Descriptor ácido tióctico
Entry term(s) ácido lipoico
Scope note: Ácido octanoico con dos puentes sulfuro que en ocasiones recibe también la denominación de ácido pentanoico en algunos esquemas de denominación. Se biosintetiza mediante la disociación del ÁCIDO LINOLEICO y es una coenzima de la oxoglutarato deshidrogenasa (COMPLEJO CETOGLUTARATO DESHIDROGENASA). Se utiliza en SUPLEMENTOS DIETÉTICOS.

Tree number(s): D02.241.803
RDF Unique Identifier:
Scope note: An octanoic acid bridged with two sulfurs so that it is sometimes also called a pentanoic acid in some naming schemes. It is biosynthesized by cleavage of LINOLEIC ACID and is a coenzyme of oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (KETOGLUTARATE DEHYDROGENASE COMPLEX). It is used in DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS.
