Disease relevance of heptadecanoic acid

  • 3. The amounts of total lipids and phospholipids were normal, but in all examined tissues the proportions of pentadecanoate (C15 fatty acid) and heptadecanoate (C17 fatty acid) were considerably increased in vitamin B12 deficiency [1].

High impact information on heptadecanoic acid

  • The overall recoveries of heptadecanoyl lipids added as internal standards during extraction were 94-96%, except for cholesteryl heptadecanoate where the recovery was 60% owing to incomplete hydrolysis [2].
