General description

Methyl tricosanoate, also recognized as Tricosanoic acid methyl ester, represents the fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) form of tricosanoic acid. This odd-numbered long-chain fatty acid methyl ester is atypical in many biological systems, making it valuable as a biomarker. Tricosanoic acid is naturally synthesized in certain plants and mammals, including humans, where it predominates as a skin lipid. It can be found acylated to various glyco-, phospho-, and sphingolipids, including gangliosides. This fatty acid holds significance in biochemical, lipidomics, and metabolomics research applications.

Application

Methyl tricosanoate has been used as an internal standard to quantify fatty acids or fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs).

Features and Benefits

  • High-quality molecule suitable for mulitple research applications
  • Commonly employed in Metabolomics and Biochemical studies
