Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

(±)-2-Hydroxyoctanoic acid inhibits purified medium-chain acyl-CoA synthetase from bovine liver mitochondria (Ki, 500 uM) with hexanoic acid as a substrate .

(±)-2-Hydroxyoctanoic acid is a mixture of the D and L-2-hydroxyoctanoic acid enantiomers. (±)-2-Hydroxyoctanoic acid may be used in the development of medium-chain hydroxy-fatty acid enantiomer separation and detection systems. 2-Hydroxyoctanoic acid may be used as an inhibitor to study the kinteics of medium chain acyl-CoA synthetase(s).
