Two Bacillus subtilis mutants defective in branched-chain alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase can grow when 2-methylbutyrate is provided in trypticase soy medium. Both enantiomers of the acid supported growth of the mutants but the (S)-(+)-isomer (natural) was more active than the (R)-(-)-isomer (unnatural).

Labeled 14-methylhexadecanoic acid was administered to normal rats, animals bearing the Walker 256 tumor at various stages of its growth and to tumor-resistant rats and its distribution in lipids (free fatty acids, triglycerides, phospholipids and cholesteryl esters) was studied during
