Metabolite Identification
Common Name(R)-3-Hydroxyoctanoic acid
DescriptionIn humans fatty acids are predominantly formed in the liver and adipose tissue, and mammary glands during lactation. (R)-3-Hydroxyoctanoic acid is an intermediate in fatty acid biosynthesis. Specifically, (R)-3-Hydroxyoctanoic acid is converted from 3-Oxo-Octanoic acid via enzymes; fatty-acid Synthase and 3-oxoacyl- [acyl-carrier-protein] reductase. (E.C: 2.3.1.85 and E.C: 1.1.1.100).
