Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Oxidation product of fatty acids in the diet, particularly phytanic acid. Phytanic acid is oxidized by alpha oxidation yielding pristanic acid, which is subsequently degraded by peroxisomal beta oxidation. Several inborn errors of metabolism with one or more deficiencies in the phytanic acid and pristanic acid breakdown have been described.
