Structure and amount of positional isomers of monounsaturated fatty acids in human depot fat

, : Structure and amount of positional isomers of monounsaturated fatty acids in human depot fat. Journal of Lipid Research 9(6): 730-732

Positional isomers of decenoic, dodecenoic, and tetradecenoic acids of human adipose tissue have been separated by gas-liquid chromatography and their amounts determined by oxidative cleavage. The following acids have been shown to be present: 7-decenoic, 8-decenoic, 9-decenoic, 7-, 8-, and 9-dodecenoic, and 7-, 8-, 9-, and 11-tetradecenoic acids. Among all isomers of the even-numbered acids from C(10) to C(18) the cis-9-isomer predominates. With increasing chain length, however, the content of 9-isomer decreases and the number of isomers increases. No 3- or 5-enoic acids could be detected. The origin and biosynthesis of all isomers are discussed.
