Chemical Information
FooDB NameHeptacosanoic acid
DescriptionHeptacosanoic acid is a fatty acid found in follicular casts (the abnormal impactation of a sebaceous follicle) implicated as the preclinical lesion of acne vulgaris. (PMID: 2940302) Heptacosanoic acid is one of the fatty acids found that contribute to a significant increase in the microviscosity of erythrocyte membranes in patients affected with adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) and adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN). (PMID: 6874949) Heptacosanoic acid has been found in the adrenal cortex and brain, in adrenoleukodystrophy and Zellweger syndrome in humans. (PMID: 3806133) Heptacosanoic acid has been found in blood and tissues of patients with different genetic peroxisomal disorder (Refsum's disease, X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy, neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy or Zellweger syndrome).
