Biochem/physiol Actions

Tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA) is known to modulate lipid homeostasis. TTA can increase fatty acid oxidation and ketogenesis, which can subsequently prevent adiposity and insulin resistance. Furthermore, TTA can enhance cardiac functions during experimental heart failure.
PPARα agonist; activation in ranking order: PPARδ > PPARα > PPARγ

Tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA) is a non-beta-oxidizable fatty acid analog, which potently regulates lipid homeostasis. Here we evaluate the ability of TTA to prevent diet-induced and genetically determined adiposity and insulin resistance. In Wistar rats fed a high fat diet, TTA...

Changes in myocardial metabolism, including a shift from fatty acid to glucose utilization and changes in fatty acid availability and composition are characteristics of heart failure development. Tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA) is a fatty acid analogue lacking the ability to undergo...
