Biochem/physiol Actions

12-Methyltetradecanoic acid (12-methylmyristic acid) is an anteiso-C(15)-fatty acid used in studies on the properties and functions of medium-chain anteiso-fatty acids. 12-methyltetradecanoic acid is studied to understand its antibacterial properties. 12-methyltetradecanoic acid represses the extracellular production of surfactants required for swarming motility in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1.

Both the enantiomers of aseanostatin P5 (sarcinic acid), an inhibitor of myeloperoxidase (MPO) release from human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN), with high optical purity were synthesized by starting from (S)-2-methylbutanol and methyl (S)-3-hydroxy-2-methylpropanoate. They were converted to four diastereomers of aggreceride
