General description

Fatty aldehydes are enzymatically converted to fatty alcohols and fatty acids. When assessing S1P lyase enzymatic activity, the estimation of fatty aldehyde stability during the reaction is required. The (2E)-hexadecenal(d5) (857461) is suitable as the internal standard for LC/MS/MS approaches to quantify the product of S1P degradation by S1P lyase, (2E)-hexadecenal; however, a natural (2E)-hexadecenal (857469) is needed to evaluate its stability during enzymatic reaction. The method describing the details of the use of both (2E)-hexadecenal(d5) and (2E)-hexadecenal for LC/MS/MS-based characterization of S1P lyase reaction is in preparation for publication by Berdyshev et al.Personal communication from Evgeny Berdyshev, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, University of Illinois at Chicago.
