)-nonadecanoic acid (C19:0 Cyclo C11-12) and missing tridecanoic acid (C13:0), heptadecanoic acid (C17:0), and cis-9-heptadecenoic acid (C17:1 CIS 9), which separated them from other pectolytic erwinias [2].
  • The compositions and structures of bacterial TAG vary considerably depending on the microorganism and on the carbon source, and unusual acyl moieties, such as phenyldecanoic acid and 4,8,12 trimethyl tridecanoic acid, are also included [3].
