Methyl 3-hydroxyheptadecanoate

3-Hydroxy C17:0 methyl ester

This product is a high purity 3-hydroxy fatty acid methyl ester that is ideal as a standard and for biological systems. This odd numbered fatty acid is unusual in many biological systems and can therefore often be used as a biomarker. 3- Hydroxyheptadecanoic acid has been used to characterize certain bacteria such as some gliding bacteria.1 3-Hydroxy fatty acids have been found to be converted to the omega-fatty acid by the enzyme CYP4F11 and then into dicarboxylic acids in vivo.2 3-hydroxy fatty acids are used as biomarkers for fatty acid oxidative disorders of both the long- and short-chain 3- hydroxy-acyl-CoA dehydrogenases.3,4
