Chemical Information
Name3-Hydroxytetradecanedioic acid
Description3-Hydroxytetradecanedioic acid is an unusual 3-hydroxydicarboxylic acid human metabolite found occasionally in urine. (PMID 2925825) High levels of 3-Hydroxytetradecanedioic acid (and other 3-hydroxydicarboxylic acids) were detected in the urine of a patient with 3-hydroxydicarboxylic aciduria (PMID 1507493), due to acute intoxication associated with hopantenate occurs owing to pantothenic acid deficiency or the inhibition of CoA-requiring reactions during stress, i.e., infection, prolonged fasting, or malnutrition (PMID 2026687), and in a patient with thanatophoric dysplasia due to enhanced but incomplete oxidation of fatty acid, a consequence of a heterozygous point mutation, S249C in the fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 gene.
