Branched chain fatty acids with 15 and 17 carbon atoms occur abundantly in the lipids of Bacillus subtilis (natto) (2), in a species of Sarcina (3), in Micrococcus lysodeikticus (4), and in B. subtilis (ATCC 7059) (1). Recently Horning et al. (5) have presented evidence based on purified enzyme preparation from adipose tissue that branched long chain fatty acids are synthesized by condensation of short chain fatty acid coenzyme A esters with malonyl coensyme A in the presence of reduced… CONTINUE READING
