Metabolite Identification
Common Name(R)-3-Hydroxy-tetradecanoic acid
DescriptionIn humans fatty acids are predominantly formed in the liver and adipose tissue, and mammary glands during lactation. (R)-3-Hydroxy-tetradecanoic acid is an intermediate in fatty acid biosynthesis. Specifically, (R)-3-Hydroxy-tetradecanoic acid is converted from 3-Oxo-tetradecanoic acid via fatty-acid Synthase and 3-oxoacyl- [acyl-carrier-protein] reductase. (EC: 2.3.1.85 and EC:2.3.1.41).
